Light Shade is an illumination cover made from Nittobo's glass cloth. Glass cloth, which excels in translucency, wraps a room in soft light, creating a unique space with a relaxed atmosphere.
The unique effects of lighting not seen in previous ceiling lighting that uses louver ceiling or acrylic boards further enhance all interior decorations, including stores and halls. We hope you will try this product.
Light Shade displays its features to the full because Nittobo takes responsibility for its installation.

Nittobo is a pioneer in glass fiber manufacture. In 1938, the company manufactured glass fiber on a commercial basis earlier than anyone else in the world, and since then, it has continued to manufacture products in various fields by optimizing the properties of glass fiber.
Light Shade is what Nittobo calls a "next-generation product" that uses glass fiber as raw material. It consists of ultra-thin, half-transparent glass cloth that moderately transmits light.
* Light Shade is a nonflammable composite material that combines glass cloth mentioned above and fluororesin (nonflammability certification number: NM-0152).
Glass fiber yarn used as raw material
Light Shade does not stain easily, and the secret lies in its structure.
First, glass cloth is produced by weaving thin glass fibers. Then, the glass cloth is impregnated with fluororesin. Furthermore, the surface of fluororesin-impregnated glass cloth is laminated with flat and smooth fluororesin film.
The double effects of fluororesin make it difficult for Light Shade to become yellowish and stain. They also make it easy to wipe off stain on Light Shade.
The benefit of fluororesin is that it does not stain easily.
Light Shade allows users to choose from between the two types of glass cloth according to their interior design and lighting plan.
● Light Shade 45
Light Shade 45 is glass cloth with total light transmittance of 45%. It excels in light diffusion and creates a space with soft light.
● Mesh Shade
Mesh Shade is woven mesh of glass cloth. It produces a bright space that reminds one of sunshine filtering through tree branches.
