New suspended luminaire system incorporates acoustic panels

Mar 05, 2010

The new Acoustic System suspended luminaire from Cooper Lighting has been designed to meet the needs of modern buildings that use an exposed-soffit ceiling construction to improve thermal management. It is particularly suitable for applications in universities, schools, colleges, call centres and conference facilities.

As well as providing energy-efficient lighting, including an upward element to aid LG7 compliance, the new modular system features built-in acoustic panels to replicate the sound-absorption properties of a conventional suspended ceiling, thereby achieving compliance with the acoustic performance requirements of Building Bulletin 93. In addition, the Acoustic System neatly accommodates the wiring and equipment for ancillary services such as audio-visual and fire-detection systems.

Each 1800mm lighting module can be specified with a comprehensive choice of T5 fluorescent lamps in single or twin configurations, providing outputs ranging from 21W to 54W. Standard infill sections come in four sizes from 300mm to 1200mm, and these are an ideal location for speakers, PIR detectors, fire-alarm beacons, sprinklers or compact LED emergency luminaires.

Featuring a robust steel construction with a white or silver-grey powder-coated finish, the Acoustic System is available with either an aluminium louvre or a UV-stable polycarbonate microprism diffuser for the downward optic, while the upward light element is provided via a clear reeded panel.

This versatile lighting system also offers a number of optional features, including DSI or DALI digital dimming, integrated lighting control, and integrated maintained emergency lighting with or without automatic testing facilities.
