Environment is part of the learning
experience. Lighting in schools plays an important role. School lighting systems that deliver easily controlled, quality lighting have a positive impact on both teachers and students.
Auditoriums lean toward the dramatic, sometimes even theatrical. Lighting should be versatile enough to follow the tone of the activity: spotlighting a presenter, dimmed for movie viewing, stage illumination for ceremonies and shows. An easy-to-use control system, integrated right into the luminaires, provides flexibility for lighting that is as simple or dramatic as suits the occasion.
Broad family of luminaires that allow layering of light in these multi-use spaces
General ambient illumination that offers a narrow field angle for visual comfort
Controls that can individually address each luminaire to create a variety of scenes and effects
