Luminit Adds Lenticular Batwing Format to Its Expanding Line of Light Shaping Diffusers

Designed for recessed and suspended ceiling lights in commercial settings, the Lenticular Batwing Diffuser is a cost-effective, single-piece solution for spreading peak distribution while also eliminating hot spots and reducing glare.

TORRANCE, CA – December 5,  Luminit LLC, a privately held, high technology company specializing in custom and standard holographic diffusers, is adding a Lenticular Batwing Diffuser (LBD) to its expanding line of products. Ideal for retail chains, offices spaces and other commercial environments with multiple recessed or suspended ceiling lights, LBD is a double-sided, single-film that includes an elliptical Light Shaping Diffuser on one side and a prismatic structure on the other. The unique design not only increases the light distribution of linear light fixtures but eliminates hotspots and reduces glare at the same time.
 “We’re very pleased with the results of our new batwing diffuser,” notes Suleyman Turgut, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Luminit. “The design is a unique single-film that accomplishes critical light shaping goals but saves manufacturing costs and assembly time.”

According to Turgut, Luminit’s Lenticular Batwing Diffuser enables larger spacing ratios for fixtures but also allows designers and engineers to adjust hiding power without sacrificing lobe distribution. The film has a high transmission efficiency and a unique design that spreads the peak distribution away from the center, while eliminating hot spots and reducing glare for more aesthetic and human-centric lighting conditions. 

Luminit’s Lenticular Batwing Diffuser can be integrated into linear recessed fixtures up to 8’ long, LED light panels, down lights, linear fixtures, hanging pendants and backlights, as well as luminaires. LBD is available in mini-roll tapes in custom widths, and designers can choose either a 60° x 30° or 60° x 10° diffusion angle. For more information or to request a free sample, email

Luminit Announces Monolithic Glass Light Shaping Diffusers®  

Luminit’s Light Shaping Diffusers are now available in a durable All-Glass version for high volume and low cost applications like laser and LED based light engines in conference room/movie projectors as well as general/entertainment lighting fixtures/projectors.

TORRANCE, CA – May 26, 2016  – Luminit LLC, a privately held, high technology company specializing in custom and standard holographic diffusers, introduces a new line of high volume and low-cost Light Shaping Diffusers at Display Week (booth #611). Available in angles from 1° up to 15°, Luminit’s new Monolithic Glass Light Shaping Diffusers (MG-LSDs) can be mass produced at a low per piece cost and offer original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) a cost-effective path to improve beam quality of their light engines.

“Laser and LED light engines are extremely efficient and offer brighter images but beam quality can be a challenge due to inherent speckle and/or multiple light sources” notes Suleyman Turgut, VP of Sales & Marketing at Luminit. “Our new monolithic glass diffusers can be integrated at the design phase and help solve these issues with minimal addition to the bill of materials (BOM) and minimal impact to the system’s optical efficiency.”

Available in various shapes, the material composition of MG-LSD is entirely borofloat glass so there is no organic material that can degrade or outgas over time. The diffusers can endure temperatures up to 400° C, and provide light transmission between 91% -93% or 95%-98% with optional AR coating.

“Improving beam quality and reducing laser speckle is now possible at a very low cost,” concludes Turgut. “We’re excited about this new product and how it will enable our customers in the lighting and projector industries to provide more cost-effective solutions to their customers.”

Luminit is currently working with key customers and sampling is limited. For more information about Luminit’s Monolithic Glass Light Shaping Diffusers, contact

Luminit to Showcase New Volumetric Light Shaping Diffuser Technology at SIL 2016

Ideal for use on a variety of ceiling fixtures, Luminit’s latest lighting innovation offers high optical efficiency and excellent hiding power.

TORRANCE, CA – January 15, 2016  – Luminit LLC (SIL Booth #801), a privately held, high technology company specializing in custom and standard holographic diffusers, will showcase their newest diffusion products, including  Volumetric Light Shaping Diffusers, or VLSDs.. Unlike Luminit’s Light Shaping Diffusers (LSDs) that use micro-surface structures to achieve high performance diffusion, VLSD incorporates volumetric diffusion technology for diffusing recessed down lights, troffers, lighting pendants, and other types of ceiling fixtures.

 “The LED lighting market has been asking for a high performance rigid diffuser at a competitive price and we are excited to be show this at Strategies in Light this year,” comments Suleyman Turgut, Director of Sales at Luminit. “Our customers will appreciate how versatile VSLD is and how well the technology performs on ceiling fixtures.”

With high optical efficiency and excellent hiding power, Luminit VSLDs are UV stable and easily thermoformed for custom installations.  Light weight and impact resistant, these rigid diffusers are constructed .75mm and 2mm thick PMMA (acrylic) and can be applied to new or existing LED fixtures. According to Luminit, VLSDs have a transmission efficiency of up to 85%* and pricing is commensurate with the company’s thinner film.

Luminit Volumetric Light Shaping Diffusers® are available in sizes up to 2 x 8-foot sheets and are easily thermo-formed.
