Hess Launches ACCADIA With Revolutionary Reflector Technology

Hess GmbH Licht + Form has introduced ACCADIA, a LED in-ground luminaire family with a new revolutionary reflector technology. This innovative product in the asymmetric version generates indirect light completely without glare – currently a unique feature among in-ground luminaires. The entire product family allows architects and planners to implement attractive lighting scenes for the most diverse applications – for example façade lighting and wall accenting. And the luminaires combine the highest light quality with a unique design – something that is typical for Hess.

Light is much more than simply illumination and plays an increasingly important role as an atmospheric design element; not only for cities and municipalities, but also for industry and private applications. Skilfully deployed, light not only stages urban landmarks but also makes an important contribution, as a stylistic means, to the architecture of public, industrial and private spaces as well as parks and buildings.

With ACCADIA, Hess follows this trend and at the same time sets a new standard. The high-quality LED in-ground luminaires let façades and architectural features such as columns, arches and sculptures as well as trees and plants shine in a completely new light.

Reflector technology for the best light without any dark zones

Outstanding lighting results are guaranteed thanks to the deployed reflector technology: Reflectors developed by Bartenbach ensure extremely homogeneous light distribution for the rotationally symmetrical as well as the asymmetrical versions starting from the bottom edge of a surface to be illuminated – without the previously common “dark zones”.

Unique and revolutionary “spoon reflectors” in the asymmetric versions generate an indirect and glare-free light – currently a unique feature and USP for in-ground luminaires.
The reflector unit is already set ex-works to the conditions on site. Different LED configurations and housing types provide a wide range of possibilities for atmospheric illuminations and wall accentuations. The light colours 3000K and 4000 K are available as standard selections. 5700 K is available upon request. The product family is available in two housing types – round and rectangular – and in different sizes. The ex-works pre-wiring of the ACCADIAs allows for a very easy installation.
The in-ground luminaire’s clear design also meets the highest standards. The smooth surface (designed completely without any protruding screws) prevents wear and contamination due to weathering and thus avoids any negative effects on the light distribution. In addition, a sophisticated maintenance concept allows the LED modules to be replaced easily if needed.
