AVOIDA-NOTCH™ FRAMING
(For use with PARA-LITE 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5; DECO-ROUND 33; DECO-ROUND 50; HEXABOLIC™ 2 and PLASTIC LOUVERS)

Avoida-Notch

Avoida-Notch™ easily adapts to Para-Lite 1, Para-Lite 2/2, Para-Lite 3/2, Para-Lite 4, Para-Lite 5/2, Deco-Round 33, Deco-Round 50, Hexabolic™ 2 and Plastic Louvers for use in most standard fluorescent lighting fixtures. This product eliminates the necessity for louver notching and at the same time eliminates the halo affect often associated with notching.
Lighting Fixtures
Through a special sonic welding process we can bond any of our plastic parabolic or straight blade louvers with the plastic Avoida-Notch™ rail. This rail gives the louver a flange and will allow it to easily slide into most any fixture doorframes regardless of the depth. When dealing with a shallow profile lighting fixture with limited doorframe height clearance, we apply Avoida-Notch™ in an inverted position.
Lighted Ceilings
The inverted mounting method also allows an optional design feature in that the louvers drop below the ceiling line when the louver is placed in a standard T-grid ceiling or below the fixture line when used in conjunction with a fluorescent lighting fixture.
It is always best to supply a fixture doorframe when placing your order for a louver with Avoida-Notch™.

Specifications
Avoida-Notch™ shall be type AN50 or AN100 as manufactured by A.L.P. Lighting Components, Inc. This framing flange shall be extruded of high impact plastic and assembled with mitered corners. Avoida-Notch™ is available in two framing options: flush and inverted mounting. These frames shall be permanently affixed to the louvers, by sonic welding, providing maximum strength. Finishes are available to match standard louver colors and also in black or white.
Lighting Fixtures
A louver framing flange can adapt the louver to fit most standard fluorescent lighting fixtures. This product eliminates the necessity for louver notching. Using this product in an inverted mounting position, allows for the installation of parabolic louvers in shallow profile lighting fixtures with limited doorframe height clearance.
The inverted mounting method also provides an unusual accent or frame feature for lighting fixtures.
Lighted Ceilings
The use of the Avoida-Notch™ optional frame in an inverted position creates an interesting perimeter reveal for ceiling applications.
