So we had some decisions to make. Do we do it the same way everyone else does it, or do we find a better way? Using ray tracing software we experimented with the required “flat spots” and eliminated the “bump” above the lamp center. We were not satisfied with the results as we determined that “flat spots” meant “Hot-Spots” (spikes of light instead of uniform distribution) and approximately 10% drop in efficiency from what we had originally designed.
So we did what we do best and found a better way. By extruding our “complex” reflectors out of 6463 polished aluminum we were able to get the shape and the distribution we desired, maintaining our fluid design (minus flat spots) and including our“bump” above the center lamp. It cost us a bit more and required using more aluminum, but in the end we had developed the highest efficiency luminaires in the market place with superior light output . The blessing in disguise was that our fixtures, by the very nature of their construction, were more robust and could handle almost any abuse you could throw at them. (see video link)
