- About us
Lighting is one of the top consumers of electricity in school halls.
Multi-purpose areas with high ceilings require lighting to be dynamic. The Kascade offers well balanced illumination that prevents unwanted contrast or glare, it has a very high colour rendering index of Ra>90 for clear distinction between object colours and offers high impact resistance IK 10.
MULTI-PURPOSE SCHOOL HALLS ARE HARD TO LIGHT
A school hall is a multi-functional space allowing for a wide range of sporting activities, school assemblies, school productions, cafeteria, exams and it is sometimes used as a community meeting space. Multi-purpose areas with high ceilings require lighting to be uniform, dynamic and inexpensive to suit the school environment.
INCREASE SAFETY AND VISIBILITY
Lighting multi-purpose sport courts needs to ensure the player can see a moving ball against a hall background and also to locate team members quickly. During sports, players look up several times, for example to locate the ball. A glare free light is therefore important. Having uniform light and minimum glare is a must for sports that require above-head vision. The Kascade offers well balanced illumination that prevents unwanted contrast or glare, it has a very high colour rendering index of Ra>90 for clear distinction between object colours.
BOOST ATTENTION & VISUAL COMFORT
Optimised lighting increases attention span and keeps the students alert. Replacing old/faulty lighting with uniform LED lights will minimise shadows and improve visual comfort. For example, converting a sports court to a morning assembly hall or examination environment requires lighting to be dimmed down to 160 lux or 240 lux respectively from the ultra-bright environment required for sports. Dimming the lights does not reduce spatial uniformity or colour rendering unlike the limitations of previous lighting technologies such as metal halide bulbs and fluorescent tubes.
The Kascade comes in four different wattages from 100W to 200W and can be optically configured in 50°, 90° or 120° beam angles to suit the required application.
