FloatPlane - Suspended

With FloatPlane LED, it’s easier than ever to integrate sleek and sporty style into your layout and within budget. Fresh and playful, with Curve and Edge profile options, FloatPlane’s performance rivals that of high-end LED luminaires with the affordability of fluorescent. Available tunable white technology gives you the ability to vary color temperature and intensity, harmonizing lighting with your daily life.

Driving performance beyond the edge.

With performance up to 129 LPW, FloatPlane brings the distinct energy savings of LED, and allows the use of fewer luminaires in the space compared to fluorescent sources.

Elite style to make a statement.

FloatPlane's sleek, low-profile design of only 1.2"h x 8"w, and a choice of Curve or Edge profiles, blends seamlessly into your unique design. Distribution options of 70% up, 75% down and 100% down put light where its needed or heighten the mood without creating a distraction.

New heights in design are within your reach.

As affordable as fluorescent luminaires but without the bulk, FloatPlane frees you to achieve exciting new heights in design.



Balanced illumination, astonishing performance

FloatPlane uses a combination of high reflectivity materials and specialised diffusers to shape and soften the light output in both upper and lower hemispheres. This delivers a powerful combination of efficacies up to 129LPW, smooth light gradations both on the ceiling and the workplane, and a silky smooth appearance to the lower lens. The wide-throw upper batwing distribution allows luminaires to be spaced wider apart without sacrificing visual comfort or light levels, resulting in fewer luminaires, lower project costs and lower long term energy bills.

Response Daylight Sensor, Actilume Occupancy with Field-enabled Daylight, and SpaceWise DT Occupancy & Daylight Sensor are available in the suspended version.



Philips Ledalite Response Daylight sensors and Philips Actilume Occupancy sensors are fully integrated sensors that automatically adjust light levels when daylight enters the room, or dim to low levels when people leave the area, thus helping to reduce operating expenses and comply with new energy codes. Sensors are factory pre-calibrated and ready to use right out of the box. Just plug in the fixture - no power packs, standalone sensors or low-voltage wiring schemes required. The sensors adjust light output gradually with minimal distraction for occupants.





Modules + Runs

Available in 4, 6 and 8ft modules. Edge version modules shown in the image below. Curve version dimensions identical except for rounded windows.

Different modules can be joined together to create continuous runs of various lengths. The following table shows how to configure typical runs using different modules.
