Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s Focus On LEDs in Lighting newsletter. I mentioned this in yesterday’s News & Insights mailing, but if you don’t receive those weekly digests, you can fix that by signing up today. I’m seeking two to three interesting medical care/hospital lighting projects that have been completed within the last 8 months to be covered in our January/February 2024 issue. If you're a lighting designer/specifier, supplier, or installer and you'd like to have your project considered, please email me: a project explainer with a short description of the project scope/scale, retrofit needs, client objectives, any controls systems involved, and a list of engineering/design team pros who worked on the project.
The call for projects has led me to realize that we at LEDs mainly cover circadian-effective lighting in healthcare settings. Of course clinical, surgical, and other care environments have varying needs to address, from patient safety to staff visual acuity to providing a calming environment for healing – regardless of the circadian aspects. And healthcare facilities offer a significant retrofit business opportunity with the eventual removal of mercury-containing fluorescents from the market. I’m looking ahead to highlighting some inspiring case studies.
Please stay in touch about content we publish and to propose contributed articles.
