These area unit usually 600 x 600mm to suit the standard suspended ceiling system, tho' there are enticing circular alternatives capable of delivering an lighting performance.
In architectural lighting, Lenses diffusers are new addition because of the advent of LED. Whereas a diffuser scattered the light wide and far, the lens is intended to manage the light from LED chips and transfer to given beam pattern. A diffused light would waste some amount energy as it scattered the light broadly around the space. Whereas, Lenses deliver light in a specific way. Lenses are transparent and made of acrylic, silicone resin or polycarbonate depending upon the requirement of the lens.
