Best Practice Advice
Flexible Lighting Design
The lighting design must be flexible as most therapy activities do not require a specific room layout or equipment and these spaces are often multi-functional.
Natural light has a positive effect on stress and feelings of anxiety and can be helpful in a counselling setting. We have developed lighting, to support daylight and help regulate our circadian rhythm.
Tuneable White Lighting
Tuneable white lighting can be raised to a cool colour temperature to replicate daylight providing an energy boost or lowered to a warm colour temperature to create a restful environment.
Using a lighting control system can improve the quality of illumination as well as reduce energy consumption. Control systems allow the use of light in the required place, at the right time and in the optimum quantity. At Designplan we can provide control solutions for traditional switched applications and standalone luminaire operation, through to full networked systems utilising the DALI protocol.
We are pleased to announce that we now supply antibacterial paint to improve our customers infection control measures further still. Our optional antibacterial powder coatings reduce the growth of harmful bacteria on a painted luminaire surface used in a secure health facility.
