A Personal Source of Light
The personal task light is actually one of the most important components for a good working environment.
Unwanted aches and pains
A whole range of unwanted aches and pains, headaches, neck and back ailments and eyestrain can be attributed to poor lighting. This is because the body compensates for poor lighting; we adopt unhealthy postures in order to see well.
When fitting out or refurbishing your workplace it is essential to provide adequate light from an adaptable and easily adjusted source such as a task light.
The key to reduced general lighting
By placing a task light at each workspace, we are not only providing the individual with a good and ergonomically correct lighting solution, but are also making it possible to substantially reduce the general lighting in the room.
The amount of light you need changes with age. A 60 year old requires 5-6 times as much light as a 20 year old.
