Bright View Optical Engineering
Pioneers when it comes to high performance optics and high efficiency diffusers.

Bright View Technologies Corporation designed diffusers are based on high-efficiency micro-lenses and materials with optical quality transparency. Combination that provide excellent performance in angle control, concealment of light sources along with efficiency and aesthetics. Available in a variety of formats and substrates including UV tolerant films and rigid impact resistant sheets.

Bright View diffusers work in perfect synergy and in line with Bright White reflectors, notably maximizing the efficiency of fixtures and lighting systems.

Bright View Series-A
Asymmetric angle tilt diffusers

Series A diffusers provide an elegant solution for applications such as wallwashers, sign lighting, and specialty applications, providing a tilt angle to direct light to a specific wall or surface. It simultaneously combines draft management with light scattering for cross-surface applications reducing scalloping and increasing uniformity.

Recommendations for use and application:

– Series A diffusers are generally used with the microstructures oriented towards the LEDs or inside the luminaire.

– They have the highest performance when used with collimated or narrow input beams (up to 30 degrees), such as an LED with a TIR lens or parabolic reflector

– The diffuser can be tilted relative to the input beam to adjust the angle and light profile
– Custom manufacturing of other angles and extensions are available different from the catalog products:
A-AB20 series strong angle bend (21°) with limited backscatter with 5° diffusion from transverse wall and to wall.
Series A-AB08 smooth angle curvature (8°) with wide transverse wall diffusion of 60° (transverse wall diffusion) and 20° (diffusion towards the wall).

Beam angle aperture and tilt data are indicative and may vary depending on the design of the luminaire. In all cases, the manufacturer or designer must carry out the pertinent tests or contact our technical support service.

Bright View Series-B
Linear distribution for flat field illumination

Series B diffusers provide efficient distribution by means of a “batwing” distribution curve. The integration of the B series in luminaires provides a flat field beam profile, illuminating the floor or work surface uniformly, eliminating a central light source. They work with the same efficiency in LED and fluorescent luminaires.

Luminaires with flat field distributions can generally provide highly uniform illumination even when the spacing or distance between light points is greater compared to Lambert distribution luminaires.

Light source, the interior geometry of the luminaire and the choice of diffuser determine the light distribution. Parameters that can vary significantly depending on the specific design of each luminaire.

Recommendations for use and application:

– Series B diffusers have two different orientation sides. Light must enter from the brighter side); request the B Series diffusers application note for more information.

– The B series diffusers facilitate the orientation of the light beams in an efficient linear distribution.

– Other angles and degrees of nadir suppression are available for custom projects upon request.
B-LM5E-XXXX-HE20 Degree of Nadir Suppression “High” Concealment of Light Sources “Low”
B-LM5E-XXXX-HE30 Degree of Nadir Suppression “Medium” Concealment of Light Sources “Medium”
B-LM5E-XXXX-HE40 Degree of Nadir Suppression “Low” Concealment of Light Sources “High”

The light distribution is determined by the choice of diffuser, light source and geometry of the box and reflector. For this reason, Bright View offers several B-series options as well as an application engineering service to help optimize lighting fixture designs.

Bright View Series-C
High performance diffusers (perfect balance of concealment and transmission)

The C-series diffusers efficiently hide light sources and provide uniform illumination in both LED and fluorescent fixtures. They provide excellent control and management of draft angle aperture, color mixing and color uniformity.

Adjusting the concealment of light sources while maintaining peak performance has never been easier. 15 levels of diffusion intensity and light beam aperture control make this possible and offer solutions to suit different types of applications.

– Depending on the opening angle we want to obtain, we can position the microstructure towards the outside (smaller opening and greater concealment) or inside (greater opening and less concealment) of the luminaire.

– Obtain the perfect balance of transmission and concealment by choosing the diffuser among the 15 available variants, the one with the highest efficiency, but which also meets the objectives of concealing the light sources.

– Use the C-HE and C-HH series with other BrightView optical series or rigid micro prismatic plates for even more precise control of the light beam and thus reduce glare or UGR.

Recommendations for use and application:

– Standard C-HE single-sided diffusers: work efficiently in combination with other Bright View optical series, achieving excellent management and performance.

– C-HE05 to C-HE90 offer 9 levels of concealment and now also available with optional anti-humidity coating on the back surface. New!

– The C-HH variants with double microstructure offer maximum concealment and extreme efficiency. With their double-sided optical coating, they provide greater concealment from LED light sources.

Efficiency, performance and control of the lighting curve depends on all the elements that make up the luminaire, so it is recommended to carry out tests or consult one of our specialists in lighting technology.

Bright View Series-E
Elliptical Asymmetric Diffusers

Provide optimal distribution in wall wash or sales linear lighting applications, but also in elongated spaces such as corridors. Its microstructure has been designed to work in one direction, the efficiency in the LED incidence zone can be even higher than that of the Bright View C series diffusers. The unique micro-prismatic design of the E series offers a characteristic visual result. They attenuate the intensity of the light beam in an optimal way, offering an element of creating atmosphere in architectural spaces. An ideal solution for concealed fixtures such as large format luminaires. Its asymmetrical opening achieves uniform lighting even on vertical surfaces.

Recommendations for use and application:

– E series diffusers are directional providing an elliptical lighting curve and are generally used with the microstructures facing outward.

– In wall washer applications, the E series diffusers can be used with the microstructures facing inwards or facing the LEDs.

– Nine different references from E-0110 to E-1060 adjust almost individually to each lighting project. Turnkey projects are also carried out on request.

Efficiency, performance and control of the lighting curve depends on all elements that make up the luminaire, so it is recommended to carry out tests or consult one of our application specialists.

Bright View Series-G
Glare suppression diffusers (UGR)

G Series diffusers suppress light above 65 degrees to reduce visual glare and improve the Unified Glare Index (UGR) rating on lighting fixtures. They are an effective component in meeting IESNA RP1-04 and EN12464 glare specifications. They offer a smooth cut without color separation, which increases visual appeal and the ability to conceal LED light sources. The G series can be used in combination with the C series diffusers for even higher gain. G-Series diffusers can increase the intensity of center candles (on axis) by up to 30%, or even up to 60% when used with a C-HE55 or C-HE80 diffuser.

Recommendations for use and application:

– G Series diffusers must maintain a flat position to achieve glare control. They cannot form curves to conform to the symmetry of a luminaire.

– The G series diffusers must be used with the microstructure oriented towards the outside of the lamp (the shiny smooth side faces the inside)

– 5 variants available: G-GH85 series diffuse surface with dual function of concealment of light sources and glare control, G-GC90 series with uniform diffuse surface, G-GPHS series with 1.5 mm prism pattern, G- GPHM with 2.4mm prism pattern and G-GPHX with 10mm prism pattern.

Indications of optical performance, including glare, gain, angles, and efficiencies, are typical average values; vary significantly depending on the design of the luminaire. Data were obtained using a test device with a Lambertian light source on a goniophotometer. The available G-series diffusers can be used in conjunction with the C-series diffusers offering greater concealment of light sources and further reducing glare.
