Lighting design is both an art and a science. Architectural spaces thrive with the right mix of lighting, and recessed ceiling lights play a major role in creating attractive and pleasant environments. With the right lights, rooms are highlighted by their best features.
The brand-new Woolworths Distribution Centre in Montague Gardens, Cape Town is nearing completion. LEDwise supplied almost 500 of their 200W Linear High Bay Lights through distributor Province Lighting. Distribution Centres need lighting solutions that precisely illuminate very large areas or very narrow areas from a great height, and are durable enough to withstand environment conditions such as fluctuating temperatures and corrosive atmospheres.
LEDwise offers a range of high quality LED Light Lines. Designated the LL-A-24-25, LL-A-24-33, and LL-A-24-14 are available in power levels of 3.2, 12 and 25 W/m respectively. Suitable for interior and exterior use they are ideal for use in cove lighting, façade illumination, shop fitting, shelf lighting, cabinet illumination, and signage.
Recessed ceiling lights are one of the most popular modern lighting options for hotels, offices, shops, restaurants, reception counters and display cabinets. Also referred to as downlights, they provide ambient lighting, task lighting, or accent lighting while remaining unobtrusive because the lights are recessed into the ceiling.
Which light metrics should you specify for your application? Our previous article explained the various LED colour metrics commonly used in the industry. This article now describes which metrics should be specified for different applications. CCT (Correlated Colour Temperature) and CRI (Colour Rendering Index) are traditionally the standard industry terms used to specify the light produced by a luminaire. Ever improving LED technology, however, together with more discerning and demanding consumers, has resulted in LED manufacturers creating many customised and optimised outputs.
