Office lights are an important aspect of the office environment. They are used to light up office spaces like general areas, workstations, lobbies, meeting rooms, and storage rooms. These lights are generally installed in ceilings. Some are installed on walls while others are placed directly at workstations for task lighting. LED office lighting can also be used outside offices – in corridors and entrances.
Specialty Office Lights
LED Panels and Troffers
LED panel-lights are designed with multiple LEDs and are not only highly luminous but also very energy-efficient. Their light has a bright, even appearance. These commercial LED ceiling lights have innovative features and a sleek look. The main purpose of their design is to enhance illumination, which is why they have excellent color rendering capabilities and high luminous efficacies.
LED panels and troffers are known for their long lifespan and are the perfect replacements for traditional and inefficient fluorescent lights that are widely used in many commercial spaces. For example, four T8 fluorescent tubes (18W each) can be replaced by a 40W LED panel-light which will cut down energy consumption by 32W. The LED panel-light will give off a higher quality of light than the T8 fluorescent tubes ever can. Panel and troffer lights are typically used in retail stores, offices, hospitals, and schools.
The importance of high-quality light in commercial spaces cannot be overemphasized. Lighting in a clothing retail store, for instance, can give a unique quality to clothing items. The lighting in a grocery store or a convenience store can also influence purchase decisions.
In the office, the light can increase concentration or adversely affect mood and amplify stress levels.
Color Changing and Dimmable LED Panels
Color changing panels allow the area to change from 3000K to 4000K and 5000K. No longer do you need to guess what will be the best color temperature. Switch to warmer light at nights to boost circadian sleep patterns for your patients and guests. These lights are also dimmable, and can be controlled by remote control. Create groups of lights easily and change the lighting instantly.
LED Magnetic Strip Retrofit Kits
These commercial LED ceiling light retrofits can easily replace fluorescent tubes and they attach to any other linear lighting fixture very easily. They also eliminate the need for ballasts and tombstones. With them, you will not need to rewire your ballasts nor need hardware or screws.
LED magnetic strip retrofit kits have a magnetic backing that attaches the strips to older light fixtures. Their drivers quickly connect to the electricity mains to power the lights.
Magnetic strip retrofit kits can be mounted on any metallic surface and their use is not limited to applications with fluorescent fixtures. They come in 2ft, 4ft, and 8ft lengths and can be placed in any space that requires light.
LED downlight-retrofits can be easily installed into existing recessed housings in the ceiling, making the transition a quick and easy process. They offer bright and focused light. LED downlights give you all the amazing benefits of LED technology including high-quality illumination, energy efficiency, a long lamp life, and a wide range of color temperatures.
The quantity of LED downlights required for a convention center depends on the beam angles of the lights. A large beam angle offers a wide spread of light while a small beam angle provides a narrow spread of light.
LED recessed lighting retrofit kits from My LED Lighting Guide can replace your recessed fluorescent lighting downlights and help you realize electricity savings of up to 75%.
What to Do When Buying Office Lighting
Careful consideration must be taken when buying office lights. This process should not be taken lightly as it directly affects the alertness and productivity of workers. Choosing the right lighting for your office space will result in high-quality illumination, the well-being of office workers, and money savings. When buying office lights, do the following:
The first step to take when buying office lighting is drawing up a plan. Lighting designers and experts can create a lighting plan that suits your particular space. It will indicate how many lights you require, where they should be installed, what sizes are appropriate, and what types you should buy.
IES Recommended Lighting Levels for Offices
|Office/Area||Recommended Foot Candles||Recommended Luxes|
|Administrative: filing, sorting mail, copying,||30||300|
|Conference and meeting rooms||30||300|
|Data processing, reading, typing, writing||30||300|
|Shipping and receiving||30||300|
|Lunch rooms, cafeterias||10||100|
|Passageways, corridors, stairs||10||100|
|Entrance halls, waiting rooms, lobbies||15||150|
Picking the right bulbs has a significant impact on the office environment. Most offices have used fluorescent lights for years. However, they not only affect the productivity, mood, and creativity of workers, they also use a lot of energy and contain dangerous chemicals.
The best bulbs for offices are LED office lights. They have the capability of imitating sunlight which has a positive impact on the behavioral and biological processes of human beings. Workers are happier and more productive when exposed to natural-looking light. The lights are also safe for the environment and very energy-efficient.
Indirect lighting occurs when fixtures project light upwards towards the ceiling or the walls and it bounces off to illuminate the whole area with even light. Direct light causes headaches and eye strain. Indirect light eliminates glare which affects worker productivity. It also creates a calm and comfortable working environment for employees. You can achieve indirect lighting by mounting LED office lights on walls or the ceiling, particularly LED flat panel lights.
The right bulb size matters when buying office lights. Large bulbs are more appropriate for a spacious office. If your office is small, consider buying smaller size bulbs. Also, if you are replacing conventional lights with LED office lights, make sure they are the right size.
Natural light is recommended for office spaces because of its effect on human mood and behavior. In offices where natural light is insufficient, it should be complemented by LED office lights because of their similarities.
If your office is designed in such a way that it cannot access any natural light, LED office lights are the best alternative. Their cool white light creates a calming effect in the office and improves the mood and behavior of workers, making them more productive.
While overhead lighting is important, ensure that you buy task lights to complement it. Task lights like desk lamps provide direct light for specific tasks at workstations, for example reading paperwork. Overhead lighting may be sufficient for other general duties but not for reading documents.
Choosing the right color temperature for your office greatly impacts the mood and behavior of workers. LED office lights come in a wide range of color temperatures. The appropriate color temperatures for an office setting are neutral to cool white, between 3500K and 5000K. Temperatures below 3500K are too yellow and will result in low worker productivity.
The color rendering index indicates how a light source causes objects to appear compared to natural light. It is a scale from 0-100. A CRI of 85 and above is considered good. LED office lights typically have a high CRI of 80 and above. In offices, it’s imperative to see objects as they would naturally appear. Fluorescent lights make the environment look dull.
When buying office lighting, look for lighting controls. Workers spend most of the day at their desks or designated workstations. This means there are areas within the office that do not require constant lighting. For example, in break rooms, stores, and restrooms, the amount of light can be conveniently controlled with motion sensors. In personal offices, dimmer switches can be used to control the lighting levels.
Some LED drivers have dimming abilities and can dim LED office lights from 100% output to 0%. This does not affect the lifespan or efficiency of the lamps, as is the case with fluorescent lamps. Photosensors can be used to detect the sufficiency of natural light and signal to the fixtures to either reduce or increase their light.
The setup of office desktops and laptops should not be ignored. Lighting sources should not be placed in such a way that they directly face electronic devices as they can cause glare. They should be positioned away from laptops or computer screens to eliminate glare.
Being mindful of the energy consumption of your office lights will save you thousands of dollars in electricity bills – and also help your company to achieve its sustainability targets. Fluorescent lamps are no longer the most energy-efficient, LEDs are. Choosing LED office lights is one of the best decisions you can make for your office. They will provide quality illumination with 75% less energy usage than conventional lighting systems.
