The degree of cut-off or shielding is determined by the honeycomb cell diameter and depth, as shown below in the table and in the illustration at right. Specific products will require specific cell and depth dimensions. For example, an MR16 louver uses a 1/8" x .125 louver, which gives a 45 degree cut-off. Consult the factory for special cut-off requirements.

Note that because of the thin material used to make our louvers, all Honeylite louvers offer high "open area". This means you can achieve glare control with very little loss of light. Open areas are shown in the table below.

Honeylite louvers and accessories are available in a Milbrite (MLB) clear aluminum finish or black (BLK). Machined parts such as an MR16 Holder have a black anodized finish. All other parts are coated with our proprietary polymer coating, Borden Black. Our polymer coating chemically grafts to the substrate, has superior abrasion resistance while being able to withstand 350°F with no out-gassing and has very low VOC's. (Note that some Accessory parts are supplied with a finely textured powder coat.) Standard finish is eggshell.

TEMPERATURE LIMITATIONS: Honeylite louvers can withstand temperatures up to 350°F, meeting the need of most lamp sources. Operating at higher temperatures for extended periods of time will result in the louver blades separating.
