If you are simply looking for a high quality acrylic replacement lens, we offer three options.
.060″ Matte White Acrylic
This is our workhorse material that 90% of our prints are made with. It is a relatively thick material compared to other lighting lens products, which can be .040 and thinner. It is pliable enough to stand up to mild abuse during installation, and can be cut to size with reasonable amount of skill.
Lumieo® is a premium white acrylic sheet which provides both high transmission and excellent lamp hiding capabilities. The diffusion comes from a combination of a very fine surface texture and special diffusing additives. It is a harder material than our .060 white acrylic. We run prints on it upon request, or when a larger size dictates it.
This is the thickest light lens diffuser material we provide. Lumieo .125 is quite durable and has a beautiful diffusing quality much like the .080 product.
The Panel Brightness rating assigned to each design is based on the average luminosity (0-Black to 255-White) of the digital artwork file. It can be used as a guideline to predict artwork light reduction of one design compared to another.
|Average Luminosity (0-255)||Assigned Brightness Number|
|Darkest||1 – 139||1|
|Dark||140 – 169||2|
|Medium||170 – 199||3|
|Light||200 – 219||4|
|Lightest||220 – 255||5|
Panel Brightness Examples:
#5: Best designs for kitchens, bathrooms and other rooms requiring the brightest light.
#4: Good designs for kitchens and bathrooms or in rooms where high light throughput is desired.
#3: Good for most lighting locations. Can work for kitchens in conjunction with a lot of other light sources (i.e., windows or canned lights).
#2: Not as dark as #1. Requires some task lighting in the room. Used commonly in treatment rooms.
#1: This design selection is for ambient lighting only with several other light sources for tasks.
