WAC Lighting unveils Aether 2" Extreme Shallow LED Recessed DownLight

WAC Lighting unveils the Aether 2" Extreme Shallow Recessed Down Light, a "Next-Level down light" which features a low profile LED housing that is designed to fit in very tight plenum spaces without compromising lumen output or glare control. Aether provides general, accent and wall wash illumination in a wide range of indoor and covered outdoor space applications in residential, commercial, hospitality and architectural environments.

Delivering versatile and contemporary lighting for virtually any space, the compact 2" luminaire accommodates ceilings with just one-half  to one inch thickness. This recessed down light is ideal for the clean minimalist expression that is preferred in newly constructed modern buildings today. With features such as vertical and horizontal adjustment, choose from round or square, trim or trimless, and an array of finishes.

The IC rated, airtight universal housing accepts three types of trim: a down light for general illumination with superior glare control; an adjustable accent light with 0-25° index-based precision aiming; and a wall washer that illuminates with an innovative patterned lens.

The luminaire uses just 15 watts while delivering up to 1405 lumens. It offers a CCT (correlated color temperature) ranging from 2700 K to 4000 K with 17° spot to 50° wide optics.

The extreme shallow recessed down light minimizes a loss of ceiling height when using furring strips. Its gated access door is designed for installation below the ceiling line. Trim or Trimless styles are available.
The 120-277 V Universal Voltage driver dims down beautifully to just five percent, with ELV, TRIAC or 0-10 V dimming capabilities. The LEDs have a 50,000-hour rated life.
