HOW TO EFFICIENTLY LIGHT UP YOUR OFFICE
When it comes to illuminating your workspace, it makes sense to make it as efficient & effective as possible. Whether it be in a home or corporate environment, we have all the office lighting solutions you could need.
HOW DOES LIGHTING AFFECT PRODUCTIVITY? What many employers don’t realize when it comes to setting up their offices is how important having the correct lighting truly is. There are many vital elements to consider to boost productivity levels, lower overhead costs and to keep up with your corporate image.
The way an office is set out & also illuminated, have substantial impacts on performance levels at work. Even in a home office, correctly illuminating the workspace will significantly improve your concentration levels, helping you to get more out of the day!
Switching to LED lights is the best option for this – for two reasons. Firstly, they run on a DC instead of an AC, eradicating the flickering that is difficult for the human eye to perceive. That is why conventional lighting has been known to exacerbate headaches and migraines, and also be at fault for common ailments such as eyestrain. Over time, this can demotivate staff, causing employers to spend more should they require time off from these issues.
On top of this, LED lights also have a high CRI, essentially meaning that they closely replicate natural light. That allows them to boast a range of color temperatures, from warm white (3000K) all the way to cool white (6000K). Typically used in offices is cold white (6000K) as it is more of a clean & clinical looking light - which will stimulate the ipRGC receptors in your eyes. In turn, this will give everyone a boost in energy to maximize their capabilities.
Keeping your costs to a minimum is vital for any business to be successful in the long run. Even if you work from home, it’s best to keep those energy bills down!
LED lights can save you anywhere up to 90% on your lighting bills, dramatically reducing your annual costs. Due to having such low power consumption, it will give you a greener workspace & will reduce your carbon footprint as a result.
Eventually, the savings you make from making the switch to LED lights will leave you with a larger budget to spend elsewhere!
TYPES OF LIGHTING
Office lighting tends to be somewhat different compared to how you would illuminate your home, for example. That is because it has more of a commercial & discreet appearance. Many offices opt for panel lights like our LED Panel Light-2x2ft - 2x4ft - 5000K-DLC/UL.
Using 3400 lumens of light, it is perfect for illuminating large spaces and uses a minor 40W of power to do so. That is approximately 10 X lower than the halogen equivalent!
There are also other options including Batten Lights & Tube Lights, depending on your wants and needs for space you’re brightening. Batten lighting, for example, is a retrofit fixture that has a wide light distribution to brighten the area ergonomically.
Home offices, on the other hand, do not tend to use commercial fittings; in fact, we recommend implementing cool white bulbs. We even have suitable desk lamps to aid your work. They have adjustable necks allowing you to direct the light, and in some cases, clips that fit directly onto your desk.
