Perimeter lighting systems are wonderfully versatile. Use them to serve as a significant design element, highlighting the architecture of the space. Create the appearance of a floating ceiling while illuminating walls, adding depth and visual interest. Light corridors from the perimeter, in a subtle way that avoids glare and does not detract from the visual experience. Solus can help you find the perimeter system that will work best for your project's individualized needs. Here are 5 lines whose perimeter lighting systems make specification and installation a breeze.
