LED Lighting For Schools

LED Lighting is the highest trending energy saving measure within UK schools right now because it delivers the savings you seek (up to 90% when combined with intelligent controls) and the savings are instant totalling thousands of pounds a year in an average large primary school.

However, It isn’t just about the savings. The improvements LED makes within a school to the learning environment is clear to every school who have already made the upgrade. The light levels increase, and the light is more natural replicating daylight.

No more orange, dingy flickering lights which let’s face it is not good for anyone to work in, most of all our children.

When you understand all the benefits of LED Lighting you can understand why it has become the number one energy saving measure in the UK.

The majority of children and adults in today’s modern world do not get enough natural daylight.

This may not be a surprise to you but did you know not getting enough light is linked to S.A.D (Seasonal Affective Disorder)?

In fact, an intelligent LED Lighting system in your school can actually change colour through the day matching the days natural light cycle.

Start the day with a nice bright natural colour temperature and as the day draws to an end your lights will automatically change to a warmer colour temperature to help relax the mind and body.
