Light connects architecture + humanity

Breakthrough Illumination. Unlimited Potential.

We believe in the balance of design and performance without compromise.

Careful selection of luminaires and thoughtful application of lighting design in educational spaces has a direct connection to increasing productivity and well-being of students and teaching staff, plus offers energy saving benefits for the education facilities.

Simple is complicated. Invisible is Innovation.

Fluxwerx optics are engineered specifically for LED sources. Integrated with minimalist design and architectural materials, our luminaires deliver a broad range of options with superior optical and energy performance. Precise distributions provide greater-on-center spacing, exceptional work plane uniformity with lower energy density and maximum visual comfort.

Classrooms

Today’s classrooms are multifunctional learning spaces designed to inspire. Flexible, comfortable, high performance lighting is critical to complement and support the variety of collaborative and individual-led teaching and learning activities and functions these environments demand.

Optimize academic potential

Luminaires that deliver wide on-center spacing and exceptional uniformity save energy, costs and materials as fewer fixtures are needed in classrooms. As classrooms evolve into
collaborative workspaces and deviate from traditional eyes-front configurations, the use of lighting that addresses multiple conditions becomes critical.

Entries / Atriums / Halls

Large, open and central spaces form the physical and virtual heart of any educational facility. Form first impressions where people, place and culture connect.

No longer just a throughway

Large, socially vibrant spaces encourage multiple uses and demand lighting designed for ultimate flexibility, control and comfort. Trimless finish of recessed fixtures in this atrium offers a subtle punctuation of the ceiling plane, ensuring complete integration with the architecture and a cohesive lighting experience.

Lecture spaces

Controlled lighting is critical for purpose-specific instructional spaces with clearly defined ‘educator zones’ and audio/visual requirements.

Lighting in lecture halls often differs from classroom lighting as the distance between the lecturer and the audience is typically greater. Independently controllable direct and indirect lighting optimizes illumination of the presenter and presentation for ideal communications and learning.

Lighting for epiphanies

Presentation-ready lighting takes into consideration vertically mounted writing boards and monitors positioned on vertical surfaces. Suspended luminaires enable independent hemispherical control and provide fully dimmable or switchable control of the indirect (up) and direct (down) distributions to suit the lighting and energy needs of the space and people in the environment. Ideal for multipurpose rooms and spaces with presentation, projection or video conferencing requirements.

Libraries

Research, group learning, storytelling, and individual study are just some of the many uses for libraries today. This kind of versatility challenges convention and demands lighting for the future that is engineered from the start.

No longer just books

Particularly well-suited to reading environments and reconfigurable spaces, discrete general area lighting provides all the benefits of linear suspended luminaires with maximum design flexibility.

Labs + Training

Spaces for science-based study and lab work often have variable general and task lighting requirements. Occupants increasingly expect adjustable, glare-free, dimmer-controlled and color-accurate spaces.

Light at the speed of learning

Balanced energy consumption is an important consideration as laboratories have traditionally been high energy users due to electrical and cooling requirements. Selecting energy efficient luminaires helps to lower overall electricity consumption costs, balancing occupant comfort with high performance and value.

Transitional Spaces

Corridors are more than mere passageways.

Similar to break-out collaboration areas, these transitional spaces offer an opportunity for one-on-one and small-group learning sessions, providing social fabric for people to converge and interact.

From conduit to conference

Automated controls such as occupancy sensors can increase energy savings. Occupancy sensors can be programmed to dim the lights where and when daylight is available, and maintain required minimum foot candle levels for safety purposes.

Design + Build to Last

To streamline installation, invisible design details require no electrical connections at fixture joints, creating virtually seamless continuous runs. Our fixtures also arrive on site with endcaps and power drop cords factory installed and drivers prewired and tested for every circuit.

Ceiling Integration

Complementing our luminaires, drivers are designed for multiple orientations and to accommodate a variety of ceiling conditions with simple installation methods and easy access for maintenance.

Lumen Maintenance

Our products are designed and built to last, typically maintaining more than 90 percent of their initial light output for more than 60,000 hours of operation, well above the industry standard. This means better quality, longer lasting lighting solutions for education spaces, resulting in exceptionally low or no routine lighting maintenance.

Color Rendering Index: 80 vs 90 CRI

Color Rendering Index (CRI) represents the ability of a light source to faithfully reproduce object colors, mimicking daylight. All Fluxwerx luminaires–suspended, recessed and discrete–are available with CRI > 80 or CRI > 90 LEDs in all versions, and comply with WELL Building Standard “Electric Light Quality” requirements.
