The fluorescent lights were the standard choice for educational institutions and schools. As a result, the fluorescent light fixtures were used in most schools, colleges, and universities. In the recent research study done by Advances in Pediatric Research, proper lighting is the most crucial output after food and water. LED lights can deliver a smooth illumination spectrum, which does not have a negative effect on the student’s health.
LED lights systems like the LED panel lights or downlights decrease the power consumption of an educational establishment and lower the adverse effects on the environment. In addition, LED lights are 100% mercury-free and can be easily recyclable. Furthermore, after implementing LED light sources in educational institutions, it is seen that there is a significant increase in positive perception and behavior seen among the students and teachers.
Benefits of LED lighting in educational institutions
The LED lights are mercury-free and can be recycled easily. In addition, the installation of LED lights reduces the risk of exposure to harmful chemicals. For example, carcinogens like polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) can negatively affect student’s and teacher’s health. The PCBs are generally found among traditional fluorescent tubes.
Another harmful contaminant is mercury—the combination of mercury and inert gases used inside the tube for lighting. There can be a risk of mercury contamination the fixtures are accidentally exposed or broken. LED light fixtures are free from harmful chemicals and PCBs.
The quality of brightness
White and blue light, which is prominently associated with LED lights, helped enhance student performance. In addition, LED lights improved concentration and made the school environment healthier.
The LED lights made the learning environment positive and increased the cognitive performance of both students and teachers. The LED technology also allowed more flexibility and control when it came to dimming and other functions.
