Spotlights are rarely used in commercial facilities, with the exception of recessed led lights. Consisting of a can that is fitted into the ceiling, this type of luminary provides seamless illumination for everyday tasks around the office.
Sleek and Spacious Configurations
Recessed led lights offers a handful of advantages for workers in commercial buildings. The units create a spacious illusion in rooms, making the ceiling appear higher. Additionally, recessed lights installed at corners can make the location feel open. The lightweight luminaries do not require bulky mounts or support – when installed, the lights provide the impression that they’re floating or suspended in the air.
When it comes to uniform lighting configurations, the cans must be spaced apart evenly, both from the wall to the lights and from light to light. For instance, if one’s recessed lights are 4-6 feet away from the wall, they should also be 4-6 feet away from each other.
Things to Consider
There are some challenges associated with installing and operating recessed lighting systems that one should know about before incorporating them inside commercial buildings. Initially, installations are more complex, compared to standard luminaries. This is because the units must be fitted into the ceiling, which usually requires holes to be created before installation. Furthermore, help from experts or professionals might be needed for meticulous installations involving building insulation systems.
After installation, the luminaries cannot be moved. For offices, this could be an issue, since rearranging the layout of the area could affect lighting performance. To avoid such challenges, be sure to commit to a long-term configuration of the space before setting up recessed lights.
Lastly, maintaining the luminaries tend to be more troublesome than other types of lighting systems, due to their compact design. Fortunately, using LED bulbs can reduce frequency of maintenance, as the units come with extended lifespans of 50,000+ hours.
