One FABRICore light fixture is 48" x 48", which is the same area as 4 traditional 24" x 24" light panels. This means it fits into a standard drop ceiling grid and you only pay to have 1 light installed instead of 4 - a nice cost savings!

FABRICore light fixture
This mounting kit is used when the luminaire is used as a lay-in a standard 15/16" grid ceiling.
LED lights don’t “burn out” like traditional incandescent or fluorescent lights.
They have a “useful life” that depends on where they are being used. LEDs slowly (very slowly) fade over a long period time until there not enough light coming out of them to properly illuminate the space.
FABRICore fixtures are rated to have 80% of the original amount of light after 75,000 hours of operation (“L80 = 75,000hr”). This means that if they are on for 12 hours per day, they will still be providing about 8000 lumens of light after 17 years.
Traditional light fixtures DON’T absorb sound. That’s what makes FABRICore unique! The fixtures are made with special sound absorbing materials that capture sound waves and prevent them from being reflected back into the room as noise. Just as importantly, their large size is the key to providing enough surface area for the sound to reach these materials. FABRICore has been tested by a world-renowned acoustics laboratory and found to be highly effective at reducing noise – the suspended model has an NRC rating of 1.0 where 0 means no sound absorption and 1.0 is the best possible absorption.
That depends on what we mean by a “normal light” but one of the biggest reasons to choose an LED-based light fixture is to save energy. Compared to fluorescent lighting FABRICore fixtures will save a significant amount of energy and are comparable to other LED light fixtures used for general lighting.
