Cutting-edge Innovation Through a Systems Approach
iGuzzini's Laser Blade range has been hailed as an icon of innovation since its launch several years ago. It offers a revolutionary way to generate high-quality illumination from an architecturally adaptive, small aperture downlighting system that permits unobtrusive ceiling integration. This high-forming family of architectural LED downlights are innovated from the ground up by leveraging iGuzzini's disciplines of thermal, electrical and mechanical engineering, as well as unparalleled expertise and insights in optical design. Laser Blade is created to facilitate the design excellence of creative, discerning lighting designers and architects who are constantly hunting for a more consistent, inconspicuous architectural aesthetic and more compelling lighting experience for end-users. To sum it up, the Laser Blade range provides phenomenal configurability with its modular design while upholding high standards across all dimensions of design and utility, including visual integration, light quality, energy efficiency, system reliability, ease of installation and maintenance.
Precision Optical Engineering
Core to Laser Blade is iGuzzini's patented Opti Beam technology which enables construction of optical assemblies with exceptional beam precision and uniformity even in miniaturized footprint. The meticulously crafted optic generates a circular emission with an extremely uniform and chromatic yield. Deep-set light emission combined with optical accessories such as louvre cells suppresses high-angle light to reduce visual glare and improve visual comfort with a unified glare rating (UGR) as low as less than 10. In Laser Blade's precision engineered optical systems, the path of every ray is controlled by optimizing the position of each LED and the reflection of each angle of the reflector. The Laser Blade reflectors take advantage of sophisticated geometry and high refection metallized coating surface to regulate luminous flux from the light source. These facet reflectors which are engineered on advanced ray interaction algorithm produce mixed reflection that enables homogeneous illumination without striations, hot spots or color break up.
Whatever applications the LED luminaires are used for, Laser Blade can satisfy any design requirement with precise beam control and highly uniform illuminance. From spot to medium, flood, wide flood, wall washer and oval lighting distributions, Laser Blade luminaires with Opti Beam optics produce a perfectly defined pool of light that delivers the ultimate experience in visual comfort and maximum expression of architecture. Spotlights with narrow beams deliver the highest punch possible for accent lighting. The well collimated beams create contrast precision and are completely free from fall-off halos. Downlights with medium beam distributions balance the delivery of high illuminance levels with industry leading CBCP. The recessed LED floodlights with wide beam casts a soft glow with minimal aperture brightness. Lensed optics soften the light source to create even more visually comfort ambience. Laser Blade also excels at wallwashing. Its asymmetrical beam-shaping optics create uniform vertical illuminance across the entire surface of the wall without light scallops and lateral light spill.
Superior Quality of Light
iGuzzini brings its renowned product benefits inside this highly engineered system that incorporates highest grade componentry. Upgrading to high quality, energy efficient LED lighting has never been easier with Laser Blade which uses high efficacy, high flux density and high color rendering LEDs. High performance LEDs deliver the industry’s highest quality of light creating an ambiance with color performance previously exclusive to incandescent lamps, all while maintaining high luminous efficacy - a true no compromise solution. The enriched CRI light source guarantees peerless color rendition with uniformly spectral distribution of all color components across the wavelength range of the visible radiation spectrum. The top-class selection of LEDs used in Laser Blade luminaires ensures exceptional color fidelity that helps bring out more vibrant colors and patterns critical to color sensitive or visually demanding applications such as museum, art gallery, retail and office lighting.
Laser Blade LED luminaires are offered in 2700K, 3000K and 4000K color temperature options with a chromaticity variation of less than 3-step MacAdam ellipses. Tight color control ensures imperceptible color deviation for module-to-module and luminaire-to-luminaire color consistency. The Laser Blade family includes a tunable white version which allows end-users to control the correlated color temperature and offers the freedom to create different ambiances in multidisciplinary spaces supporting personal preferences or specific activities. Laser Blade tunable white solutions can simulate natural daylight with infinitely adjustable color temperature between 2700K and 5700K. In addition to dynamically underlining the beauty and brilliance of different objects and surfaces museum and retail display lighting, tunable white technology can contribute to human centric lighting by providing interior rooms with biologically effective artificial daylight that synchronizes human the day/night rhythm. This feature is highly coveted in the hospitality industry.
Built to Deliver Consistent Value
Laser Blade is equipped with a highly efficient wavy aluminum heat sink that effectively increases surface area for heat dissipation while remaining confined to its small footprint. The heat sink construction and dimensioning are based on thermal simulations that are part of iGuzzini's stringent product development process. The recessed LED luminaire has a thermal conduction pathway with extremely low thermal resistance from the LED junction, through the die cast aluminum housing and heat sink to the ambient environment thereby guaranteeing no excess heat buildup. Advanced passive thermal management ensures that at least 90% of all LEDs still achieve more than 80% of the initial luminous flux for up to 50,000 hours. It also prevents the LEDs from thermal degradation in phosphor and silicone encapsulation, making it possible for Laser Blade luminaires to maintain excellent chromaticity stability over the life of the products.
