The Lamp Company improves lighting quality at Simplyhealth

During a networking meeting a concern was raised about the quality of office lighting. We were advised that although other suppliers had looked into the issue it was as yet unresolved.  Not completely understanding all the elements involved we were asked to investigate and present our findings demonstrating the issues and options for improvement.

We attended the Letchworth offices and undertook a lighting survey, taking readings of the light levels. We asked staff questions and their opinions about the lighting of which, we identified their concerns. The main issue related to the feedback of the outputs and colour rendering. We then spoke with the Manager Lisa Hall and gave a brief visual demonstration of the different types of colour rendering and how they can affect the view and feel.

We then proceeded with a trial to exchange lamps at each end of the office space, one end with ‘warm white‘ lamps and the other with ‘daylight’ lamps keeping the centre section as it was. Immediate feedback suggested the warm white colour was being favoured and felt very relaxed. However, within hours the surrounding area appeared too warm and reading became uncomfortable therefore we replaced the lamps to the original standard white colour. Meanwhile, at the other end of the office, the daylight lamps were being well received  with comments such as “a clean look, more natural and detailed appearance”.

Shortly afterwards Simplyhealth asked us to undertake a complete lamp replacement using the daylight lamps that were trialled. Technically we did not increase or reduce consumption but by changing the lamp colour, the feedback of increased output and an overall improved office environment.

Lisa Hall has commented that “working with the team at the Lamp Company was made easy and the results for our team have been exceptional. Getting the lighting right has proved challenging so to have now found a resolution that supports our team is brilliant”’.

Here at the Lamp Company we have a wealth of knowledge and experience giving sound advice even demonstrating sometimes you do not need to go to great expense of replacing everything. Our service in this case offered the client a full package to include evaluation, demonstration, proof and installation of the new lamps in all the offices as an entire package.

New recycling technique!

We strongly advise our customers not to follow the recycling example of the Warriors of Goja as seen on this Indian talent show. Their jaw dropping performance includes smashing fluorescent tubes on their bodies, brick breaking, glass eating and driving over one another in a car. Particularly look out for a performer throwing himself on to and shattering about thirty or so tubes 1.35 minutes into the video. Quite simply, ouch!
