HEALTHCARE LIGHTING

 
LIGHTING THAT SUPPORTS A HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT

Arguably one of the most important sectors of lighting is health care lighting. From clinics, care facilities, hospitals to rehabilitation centres the correct lighting is vital to ensure not merely the illumination of rooms but in creating a lighting environment focused around the patient and clinician. Balancing all the requirements of health care lighting can be a difficult task however our lighting design team highly technical astute with the breadth of knowledge and design ability to ensure optimum lighting conditions.

In addition to improving health care spaces our LED lighting will also have the benefits of cost saving, lower maintenance , carbon and energy saving. Using specifically designed lighting solutions, we are able to meet the differing demands on the space dictated by lighting requirements, infection control, user experience and sustainability and deliver high quality, low energy solutions.

Patients and healthcare workers
The effect of lighting on human health and performance levels can often be mistakenly overlooked. We are experts in creating a humancentric lighting environment that will blend the needs of both healthcare professionals and patients alike. 

Reduce Costs
Energy costs continue to be a major challenge for hospitals and healthcare providers due to the ever increasing energy costs. This task can be made easier by switching to LED lighting, energy consumption can be reduced by up to 50% with LED lighting and up to 80% through lighting controls to help to comply with energy legislation and support sustainability targets. Typically lighting can account for over 35% of the electricity used in an average hospital* which is why a well thought out lighting scheme with energy and cost calculations is essential for any healthcare provider.

Help the environment
The NHS and the majority of the healthcare industry have a commitment to a Sustainable Future, with climate change being one of the greatest threats to our health and wellbeing they understand that they have a key role to play in reducing carbon emissions and supporting local people to adapt to climate change. Many healthcare organisations have developed sustainability plans to take a more positive approach, seeking opportunities to make the healthcare services sustainable for generations to come.
