What Are Parabolic Louvers?
Parabolic Louvers are light diffusers designed to reduce the brightness or glare of fluorescent and other kinds of lighting. A parabolic louver evenly distributes lighting for a more comfortable environment in commercial or office settings. The reduction of glare can lower eye strain in situations where many people use computers and can help merchandise look brighter with clearer colors in a store. Parabolic louvers can be made from any material, but are generally either high quality plastic or metal, such as aluminum.
All parabolic louvers have a grid design that creates light distribution, reduces glare, and allows airflow to the lights for cooler operating temperature and longer lasting operation. They are used in recessed lighting and can be implemented with any kind of bulbs, from fluorescent to led. You’ll see parabolic louvers just about anywhere you go that has a high amount of foot traffic such as doctor’s offices, business offices, shopping malls, and even some outdoor areas that require lighting. At Diffuser Specialist we have many options when it comes to parabolic louvers that we know you’ll love.
