Acuity Brands’ new LightFlex CCT concept system from Sunoptics allows the patented daylighting system to achieve colour temperatures similar to those utilized in commercial lighting systems — a first in the daylighting industry. This enhanced colour quality creates a warmer, smoother, more uniform colour, making it ideal for daylighting applications where enhanced aesthetics are desired.
The LightFlex CCT is a tubular prismatic daylighting solution for suspended-ceiling applications. It uses a patented remote phosphor panel to integrate seamlessly with electric light fixtures in shared environments. The colour temperature of LightFlex CCT will range on average between 3600-3700 Kelvin depending on the time of day, which closely mirrors commercial lighting systems in the 3500K to 4000K range. This integration enables architects and lighting designers to minimize the colour temperature variation between the electric and natural light sources.
Acuity daylighting product solutions for commercial buildings feature prismatic skylights, LED lighting and integrated lighting controls, such as photocontrol and occupancy sensing, which can typically reduce electric lighting costs by 80% or more. Along with energy savings, many studies have shown the human benefits daylighting has on building occupants, including reduced absenteeism, improved well-being and higher productivity.
