Did you know - People in their 60s require 5-6x more light than do people in their 20s. 91% of computer users suffer from eyestrain and that non-adjustable overhead light creates glare and distractions which contribute to eyestrain.
This creates a tremendous disparity between the lighting needs around an office. A single source system of overhead lighting is inadequate and causes a significant amount of waste in office environments.
Task lighting has been shown to have the benefit of increasing worker productivity, largely due to individuals being given control over their own lighting levels. Participants in a lighting study using task lights produced a 35% to 42% decrease in energy consumption.
Selecting the proper task light has a lot to do with style and personal tastes; however placing a task light in the proper position is the key to generating the cost saving benefits.
