Our prismatic diffuser panels are polycarbonate (PC) or polyethene terephthalate (PET) resin. They are primarily used in indoor lighting applications to optimize light transmission and disperse the effects of glare. The panels are lightweight, simple to install, and can be custom-cut to meet your dimensional needs. Prismatic diffuser panels also aid in the concealment of unsightly cabling on suspended ceilings and reduce draughts in open interior environments.
provides two material options for fluorescent or LED lighting applications. Our standard material is polycarbonate, which transmits up to 89% of light, has a BS 476 part 7 class 1 flammability rating, and is used with fluorescent lighting. On one side, the panel has a K12 diagonal female prism matrix surface, and on the other, it has a smooth top surface suitable for vacuum forming, moulding, and fabrication.
PET diffuser panels, specifically designed for use with LED lighting, are also available. The panel meets BS EN 12464-1 standard and has a P52 crosswire prism surface with excellent anti-glare properties. The material is UV stabilized and can transmit up to 84% of light. PET prismatic diffuser panels also have a TP(a) fire rating, which means they will self-extinguish within five seconds of being exposed to flame.
Fluorescent lighting is primarily used in schools, restaurants, hospitals, sporting facilities, retail outlets, clean rooms, public buildings, offices, and public areas. Prismatic diffuser panels can also be used as an excellent fire retardant diffuser.
Polycarbonate (PC) diffuser panels have a Class 1 flammability rating in accordance with BS 476 Part 7.
P52 polyethylene terephthalate (PET) diffuser panels comply with BS EN 12464 and are suitable for use in LED lighting applications in indoor work places.
PET panels have a TP(a) fire rating, meaning the material self-extinguishes within 5 seconds once the source of flame is removed.
