An exclusive light shelf system that captures daylight, BrightShelf was awarded Architectural Products' Product Innovation Award in the solar control category. Due to its patented ogee curve, BrightShelf works in conjunction with the sun, catching light throughout the day as the sun's position changes: “Going from a flat light shelf to a curved one is like night and day,” says Boyd Goodson, General Manager of Hunter Douglas Contract. “We are able to capture and control daylight much more effectively.” BrightShelf offers more light than any other light shelf and helps diffuse light further into the room, creating an ambient glow and lighting space more evenly. Made of 100% recyclable material, BrightShelf is also easy to install thanks to its turnkey system.
