Light for educational institutions 

Learning more effectively with the right light

Light greatly influences well-being and concentration. Lighting at universities, schools, and kindergartens makes a significant contribution to how well students, pupils, and kindergarten children can find their way around and focus at educational institutions.

Lighting needs to remain flexible to cater to a wide range of new teaching formats. In lecture halls and classrooms, excellent, reflection-free vision is a top priority, while reduced-glare and balanced brightness protect the eyes from fatigue. Luminaires should create a pleasant ambience in libraries and cafeterias in schools. Additionally, they play a representative role in the assembly hall or outdoors.

Smart lighting at schools and universities

Light also influences mood. Cool daylight white promotes attention while warm white light has an inspirational and relaxing effect. Biodynamic lighting supports learning and regeneration by adapting to the human rhythm throughout the day. In addition to lighting in school buildings, room acoustics have a significant impact on successful learning. Acoustic elements optimise speech intelligibility and reduce noise, thus improving presentations and cutting distractions during conversations. 

By using smart luminaires, the lighting system can be more sustainable and efficient with the help of state-of-the-art technologies. Intelligent sensor technology coordinates natural lighting conditions with artificial light, and motion-controlled lighting systems save energy. Above all, lighting in an educational institution creates security and identity – and crafts an environment in which students and pupils find their way around, feel a sense of belonging and enjoy learning. 

Efficient lighting for educational institutions

High lighting quality supports performance and contributes to a greater sense of well-being. The key to optimised lighting in classrooms, specialist classrooms, or learning areas is lighting control in combination with efficient LED luminaires. However, public buildings still often have outdated systems installed. Refurbishment measures are available both by replacing the existing luminaires with new versions and by installing completely new systems. The best possible energy solutions can be generated by LED systems with dimming. 

Incentives are also created by the fact that subsidies can be claimed for the refurbishment of public buildings if, for example, energy-efficient luminaires are used. Schools then benefit from significant energy savings and improved lighting quality at the same time - for maximum well-being for the children.

Classroom planning example

In this classroom, the first step was to replace the fluorescent tubes with circular LED luminaires, resulting in energy savings of 49 percent. If the lights are controlled in DIM DALI mode, energy and CO2 savings of up to 75 percent can be achieved.

Lighting design trends for educational institutions

Well-being through dynamic light

Light has a great influence on well-being and concentration. Furthermore, light influences mood. While cool white daylight promotes attention, warm white light has a relaxing effect and supports creativity.

Effective learning through good acoustics

Alongside the right light, optimal room acoustics are equally important for successful teaching. Light and acoustics now go hand-in-hand in product development thereby optimising speech intelligibility and reducing noise levels.

Energy efficiency

Clever lighting design offers many advantages for learners and teachers. This begins with the use of natural daylight and it extends to significant energy savings through automatic switching off luminaires in empty rooms.

International School Copenhagen

A prime example of the right lighting in schools: from the very beginning, the focus was on using light to create the best possible learning, teaching, and working environment. It requires flexibility and adaptability to match the right light to the right situation.

A matter of brightness

We would like this comprehensive brochure to provides you the best possible support in lighting design for educational facilities. You will find concrete application examples for the lighting of technical colleges, schools, universities, and other educational institutions.
