When designing lighting, you want to make a statement and stand out from the crowd. It’s a great way to make a subtle impression and bring the right atmosphere to a business. There’s no better way to do this than with bespoke lighting systems that capture your vision perfectly.
There are plenty of styles and design options to choose from. The sheer number can be overwhelming but it also means you can find the right solution for your property, and this is important for commercial properties and businesses where more lighting is needed per room than in a residential setting.
While you can choose from existing light options and systems, such as common commercial lighting fixtures like luminaires, spotlights and more, bespoke lighting systems will make a much better impact on everyone who enters the property.
Energy-saving And Cost-saving Lighting Systems
Lighting is an area where businesses can really save money, whether you’re investing in bespoke lighting systems or upgrading existing infrastructure. This is done in one of two ways:
Lights are used a lot. Unless there’s a lot of natural light entering a commercial property, lights will often be switched on to make sure employees and customers can see where they’re going and what they’re doing. When winter arrives and there’s less daylight, this happens even more.
To mitigate this, energy-saving lights that work with bespoke light systems can make a huge difference. The light levels are kept consistent and you’ll spend less compared to other lights over the time they’re in use.
Leaving lights on when they don’t need to be is one of the biggest culprits that add to your energy bills. Rather than trying to remind everyone to switch lights off when they’re not needed, bespoke lighting systems can make use of automation functions to save energy.
Whether through a sensor or a timer, there are ways to make sure lights will switch off when they’re not needed – and even switch on automatically!
Controlling Lighting Systems
There are plenty of ways to control bespoke lighting systems. You can opt for traditional light switches, timers and passive infrared (PIR) sensors to control your lighting – and all have their uses and benefits.
Switches are a staple of lighting, and they can be wired up to control different lights or areas, allowing you to create the right atmosphere. Timers let you control when lights should be on or off but PIR sensors react to people in the room and what activates the lights accordingly, making them a great way to reduce energy use and save you money.
Emergency lights in any office or work environment is essential for health and safety compliance, keeping staff, customers and visitors safe in the event of the lights not working. To ensure you comply with the code of practice outlined in BS 5266, our NICEIC registered engineers can install the right emergency lighting for your needs.
