Hardwire Dimming Requirements: Technology is rapidly changing in lamping, creating some uncertainty when specifying dimming requirements. Consult with your electrical engineer on the lighting control (dimming system) that will be used before specifying dimming requirements.
Diffusers: To conceal lamping, diffuse hot spots or minimize bugs or debris, a diffuser may be added to most portable or hardwire fixtures, depending upon lamping specified.
An acrylic diffuser at the top or bottom of your fixture in gloss or frosted opal/white with a coordinating lock-up knob is available.
Perforated metal can be supplied in metallic, white, or painted to desired finish.
