DMF Lighting

DMF Lighting is a downlight company based out of California. They have based their company similarly to a tech company with the use of parts and pieces that can be combined to make multiple downlight styles. One of the main highlights of their downlights is that for the lower outputs, the driver is integral to the LED module. They have a standard CRI of 93 across the board. They also use the same chip in both their low and high output fixtures so the color matches throughout. The distribution of light is a basic blob of light with a 120° beamspread and a smooth beam and no harsh edge.

The OneFrame fixture is a unique downlight in that it is equipped with a small housing which is IC rated and fireproof for up to 2 hours.

There are a series of different trim options to choose from starting with a bevel round and bevel square trim. The square aperture has an 18% light loss due to the design of the module relative to the opening. DMF also has developed a set of acrylic dropped lens trims; one with a frosted ring and frosted center, a frosted ring and clear center, and a frosted ring and open center. We took a look at the acrylic ring and it did a nice job of pushing light up higher on the wall. It would be a good option for corridors if there was an interest for a decorative element.

The original downlights that DMF started with have a 4" aperture, however, they are coming out with a 2" aperture version with a remodel housing. It is wet listed and offers 13°, 25° and 40° optics.

The standard downlights are reasonably priced with the low output coming out less than $100 DN. It would be a good option for corridors and closets or other projects with budget restraints looking for a basic downlight. Because the components are all able to work together depending on the configuration, DMF stocks their parts in their warehouse in California and are able to ship within 24-48 hours.
