Did you know that lighting in many work places is rarely sufficient. An office with fluorscent lighting generally gets about 300 Lux. (According to Wikipedia, Lux is the ‘International System of Units’ unit for lighting.) Most people don’t realise that the recommended minimum is 450 Lux.
Desk lighting is an excellent way of getting that extra light, why don’t you click here and see our extensive range.
With good working light the productivity can increase, as it is easier to concentrate, and you also make less errors and feel more awake. A person aged 45 needs approximately twice as much light to work comfortably and without visual tiredness, compared to a that of a 20 year old.
There are four kinds of light source which we can supply and I have listed them below.
Incandescent Lighting – this offers an advantage of the colour of the light they produce and provides a warm feeling to a room. They have an approximate life span of 1000 hours.
Halogen Lighting - this produces an attractive light which resembles sunlight. It gives approximately five times as much light as an incandescent bulb and its life span is about twice as much as incandescent bulbs.
Fluoroscent Lighting - this is a very efficient light source as it has a low power consumption and a life span of about 8000 hours.
LED (Light Emitting Diodes) Lighting - this has an approximate life span of 100,000 hours! You won’t have to change the bulbs for a very long time!
