A-Light Expands Absorb Family with Absorb I

Suspended luminaire with vertical acoustic panels feature flanged profile design

Oceanside, CA, August 25, 2021 – A-Light™ (www.alights.com), an established best-in-class manufacturer of specification grade interior lighting solutions, is pleased to announce the expansion of the Absorb family of acoustic luminaires, with the introduction of its Absorb I fixture. The luminaire is available with uplight, downlight, or both.

Absorb I suspended luminaires are suitable for environments where ambient noise is a concern, such as offices, hospitality settings, or transitional areas with high ceilings or hard surfaces. The vertical acoustic panels feature a distinctive flanged design. A special insert within the structure, unique to Absorb I, provides additional sound absorption in a space.

Available in two and four-foot lengths, Absorb I luminaires enable designers to explore their creativity. Unique shapes can be created by connecting fixtures at different angles. Fixtures can be combined with a discreet joiner system hidden within the luminaire's felt for seamless designs. Continuous runs, squares or rectangles can be created using 90 or 180-degree angle joiners.

For more complex patterns, designers can collaborate with A-Light’s Design Assist team to connect fixtures at non-standard joiner angles, ranging between 90 to 180-degrees.

Thermoformed acoustic panels, available in four standard and 26 premium colors, enable designers to define a space or complement an existing aesthetic. The polyester felt panels, manufactured with recycled plastic bottles (PET), are 100% recyclable.

Designers can choose various light distributions to achieve the desired direct or indirect illumination. Absorb I’s direct lighting uses a Lambertian film optic for reduced glare, while indirect optics allow for more efficient and controlled light. Indirect optics can be selected with batwing wide, batwing extra-wide or asymmetric distribution. Unlit versions are also available for applications where more sound absorption is required while maintaining design consistency within a space.

Additional flexibility is available with a tunable white option or dim to warm, ranging from 5000K to 2700K, creating white light that shifts seamlessly between color temperatures. Absorb I luminaires may also be enabled with the nLight® AIR or nLight® Wired network control system to manage lighting throughout indoor spaces, reduce energy costs, and improve occupant comfort.
