School corridor design is all about traffic flow and helping large groups of people, mostly students, move efficiently and safely to their next destination. The same is true of school stairwells. These high-use areas need to be well lit for safety, but when not in use, they’re prime locations for saving energy. A cost-effective solution begins with energy-efficient, long-life, low-maintenance LED lighting. Then add integrated controls, like occupancy sensors, to enhance the energy savings.
Lighting for stairwells and corridors must meet code requirements, but it should also provide comfortable, glare-free illumination. Fixtures with a sleek, minimalist design work well in these applications. When the spaces are unoccupied, full intensity lighting is not needed, so integrated controls help by dimming lighting until occupancy is detected.
