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.

blades. Typically these parts have half cells at each end of
each part so that they can be joined end to end for an
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 luminaries. As a stand alone element
baffles, are an ideal light control media for lineal
luminaries and site built lineal cove lighting either around
the perimeter of an area or along the length of a
