5 lighting tips when choosing clinic equipment

What illuminance level should you choose to get as good lighting as possible at your workplace? And what does perfect colour rendering really mean? Here are 5 lighting tips for professionals with high demands when choosing professional clinic equipment, whether it’s for a dental practice, a veterinary clinic or a beauty salon.

How to choose the optimal lighting

Many clinics and salons find it challenging to find the right lighting that suits their business. In a dental clinic or at a laboratory, the lighting is an important part of the clinic equipment in order to provide the best possible conditions for the daily tasks to be performed.

1. Choose lighting that is kind to your eyes

During a typical workday, your eyes often need to switch focus between the strong light from the work lamp and the surrounding light over 1000 times. When choosing clinic equipment, it is therefore important to consider lighting that lowers the contrast for the eyes, to avoid strained eyes and headaches. This is done by letting the intensity of the light sources interact in a ratio of 1: 5. Does it sound complicated? It is. But in addition to designing our lamps to not generate shadows, flickering or glare, we also offer a function that lowers the contrast to the rest of the room.

2. Choose a light source with perfect colour rendering

Perhaps you have bought a sweater at some point and discovered that it looks completely different at home than it did in the store? When choosing clinic equipment, make sure your light sources have a perfect colour rendering. It’s about CRI – colour rendering index. And a bad colour rendering in this case. When choosing lighting from us at D-TEC, we have already optimized the light sources for you, so you don’t have to think about lux, Kelvin and CRI when choosing clinic equipment.

3. Choose a hygienic design

Are you looking for clinic equipment for a business with high demands when it comes to hygiene, such as a veterinary station, a dental clinic, a laboratory or a beauty salon? All our light sources are hygienic thanks to their fully moulded construction that gives you a close to maintenance-free product. That said, they are a perfect choice of clinic equipment for clinical environments.

4. Choose lighting that suits all ages

If you have employees over the age of 40, they tend to need almost twice as much light as a 20-year-old. In other words, you can benefit from a dimming function when choosing workplace lighting, which allows you to share your workplace with colleagues of different ages and with different needs, and still be able to offer optimal clinic equipment for everyone – regardless of age.

5. Choose high-quality that lasts 

When it comes to choosing professional clinic equipment, we have been in the spotlight with our innovative LED lighting with the latest technology since 1989. And we are proud to still manufacture our lamps in Nossebro in the west of Sweden where everything started over 30 years ago. With workplace lighting from us at D-TEC, you can enjoy perfect light that will allow you to work with greater precision and increased well-being during 50,000 hours of burning time, or for the next 17 years – based on 8 hours of use per work day.
