Design Reference

This page for reference use when speaking to our Support Expert.

We provide FREE support on product questions. Let our knowledgeable staff help you in a way that is unrivaled by your retail store and other online shopping experiences. Speak with us first to ensure your application is appropriate for our product capabilities. There is no charge for questions related to where and how to use our products. In some cases, by using our published specifications, photo-metrics, installation instruction sheet, and design templates - all found on our website, and us answering a few clarifying questions at no charge, you don't need to request a consultation session.

For example fixture application usage See Application Photos.

For exterior home use, click on these 8 Installation Scenario Photos.
Hit "Next" in upper right of photo to toggle through the 8 photos.

For design self help get beam diameters / intensities with Specifications.
For doing your own design, we suggest 4000K white light, elliptical lenses for 1 and 2 story wall washes, and wide lenses around front entrances. If you are recessing on a sloped soffit 6:12 or less, use medium lens instead of wide lens. Otherwise for horizontal soffit, use the elliptical lens. 3-axis can use the elliptical lens on any sloped soffit. If at the peak in 3-axis, use medium lens instead of elliptical lens. Call us if you need self-help clarification of the rationale for these recommendations.

Optionally Email Your Photos or Plans

If you need us to proactively guide you on design and installation in terms of a consultation related to your home specifics using photos or plans, then you can optionally order our professional Consultation Service. Let us save you time and effort when we show you alternative choices so you can pick what best meets your needs and desires. Our tips will really be helpful too.
