|Up to 40% more light with NLITe|
Nanofibre nonwovens form the basis of a new technology platform for the lighting industry which has been shown to provide substantial energy savings while producing aesthetically pleasing light.
Developed at RTI International in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, NLITe can be applied to any lighting fixture – from traditional fluorescents to energy-saving LEDs.
Funded in part by the US Department of Energy, NLITe was recognised with an R&D100 Award in 2011, identifying it as one of the most technologically significant products of the year.
“NLITe reflective technology dramatically improves light output and energy efficiency to allow builders, architects, lighting engineers, and designers to change their lighting designs, in order to reduce installation costs while lowering operating and maintenance costs,” said Galen Hatfield, vice president of the Commercial Programnes Division, Engineering and Technology at RTI. “NLITe also provides efficient light diffusion and improved glare resistance for overall better light quality.”
