This advanced louver design uniquely, effectively applies two properties: a matte specular finish on the louver’s parabolic shape assists in directing T5 Series illumination down onto video-teleconference subjects, providing defined longitudinal cut-off. On the opposite louver side, matte black-finish metal is oriented towards the front of a room. It mitigates glare in the eye of the presenter, a video camera and video screen. Luminaires are available with single-tube T5 standard or T5HO fluorescent lamping. MR-16 halogen accent lights are options at each end of architrave6 for decorative ambiance, are multi-circuited to turn off when wanted.a-light created these new-type video-teleconference luminaires to allow efficient low-energy concentration of all ceiling lighting into crisp, continuous minimalistic lines, free from overlighting and constant visual interruption from various lighting fixtures. An acoustical ceiling system using architrave6 organizes a ceiling, brings cohesiveness of design (forming a design element of its own), and provides low-glare energy-conserving light that lasts many thousands of hours, requires little to no routine maintenance.architrave6 video-teleconference lighting designs can be created vertically or horizontally along modern acoustical ceiling panels, or in standard gypsum ceilings. “Gyp” versions have a flangeless appearance for gypsum or tile to be “mudded” up to lens edges with a 5-inch cut-out; trim-flange versions have a clean .5-inch trim around the entire luminaire, powder-coated in any color. Multiple T-bar versions, shadow-molding flanges, and one-inch regressed gypsum ceiling models also available.Luminaires themselves are a mere 5-inches high by 5-inches wide, with a 4.75-inch aperture. Nominal lengths are 4-, 8- or 12-foot, and may also be specified in rows of any length. MR16 downlight accent modules are options, as are photocells and occupancy sensors.Construction & finishes: architrave6 luminaire housings are constructed from high-quality 60% recycled aluminum extrusions, are 100% recyclable.
