Premium-Quality Fresnel Lenses from Knight Optical

Date Announced: 16 Oct 2019

Knight Optical’s Fresnel Lenses are an industry-favourite for many engineers and R&D professionals specifying components for magnification and the collection of light. Known for their first-class quality, durability and supreme reliability, our wide range of Fresnel Lenses meet a diverse variety of specifications. 

 Available in a range of material types, such as PMMA Acrylic and Cylindrical, Lenticular and Reverse Configuration (for solar concentrators), our Fresnel Lenses are manufactured to the highest possible quality, and are formed of interspaced, concentric ‘steps’, with each ‘step’ acting as a refractive surface – much like a prism.

 Our stock range includes PMMA Acrylic material options in two grades – ‘Precision’ – a premium-quality range with tighter tolerances and improved surface quality – and a standard ‘Fresnel’ grade. Alongside our wide range of stock PMMA Acrylic Fresnel Lenses, we also offer custom-made optics across our entire Fresnel range – including PMMA Acrylic and Cylindrical, Lenticular and Reverse Configuration.
