Avante® Recessed Direct-Indirect

The Avante provides the optimum mix of directional and diffuse reflected light combined for balanced illumination between task and proximate walls, enhanced visual comfort and minimized shadows.

Available in 2'x2' and 2'x4' sizes with side- or center-mounted diffusers and symmetric distributions for general area lighting applications. End-to-end row mounting capability. Available with a variety of shielding options.

The Avante is an indoor lighting luminaire suitable for general commerical lighting applications. The 2'x4' provides lighting for large spaces including open offices, circulation areas, classrooms, libraries, cafeterias, airport ticketing and wait areas, and numerous other applications.

The Avante 2'x2' works well in private and open offices, circulation areas, classrooms, libraries, cafeterias, airport ticketing and waiting areas, and other commercial spaces.

The side-mounted diffuser is for use as general area lighting and for private offices. It is especially suited for conference rooms, corridors and reception areas where soft distinctive lighting is required. Static or air functions available.
