      Product Features


      Kawneer has rewritten the energy saving value equation for its architectural light shelf by using minimalist design principles. The result is a flexible and versatile solution that helps reduce the need for artificial lighting and increase energy savings in a building. At the core of their functionality, architectural light shelves are designed to reflect sunlight deeper into the interior of a building by "bouncing" natural light up to the ceiling and have been proven to reduce perimeter lighting requirements and enhance the occupant experience.



      InLighten® leverages minimal material content, sightlines, weight, installation and maintenance efforts, all while maximizing value, daylighting and design options.


      InLighten® Interior Light Shelf features an extruded aluminum chassis system and offers several panel choices. The availability of depths of up to 30" (762 mm) allows you to maximize the overall reflective surface area. The light shelf also incorporates a tilt feature for easy cleaning of the top reflective panel surface.


      The ability to attach InLighten® Interior Light Shelf to multiple Kawneer curtain wall and storefront framing systems makes it a perfect candidate for either new or retrofit projects.
