What is linear suspension lighting?
Linear suspension lighting describes the mount-type of linear architectural lighting fixtures using aircraft cable suspension kits. These suspension kits allow suspension from 48 inches up to 120 inches from the ceiling.
What is linear LED lighting?
Linear LED lighting provides Light-Emitting Diode (LED) illumination through symmetrical and asymmetrical linear fixture shapes.
Is LED linear suspension lighting the same as LED linear pendant lighting?
Yes. They describe the same category of lighting fixtures.
Can linear pendants direct light up as well as down?
Yes. Our linear suspension lighting products allow for configuring uplighting as well as downlighting.
What is uplighting?
An uplight is a light fixture that directs light up toward the ceiling. Uplighting can also be used to highlight ceiling details, such as beams, pipes and other distinctive ceiling infrastructure.
What is indirect lighting?
Indirect lighting is light reflected from another surface.
Are indirect lights uplights?
No. The linear product design may aim LEDs at a reflector inside the fixture to minimize glare of the downlight. There will be no uplight from this fixture on the ceiling. This type of fixture is known as an indirect downlight.
Which applications use uplighting?
Uplighting suits the office space or classroom because uplighting minimizes glare, making an easier, more conducive working environment.
Outdoor Linear Recessed Lighting
UL Listed for Damp Locations
Luminaires that are “Suitable for Damp Locations” are approved for areas that are regularly exposed to moisture and condensation. These fixtures can safely handle limited amounts of moisture on, in, and around their electrical components. This rating also encompasses areas that are partially protected from water. However, it does not cover direct water contact.
Damp location listed LED lights are frequently used indoors for laundry rooms, over showers and bathtubs, utility rooms, unfinished basements, and similar areas. They can be used outdoors in areas that are protected, such as covered patios or porches, as these locations are usually not at risk of direct rain or snow exposure. These lights typically cost more than dry location lights because more advanced construction is required to meet the higher safety standards.
UL Listed for Wet Locations
Fixtures and lamps that are “Suitable for Wet Locations” can be installed anywhere that liquids might come in direct contact with the electronics. It could be a slow drip, a strong flow or anything in-between. They are typically used outdoors for things such as site lighting, wall packs, open-air decks, walkway lights, gazebos, signs, and holiday lights.
