Unsurpassed Uniform Illumination
To achieve the best possible illumination with ceiling-bound lighting solutions it is often necessary to adjust the workspace layout to the already installed lighting; instead of the other way around. Free Standing Uplighters produce a large amount of indirect lighting, that distributed asymmetrically provides for optimal, uniform illumination of the ceiling. It is supplemented by an effective amount of directional light, which illuminates the workspaces without causing any glare or unwanted reflections.
Better Utilization Of Workspaces
Often the specific use of office areas is not known at the planning stages, therefore the planning of workspaces is accordingly difficult or impossible. Ceiling-bound lighting solutions limit the options of using the office areas, as they restrict the possibilities for individual arrangement of workstations and displays. Costly adaptation or customization may often be necessary to achieve the wanted visual effect. By using Free Standing Uplighters optimal lighting can be achieved and the entire office area can be used - the lighting can be adjusted to the individual user, rather than the room, without major effort or additional costs, thus providing the freedom for attractive layouts.
In offices, people move around frequently. Changing teams and ever new processes require changes in the organizational structure of companies; explaining why up to 30% of workstations are moved each year. This requires an extremely flexible infrastructure. Furniture and lighting systems should therefore be as adaptable to new requirements as easily and efficiently as possible. Free Standing Uplighters are an ideal solution to this case. Fitted with just a power cord and plug, they can be connected at any workspace and, in case of reorganization of the office layout or even relocation of the entire office, can easily be adapted without major installation effort - no electrician required.
The tasks to be performed at the workspace are just as varied as people’s individual visual strength. Depending on the task to be performed (which may well change on several occasions during the day) and on (age-related) visual performance, highly varied lighting levels will be required at the workspace, which need to be adjusted to suit individual requirements.
Increased Energy Efficiency
Especially in spacious buildings, there is huge potential for optimization. The more lighting is focussed on the actual work space, the more significantly the mean illuminance level is reduced, thus lowering energy consumption.
A Free Standing Uplighter’s main purpose is to illuminate the actual workspace, there for decreasing the demands on energy consumption, especially when combined with the latest technology using move ment detection and daylight harvesting. A lighting solution using Free Standing Up lighters can meet these requirements. Each person can adjust the light level at his/her workspace to his/her personal needs. Day light harvesting technology and move ment detectors create additional opera tional convenience.
