Staple luminaires deliver all the fundamentals of great lighting—modern design, comfortable illumination, efficient performance and energy-saving controls options—at a value that makes it a practical choice for a wide range of indoor applications including schools, offices, retail stores and health facilities.
Subtle contours around the perimeter of the Staple luminaires’ rectangular bodies provide a contemporary aesthetic. A soft-glowing acrylic baffle or diffused lens extends edge to edge and end to end creating seamless continuity. Gloss white paint finishes the understated, yet thoroughly modern, luminaire.
Available for T8 or T5/T5HO lamps, Staple luminaires emit comfortable, glare-free illumination. Optically engineered shielding and reflectors produce a quality of light that minimizes eyestrain and fatigue. And, with most lamping options meeting Illuminating Engineering Society recommended practices for education facilities and offices as well as Collaborative for High Performance Schools best practices, Staple luminaires produce illumination that promotes workplace productivity and contributes to improved classroom learning.
To reduce energy use and meet building power density requirements, Staple luminaires are more than 90 percent efficient. When specified for single T8 lamps and spaced 10 feet apart on-center in a typical 60- by 40-foot open office, Staple luminaires use as low as 0.60 watts per square foot while delivering 31 foot candles on a 2.5-foot-high work surface.
Further energy savings is possible when Staple luminaires are specified with one or more of the following options embedded into the luminaire:
- An integrated nLight Micro Sensor that provides daylight dimming and/or dual, passive infrared and Microphonics technologies for occupancy on/off control
- An nLight module that provides row, room, building or campus-wide network connectivity and control
Staple luminaires also direct lumens exactly where they are needed. With a standard 65 percent indirect, 35 percent direct distribution, Staple luminaires deliver the necessary lumens on work surfaces while effectively illuminating entire rooms with broadly distributed, uniform light. For applications where ceiling reflectivity is less-than-optimal, Staple luminaires may be specified with optional variable distribution reflectors to redirect more light downward.
Offered in 4-, 8- and 12-foot lengths, Staple luminaires can be installed as individual units or joined together to form continuous runs.
