Lighting For Educational Institutions

Educational institutions are hard at work building our future leaders. They safeguard one of the most important parts of our society, our intellect. Educational institutions help grow technology, drive advancements in all aspects of society as well as help us learn from our mistakes.

However, within that realm also falls ever-increasing costs. Over the last couple of decades it has become increasingly expensive to operate these institutions. This can put a huge burden on the institution, the taxpayer and families involved.

How do we help?

Our LED lighting solutions are  essential for Educational foundations and institutions to help regain control over some of the costs involved with operation. At the same time that they are growing our future leaders, we are focused on fiscal responsibility as well as environmental conservation. Our goal is to help conserve the planet the institutions are building leaders to run.

Be that as it may, is it truly justified?

Poor lighting conditions add to myopia. Experts agree that the glare that traditional, bright light bulbs make diminishes the capacity to learn as well as increases anxiety and tension levels.

As well, with the sheer amount of time educators and students spend in schools, we should be concerned with their health. Studies show that traditional fluorescent lighting used in most educational institutions can cause:

  • Migraines
  • Eye strain
  • Problems sleeping, due to melatonin suppression
  • Symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder or depression
  • Endocrine disruption and poor immune systems
  • Female hormonal/menstrual cycle disruption
  • Increases in breast cancer rates and tumor formation
  • Stress/Anxiety, due to cortisol suppression
  • Sexual development/maturation disruption
  • Obesity
  • Agoraphobia (anxiety disorder)

Traditional lighting impedes our dreams of a well-educated and health-conscious society.

LED lighting and retrofitting are more than just about saving money.

Sports offices, walkways, auto parks and veneers will be completely enlightened, leaving no dim corners for potential gatecrashers and vandals.

CCTV cameras won’t gleam as they did before (because of their response to glaring light).

This is especially critical for children who are young and in their growing years, as it permits the growth of their intellectual capacities more successfully.

Look at these statistics:

  • 23% of the typical college spending goes to lighting costs
  • LEDs immediately begin paying for themselves, and pay off completely in under 3 years (Often as little as 18 months), which demonstrates an exceptional ROI
  • Researchers have found that LED lighting helps make grounds more secure by illuminating dark spots and enhancing CCTV clarity
