High Light-Reflectant products reflect more light to create brighter spaces.
More light returned means a brighter space with less indirect lighting, reduced energy consumption and happier, more effective employees.
Indirect lighting is used in areas without natural light. High light-reflectant ceiling tiles enhance the benefits of indirect lighting by improving overall lighting uniformity, returning up to 90% of light back into the space compared to 75% with standard ceilings.
Growing awareness of new, energy-saving lighting often overlooks the integral role of the ceiling. A high light reflectance ceiling - LR 0.83 or greater per ASTM E1477-98 as referred to in ASTM E1264-98 - makes these lighting systems, especially indirect lighting, more effective while further reducing energy costs and consumption.

Benefits of High-LR Ceilings:
- Substantially brighter spaces - up to 25% more usable light
- Reduced energy costs and consumption - as much as 18%
- Exceptionally balanced light diffusion - due to the consistent surface finish
- Reduced Light Loss Factor (LLF) - because their soil-resistant surfaces remain highly reflectant
