Have you ever been to the Rainforest Café restaurants? They have these amazing star ceilings. I’ve seen beautiful star ceilings in other restaurants, too. They are in quite a few design books.

When my son was little, I put little glow-in-the-dark stickers on his ceiling. They are in a lot of kid’s books, too.

“’The stars on the ceiling are cool,’ Dexter said. ‘I wonder how many there are.’”
Horrible Harry Bugs the Three Bears by Suzy Kline, Frank Remkiewicz

Now there are easy-to-install fiber optic star ceiling kits that use LED. The light source just plugs in. The fibers run up to 12′ and push through the ceiling.

They are easy to install through the existing ceiling or wall. Special panels are available that can be fitted in or just replace drop ceiling panels. The stars can twinkle or change color. The more fiber you pull through the hole, the brighter the star is. You can even paint the ceiling to create cloud or galaxy effects.

These pictures are in books I would highly recommend. You may be able to check them out of the library. They are on Amazon or Barnes & Noble. You can spend hours poring over the beautiful photos.

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.
