Lighting Requirements for School Classrooms

Premium-quality classroom lights brighten up the learning surrounding and assist students to view better. As per the study, well-designed classroom lighting has an optimistic influence. Lighting helps in decreasing or increasing alertness and focus.

The circadian rhythm of the human body is sensitive to the light spectrum that is visible to the human eye. This is especially true for the blue wavelengths in their different levels and intensity. This rhythm informs a body when to wake up or sleep. That’s because blue light activates wakefulness. Orange-tinged dusky light triggers melatonin’s production, which is a sleep-inducing hormone. Staff and students under artificial lighting with blue wavelengths regularly may develop disturbances. The effects could be from waking and sleep disturbances to eating and metabolism patterns. Mood patterns, mood changes, hormone production, immune system, and mental alertness disturbances are there.

Many artificial lights used in classrooms produce blue light more than the sun at sunset. However, various lighting dims for availing human-centric and circadian lighting. This kind of lighting changes to the students’ rhythms in an indoor space.

LED magnetic strip retrofit kits feature magnetic backing. This magnetic backing attaches stripes to existing light fixtures. Thus, for powering the lights, the drivers connect to the electricity mains quickly.

These magnetic strip retrofit kits can mount on all metallic surfaces. The use of these kits is not just limited to applications featuring fluorescent fixtures. One can place them in any area that needs light. They come in 8ft, 4ft, and 2ft lengths.

Lighting Requirements of School Gymnasiums


School gymnasiums are usually lit by old, sluggish high bay light fixtures, where students have to wait for these lights to turn on. However, this has become a thing of the past now. Today, a gymnasium illuminates instantly on switching on a light due to LED school lights. Many school gyms rely on aged 400W metal halide high-bay lights. These lights are not just energy-inefficient but require recurring maintenance.

Metal Halide bulbs require a warm-up time of around 5-15 minutes for meeting complete lighting potential. Often these lights are switched on all day, even when there is no need for their light. They generate dark spots and shadows, which affect various sporting activities.

Also, metal halides tend to flicker and buzz as their lifespan diminishes. Unfortunately, the replacement cost is quite high for these lights. Gyms having high ceilings for high-impact activities. Besides that, these spaces are often used for multipurpose spaces, like community meeting spaces and assembly halls.

Premium-quality gym lighting should be flexible. It should be bright for high-intensity sports and gentle for ceremonies. This flexibility in lighting cannot be achieved through metal halide lamps.

UFO LED High Bays
