“A well-designed LED lighting system can improve student concentration, health, well-being and productivity levels while lowering stress and creating a better mood.”

What you can't see can hurt you...

Whilst you may not be able to see the light flicker, your brain can still perceive it and it can cause multiple neurological problems. The human eye can detect visible flicker below 90Hz. Flicker above our visual threshold may not be able to be seen by the human eye but this flicker is registered by our nervous system.  Some of the side effects are migranes, eye strain, decrease in productivity and an increase in behavorial issues.

The installation of the right lighting solution and good lighting design is essential to create a quality learning environment. Our custom lighting designs can improve student concentration, health, well-being and improve productivity levels.

Common neurological impairments from light flicker

MIGRANE DECREASED PRODUCTIVITY INCREASE IN BEHAVIORIAL PROBLEMS EPILEPTIC SEIZURES
25-50% of migrane suffers identified flicker as a trigger. Prolonged exposure to flickering light can contribute to decreased concentration, a lack of productivity and fatigue. People suffering from Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can have increased behavioral issues due to flicker. A visible flicking light can cause epileptic seizures in susceptible people.
