Healthcare backlighting must meet the various needs of patients, healthcare staff, designers, installers and regulators. In this guide, we delve into the top needs of healthcare applications and discuss how to specify LumiSheet LED panels to suit your project.
The Right Comfort
Healthcare spaces should be comfortable and their lighting needs to be easy on the eyes. This is because glare and poor quality of light can be disruptive to a feeling of well-being and productivity, especially for patients and staff who are in the space for long periods of time. Opt for soft, even, and glare-free backlighting here with diffused LumiSheet.
The Right White
We all evolved in the great outdoors, and still rely on the daylight cycle to help us sleep on schedule and stay effective throughout the day. However, many healthcare spaces are closed off to daylight and also poorly lit. To address this concern, DLC’s variable white LumiSheet has adjustable brightness and color temperatures. It brings the outdoor light cycle indoors and can be tailored to the needs of each room at a given time. Set to cool temperatures of natural light mid-day, it helps keep energy levels high. Set to warm temperatures of natural light found in the late afternoon and evening, lighting can help people feel relaxed and calm. Adjust LumiSheet’s output to help patients rest and heal. You can also set it to help technicians stay bright and focused.
The Right Reputation
To satisfy strict construction regulations, healthcare backlighting needs to be provided by an experienced manufacturer with a longstanding history. Products need to be UL listed and RoHS compliant, warranties need to be solid, and customer support needs to be dependable. DLC, the makers of LumiSheet, meets all reputation requirements. We are a pioneer in the LED backlighting industry, with LumiSheet being the original LED light panel to the market. Furthermore, we manage and manufacture in the USA and Canada, with the support of our overseas facilities when required.
The Right Durability
Many healthcare applications require lighting that’s on all the time. As well, change-outs are disruptive to day to day operations of medical facilities. Therefore, healthcare backlighting needs to be energy efficient, durable and long lasting. To address this, LumiSheet has a 70,000 hour life span, making change-outs a thing of the past. It’s designed for efficiency and durability.
The Right Options
With the right product, the possibilities for healthcare lighting design are endless. LumiSheet is made for customization, and is available in any shape, any size, color, and curve. Use it to provide gentle light to hospital headboards, create virtual skylights and windows, as well as add even lighting to the architecture of a medical space. Our controllers make it easy to adjust and set color temperatures to ensure the right light for any environment.
The Right Installation
Lumisheet is ideal for ease of installation. The super slim 8mm sheet can be slotted into a manufactured headwall, or be clipped behind a diffused glass panel for a brilliant effect. The panel itself can be custom-built to allow pass through of various stand-off systems and to accommodate various gas piping and electrical needs.
