The classroom baffle luminaires of childhood take on a modern twist with the IceTray family.Peerless introduces another high-performance illumination solution designed to meet these particular needs of school environments, commercial offices and high-energy retail environments.

As millions of children enter into their classrooms this year, what affect will their learning environment have on them? Good lighting is a critical component of today's school. Poor lighting can cause headache, eye strain and fatigue while reducing student and teacher productivity. Quality lighting enhances learning by increasing visibility in classrooms and by providing the proper illumination in corridors and throughout the school. Tightening operating budgets sometimes make it difficult to obtain the latest technological advances in construction materials. In turn, aging schools are likely equipped with inadequate lighting and require lighting renovation.
