Lutron has been the world’s leading manufacturer of lighting systems for more than 50 years. Lutron has opened up a new world of possibilities by seamlessly and easily integrating electric and daylight control systems with a focus on innovation, world-class engineering and customer service. Lutron blends technology with design and environmental sensitivity to provide the ideal solution for any specification.
Daylight has a quality that we respond to emotionally. Colors read true, finishes reveal their texture, and an uplifting quality pervades any room bathed in daylight. As we become more conscious of our footprint on this planet, we realise that making the most of daylight in our homes simply makes sense. Utilising daylight reduces our need for electric light, and saves energy. Lutron shading systems provide precision control of daylight – all at the touch of a button.
Utilise your shading system to save additional energy beyond routine use of shades. “Winter warm” opens the shades, taking advantage of sunlight warming a southern façade. “Summer cool” does the opposite by lowering shades and blocking solar heat gain, thereby reducing your cooling costs. In addition, Lutron shading fabrics are made from sustainable materials for complete environmental and energy savings.
Elegance & Ambiance
Lutron controls are designed to look and work beautifully. Stylish control and fabric options coupled with innovative technology elegantly transition a space to create the right amount of light for any activity. Shades align precisely within 1/16 in of each other for a balanced, beautiful look to a row of windows.
Managing daylight is not restricted to a single wall station in your home. Shading systems can be controlled using a myriad of keypads, IR remote controls, wireless tabletop controls, or set to an astronomic time clock for automatic adjustment of shades.
Safety & Security
Utilise a whole-home shading system for simultaneous control of all shades. By setting a pre-determined scene for “Away”, simply select this button when leaving to close all shades and restrict the view inside your home.
Reduce Glare & Protect Furnishings
Lutron shading systems diffuse light and prevent glare from washing out a computer or television screen. Shading systems also protect furniture, fine art, rugs, and even wood surfaces, from the sun’s damaging UV rays. Stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter by using shading systems to deflect or harness solar heat.
Sunlight invigorates the workplace, but can also decrease productivity with glare and over-heating spaces. Regulate daylight in commercial spaces with a shading solution designed to optimise comfort and lower energy costs. Systems can also be automated and integrated with other controls for additional savings and comfort.
Optimise Daylight & Save Energy
Most buildings today are over-lit because lights are on at full intensity while there is already ample daylight in the space. This wastes energy, creates discomfort, and reduces productivity. Couple a Lutron shading system with a sustainable fabric for a complete energy-saving story, and help earn points toward LEED®.
Increase Productivity & Comfort
Preferred light levels and automated shade control are conducive to a productive work environment. Automatically set lights and shades to adjust throughout the day based on daylight available or provide employees with individual control so their needs can be met.
Create a More Flexible Space
Shading zones easily re-configure to allow for flexible use of a room without rewiring. Each zone can be altered to meet specific daylight needs.
Shades block and reflect direct sunlight during the day to reduce the demand on air conditioning systems during the summer. Certain fabrics are dual-sided with a white or silver backing to deflect more sunlight. In colder months, lowered shades can provide an insulating barrier to keep the building warmer. By automatically adjusting electric light levels in response to daylight, electric lighting needs can also be reduced.
Versatile Design Options
When selecting a Lutron shading system, you have the choice of technology, control, and fabric. With hundreds of fabrics to choose from in different opacity and color, a conference room can have sheer fabrics for a meeting but blackout shades for an A/V presentation. Bottom-up shades can offer privacy on the first floor with a dim-out fabric while higher levels use a dual-sided fabric to create a uniform appearance from the outside while deflecting more daylight for increased energy savings.
Mix & Match
Small offices, conference rooms, and whole buildings have different needs and aren’t confined to sharing the same systems if working together. Having all shades work together on one system doesn’t eliminate personalised control if the needs of a space change throughout the day.
