Para-Lite™ 1 (Style 2)

The shallow, efficient optical design of the Para-Lite 1™ louver provides for maximum light output and excellent shielding. Designed with space saving in mind, it is both durable and cost effective. Manufactured using the latest molding and metalizing techniques, the Para-Lite 1 has been shown to be at least 20% more efficient than traditional 1/2” x 1/2” parabolic louvers.


Office environments, task areas, elevators, conference rooms, corridors, medical facilities, auditoriums, perimeter lighting, retail stores and banks.


Optically perfect, mirrored parabolic shapes provide maximum light output with excellent shielding.

Parabolic louvers are the most sophisticated and optically precise lighting control panels available in the industry.

The proper installation, care and handling of these louvers will ensure excellent light control and product serviceability for many years.

Panels will sometimes require additional cutting for proper installation.

Parabolic Louvers are one piece injection molded of polystyrene with all parabolic surfaces prepared with a primary undercoat and a highly specular vacuum metalized finish.

Cell dimensions shall be 5/8” x 5/8” x 7/16” and provide 35º shielding with a louver efficiency of not less than 51%.

This louver has a VCP index rating of .99 (specular silver finish).

Available in nominal panel sizes of 1’ x 4’, 2’ x 2’ and 2’ x 4’.

Care and Handling
Great care should be exercised when handling parabolic louvers, avoiding contact with oily and/or foreign substances. Always handle louver panels with clean white gloves – never use bare hands. Always install these louvers after the space has been completed and is ready for occupancy – never during construction.
