Extruded plastic lighting lenses are used by a wide range of residential, commercial, industrial and medical applications. Diffuser panels are placed to the bottom or side of a light fixture and are manufactured in clear or many other diffused options. Diffusers control the brightness and unevenness of harsh lighting to create a soft lighting effect. They also protect lighting fixtures from the external environment and help conserve energy by providing more even lighting that reduces the need of additional fixtures.
Polycarbonate (PC) and acrylic (PMMA) diffusers are the most common types of diffuser lenses. Extruded plastic lighting lenses come in a variety of shapes ranging from smooth to contoured covers. Our custom-made lighting diffusers are manufactured according to your needs in different transparency options and can have colors, texturing (such as ribbing and prismatic patterns), or films added to create a customized look.
