How to be smart about lighting
Are you at your best all day? Do you have the same focus and discipline early morning as you do later in the afternoon. Nope? Well, neither do I.
What about sleeping with the lights on? How does that work out for you? Nothing like showing up to work in the morning, starting off the day in an irritable mood.
In natural environments, our bodies experience constantly changing light conditions. That variation throughout the day helps regulate our mood and is directly connected to our productivity level. Without it, well, we’re out of sync and we experience compromised health, headaches, lack of focus, sleep disruptions, memory loss – you name it.
In fact, in 2007, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, which is part of the World Health Organization, classified shift work with circadian disruption as a probable human carcinogen. That’s right – working in an environment where the lighting doesn’t match what your body’s natural needs may cause cancer.
And businesses wonder why they have expensive medical claims, chronic absenteeism and high turnover rates.
The Nano-Lit Solution
Since we know that natural light changes throughout the day, there’s no way a single light source could possibly reproduce daylight. It might reproduce daylight accurately for a short period each day, but for effective duplication, you have to be able to have the light change gradually all day long.
Nano-Lit addresses this with its Smart Diffuser™ that can be retrofit on current fluorescent lighting. It sidesteps the need for expensive installations; it’s eco-friendly, matches LEDs in efficiency; and it uses quantum dot technology, which is at the cutting edge of industry standards for reproducing natural light.
In fact, no other product combines the retrofit ability, human-centric variation in lighting and quantum dots technology. The result is an increase in productivity, decrease in health claims and turnover rates and a happier, healthier staff.
