School lighting

At a time when the learning environment plays a crucial role in student achievement and well-being, lighting is a key element in the design of contemporary school facilities. At Keld Valbæk, we recognize the importance of creating optimal school lighting that supports the well-being of both students and teachers as well as the school’s energy efficiency. This article will explore how schools can optimize their lighting systems, focusing on sensor-based technology and DALI lighting control, which is often a requirement in public building projects.

The importance of optimal school lighting

A well-designed lighting environment in schools helps improve students’ concentration, reduces fatigue and promotes a positive learning experience. Incorrect lighting, on the other hand, can lead to increased fatigue and reduced concentration, which negatively affects learning efficiency.

Principles of school lighting

Natural light

Maximizing natural light is at the top of our list as it promotes a healthier learning environment and can reduce the need for artificial lighting. Strategic placement of windows and use of materials that reflect natural light can improve lighting conditions in classrooms and common areas.

Artificial lighting

When it comes to artificial lighting, we focus on implementing systems that offer flexibility and control, such as DALI (Digital Addressable Lighting Interface) lighting control systems. DALI makes it possible to control and adapt light levels in different parts of the school, ensuring that the lighting is always optimized for the activity in the room.

  • Brightness: We ensure that the lighting is sufficient and evenly distributed to avoid shadows and overlit areas, which is essential for creating a comfortable learning environment.
  • Colour temperature: We choose light sources with a color temperature suitable for school environments, which often involves a balance between warm and cool tones to promote focus and well-being.
  • Sensors: By integrating motion and daylight sensors, schools can automatically adjust lighting levels as needed, which not only improves energy efficiency, but also ensures that lighting is always optimal for the use of the room.

Energy efficiency and sustainability

By using energy-efficient lighting solutions such as LED together with intelligent lighting control through DALI systems, schools can achieve significant energy savings. This not only supports a sustainable approach to school operations, but can also free up budget funds for other important educational resources.

At Keld Valbæk, we are dedicated to helping schools create learning environments where lighting contributes positively to students’ learning and well-being.
