INTERVALS Recessed Downlights deliver high-performance technology from a sophisticated, flexible modular system. This specification-grade downlight system extends and supports SONNEMAN — A Way of Light’s existing INTERVALS Linear Suspended Beam system to achieve a comprehensive and unified approach to dynamically lighting interior spaces. Challenged by the opportunity to rethink and reimagine a new approach to recessed downlighting, the design team sought to encompass the best features and performance possible in a unified, integrated, and modern way. With the company’s extensive knowledge and expertise in LED lighting, they built a high output, energy-efficient system that provides modularity and flexibility.

INTERVALS high-performance recessed downlights are available in four sizes: 1″, 2″, 3″, and 4″, with performance capabilities increasing with scale. The light engines, optics, trims, ceiling applications, and housings are all interchangeable within each size providing unparalleled flexibility in the field. Installations can be reconfigured on-site to use a different power level, size, or shape right up to the final ceiling installation, and a different colour temperature, optic, trim style, ceiling application, or finish even after the ceiling is installed.

INTERVALS Recessed Downlights are offered in fixed (all sizes), adjustable (2”, 3”, and 4” only), and wall wash (3” and 4” only) models, and all models are fully serviceable from below the ceiling. The fixed and wall wash models feature a seamless fit between the optic and trim aperture, for optimal energy efficiency and light output. The 2”, 3”, and 4” sizes feature a patent pending spring-loaded connection between the light engine and trim, allowing for field installation of multiple optical accessories. These three sizes also share the same patent pending in-ceiling housing, allowing for early- or late-stage changes during construction.

The adjustable models offer 40 degrees of continuous, step-free locking tilt and a full 360 degrees of locking rotational aiming, allowing them to direct light towards the target with precision and retain their desired position. The INTERVALS wall wash model features a dedicated asymmetric wall wash optic, bathing a vertical surface with exceptionally even illumination from ceiling to floor, without scalloping or shadows.

INTERVALS light engines feature cold-forged aluminium heatsinks that provide optimal thermal performance. This feature is a unique differentiator from other downlights on the market, as the cold-forged aluminium material allows for smaller and lighter heatsinks than the extruded or die-cast aluminium options from other brands. The Cree COB light source provides high centre beam candlepower without multiple shadows, and is available in five color temperatures with 2-step MacAdam ellipse colour binning for consistent colour. In addition, INTERVALS Recessed Downlights can be ordered with warm dimming and tunable white options. INTERVALS optics are high-efficiency hybrid TIR optics, providing a smooth beam pattern with no media or beam softening lens required. This system meets California Title 24 Part 6 JA8 High Efficacy LED and Chicago Plenum requirements when used with standard drivers and IC housings.
