louvers, baffles are comprised of an array of cells, but unlike
louvers, the baffle provides a single row of rectangular cells rather
than a field of symmetrical cells. The lineal nature of baffles lends
itself to applications requiring controlled distribution in one
direction only. Typically, baffles are used along walls and corridors
where the wider distribution perpendicular to the length of the part
washes light down the walls while maintaining shielding parallel to the
length of the part.
Baffles are available with either parabolic blades or straight walled
blades. Typically these parts have half cells at each end of each part
so that they can be joined end-to-end for an unbroken appearance.
Baffles can be used either as companion parts to like style louvers or
as a stand alone element. A perimeter row of baffles around an area
that is lit by parabolic louvers will substantially increase that
area's feeling of lightness without increasing direct glare from the
luminaires. As a stand alone element, baffles are an ideal light
control media for lineal luminaires and site built lineal cove lighting
either around the perimeter of an area or along the length of a
