New Product for Educational Buildings

 ACOUSTIC RAFT LIGHTING

The advent of school premises built using high thermal mass exposed materials lead to the removal of false ceilings and the subsequent need to find a different method of acoustic treatment and lighting for classrooms. Acoustic lighting rafts have been in existence for this very purpose for quite some time now, however, the cost implication and amount of equipment required to meet regulations has been far from ideal.

After supplying acoustic rafts on many school projects, we re-evaluated lighting, acoustic and other service requirements to see if there was an optimal solution. The Luxonic design team challenged themselves to create the ultimate acoustic suspended lighting system. The result is our new product, BROADLIGHTER® ACOUSTIC, a multi-service acoustic raft with several unique selling points and a multitude of key benefits.
