Expert lighting solutions today include considering lighting for wellness.

In April 2020, The Light Center has developed a UV lighting system to sterilize N95 masks. Decontamination of masks will continue to be a helpful supplement to the sterilization processes already in place and we are grateful for the opportunity to help. When we began to focus on lighting for wellness, we had no idea the impact we may make and now we are working with hospitals and CSU to design and test the system with COVID-19. Stay tuned!

Extensive research shows that indoor lighting can mimic the sun to help our body clocks. Our circadian rhythms can be helped or hindered by lighting at various times of the day. Ask us about lighting for offices, homes, senior citizens and Alzheimer’s patients. We would love to share our knowledge with you!

In September of 2019, we began a case study with Institute for Built Environment at Colorado State University with United Way to see how a specific lighting technology improves the health and wellbeing of office occupants, compared to T12 and LED lighting. We were exploring the difference between offices with windows and no windows. The case study is on pause but we have plans to not only continue the great work of implementing lighting for wellness but take it a step further with UV Sterilization.
