LEE Filters' Glass Dichroic filters are manufactured by the vacuum deposition of layers of thin metal films onto a substrate of Borofloat Glass (better thermal characteristics than tempered soda-lime glass).
These lightweight aluminium frames have an innovative silicone gasket that completely surrounds the glass, providing protection from both mechanical and thermal shock. A safety mesh can be added where required.
The Dichroic Glass palette was developed in collaboration with lighting designers and provides a range of consistent, repeatable colours.
The LEE range of Framed Dichroic Glass Technical Filters has been developed to convert and manipulate light sources with a high degree of accuracy and stability. A full range of daylight, tungsten and fluorescent conversions, plus neutral densities, are available.
All our Framed Dichroic Glass filters are also available with a frosted finish for diffuse light effects.
These filters are colour-coated on one side by vacuum deposition of metal film, and diffuse textured on the other side. This creates a frost that's very similar to LEE 251 Quarter White Diffusion, when the frosted side is placed on the fixture outwards, away from the lamp.
The LEE Filters Frosted Dichroic Glass Filters use the same 3.3mm thick high temperature Borofloat Glass as the unfrosted dichroics.
