Sentry Electric Presents Best Lighting For Office Productivity
Natural Lighting: The first and really the best type of light for a building is to use natural light. If you can get offices and other areas of the business around the windows the better the light will be in that space. You want to make sure that the windows are not being obstructed by anything so that the light is able to spill into the space. Although this is a great option there is not always the option available to you. There are other options that you can take when giving light to your commercial space.
Overhead Lighting: When you want to give a space some brightness then overhead lighting is the way to go. The overhead lights are a great option for room or area that is overall dark. You want to make sure that you layout out lights so that there is enough to brighten the room. The problem is that these types of lights will add shadows to the room and that can be hard on a person that is trying to work in that area. You also want to avoid using fluorescent lights in areas that you know employees will need to work on computer. These types of lights are hard on the eyes and can cause headaches and eye strain. Adding more light in addition to the overhead light can correct the problem.
Task Lights: The way to add a focused amount of light to a space that someone is working on is using a task light. These are usually desk lamps that can be set on the desk area. The person that is working on that area can use the lamp when they need it and turn it off when they are not. You can be sure that there is enough outlets in the room so that the extra light can be plugged in. The lamps are a great way to also save some money on energy costs.
