Current’s Lifeshield® Architectural Downlighting Suits Complex Spaces

Lifeshield® LED lighting from Current – which ensures safety, reliability and compliance in complex environments – now includes Lifeshield Architectural Downlighting to bring consistent visual quality and comfort to healthcare, behavioral, correctional, and cleanroom settings.

Challenging complex environments require proper light levels with good uniformity. Fixtures must also work around the mechanical obstructions of medical or industrial equipment to create a comfortable and task-safe environment. New Lifeshield Architectural Downlights feature a low-glare, quiet-ceiling design that avoids distraction and aids visual acuity.

Through common optical construction and consistent materials, Lifeshield downlights deliver a 50-degree visual cut-off to source for excellent glare control, helping medical professionals, laboratory specialists, cleanroom technicians and other skilled workers focus on their tasks and not the ceiling.

“Alternative shallow aperture fixtures tend to create greater ceiling glare,” says Deb Zawodny, Business Development Manager for Current. “Our new downlights are designed for optimal visual comfort and true color rendition that are essential to many surgical, pharmaceutical, and food-processing activities. As one of the most complete and flexible suites of products available, Lifeshield Architectural Downlights offer the best combination of apertures, distribution, and certifications to fit complex environments.”

The Lifeshield Architectural Downlighting family includes 4-inch and 6-inch round and square aperture fixtures with beam distributions ranging from very narrow to extra wide. Also available for round aperture fixtures are Lifeshield Wall Wash luminaires that contribute to the ambient illumination in a space. Additionally, a variety of reflector finishes and colors makes it easy to enhance any design.

Lifeshield downlights are IS03 cleanroom rated for sterile environments, having smooth surfaces with antimicrobial finishes to help inhibit contamination. Their sealed design ensures durability in NSF2 washdown environments while nonferromagnetic construction prevents electromagnetic interference with the most sensitive medical equipment. Many Lifeshield downlights also meet other complex environment certification/listing standards including CSA, Wet Environment, IC, CCEA, UL924, IP66, IP69K, IK10, MIL461G, and IEC.

Additionally, installers and specifiers will appreciate how the new downlights are easily integrated with Current’s NX Lighting Controls platform for seamless interior lighting control with simple, intuitive operation.
