FAQ: Is the THIN Suspension Bright Enough for my Space?

Having a slim linear profile, the THIN Suspension is often questioned for its capacity to illuminate a room. We’re here to tell you more about our THIN Suspension and what you should look for in fixtures to execute your lighting plans for any space.


About the THIN Suspension

The THIN Suspension is a slender lighting solution with a 1/2-inch LED segment that embodies a minimal profile. It comes from our large collection of modular linear fixtures, the THIN Lighting System, designed by Peter Bristol. This architectural lighting can interconnect its segments for extensive runs. It is further elevated by its rotatable segment that users can individually rotate a full 360°.

Brightness of the THIN Suspension

Determining the brightness of your fixture is measured by its lumens. The THIN Suspension exudes a dimmable output of up to 920LM. For an ultra-slim profile, this lumen count illuminates high-output lighting. However, the brightness needed in a room still varies. It has to be precisely calculated and you can do this by figuring out the square footage of your space. Multiply this by its recommend foot-candle to be guided accordingly. Refer to our chart.

Recommended LED Lighting Solution

While the THIN Suspension casts magnificent output on its own, we still recommend that you carefully design your lighting plan in layers. Combine various fixtures in one room with a cohesive design to create a comfortable space. We also highly suggest that you interconnect THIN Suspensions to multiply its lumens for brighter illumination. However, if you would like to multiply LED segments without increasing the fixture’s length, THIN Multiples Dyad, Triad, and Tetrad fixtures provide higher lumen output. Juniper offers a range of high-quality lighting products that can adorn all residential, commercial, and hospitality spaces.
