What should be considered with LED office lighting?

The wrong lighting in the office can, in the worst case, lead to health problems such as headaches or eye damage. Legal requirements must therefore be observed.

Furthermore, it is worthwhile to rely on high-quality LED office lighting. These offer the advantage of high energy efficiency with maximum longevity. In addition, LED offers the possibility of individually reproducing smart light scenes.

What are the specifications for office lighting?

Light in the office must meet specific standards set out in DIN EN 12464 and the Occupational Health and Safety Act. These include, for example, freedom from glare, freedom from flicker or minimum requirements for illuminance levels for different activities:

  • Archives: 200 lux
  • Copying work / filing: 300 lux
  • Reading, writing, data processing: 500 lux
  • Technical drawing: 750 lux

Generally speaking, a basic illuminance of 500 lux is ideal for most office work.

Which light color for office lighting?

The color temperature plays a major role in the lighting of indoor workplaces. In offices, cool white or daylight white light sources are suitable. These are closest to natural light, and the high blue content promotes concentration and keeps the body alert. The color temperature in the office should therefore be between 4,000 and 6,500 Kelvin.

Tip: HCL recreates the natural course of sunlight and thus has a particularly healthy effect on the human biorhythm.

What is Human Centric Lighting?

HCL is a circadian lighting system that controls the color temperature and luminous intensity of the light sources analogously to the natural light pattern of the sun. Thus, the lighting is warmer and weaker in the morning, and bright and intense at midday, when the sun is also at its highest. In the afternoon and evening, HCL luminaires dim the light down again. Lighting that is adapted to the human biorhythm in this way has a positive effect on well-being, health and performance.

What LED luminaires are suitable for office lighting?

LED panels are excellent for general office lighting. They provide wide-area and uniform illumination without dazzling. Thanks to their flat design, they blend unobtrusively into all design concepts.

Individual workstations can be supplemented with desk luminaires or floor luminaires to suit their own needs or activities. Smart office luminaires offer the possibility of reproducing individual light scenes and thus ensure satisfied and efficient employees.
