From primary schools to colleges & universities, educational facilities around the world are still using old technology fluorescent and HID lighting. The flickering is known to cause dizziness, headaches and nausea, but that’s not even the worst of it.
Fluorescent lighting contains hazardous Mercury and inert gases (read more). They also give off harmful Ultraviolet (UV) light which, through prolonged exposure, can adversely affect a student’s ability to focus and concentrate—even damage their vision. With LED lighting, you don’t have to worry about any of that.
Due to the sustainability factor LEDs provide there is no need to worry about calling in maintenance to constantly replace lights—no more disrupting a classroom or having to get a lift for gymnasium lights. The increased optical acuity with LED lighting also provides increased security on campus grounds and therefore, a feeling of security and safety for everyone. Best of all, LED lighting provides a better learning environment and quality of life for students, teachers / professors, staff, and visitors alike!
