A TRUE ASYMMETRIC
Expertly designed with advanced optics, Echo Blade effectively gets light where it's needed most—the middle of the room. An optional backlight shield can also be specified to minimize the visual signature of the luminaire even further.
ENJOY ALL THE BENEFITS OF INDIRECT LIGHTING
In large spaces, too often light quality is sacrificed for light quantity. Indirect lighting improves visual comfort by hiding the light source from view and eliminating direct glare. All light is reflected off the ceiling, creating a smooth comfortable source of brightness and well-diffused illumination. This avoids high-luminance contrast and reduces shadows, balancing light.
Beyond improving light quality, Echo Blade enables beautiful design. By lighting from the perimeter, the ceiling plane remains unobstructed, creating a clean canvas for architecture.
THE BEST WAY TO LIGHT NATATORIUMS
This natatorium-rated fixture is specially constructed to protect it from the humidity and corrosive chemical vapors found in pools. Echo Blade features:
- Durable aluminum construction
- Minimum 2 mils powder coat paint to prevent corrosion
- Stainless steel fasteners
- Silicone potted connections
- Fully potted power supply(s) that are sealed with epoxy to protect internal components
SPI Lighting is an expert in natatorium lighting. We have designed fixtures to safely illuminate Olympic, competition, school, and community pools for more than 30 years.
CORRECTS FOR COLOR-OVER-ANGLE
Inherent within LEDs is a color-over-angle (COA) variation caused by phosphor path length differences. Along the edge, the angle light that exits the LED is larger, causing more absorption of blue light. What remains is a more yellow, phosphor-converted light.
This non-uniformity in color can be a significant concern, particularly in spaces with light colored walls or ceilings. Echo Blade always includes a standard top lens that corrects for this. The diffuser film color mixes the output, delivering a clean white beam suitable for highly-finished ceilings and walls.
