Filters for LED Enhancement, Correction and Softening

OPTI-FLECS lighting control filters provide cost-effective, easy-to-use solutions to enhance the beam-quality of any LED source. A common description of LED light is that it looks "sterile" or "flat" and that illuminated objects or people appear “sallow” or “lifeless.” This is because white LEDs often contain an overabundance of green light-energy and lack the critical parts of the spectrum that make light attractive on skin tones and architectural surfaces. The OPTI-FLECS range of semi-rigid filters contains color filters that target specific spectral spikes and output anomalies found in LED fixtures, and several unique diffusion options for softening the oftentimes harsh, directional beam produced by LED lights.

OPTI-FLECS in Architectural Installations

The OPTI-FLECS range of LED filters is an excellent choice to aid in the design of an architectural project. OPTI-FLECS can be used to enhance skin tones of customers in a retail store, balance the output of LEDs with other sources or reduce glare and hotspots inside a display case.

OPTI-FLECS for Image Capture

The low-heat feature of LED lights means that gel is not an expendable anymore - it's an accessory, just like a scrim or a barn-door. OPTI-FLECS is a semi-rigid filter that offers cinematographers, gaffers, lighting directors and photographers a durable, reusable solution for correcting the problematic color-rendering aspects of LED lighting. The CTO's, Minus Greens and Neutral Densities are excellent tools for balancing LED lights - notably the green spike that traditional Minus Greens don't properly address. The diffusions and tints are perfect for softening the harsh output of an LED source and for enhancing the skin tones of on-camera talent.

Custom Colors and Sizes

OPTI-FLECS filters can be manufactured to custom specifications for large installations and OEM applications. Using the polyester color and diffusion filters found in E-Colour+, Cinegel and GamColor – designers and technicians have an abundance of color, correction and diffusion filter options to choose from. Custom OPTI-FLECS orders require a minimum of 100 square feet of 48" wide filter, which typically yields approximately (10-12) 51"x25" sheets (quantities may vary).

Note: This product is intended for use on low-heat LED sources only, and is not suitable for use on high heat fixtures. OPTI-FLECS filters are designed to be installed externally and are not intended to be used as an internal fixture component where higher operating temperatures may be present.

Product Installation:

For best results, install the filter as far away from the emitter as possible.

Install diffusions with the smooth side facing the source.

Care & Maintenance:

Color filters and Powder Frost may be cleaned with mild soap and clean water.

Other diffusions may be cleaned with mild soap and clean water on the smooth side.
