Holophane: Leaders in Lighting for over 110 YearsHolophane
Holophane, hailing from Granville, Ohio, is an Acuity Brands company that provides lighting systems for commercial, industrial, emergency, and outdoor markets.

The Holophane Advantage
Holophane lighting systems are built to last, with precision, a long life, and top-notch performance in mind. Premium components provide superior energy savings, and deliver lower operating and maintenance costs. Holophane gives you the tools you need to do the job right the first time.

A Century of Growth
Holophane has a rich American history, with over 110 years of operation under its belt.

The early 1900s were known as the “Progressive Era,” but the public wasn’t all that open-minded about artificial light yet. Luckily, Holophane was up for the challenge. Representatives worked diligently to educate trade, commercial, and professional groups about the benefits of artificial lighting.

Fast-forward to World War II, when Holophane continued to serve our nation. Special reps trekked to Washington to help the Army and Navy tackle the unique lighting problems of the war. (Did you know that this era would later become known as the first “engineer’s war?”)

Holophane Today
Ongoing innovation, product development, and a strong dedication to the lighting industry has earned Holophane leader status. Today, the borosilicate glass reflector/refractor is Holophane’s claim to fame. The glass prisms of this technology create “uplight” and “downlight.” The end-result is uniform lighting without a glare or dark spots.
