University Lighting

You wouldn’t realise what an important impact lighting has not only on the aesthetics of your university but also on the university students and staff. Light plays a key role in our productivity, as if you are working in a poorly lit space, this could result in a lack of motivation. On the other end of the scale, if it’s overly bright this could strain people’s eyes. Today we wanted to talk about how updating your lighting for your university causes a minimal negative impact. 

Lighting on workload and motivation 

Working in an area with poor lighting will make students and staff feel tired and also decrease their ability to concentrate. Multiple studies show that working in poorly lit conditions can lead to eye strain due to the eyes having to work harder. Your university wouldn’t be complete without the students and staff, and therefore we need to ensure that they have the best possible working conditions. 

Lighting on health 

A study that was carried out by the UK company Staples concluded that 40% of office workers are struggling to work in poor lighting every day. This harms not only their productivity and wellbeing. Why do you think that mental health declines so much in the winter? It’s due to the lack of light! 80% of the participants said that having good lighting in their workspace is important. This interesting statistic just shows how meaningful it is for people in a learning environment.

Lighting on aesthetics  

According to the U.K. government website, there are 154 recognized higher learning institutions that can award degrees in the United Kingdom. Therefore, wouldn’t you want to be better competition than the rest? Students and staff have chosen to teach and study there, so let’s may sure they don’t regret their decision. 

Lighting on return on investment 

Investing in your lighting will bring long-term profit to your business, and you can save money on bills and maintenance. We understand that updating your lighting is an investment which is why we offer payment plans over 3, 5, and 7 years. And to top it off, we offer a 10-year warranty on all LED lighting
