The Merlin™ Series  (click here for Product Options)

The MERLIN™ is an attractive, efficient alternative to lensed 2x4 troffers, with excellent distribution. We've designed this mini-troffer to deliver the distribution of a lensed unit, but with minimal footprint in the valuable ceiling space– it only intrudes 2” into the plenum! Use the MERLIN™ to replace three-lamp lensed T8 troffers, with only one lamp to maintain. The 3.125" lens extends 3/4" below the ceiling surface to wash the ceiling with light to reduce background contrast for visual comfort.

Excellent in corridors too!

The diminutive MERLIN™ allows balancing of fixture layouts in an off-centered ceiling grid – align it at the edge of a 2x4 tile space, or in the center. Integral tile flanges support the acoustic ceiling tiles. And installation is a snap (actually a 'click') with the attached TALON-Grip™ t-bar clip. Available in 2, 3, 4 and 5 foot lengths to fit any grid. Amazing results in offices, utility spaces, corridors and other grid ceiling applications. We even have a gyp flange kit option (GF) for installation into a hard ceiling.
