WhiteOptics Launches Glare Reduction Film

With new WhiteOptics® DFGR, Glare Reduction Films, designers can achieve glare reduction in direct-lit , edgelit and downlight fixtures.  The DFGR micro-structures provide high angle light cutoff while increasing on-axis intensity.  Combined with the proper diffusor, DFGR can be used to achieve UGR (Unified Glare Rating) of 19 or lower in many types of luminaires.
