A-Light, a manufacturer of specification-grade interior lighting solutions, is pleased to announce that its Atlas family has expanded to include acoustic panel options and surface wall mounting. The updates offer new design possibilities and widen the functional capabilities and scalability of the high-performance family of fixtures.
Atlas is now offered with a sound-absorbing acoustic panel option to assist with reducing ambient noise in modern open spaces with high ceilings. The Atlas series of lit and acoustic fixtures enables designers to combine light with sound absorption within a space to achieve a scalable, consistent design aesthetic.
The sound-absorbing panel is made of high-density polyethylene/polyester felt and is sourced from recycled bottles. When sound encounters the felt fibers, the fibers move slightly to absorb a portion of the sound. The technology contributes to the acoustic comfort of a space. This acoustic panel can be added while providing an indirect light source or no light source at all. In addition to A-Light’s four standard acoustic material colors of silver gray, red, navy, and charcoal, 26 premium colors are introduced. Designers can experiment with room-defining bursts of color across a ceiling or wall.
New mounting options include wall surface and suspended with centered aircraft cables, in addition to the existing pendant, ceiling surface, and recessed variations. Surface and suspended versions are available with direct, indirect, or direct/indirect distribution. Designers can mix these large-scale circular luminaires to create an impact in an open space. Specifiers can choose from three sizes, including 20″, 32″, and 48″ diameter, and a black, white, or titanium finish.
