Birchwood Lighting Releases New Acoustic Luminaries, Panels

Birchwood Lighting recently announced the launch of a new set of acoustic luminaries and panels designed for large, open spaces. The BWA250 luminaries and panels are intended to provide both seamless illumination and sound dampening capabilities in large open environments like open office spaces, common areas and educational environments, according to a press release.

BWA250 comes with an NRC rating of 0.95 and uses BW Acoustic material to absorb internal and external sound influences, lowering the room’s noise level. It’s available in non-lit or lit configurations ranging from 200–900 lm/W. Its sustainable housing is made of 60 percent post-consumer recycled materials, the news release states.

“The introduction of BWA250 represents a move toward a minimalistic yet functional design philosophy for Birchwood,” said Adam Zepeda, senior director of brand management for Birchwood Lighting. “Its minimal yet flexible internal structure means the acoustic shroud can be customized to various heights, allowing users to customize the luminaries and panels to fit the size and needs of their spaces.”

Birchwood Lighting, a Leviton Company, is headquartered in Anaheim, Calif.
