Light connects architecture + humanity
Breakthrough Illumination. Unlimited Potential.
We believe in the balance of design and performance without compromise. Careful selection of luminaires and thoughtful application of lighting design in educational spaces has a direct connection to increasing productivity and well-being of students and teaching staff, plus offers energy saving benefits for the education facilities.
Precision anidolic-extraction optics delivers exceptional uniformity on the desk in the classroom or the table in the science lab with lower energy density and maximum visual comfort.
Luminaires designed for the integration of illumination with inspired architectural spaces, long life and easy maintenance optimize environments for purpose, achievement and advancement.
Symmetrical and asymmetrical distributions, up/down hemispherical control and other flexible options can be used to optimize the lighting for classrooms, audio/video rooms, libraries and other spaces in the educational environment.
Seamless and agnostic control system integration provides ultimate compatibility and flexibility with classroom controls, daylight harvesting, occupancy sensing, or other building control systems.
Simple is complicated. Invisible is Innovation.
Fluxwerx optics are engineered specifically for LED sources. Integrated with minimalist design and architectural materials, our luminaires deliver a broad range of options with superior optical and energy performance. Precise distributions provide greater-on-center spacing, exceptional work plane uniformity with lower energy density and maximum visual comfort.
Today’s classrooms are multifunctional learning spaces designed to inspire. Flexible, comfortable, high performance lighting is critical to complement and support the variety of collaborative and individual-led teaching and learning activities and functions these environments demand.
Optimize academic potential
Luminaires that deliver wide on-center spacing and exceptional uniformity save energy, costs and materials as fewer fixtures are needed in classrooms. As classrooms evolve into
collaborative workspaces and deviate from traditional eyes-front configurations, the use of lighting that addresses multiple conditions becomes critical.
Entries / Atriums / Halls
Large, open and central spaces form the physical and virtual heart of any educational facility. Form first impressions where people, place and culture connect.
No longer just a throughway
Large, socially vibrant spaces encourage multiple uses and demand lighting designed for ultimate flexibility, control and comfort. Trimless finish of recessed fixtures in this atrium offers a subtle punctuation of the ceiling plane, ensuring complete integration with the architecture and a cohesive lighting experience.
Controlled lighting is critical for purpose-specific instructional spaces with clearly defined ‘educator zones’ and audio/visual requirements.
Lighting in lecture halls often differs from classroom lighting as the distance between the lecturer and the audience is typically greater. Independently controllable direct and indirect lighting optimizes illumination of the presenter and presentation for ideal communications and learning.
Lighting for epiphanies
Presentation-ready lighting takes into consideration vertically mounted writing boards and monitors positioned on vertical surfaces. Suspended luminaires enable independent hemispherical control and provide fully dimmable or switchable control of the indirect (up) and direct (down) distributions to suit the lighting and energy needs of the space and people in the environment. Ideal for multipurpose rooms and spaces with presentation, projection or video conferencing requirements.
Research, group learning, storytelling, and individual study are just some of the many uses for libraries today. This kind of versatility challenges convention and demands lighting for the future that is engineered from the start.
No longer just books
Particularly well-suited to reading environments and reconfigurable spaces, discrete general area lighting provides all the benefits of linear suspended luminaires with maximum design flexibility.
Labs + Training
Spaces for science-based study and lab work often have variable general and task lighting requirements. Occupants increasingly expect adjustable, glare-free, dimmer-controlled and color-accurate spaces.
Light at the speed of learning
Balanced energy consumption is an important consideration as laboratories have traditionally been high energy users due to electrical and cooling requirements. Selecting energy efficient luminaires helps to lower overall electricity consumption costs, balancing occupant comfort with high performance and value.
Corridors are more than mere passageways.
Similar to break-out collaboration areas, these transitional spaces offer an opportunity for one-on-one and small-group learning sessions, providing social fabric for people to converge and interact.
From conduit to conference
Automated controls such as occupancy sensors can increase energy savings. Occupancy sensors can be programmed to dim the lights where and when daylight is available, and maintain required minimum foot candle levels for safety purposes.
Design + Build to Last
Complementing our luminaires, drivers are designed for multiple orientations and to accommodate a variety of ceiling conditions with simple installation methods and easy access for maintenance.
To streamline installation, invisible design details require no electrical connections at fixture joints, creating virtually seamless continuous runs. Our fixtures also arrive on site with endcaps and power drop cords factory installed and drivers prewired and tested for every circuit.
Suitable for grid heights of ≤ 1.75" (44mm)
Suitable for GWB thickness of ≤ 0.875" (22 mm)
For ceiling conditions with surface conduit or recessed J-boxes.
Recommended Wire Gauge for Minimal Losses (AWG): [30 ft | 18 ga] [50 ft | 14 ga] [80 ft | 12 ga]
Our products are designed and built to last, typically maintaining more than 90 percent of their initial light output for more than 60,000 hours of operation, well above the industry standard. This means better quality, longer lasting lighting solutions for education spaces, resulting in exceptionally low or no routine lighting maintenance.
Color Rendering Index: 80 vs 90 CRI
Color Rendering Index (CRI) represents the ability of a light source to faithfully reproduce object colors, mimicking daylight. All Fluxwerx luminaires–suspended, recessed and discrete–are available with CRI > 80 or CRI > 90 LEDs in all versions, and comply with WELL Building Standard “Electric Light Quality” requirements.

Independent up/down control
Independent UP and DOWN switchable and dimmable control of luminaires is ideal for classroom environments, multipurpose rooms and spaces with presentation, projection or video conferencing requirements.
Available at no additional cost in Fluxwerx suspended luminaires, the separated circuitry allows simple adjustment of the proportions of UP and DOWN light to suit the lighting and energy needs of the space and people in the environment.
Controls + Sensors
Agnostic electromechanical design simply integrates with building lighting control protocols such as 0-10V, DALI, and a variety of energy management systems.
Integration with sensors saves energy, allowing light level adjustments based on available daylight and occupancy.
Light inspires and energizes our environment. Responsive and responsible lighting can boost productivity, enhance well-being and transform a space.
Our Dynamic White enabled solutions offer a simple and affordable range of options designed to meet functional requirements for human-centric environments.
All function. No fuss.
Tunable-white LED lighting offers highly efficient general illumination combined with dimming and the ability to tune correlated color temperature (CCT) from warm- to cool-white. This can effectively be applied in classroom settings where teachers can set lighting/visual conditions to support activities. Preset scenes are helpful for teachers to quickly get students’ attention or cue them to transition between certain activities.
Intuitively adjust the intensity and color temperature of light to suit your specific needs. This simple and affordable single zone device is available with two or three way switching. No commissioning required.
