Are you blue? No, really. Next time you’re at work or the bank or a school or hospital or wherever, take a look in a mirror. Chances are, there’s a blue tint in the room coming from traditional fluorescent fixtures.
Besides spoiling the effect of make-up, the type of lighting we’ve been used to dealing with has been undermining our lives in more important ways. Broadly, it simply doesn’t take into account biological needs of humans.
If you think about it, when we were all hunter-gatherers, we didn’t walk into our caves and flick a light switch. We rose with the sun and tailored our activities through the day according to the light. We became used to the variation of lighting, and that still remains a major influence in our lives.
So when we work in locations that do not reflect natural light, our bodies rebel. We don’t sleep well, we have reduced cognitive functioning, we can’t focus or concentrate. In the business world, that translates into lost revenue from absenteeism, an increase in errors, fatigue and even lack of motivation; definitely something that would but us in a blue mood.
The Nano-Lit Solution
In Great Britain, there’s an expression: Light the blue paper. It’s a reference to the little blue paper attached to the end of a firework that you light to set off. It usually means that you’re starting something big, maybe something a little disruptive.
For Nano-Lit, that expression should be “Light the blue light.” Nano-Lit has already started something big when it comes to changing those blue fluorescents.
It has created Smart Diffuser™ Lightbar to retrofit existing fluorescent lights
It’s already underway for 2019, retrofits will be applicable to downlights. By 2020, it will bring new standalone fixtures to the business market (offices, hospitals, warehouses) and by 2021, it will hit the consumer market.
Can you see it: a chicken in every pot and a Nano-Lit fixture in every room.
Nano-Lit is ensuring the future is not blue.
