Healthcare Lighting

LED Lighting for
Hospitals & Healthcare Providers

Healthcare facilities typically have some of the most complex lighting requirements found in any sector. Operating theatres and examination rooms must have high light levels and good colour rendering whilst ensuring glare is not an issue for medical staff. Hygiene is of the utmost importance and fixtures must be reliable and easy to clean.

Healthcare lighting

In most healthcare facilities, gradual expansion and refurbishment over time means that there can be a wide variety of fitting and lamp specifications which can make maintenance costly and inefficient. Any LED Lighting upgrade should seek to minimise product variation as one of the primary aims. A higher colour temperature should be considered to create a bright and clean aesthetic.
