Tingtingting TWWAAANNGGGG bzzzzz. That’sprobably the sound your workers first hear when they turn on the lights in themorning. That sound is most likely ingrained in their brains, and not in a goodway.

Old style lighting such as fluorescent and incandescent bulbs have had their day. They were cheap and did the job well enough, but commercial LED lighting is now ahead by leaps and bounds – both in terms of efficiency and value for money. Let’s have a quick look at how a commercial LED retrofit can benefit your staff, and in turn, your business.

  • According to the National Institute of Health, the flickering lights common in fluorescent bulbs can cause headaches and even seizures in humans. LED lighting does not flicker, and better represents natural light which is more conducive to good health.
  • We all have a thing called a circadian rhythm (not cicadas in a conga line) that dictates how light affects our mood and sleep patterns. With a commercial LED lighting retrofit you can ensure your staff are under a cooler light emulating nature that fosters happiness and productivity.
  • Once your workplace has an LED lighting retrofit,your lighting is fully customisable; meaning you can dim it, diffuse it and place in an optimal arrangement to blur the lines between inside and outside,creating an airy, comfortable environment.

While the simple dollars and cents argument for the commercial retrofitting of LED lights is the most obvious advantage, the health, happiness and wellbeing of your staff is something that should not be overlooked.
