Gone are the days of open floor office plans fitted out with fluorescent lighting. As technology has changed and with it the introduction of more sustainable LED luminaires, so too has the design of the modern workplace. As more people are working in flexible office environments or even setting up an office to work from home, the question often arises: how to choose an LED luminaire for your office?
The lighting level – although most office spaces will need to be illuminated to a standard acceptable level, if your office needs to be brighter for more detailed oriented tasks, then you will have to ensure that there are enough LED luminaires or more powerful LED luminaires to reach the desired lighting level in your office.
Dimming and lighting controls – not all LED luminaires have this capability, so if you have an existing lighting control system that you would like to include your LED luminaires in, then this is something to note. But even if you don’t, having the option to dim your lights is an advantageous feature that you’ll soon wonder how you lived without.
