Is it any surprise that light affects even the most minor aspects of our lives? With this in mind, let’s take a look at the ways in which light can be used to enhance our productivity!
The “color” of the light in a room is measured in temperature, from warm to cool. Warm lighting creates a sense of comfort and relaxation, like the soft glow from a crackling fireplace. Mid-temperature light is welcoming, but still promotes alertness - ideal for a conference room or shared space.
Finally, cold lighting improves alertness, mood, and productivity, and lowers melatonin which reduces fatigue. Cold lighting is like a cup of coffee for the brain! In fact, it has been proven that blue light helps workers stay focused for longer periods of time. In a perfect world, we’d all have sun-drenched offices to work from, but with the addition of color-changing LED lights, you can turn any office into your ideal workspace!
Let’s Talk Lights!
We all know LED lights are better for the environment, last longer, and are brighter than traditional bulbs. But how do LED lights even work?
LED stands for Light Emitting Semiconductor. The most important part to understand is what a semiconductor is; most materials are either a conductor, which allows electricity to pass through, or an insulator, which does not. Some insulators can be charged or “doped” with electricity, thus creating a semiconductive piece of material. This semiconductor is used to make a diode, which in turn creates light.
Unlike other types of bulbs, LEDs do not rely on the creation of heat to produce light. In fact, LEDs produce very little heat. As more types of LED lights become readily accessible, people will begin to make the switch - not only for t...
Over the past decade, LED lighting has become increasingly popular. With a societal increase in environmental awareness, a desire for cost-effective solutions, and a wave of self-care advocate media, people are demanding better lighting at a better cost.
Smart & Simple
The TAC Architectural LED Troffer is an economical lighting solution for commercial, educational, medical, and retail applications where general-purpose ambient lighting is required. With its contemporary center lens design, TAC provides a soft natural glow and even illumination that minimizes glare. The CCT Selectable design allows for easy adjustment to 3500K, 4000K, or 5000K. Available in 1x4, 2x2, or 2x4 configurations, the TAC is an easy-to-install upgrade from linear fluorescent lighting to a long-lasting, energy-efficient LED solution
An external switch allows easy CCT Selection: 3500K, 4000K or 5000K
