Educational Lighting

As students become more reliant on technology daily, schools must provide an optimal learning environment that enhances the educational experience.

Here are some of our favorites that are not only functional but fun!

Turtle Safe

As coastal communities continue to grow and expand, we must take steps to protect the wildlife that calls these areas home. One issue that’s been gaining attention in recent years is the impact of lighting on sea turtles. These creatures are susceptible to light, and using bright or improperly placed lights can cause significant disruptions to their natural behaviors.

Environmentally Friendly

Not all luminaires are created equal. Poorly designed lighting fixtures are primarily responsible for light pollution that can affect our health, migratory patterns of wildlife, and the ability to see the stars in the sky. A wide variety of options are available from manufacturers regarding environmentally/dark sky compliant fixtures.

Sports Lighting

Professional and amateur athletes revel in their sport of choice, but safety always comes first through adequate protection and the right equipment to play the game. Similarly, the illumination must offer visual acuity for the players to perform at their peak when split-second strategic decisions are required.
