Besides for a few weeks during the summer holidays, schools are busy throughout the year, filled with students and teachers using classrooms, halls, and libraries to get their work done. Lighting is essential for this environment, as not only does it provide a brighter ambience for productivity, but it also is a safety precaution. However, for these large spaces, finding a better lighting that is cost effective seems like the ideal service - something that LEDs can easily achieve.
With some rooms in schools having no windows, providing as much natural light is essential for students and teachers. LEDs can simulate this feature, and provide bright, natural lighting so that students are able to easily concentrate in lessons. Not only does this improve productivity, but it can also create a positive ambience. For teachers, the bright lighting can also help during late night markings where lack of light can decrease work efficiency. LEDs are longer lasting so they are a good option to provide both good lighting during the day as well as night.
Along with good working environment for students and teachers, LEDs can also help improve the school’s health and safety in the long run. They are made using semiconductor materials and emit light when a current flows through. The materials are much less harmful than traditional fluorescent lighting which contains mercury, therefore health and safety regulations would improve as LED lights would be a much better sustainable alternative for the environment.
Also, the life expectancy of LEDs are much longer than conventional bulbs; therefore the replacement and maintenance of these would be significantly less. This would result in less disruption during school hours regarding lighting maintenance.
Here are several types of LED products we think might help enhance lighting in schools:
High Bays - for larger areas that need more light distribution
Panel Lighting - for areas that need more brighter lighting
LED lights improve productivity in schools with little maintenance requirement. To take a further look at the bulbs listed above for school lighting, please visit our Products page.
