LEDs in Retail and Office

LEDs in Retail and Office

Design and emotion, function and ergonomics – these are the requirements modern LED systems have to meet. In retail, for example, a shop illumination can set the perfect stage

for the goods. Or in the office, where an ergonomic lighting solution – adjusting flexibly to different working situations - can promote the staff’s well-being. LEDs do all this, and top of that they also save energy.

LEDs in Retail

By now, LEDs have long become an integral part in all applications of shop lighting – from signage to showcase lighting. What makes LED lighting beneficial?

  • LEDs provide colored light inherently and are therefore particularly suited for colored lighting effects; dynamic color changes can be easily done through RGB color mixing using electronic controls
  • The color temperature of LEDs can be adjusted; an advantage for new shop concepts or changing collections: lighting up winter clothing in cold white light and summer attire in warm white light
  • On media facades or illuminated ceilings made from LEDs, lettering or images can be shown for advertising appeal; they are used in spotlights and downlights because of their targeted light
  • LEDs are easy on sensitive goods such as food or textiles because their light is free of UV and infrared rays; this property, along with their small size, makes it possible to place LEDs close to the goods
  • Light-emitting diodes are not sensitive to the cold, making them ideal for outdoor lighting or for use in freezers
  • LEDs are efficient and extremely durable; this saves energy and reduces maintenance costs
  • LED lamps are simple to install in existing luminaires, making the transition to LED technology quick and easy

LEDs in the Office

LEDs are an efficiency factor in office operation. With their high luminous efficacy (lumen per watt), LEDs combined with energy-saving light management can use up to 75% less energy than a conventional lighting system. Yet LEDs have more to offer:

  • LEDs have a service life of up to 50,000 hours; this reduces the maintenance effort to a minimum.
  • Light-emitting diodes produce a light with a straight beam; this can be aimed precisely on desks and other work surfaces
  • Thanks to their small footprint, LED are ideal for minimalistic and flexible luminaires of sophisticated design
  • LEDs offer light in various colors; this allows changing the color dynamically to stimulate the biorhythms of office workers; neutral white light, for example, has a stimulating effect in the morning while warm white tones in the evening are more calming
  • LEDs are very easy to control and simple to integrate with electronic light management systems; possible applications are little-used rooms such as corridors or toilets where light is automatically dimmed or turned off by a detector
