LED pendant made from a Fresnel lenses dome providing a distinctive visual decor to your hotel lobby, restaurant or brewpub. Achieve an industrial modern look that customers will notice and appreciate the optical performance & origins of these fixtures. Runway lights are made from industrial parts called landing lights, or guidance lighting at airports, airfield and airstrips. They can be seen at railroad crossings, bridges. AKA obstruction lights, beacon lights or warning lights on towers and other tall structures.

Fresnel Optic Lens – Curved surfaces are replaced with flat surfaces or ridges creating an array of radiant prism rings with steeper prisms on the edges, and a flat or slightly convex center. This create a lighthouse or beacon effect distributing the illumination throughout the whole fixture and intensifying it into parallel illuminating beams at the center. We place the bulb toward the bottom for task lighting and use the Fresnel optics create a diffused glowing effect. You will find this lighting effect very pleasing to look as it delivers illumination to the work surface. The Fresnel optics reduces glare, making the fixture glow and radiate illumination.
