These injection molded lenses are manufactured using clear and frost acrylic or clear polycarbonate. The polycarbonate version provides protection of the light source against abuse, such as severe impact and vandalism. This new shallow 12×12 version is intended for use with existing die cast housings, such as the QSSI VN41. The prism structure provides excellent lamp hiding power and improves the distribution for better uniformity. With an appropriate LED light the I43 shallow can meet DLC parking garage distribution requirements. With internal reflectors, it can also meet DLC Canopy requirements.
The I43 is intended to be used with LED luminaires. In most cases its shallow depth will preclude the use of HID, fluorescent or other traditional sources. These molded lenses are suitable for interior and exterior applications.
Before final installation, dissipate static on parts by spraying with de-staticized air or by wiping with a clean, damp rag. This will help minimize dust build up.
