What types of optics are available with your office lights?
Optics, also known as range-of-view, is available in direct downlighting, indirect uplighting as well as wall wash lighting.
What’s the difference between dynamic white color temperature and tunable white?
Dynamic white color temperatures range from 2,700 Kelvin to 5,000 Kelvin and cannot be easily changed after light fixtures are installed. Tunable white ranges from 2,000 Kelvin to 6,500 Kelvin. These temperatures can be changed using a wireless remote or wall control at the project site.
What is a color-selectable switch?
This term describes a selection of lighting products available with a pre- installed switch located on the lighting fixture. This feature allows the user to choose from among a small selection of color temperatures. The feature is less expensive than tunable white technology.
What is the difference between a single run and a continuous run?
Our selection of lighting products are available to be ordered either as a single item or as a longer item comprised of smaller pieces creating a continuous run.
What is the difference between a recessed T-bar grid and a recessed screw-slot, ceiling-type grid?
T-bar refers to the standard low-cost ceiling grid system. The screw-slot system offers a center reveal, making it more aesthetically or architecturally appealing.
What’s the best type of lighting for an office or workspace with no windows?
Other than striving to balance task and general lighting, color tuning systems are ideal. Color tuning allows users to control the color of light any time after installation, affording the ability to attune lighting to individual preferences or specific application needs. For example, the user can set the LED lighting fixture to follow the sun’s natural east-to-west trajectory throughout the day or choose from standard presets (i.e., dawn, morning, midday, afternoon and evening).
The effects of light on human biology and psychology are well-known. Certain studies suggest that natural lighting leads to happier workers, which tends to reduce illness and absenteeism and, because improved lighting yields increased productivity, better relationships, service and satisfaction and higher profits. So, besides striking a balance of task and general lighting, to overcome a lack of natural light in a given space — thus maximizing the impact of natural lighting on human biology — today’s lighting designers install LED color tuning systems. Always look for design that primarily accounts for human nature.
What’s the best lighting fixture for reading?
Task lighting, such as a directional desk or floor lamp, is ideal for reading. In commercial applications, general lighting can be sufficient if the needed footcandles (fc) of lighting for the type of activity i.e., reading, is correctly determined by the project designer and end user (read our footcandle guide for details). Figuring appropriate light levels for the uniformed workspace, according to the guide, means extending lighting power density (LPD) values from lighting a public area using 2 fc to 5 fc, to lighting visual task areas of extremely low contrast and small size using 1,000 fc to 2,000 fc.
What’s the best product for lighting the conference table or area?
The standard approach among designers for conference room lighting is general lighting combined with accent lighting. An architectural pendant may, for instance, be used over a table, with wall sconces and general lighting, such as can lights or troffers, also providing surrounding illumination.
