Reflectors and nets - for any application

LE-LOUCHE (051-LL)

The two-ply carrier materials structures by adding e.g. leaves, shadow/light structures, just as you desire. Also for large-scale use in sunlight or with spotlights.

Colour: WHITE neutral without optical brightener.

The SUNBOUNCE LE-LOUCHE netting and fabric combination and the way it is processed are unique to the field. Hollywood has been using the so-called cuculoris for many years. It is a sheet of metal with a certain pattern sawed out of it, e.g. to cast a shadow from the spotlight such that it looks like light and shadow would appear under a tree. But the metal panels have a limited size. They are usually no bigger than 100 x 100 cm. With sunlight, the concept works only for small objects. The standardized pattern is defined by the cut-outs, so it can easily be recognized as artificial. A separate cuculoris has to be created for each pattern. The SUNBOUNCE LE-LOUCHE system for structured shadows applies a completely different concept and meets just about any requirements.

SUNBOUNCE's LE-LOUCHE system allows you to create unique combinations of light and shadow – even with different focal planes.

The LE-LOUCHE system consists of a two-layer shell made of special, very fine yet sturdy mesh (absorbs only about 1/3 of the light through the aperture per layer). The shell can hold all kinds of materials used to create effects, like leaves, bits of paper or fabric, and thin cloth. Nothing blows away or slips out of place. Large openings along the edge allow you to easily reach in and arrange the items to create the structured light that you want. The different levels of the shell and the filling (including 3D items) result in a completely natural light-shadow transition without sharp edges. For example, you could create the sense of filming under trees in Tuscany. And you can do it on a barren beach or in a studio. The original LE-LOUCHE includes a clear foil with leaves printed on it.

To prevent the arrangements from slipping when wind or other movement occurs, the creation can be secured to the two mesh layers with a commercial tag gun and plastic anchors. You are familiar with these because it is the same thing used to attach the price tag to your new shirt. To change the pattern, just cut the fine fasteners and create a new design. The tag gun and the proper fasteners are available as accessories from SUNBOUNCE.

Application area:Diffuser to produce structures
Max. Width seamless:170cm/ 67“
Fire Protection:Do not use near fire or heat sources
Color:WHITE
Color temperature:Neutral without optical brighteners
Character:Softens and gives structure
Structural change:

Reduces the light / shadow contrast

Shadows are reduced moderately.

Only the use of light blockers deliver deep shade structures.

Light output*:

Loss of light on the LE-LOUCHE system without filling -1/2 f-stop*.

With variable structure depending on the filling material.

Special feature:Appropriate for all daylight or artificial cold light

* Depending on the distance between the diffuser and the model.

Law of physics: A diffuser acts as an independent light source. The light decreases by square of the distance.

*Light cannot be enhanced without a physical loss of light.

How is the loss of light quantified?

At SUNBOUNCE we measure applying the only truly conclusive method: Directly behind the fabric, since the fabric causes a new light source.
