    Nora Lighting expands its low profile, surface-mounted Opal LED Series with the new AC Opal. The AC Opal does not require a driver and mounts easily over a standard J-Box, even pancake-type fixture boxes in retrofits or new construction.

    AC Opal measures just 7/8” deep by 7 ¼” wide. The low profile is ideal for bathrooms, laundries, utility areas, pantries, closets, showers and more. The fixture is dimmable and produces even illumination with 1050 lumen (15W) at 90+CRI.  A white polymer lens diffuser eliminates LED diode images.
