Lighting has become a very important part of the workplace, as it influences productivity and employee satisfaction. It is even being considered an important ergonomic feature in office design.  

In light of this trend (pun intended), HON has added many LED lighting choices to its product portfolio over the past few years.  We offer LED and fluorescent under-cabinet lighting, as well as LED desktop lights.

Lighting and Office Design

An initial comparison between LED and fluorescent under-cabinet lighting will reveal a difference in price between the two.  While LED lighting does cost more upfront, the long-term cost savings make these options an easy choice over their fluorescent counterparts.

Here are examples of how LED can be a more cost effective solution long-term:

  • Almost Twice the Lifespan: HON’s LED light bulbs have a 50,000 hour lifespan, as compared to the fluorescent’s 30,000 hour lifespan.
  • Optional Occupancy Sensor: LED lights come with an optional occupancy sensor. The occupancy sensor can lower an energy bill by automatically turning the light off after 30 minutes of inactivity.
  • Energy Efficient: LED lights are more energy efficient, as they generate 6 more lumens per watt than our fluorescent lights*.
  • Dimming Capability: A soft touch panel on the LED light allows users to adjust light output to their own preference. Fluorescent lights can only be turned ON/OFF with no adjustment. Dimming reduces light output, resulting in a reduction of energy consumption.

How have you seen lighting influence your work environment?
