Light Fittings for Suspended Ceilings
At Granmore, we offer a massive selection of lighting systems from recessed modular light fittings and led lighting to emergency modular. It can be difficult to choose which type of lighting you need so we’ve decided to provide you with a basic guide on lightings.
Recessed modular light
This type of light is commonly used in office lighting. If you are looking to fit some light in a big building, then this is the best choice as this will save you money in the long run. It is available in 600x600mm and 1200x600mm. It can either carry two to four fluorescent of T5 or T8 or even an LED type. However if you do try to fit an LED light, it will be more expensive but more energy-efficient.
LED recessed lights will have a built in diffuser or louvre unit but with a fluorescent luminaire. You can replace and select your diffuser. It is available in a daylight colour or a cool white. We offer a 40W 600mm x 600mm Recessed module or a lower 30W with an adjustable rectangular led light.
Types of Diffuser:
Prismatic Diffuser –
Available in two sizes from 1200mm and 600mm. This diffuser is the cheapest of them all. It is made out of 2.5mm thick polystyrene. Due to being inexpensive, they tend to degrade visually and physically in the long term.
Eggcrate Louvre –
They are crafted with mixed polystyrene and acrylic louvre to enhance lighting output. This kind of diffuser is useful for aiding airflow throughout the ceiling as a replacement of under light fittings.
Anti-glare chrome Louvre –
They are the most expensive out of all the diffusers are they are well designed therefore making it visually attractive, plus it is the best at diffusing the light. However, the only problem is that it lets the heat from the room to get trap into the ceiling void. The problem can be solved just by adding a attaching a fire hood canopy.
Fire Hood Canopy –
Most suspended ceilings will be required a fire hoods or canopies to prevent the heat from escaping. It also helps with maintaining the overall integrity.
