Hydrel Introduces Innovative FLAME Lighting Technique

June 15, 2023

Patent-pending optical engineering design offers two beams in one luminaire to create an impressive gradient effect on vertical surfaces

Hydrel recently announced the release of its innovative Flame lighting technique, which features two color distributions from a single fixture.

Flame is a new play on RGBW LED light. The patent-pending lighting technique comprises of a central beam with an outer beam that blends harmoniously and creates an impressive accent gradient effect. This unique optical engineering design is currently available with SAF7, SAF14, and SAF28 floodlights in RGBW.

Designers can also select 4000K color temperature for a play on white with a pop of color creating a sophisticated lighting design while enhancing various architectural elements.

Three lighting techniques may be selected.

Narrow Flame

With a 30° outer beam and 10° central beam, the Narrow option highlights vertical forms and surfaces such as trees, facades, and columns. It adds depth and captivates architectural elements with an accent gradient effect.

Wide Flame

The versatile Wide light distribution creates a blended gradient effect with its 70° outer and 30° central beams. It can showcase playful, blended textured surfaces, or emphasize an intentional spill on overhangs. The Wide option can uplight support columns with deliberate spill for roadway underside canopies or arches. Or it can spotlight for a smooth gradient effect across foliage.

Lotus Flame

Lotus light distribution creates a dramatic lighting effect along a wall or an overhang. Its 70° outer beam and 10° central beam showcases stark intentional individual columns while washing the overall facade.

Two independently controlled DMX circuits (with an optional RDM) manage the outer and center beams. As with the SAF architectural family, the SAF floodlight with Flame also offers Quad Tech that ensures no color separation and high-performance color mixing. Its optimal LED driver means no loss of lumen output. A selection of external accessories, finishes and mounting options are available to meet specific project needs.

Hydrel is also introducing a Flame visualizer, enabling lighting designers to experiment with the new lighting technique against different facades. Lighting designers can try out the product to gain a better understanding of how each lighting technique and color will behave.

About SAF Architectural Family

SAF is a complete architectural non-linear floodlight family for a variety of lighting requirements, including floodlighting, spotlight, silhouetting, grazing, and wall washing. A minimalist design across the family allows each fixture to remain discreet, with a focus on bold beams and precision illumination. All SAF fixtures feature Quad Tech, Taper-Lock, and Flow-Thru technology, the latter ensuring peak performance in wet conditions and extended life of the luminaire.
