Entry DescriptionHigh performance lighting meets sound reducing technology. Absorb H is a patent pending sound absorbing linear luminaire with unique folded acoustic panels designed to capture sound waves and enhance acoustic absorption. The panels have an inherent sound absorption rate of 0.75 NRC. With its large surface area, Absorb H helps decrease reverberation time in a set environment without compromise to the light output. Delivering up to 912 lm/ft with an efficacy of 95 lm/W, Absorb H’s powerful output enables functional illumination for open and noisy environments. Absorb H is available in 3000K, 3500K or 4000K and 80+ or 90+ CRI. The environmentally friendly felt-like polyester panels are made from at least 40% post-consumer recycled PET bottles and are fully recyclable. They contain no VOCs, are formaldehyde free and are fire tested according to ASTM E-84 Class A. HE Tech™ lens technology cleanly combines optical diffusion and high-performance reflector design to deliver beautifully refined light with uncompromised performance. With a human centric design, Absorb H combines high performance optics and the most advanced acoustic materials to create a solution for two different problems.
