Natural Lighting Applications

  • Healthcare: Nurses commonly mention that fluorescent lighting on wards is tiring, so natural lighting can have a positive effect on both staff and patients.
  • Education: Natural lighting is proven to increase achievement rates, reduce fatigue, improve health and attendance and enhance general development.
  • Retail: Tests have been carried out in stores which are lit mainly by natural means. The key finding of this study was that natural daylight was found to significantly correlate to higher sales. An Average non-daylit retail chain store monitored for this study had 40% higher sales with the addition of natural lighting.
  • Offices: Productivity in offices served by natural lighting shows 20% increase in output from offices employees along with reduced absences because of sickness. It is considered that natural lighting systems have a marked effect on the reduction of the incidence of Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) and provide a stress-free, soothing and far healthier ambience by eliminating the glare and conflict of electric lighting and computer screens.
