Square LED Housings Target Aesthetics


Nora Lighting introduces Onyx Squares, modernist square-shaped LED retrofit downlights with deep-set optics for optimal visual comfort. The Squares can be installed in new construction, remodels or retrofits, and are a recent addition to Nora’s Onyx LED Downlight Series.

New models are available in 3 inch apertures for 4 inch housings (650 lumens) and 4.125 inch apertures for 6 inch housing (800 lumens). An integral driver and Samsung LEDs are part of the Onyx package.

Onyx Squares can be retrofitted into existing 4 inch and 6 inch round housings and oriented to any position within the housings.

Featuring contemporary sharp-edged styling, Onyx Squares are designed for residential and light commercial sites, and include a smooth white reflector and regressed lens with glare-free illumination. All Onyx models have 90+ CRI for realistic color rendition, and are available in 2700K, 3000K and 4000K. The Onyx Series is dimmable, Energy Star -listed, and cULus Wet Label listed.
