Noise-Reducing Luminaires

A-Light has expanded its family of acoustic luminaires with the introduction of the Absorb I fixture. Available with an uplight, downlight or uplight/downlight distribution, Absorb I 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 and a special insert within the structure, which provides additional sound absorption in a space.
