Acuity Brands leads with unmatched innovation in architectural downlighting. With the invention of the patented hyperbolic reflector Acuity changed the look of downlighting from bright dots in the ceiling to Silent Ceilings™ that yield prominence to the architecture and space design. This follows the very basic purpose of downlighting: hiding the luminaire while enhancing the effects of the light.
A hyperbolic luminaire has the bottom of the reflector out of the reach of the light, virtually eliminating aperture brightness and glare
A traditional luminaire has the full face of the reflector illuminated, making the aperture look bright
With 45º visual cutoff, the Hyperbolic reflector blends seamlessly with the ceiling and architecture, drawing attention to important focal points but not the ceiling.
Flanged Hyperbolic Reflector
Flangeless Hyperbolic Reflector
Hyperbolic reflectors feature a Flanged or Flangeless installation, not to mention a wide variety of finishes and multiple optical distributions enabling you to achieve the desired architectural look you strive for.
