“Lighting is and always has been an important factor in designing and operating schools” [James Benya, 2001].
With energy efficiency, maintenance costs and quality of light to consider it is critical to select the correct artificial light sources while maximizing and blending daylighting options. Lighting and ambient room design has been shown to be an important factor in learning and keeping kids focused and on-task. This can often be achieved with cool white (‘daylight’) colour temperatures which keep students more alert and helps them to concentrate better. Additionally, providing light sources with high colour rendering can improve learning as well as reduce eye strain. Quality lighting and signage within the school can also improve safety and security.
Nanoco’s CFQD® Quantum Dot films enable highly efficient, high CRI light fixtures with excellent uniformity and low glare, and are available to fit a number of standard fixture formats (troffers, downlights, linear). Nanoco sales and engineering teams are available to discuss customised solutions in addition to standard products.
