Lighting Recommendations for Different Areas in Learning Institutions

20 May 2019

There is no place where adequate lighting is as important as in learning institutions. It not only provides a safe atmosphere for all who enter these locations, but it also enhances the students’ concentration during their classes. Sufficient lighting lifts the mood and helps students be alert and energetic, which can increase their interaction in their classes. For all of these reasons, it is crucial to select the ideal light fixtures to ensure that the atmosphere in educational institutions is conducive to learning. We share with you some suggestions for lighting various parts of these institutions below to help you illuminate yours suitably. 

Entryways, Exits, and Outdoor Areas

Uranus and Uranus PF floodlights are two examples of the lights that are ideal for these areas. Their LED array shines effectively to bring attention to the entrances and exits. Also, these floodlights illuminate parking lots at your learning facility to allow safe access during night-time hours. The luminaire housing of these are constructed with a UV-resistant, weatherproof, fibreglass-reinforced polymer. 

Classrooms and Libraries

Tubular lights are the ones to install in libraries and classrooms where you need consistent illumination throughout the rooms. Typically, professionals install multiple units of these and in rows when necessary. Bern LED is one example of these lights and is durable enough for both indoor and outdoor use. 

Storage Rooms

Do not forget to provide adequate lighting in your storage rooms to help your staff members and students find the supplies that they need for various purposes. Beelitz is a recessed LED model that brightens up these rooms with just the right amount of illumination to ensure that all items in the room are easy to locate. 

Staircases and Hallways

These areas of a learning facility can be difficult to illuminate on the right level since they are closed in without a lot of windows. For these areas, consider installing GERA or GERA LED luminaries. Both are effective in passageways, such as hallways and staircases. 


This is another room that calls for tubular luminaires since they are easy to install over a spacious area and provide excellent illumination. ZUG LED is one example of the tubular lights that will work efficiently in this room in your educational facility.
