Image Number 7 for United States Patent #6350047.
A recessed downlight wall wash reflector assembly and method of installing the same. The reflector assembly is installable from below the plane of a ceiling into a standard mounting frame for a recessed downlight reflector having a similarly sized light exit aperture. In the preferred embodiment configured for use as a single wall washer, the reflector assembly has a downlight reflector, a window cutout in the wall of the downlight reflector and a resilient wall wash reflector attached to the reflector assembly such that it is positioned behind the window cutout. The resilient wall wash reflector has flexible sides which flex inward, allowing the reflector assembly to fit through the mounting frame opening during installation. Once the assembly has cleared the frame opening, the flexible sides return to their original shape. In an embodiment preferred for use as a comer or double (parallel) wall washer, the reflector assembly has a yoke assembly having a top plate and a leg extending between the top plate and the mounting frame. The yoke assembly may be installed through the mounting frame opening and secured to the mounting frame from below the ceiling. Wall wash reflectors may then be installed through the opening and attached to the yoke assembly. Lastly, a downlight reflector with window cutouts may be installed through the opening and attached to the yoke assembly such that the window cutouts are positioned in front of the wall wash reflectors.
