€co²-LED for schools
During the day, many activities take place in a classroom. Therefore, it is of great importance to have high expectations of lighting quality. The sunlight is the most ideal light in terms of both light intensity and light quality (colour). This is not true for artificial light which mimics actual daylight. Students, pupils and teachers will benefit from appropriate lighting, which helps to create the optimal learning environment to bring out the best in all of them.
Light has a beneficial biological effect on the body, it stimulates mood and creativity, and it enhances emotional wellbeing. We become aware of this effect when the sun reappears against a clear blue sky after a couple of cloudy days.
Appropriate lighting is proven to enhance visual performance and learning abilities of both teaching staff and students. It contributes to their emotional wellbeing, and it is less tiring. It also reduces the absenteeism. Especially for visually demanding work such as writing, reading or computer work, appropriate lighting is of the utmost importance. The graphs below show some scientific results.
The most common type of school lighting is fluorescent lighting. Compared to other lighting fluorescent lighting is quite CO² - and energy-efficient, but it produces a poor light quality, it contains hazardous substances and it emits radiation. In addition, the lifespan is not very long.
€co²-LED lighting has none of these disadvantages. Well on the contrary, our score on these levels is very elevated.
- €co²-LED lamps provide a flicker-free light. This has a major impact on visual performance, concentration and fatigue.
- €co²-LED lamps have a lifespan of 60,000 hours. Traditional fluorescent lamps, however, only last for 12,000 hours. This will make you save considerably on maintenance as €co²-LED lamps require up to 5 times less replacements.
- €co²-LED lamps have very low power consumption making you save up to 60% saving on energy costs and CO² emissions. Through the EU climate plan, the European Union aims at reducing the emissions of CO² and energy consumption with 20% by the year 2020. Be one step ahead with climate-friendly classrooms that reduce energy usage and your carbon footprint!
The long lifespan, the excellent light quality, the low energy usage and carbon emission make €co²-LED lighting your best choice.
