LightArt has debuted two new sound-dampening fixtures, Acoustic Stratta and Acoustic Baffle. Imagined for high-traffic commercial spaces, the slim but mighty fixtures - whether specified as an individual piece or in a row - integrate seamlessly into everything from corporate gathering spaces to school auditoriums and healthcare hallways to hotel lobbies.
"LightArt is continually innovating and adapting to designers' evolving needs," said Edwin Vice, LightArt's Director of Research and Development. "Acoustic Stratta and Acoustic Baffle were designed to meet those changing needs with products that combine acoustic and lighting performance in a slim, minimalist form."
After launching their Static Links acoustic lighting collection in June 2022, LightArt was inspired to add to their acoustic linear fixture portfolio with updated construction and capabilities. After months of research and development, Acoustic Stratta now offers an aluminum structure and sound absorption of up to 11 sabins, making it up to two times more absorbent than previous iterations.
Acoustic Stratta's narrow aperture and slim profile are made possible by high-efficiency LED lights. The LED platform also includes warm dimming and tunable white and RGBW options. Plus, with uplight, downlight, and unlit capabilities, Acoustic Stratta can create different moods to subtly enhance a designer's vision.
Acoustic Stratta's optimized design has minimal, linkable components, making it flexible and connectable for continuous ceiling applications and configurable iterations in the future. Its adaptive lighting platform is also designed for technology upgrades as the collection continues to grow.
Acoustic Strata is available in 22 Sola Felt colors with optional Ash or Oak wood end caps. The fixture is offered in 250lm/ft up to 1050lm/ft in 80 and 90 CRI and in 2700K-4000K CCT with a UGR <19.
Engineered with the same acoustic features in Acoustic Stratta, Acoustic Baffle offers LightArt's latest technology in a budget-friendly sound-dampening baffle. For an acoustic product with such a slim, narrow profile, Acoustic Baffle has an astoundingly high reverberation impact, with a high number of sabins per fixture and a variable NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient) that depends on spacing. Every sabin is the same as one square foot of perfect acoustic absorption, and each baffle offers the same absorption as 16 square feet of typical Acoustical Ceiling Tile (ACT). Plus, its minimalist designs allow specifiers to create linear rows or diagonal shapes across any ceiling.
Acoustic Baffle is available in six sizes in one-foot increments between 3 feet and 8 feet. Acoustic Baffle is also available in 22 Sola Felt colors from soft neutrals to vibrant jewel tones.
