Workspace office design has gone through a revolution from high wall cubicles to flexible-modular open office plans that promote collaboration and communication. A byproduct of this design has resulted in disruption and distractions that can lead to lower productivity and dissatisfaction of the workspace environment. To address this, Eaton introduces Shaper Sense Acoustic LED Luminaires.
The decorative collection of Shaper Sense lighting fixtures is designed to invoke the human senses of sight, hearing, and touch. In partnership with industry-leading acoustic and natural materials company, FilzFelt™, the edge-lit luminaires are an ensemble of integrated LED lighting and acoustic products with 100% Wool Design Felt. This combination provides a collection of products of high aesthetic appeal, visual performance and quality acoustic surrounds.
The products, which help mitigate sound waves and lower reverberation in a space, have the highest Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) values today. The Box pendant has apparent NRC of 1.2 and SAA of 1.19 and the apparent NRC of Trapezoid is NRC of 1.4 and SAA of 1.38. Drum products are in process of being tested.
The simple shapes (Box, Trapezoid, and Drum) combined with 60+ dynamic felt color selections, allow designers to choose and form countless looks, creating their own solutions for a space. The Shaper Sense lighting fixtures offer a choice of one or two options of layers of 3mm felt color and is applied to 38mm of acoustic substrate that is 60% recycled content and 100% recyclable.
The luminaires have 85 percent transmissivity, allowing natural daylight to pass through when turned off. As electric light is needed, the fixtures become an illuminated and efficacious source for ambient and task applications.
Effective in size, the Box pendant is 28"W x 28"L x 14"H, the Trapezoid is 38"W x 38"L x 21"H, and the Drum is 28"D x 14"H. The products can be wirelessly controlled and are available in 3000K, 3500K and 4000K color temperatures with 80 and 90 CRI options. Efficacies in some instances are over 100+ lumens per watt with lumen outputs over 3800+.
Adding value beyond lighting, the luminaires are available with integrated wireless sensors with IoT connectivity to simplify the controls installation, enable automatic code compliance and transmit key building data.
