Spending many a day and night at your desk? Has your line of work made the office become more familiar a dwelling than your domestic? Then the mode of lighting in your professional quarters may be more a pressing matter than usual. Bright and illuminated, tinged and radiant or the duskiness of an evening gloom, lighting can transform your office from a room that is furnished with the light of a get-on-task brilliance, to a kick-back-and-take-a-break semidarkness.
So, what are the different types of lighting available and how can they impact productivity in your station of work?
1. The Trusty Desk Lamp
Not owning or making use of a desk lamp should be a federal offence. It is a must have item for every desk-bound nine-to-fiver and every table lamp owner will swear by its mastery. Many respond to touch and a simple stroke will flood your desk with a rich light. They range from classic to modern in design and as well as providing a spot of soft lighting, they offer decorative benefits too. It is no wonder that they are one of the most popular lighting options available on today’s market.
2. Modular Ceiling Lighting
Modular fittings are lighting panels that are fixed into the suspended ceiling grid in an analogous manner to ceiling tiles and are the most commonly used lighting fixtures found to adorn office ceilings. They exude an air of professionalism and are designed to boost performance by creating an engaging atmosphere and consequently enhancing employee efficiency.
3. Dawn To Dusk Sensor Lights
The ongoing battle of saving money without scrimping on efficiency has brought to light innovative sensor light bulbsthat turn on as night falls and turn off with sunrise. Not only do they use less electricity, but they provide a security solution and their automated function is more convenient, with no need for manual switching on and off. They use a photosensitive sensor that detects light levels and is a viable solution for lighting at night.
Sensor lights do not compromise on brightness levels with the brightness being equivalent to that demonstrated by the traditional light bulb. They are usually easily installed and may incorporate timers allowing you to alter the time the light remains switched on. New designs combine the benefits of motion activated sensors, remaining switched on at 20% of the lamp wattage and brightening to full brilliance when the sensor detects movement.
Lighting is an important feature in the office and sensor lights are increasingly becoming the go-to for lighting needs. They are effective not only for allowing you to see the task at hand but creating a positive ambience, as well as providing security benefits and functioning as an energy-saving appliance.
