Philips Lightolier Calculite LED downlights generation 3 

Downlights are a versatile tool used to enhance spaces and create visual appeal. As an ambient light source, recessed downlights create a comfortable, soothing illumination throughout the space without distraction. At the same time, downlights can boldly or subtly accentuate architectural or design elements to create rich dimensions and visual interest. No matter how downlights are incorporated into your lighting design, trust market-leading Philips Lightolier Calculite LED generation 3 downlights to maximize the impact of your lighting design.


Visual appeal


Calculite LED downlights focus on three beam spreads (spot, narrow, wide) with the right distribution and light output. This creates more uniform light with fewer downlights and smaller apertures, without worrying about glare or distractions.

User comfort 


Calculite’s soft beam transitions provide flawless consistency in a space, allowing higher lumen options in smaller apertures, with no increase in perceived brightness.

Installation efficiency  


Calculite LED downlight’s unique three-part system of frame-driver/light engine-reflector (multiple patents pending) saves time and hassle from start to finish.  

Calculite LED generation 3 specification-grade downlighting delivers exceptional visual comfort and optical control, extraordinary mechanical precision, installation efficiency and future proofing.

Easy to Specify

The universal frame is independent from the driver, and accommodates a wide range of lumen packages, driver types and CCTs, including 120V and 277V inputs. This provides installation ease as well as flexibility in forecasting as project needs evolve, or as unexpected changes arise.
