Architects, designers, and brand managers go to great lengths to style attractive and memorable elements that reflect the spirit of the brand, and thereby the purpose of the space occupied by it.
Because such elements are what catches the general public’s eye first, and when those eyes look, they HAVE to find something worthy, because love, at first sight, is often a real thing.
Therefore, connoisseurs of lighting have been experimenting with new materials, vibrant colors, shades, shadows, solids, and void – all to make the place sing.
Now more than ever, the introduction of lighting elements into the design – specifically, LED lighting – is something that takes on point-in-time relevance.
Whether for exterior facades or interior enhancements, LED light panels have become the go-to option when it comes to lighting due to their form factor-specifically, the ability to backlight surfaces with little diffusion space required, better light quality, cost efficiencies, longer life span, and lesser energy consumption, among other reasons.
When it comes to light panels, despite the presence of various options in the market, proficient lighting consultants often strongly recommend using OmniSheet – the flagship product within the panels range of the Omnify Lighting family, which pioneered the LED light panel revolution with Lumisheet™.
And while this is predominantly because the award-winning OmniSheet holds multiple patents for light panels, there are several other notable reasons why OmniSheet, as it stands, is considered the best light panel on the market.
Customization is the key to a project that stands out from the milieu.
OmniSheet light panels are constructed in a way where the LED strips are layered across the edges of the acrylic with the embedded LEDs bearing a consistent pitch, reducing hot spots or maximizing already substantial uniformity.
Further, OmniSheet LED light panels allow for dimmable output levels, which provide an opportunity for light “layering.” These are frequently coupled with wattage options to match power requirements.
It also provides multiple color temperature options to match or properly contrast other lighting fixtures within the environment. Lastly, OmniSheet also allows for variable grid patterns providing maximum lux, thus helping you configure specific lighting solutions that work for your projects at an affordable cost.
High 95+ CRI
OmniSheet, with application across retail, architecture, and signage, is powered by the revolutionary OmniChip, delivering the best light distribution on the market and is tested at a CRI of 95+.
The type of LED light panel you use could have a profound effect on the way your environment looks. A great light panel brings out the true colors of the space and the elements within the space. The impact of the light source on the visual appearance of the items under its subjection is often associated with the color rendering index (CRI).
Now, the light output from all types of light sources has its position in the CRI chart. This chart – that has a scale from 0 to 100 – determines how accurately a light source can produce a light that matches a naturally referenced light source, such as the sun.
With LED light panels too, the quality of light is determined by its position on the CRI chart – typically, the higher its position on the CRI chart, the better the visual experience.
CRI plays a vital role in retail lighting. For instance, if a retail store for premium handbags deployed an LED light panel with an output that falls in the lower range of the CRI chart, the products in the display will have a drab and dull look – which completely defeats the purpose of using LED light panels.
Typically a high CRI lighting would be beneficial in applications where the accuracy of the colors of objects is critical such as, retail environments for brands, particularly high-end jewellery displays and clothing, stock displays in grocery stores, and supermarkets. A high CRI light source will allow you to showcase the true beauty of the illuminated objects within their design spaces and make them “pop,” adding a rich subtlety to the design.
The construction of a light panel determines the design flexibility that it can offer a customer. While brands provide both edge-lit and embedded panels, the broader application of the later is obvious.
Typically, edge-lit panels have the LEDs housed within a solid frame. These rigid frames reduce the design flexibility of the panels, thus limiting the shapes the panel can form. For instance, straight frames don’t permit curved shapes. On the other hand, an embedded panel houses its LED strips within the acrylic of the panel, thus avoiding the use of a frame. The LED strip curves to follow twists and turns of each cut, to make softly diffused LED panels in any shape and design.
OmniSheet, with embedded LEDs, can be cut into custom sizes, shapes, curves, and bends, allowing for one-to-one design matching.
OmniSheet is the result of an intelligent effort to make lighting inspiring, using craftsmanship to create a product that can endure challenging design requirements. With multiple patents and high customer satisfaction ratings, OmniSheet is built to last.
The heat exchange unit in an LED light panel is another factor that adds to the panel’s lifespan.
OmniSheet has a unique heat-sink mechanism that dissipates the generated heat more efficiently, thereby increasing the life of the panel – ~70,000 hours – while simultaneously providing consistent light quality with an industry-low return rate.
In summary, new lighting panels can not only transform a room; they can also frustrate a shopper. Hence, choosing the right panel that ticks off all your requirements is an absolute necessity.
With OmniSheet, while you get to choose from a manifold of LED panel light specifications ranging from rated power, emitting color, light output in lumens, and shape, you are also getting a panel that offers the best value on the market.
