Light Management

Angle Management

Bright View provides a full range of diffusion strengths for forming and managing luminaire light distributions, including batwing, asymmetric, and elliptical light distributions.


Angle Bending (Asymmetric Direction Turning) Diffusers

Angle Bending Diffusers

A-Series diffusers provide an elegant solution for wall-wash, sign illumination, and specialty applications, providing an angle bend to direct the light toward a wall or surface, combined with a simultaneous cross-wall diffusion, to eliminate scalloping and increase uniformity.



B-Series patent-pending batwing diffusers provide uniform flat-field illumination, suppressing central hot spots and allowing greater ceiling spacing. They will be available in a variety of angles, in linear and circular patterns.

Glare Control


Bright View patent-pending Glare Control diffusers combine suppression of high-angle light with a smooth visual cutoff. In addition, these G-Series diffusers enhance the central (on-axis) brightness in direct and edge-lit lighting.


Gain Center Candlepower


Increase center beam candlepower (CBCP) for troffers and edge-lit panels using G-Series diffusers, increasing on-axis candela intensity by as much as 30%. Add a C-Series diffuser and the increase can be up to 60%.

For spot and flood applications, Bright View M-Series mixing diffusers provide beam smoothing and color mixing, maximizing CBCP without excess spreading to higher angles.

Light Management Diffuser Products

Product Line
