Office electricity bills are a major contribution towards operational costs, especially since office hours are constantly increasing and lighting is a necessity that cannot be compromised on. In order to facilitate these trends, business owners and management are trying to create a better experience for their staff. Part of this improved experience is the quality of the lighting used to create the ambience and aesthetic of the work space.
In order to meet these needs, we have developed LED lighting solutions which use specific, premium lighting products for office spaces. Our LED lighting solutions for offices and work spaces ensure that the office is looking it’s best, staff productivity is increased and electricity costs are reduced.
Lighting in the workplace environment has a large and significant impact on staff productivity. Although it may not be obvious at first glance, the type and strength of the lighting in a workplace greatly affects the physiological aspect of employees. There is a strong relationship between daylight exposure in the workplace and a person’s sleep, activity and quality of life. Windows are the most important determinant of the occupants’ level of satisfaction with a building according to a study conducted in Britain and published in “The Responsible Workplace” (Jensen, 2015). In other words, natural light is very important to not only how well one can see, but also to one’s mood, behavior, and hormonal balance. Natural light can lead to increased happiness in workers, less absenteeism, and fewer illnesses from satisfaction and increased productivity among workers.
A company can spend tens of thousands of dollars renovating their office space in order to maximise on natural light exposure, but the cost, and daunting nature of this undertaking, in most cases is too great. One solution is to change the existing workplace lights with those that are closer to natural sunlight ; LED lights with high CRI. OptiTech products, which have a CRI of over 85, help bring your workplaces closer to the quality of natural sunlight.
