Park Lighting Changes to LED

I watched them changing the park lighting to LED.

Public lighting matters. It’s not just for safety. The right lighting makes an area more appealing. Public lighting can combine form with function for aesthetically pleasing lighting that invites you into the park.

Many cities are investing in changing their lighting over to LED. The economics just make sense now.

Desk Lamps

The right light makes all the difference in your home office. You need a desk lamp that is truly adjustable. When you adjust it, it should stay adjusted! You need to be able to position it to easily see your papers without glare and without reflections from your monitor. You should be able to adjust it without burning yourself. The light should not shine directly into your eyes. The right lighting in your office can keep you from getting headaches and eyestrain.

Whether you have vision problems or not, good light is essential. As your eyes age or if you are faced with vision issues, lighting becomes even more important.

“Traditional table lamps with lampshades do not provide a way to direct light to where you need it to read or perform tasks such as writing checks or any other close work. When you select a lamp for a table or desk, choose one with a flexible gooseneck than can be turned to direct light where it’s needed.”
Macular Disease: Practical Strategies for Living with Vision Loss by Peggy R. Wolfe

There are so many choices available, but all good desk lamps have the same qualities! In Oliver Heath’s Home Book he says on desk lamps; “There are a massive variety on offer, but these lights generally have a solid base and a stand with the light bulb shielded or directed by the shade. It’s important to pick for your work area a light with a shade that will prevent glare from the light bulb, which can potentially create eye strain. Try to choose a desk lamp with some level of flexibility, such as an angle-poise lamp, which allows you to manipulate it into a variety of positions to best suit the task you are carrying out – for example, to shine light onto a surface or onto a wall to balance the light levels.”

You don’t have to give up style and fun for efficiency. There are a lot of options available to fit any style.

Bruck Lighting’s New GalaxZ Simplifies Daylight Harvesting

Bruck Lighting’s New GalaxZ Simplifies Daylight Harvesting

Daylight Harvesting means using as much natural sunlight as possible instead of electric lighting. Of course this uses less energy and costs less money. Win-Win!

Daylight Harvesting lighting control systems dim or switch off electric lighting when there is more natural sunlight.

Bruck Lighting’s New GalaxZ

Control in commercial applications is crucial to sustainable lighting design. GalaxZ fulfills the LEED® requirements for efficiency with the use of individual integrated Daylight harvesting sensor and drivers without the need for extensive wiring installation or expensive commissioning.

GalaxZ is ideal for general lighting applications where 54w T5HO would be used. A raceway design along a linear line voltage track or canopy mount can illuminate retail, hospital, school cafeteria and classrooms, hallways, grocery store isles, conference tables, office or warehouse low bay applications.
