CSL Lighting, a division of Hudson Valley Lighting Group (HVLG) and leading manufacturer of high-performance, architecturally-driven lighting solutions for commercial and residential spaces, announced the debut of the Acrobat Wall Wash Optic System at Lightovation in Dallas this month, its latest addition to the Acrobat™ Downlight product line. The innovative new technology goes beyond traditional track or downlights, delivering next-level precision in spotlighting art, sculptures, signage, and more.
Combined with the high-quality light source used across the entire Acrobat™ Downlight line, the Acrobat Wall Wash Optic is set to stand as one of the strongest solutions for wall wash on the market. Compared to alternatives on the market, the patented Wall Wash Optic offers new and improved advantages in combating light distribution to unintended areas by placing all of the light output onto the target, as well as a simplified user aim and adjustment experience with the LED module always aimed directly downwards.
The Wall Wash Optic’s installation process is also improved from its predecessor in that it easily pops into any standard Acrobat trim and converts into a wall wash trim, offering the end user the advantage of retrofitting with the wall wash fixture at any time after installation.
“After identifying limitations experienced with existing technologies, the CSL Engineering Team has created a Wall Wash system that breaks through the limitations with a new industry-defining product,” said Jacob Hawkins, VP of Engineering at CSL. “By making choices to focus on creating uniform light, setting an architecture around adjustability, and an intuitive user experience, we are proud to introduce our new Wall Wash system.”
The new system easily installs into any Standard (ST style) Acrobat reflector and can rotate to direct light easily, while a metal cover snaps in behind it to maintain a beautiful below-ceiling aesthetic. In addition, by pairing the Wall Wash Optic with the Acrobat adjustability, the user can produce a uniform wall wash with superior visual comfort for the viewer, completely blocking glare and eliminating harsh shadows on the illuminated surface.
