Juniper’s lens finishes allow for custom light output for different configurations and uses. Although you can’t go wrong with either Frosted or Clear options, we have recommended some common uses and guidelines for choosing the right lens finish for your light fixtures.
Illuminated Frosted (Top) & Clear (Bottom) Lenses.
Frosted (Top) & Clear (Bottom) Lenses Off.
Frosted lenses are semi-opaque white with a matte finish and give off an 90° beam angle. Clear lenses feature a glossy finish with a crystal clear lens and provide a 45° beam angle. When lighting your entire room, use frosted lenses to disperse light in a soft and wide beam. When lighting smaller objects or functional areas of the space, use clear lenses to focus more light to a smaller, more personal surface.

Choosing Lens Finishes By Space
For general bedroom lighting, keep a soft glow for a soothing light using frosted lenses in your THIN system fixtures. However, if you are using the THIN Task Lamp as a bedside table lamp or wall-mounted reading lamp, the clear lenses that come standard will provide the perfect lighting for reading before bed.
Frosted lenses spread light evenly at a wider angle than clear lenses. The THIN Surface Mount Vanity Light with rotational light segments enable the user to do their morning routine and turn the segments away from the face once finished.
Juniper’s suggestions should be used as general guidelines. Of course, each space is unique with its own custom needs. Both lens options are perfectly acceptable for all lighting installations.
