Linear

Horizontally Oriented. A Luminaire whose dimension along one side is significantly greater than its other dimensions.

Luminaire optimized for cove lighting applications (uplighting a ceiling, coffer, or other surface from an architectural cove), where small size and specific light distribution characteristics are desired. Sometimes adjustable.

A variety of options to integrate lighting directly into handrails for improved illumination on staircases. LED technology makes handrail lighting simple and versatile. Led pods integrate within cylindrical rails; peel-and-stick strip lights adhere directly underneath handrails for an informal solution or may be mounted within a grooved surface on wooden handrails. Custom installations may be specified for curved applications.

Lighting along the perimeter of a room at the ceiling. Perimeter Wall Slot lighting is an efficient way to provide ambient light and define the wall and ceiling planes, making the contours of a space more visible while also increasing the perceived size of the room. May be installed in a continuous slot that’s flush with the ceiling or in a recessed configuration that keeps the actual fixture out of view.

Lighting that’s integrated into the ceiling (either flush-mounted or fully recessed) for a clean, streamlined look. LEDs have expanded the possibilities for recessed linear lighting. Options include straight runs, patterned geometric configurations, or lighting that travels across the wall/ceiling junction for an intriguing strip of light recessed within the wall.

Luminaire consisting of bare lamps and a housing channel or flexible strip. Also called “shop light” (fluorescent), "tivoli lights" (incandescent), "xenon strip" (halogen/xenon).

Interior downlight generally designed to integrate with suspended ceiling grids. Also called “parabolic”, “2x4”, “2x2”, etc.

Fluorescent luminaire consisting of a lens that wraps around the entire fixture body, designed to distribute light from floor to ceiling.
