LED Lighting for Schools and the Education Sector

Upgrading lighting from traditional to LED is the easiest way for schools to cut their energy levels, reduce carbon footprint and make instant savings on electricity bills. The energy required to power LED lighting is much less compared to traditional fluorescent bulbs. LED lighting converts almost 90% of its energy to lighting, whereas traditional bulbs only convert around 10% to light, and the rest is heat.

The savings made as a result of upgrading to LED lighting would make a huge difference to an organisation, like a school. However, this is not the only benefit, you can completely transform the learning environment for both students and teachers just by changing the lighting to LED. No flicker or discolouration and less maintenance required resulting in very little disruption in classrooms or offices. LED lighting lasts on average over 6 times longer than traditional bulbs.

LED lighting benefits:

  • Different colour temperatures are available to meet all requirements.
  • Correct lux levels met for each environment.
  • Less harmful materials than traditional lighting which contains mercury.
  • Improve students mood and performances
  • Dimmable options available for auditoriums or classrooms.
  • Sensor options available meaning only occupied areas are active.
