What is naturally smart, remarkably simple AND saves energy?

October 23, 2012

Sunoptics® LightFlex™ brings new technology to daylight delivery.


Numerous studies have cited the benefits of increasing the amount of natural light to indoor spaces, but we don’t need them to tell us what we instinctively know; the quality and color of natural light just makes us feel better. It has also been shown to increase student test scores, increase productivity and attendance among workers, increase retail sales and contribute to a healthier environment. It offers all of these benefits and we haven’t even touched upon energy savings yet. Lighting control solutions that incorporate daylight harvesting are estimated to reduce the energy cost of lighting by well over 50%!


What If you could find a solution to bring natural daylight into a building without heat gain (during warmer months) or blinding glare? What if this solution also significantly reduced energy costs?


Sunoptics® is making this possible by introducing LightFlex ™, an innovative daylighting delivery system for suspended-ceiling applications. LightFlex features advanced design and superior technology that provides optimal daylight throughout the day, maximizing glare-free, 100%-diffused quality lighting while minimizing the power needed for electric light.


LightFlex works by capturing daylight. The patented Signature Series prismatic skylight captures low-angle sunlight and allows daylighting for more hours and on more days per year. The prisms go beyond capturing the available light; they refract and diffuse it without substantial visible light reduction, allowing for greater light harvest on both clear and cloudy days.


A tubular daylighting device, LightFLex includes a patent-pending optic sphere, a high-performance reflective light well and adjustable elbows to bypass obstructions between the roof and suspended ceilings to transport natural light into the building.


Adjustable louvers allow you to control the amount of daylight entering the room so that the perfect amount of light is delivered for the task at hand. You can have higher light levels when needed or lower levels for visual presentations or compliance with night sky requirements.


The LightFlex system also distributes light with diffuser options that match a large number of fixtures, such as the TLEDACLED and ALL LED, all from Acuity Brands. When standing in a room, it may be difficult to distinguish the difference between the electric fixture that is using energy, and the diffuser that is delivering natural light. All the building occupant really sees are lighting fixtures that are similar in style and blend in well with the interior design of the space.


Naturally smart, remarkably simple


LightFlex can play a central role as part of a complete lighting solution from Acuity Brands. These powerful solutions combine LED fixtures and/or newer florescent technology with digital control systems such as nLight or a system from Lighting Control & Design. The result is a smart solution from one manufacturer, with a single point of contact for a more simplified ordering and support process.
