Standing out

from the crowd



From primary schools to universities, our lighting systems create environments that support educational objectives. Providing students the best environment to study. Lighting supports higher productivity and better study results, by improved concentration, keeping students alert and making the learning surroundings more inviting and comfortable.

Enhancing facilities


In today's competitive environment, students want to know they're getting the best. Effective lighting can help reinforce your brand and strengthen your appeal to students, parents and business partners alike. On the campus you can create attractive and safe outdoor places with urban lighting where students socialize and relax.

With light you can also easily transform any interior space through the use of different color temperatures and light levels to enhance students, tutors and visitors. Create an ambiance or mood that improve productivity, creativity and social networks, within the student population or even attract commercial interest by offering a high-tech, attractive and flexible space for hire.

Reducing your costs


Lighting accounts for around 23% of a university's energy costs, but it's difficult to know how much energy is being consumed by area and how to measure it. Installing a lighting management system allows you to see and monitor lighting energy consumption by area and then see how this consumption could be reduced. You can then ascertain if having the lighting on permanently is necessary, or whether presence detection sensors, timed switching, dimming or daylight harvesting strategies could be utilised to effect - to drive down the energy consumption and cost.



Universities who can demonstrate that they have a strong sustainability policy forming part of their corporate and social responsibility policy (CSR) can use this to give transparency and visibility to potential investors or students, increase access to research funding , enhance stakeholder relations and credibility and protect and strengthen their identity and brand image. Updating lighting to LED can help address a University's Carbon Reduction Commitment, Energy Performance and Building Directive, Energy Services Directive and BREEAM Rating.



Provide safe indoor and outdoor spaces for everyone on the school or campus. Safety is very important for the students to feel comfortable and at home, while improving performance results and increasing a welcoming environment for students and teachers. Safety is important for every facility or site manager. Through flexible adjustments of light levels that fits every situation on the facility both indoor and outdoor, you can significantly enhance security for all students.
