We are looking forward to your feedback in the comments 😉 Lighting devices have long stopped solving only technical problems, now they help us in areas that we can’t even imagine! Light is not only a necessity which helps people orient themselves anymore. Its design, the esthetic side, also matters a lot. For us the most important thing is the engineering factors that we can provide. We know which factors are more essential in a particular situation. Maria Kosheleva, CFO at LEDeffect A comfortable light environment creates a place where people feel comfortable and cozy and where they want to stay. Do you know that the sun is white, not yellow? The key parameters of LED devices are CRI (color rendering index), luminous flux, colour temperature, and luminous efficacy. Those who watch football know that if the lighting is poor, the football pitch may seem purple on the screen, while in the reality it’s obviously green. Ruslan Miminov, 1st class product engineer at LEDeffect One of my tasks is to design new LED devices for outdoor and office lighting, as well as for industrial application. We can create any LED device in terms of size, power or colour, according to the client’s requirements. To make such production possible, a lot of new equipment has been bought. We’ve purchased a new laser metal cutter, which allows to cut and shape large thick metal sheets. We’ve also got a large paint booth, so we can apply any coating to our devices. Do you know that it’s more pleasant to eat in the warmer lighting? We come to a restaurant or a café not only to have a meal, but also to relax. That is why such factors as colour temperature, for example a comfortable warm light, influence our emotional state. If a restaurant features a cold light, you’ll feel uncomfortable there, because a cold light stimulates your brain power. We usually use warm light at home, so we can relax after a working day and don’t feel the need to run as if we were in a fitness center. Warm lighting reminds us of home and coziness and promotes relaxation. Andrey Sidorov, Sales Director at LEDeffect Improperly lit, even fresh products can look repulsive. Do you know that in fitness centers and sports complexes the lighting should be bright but not blinding? There is an issue with fitness centers, they often place lamps in such a way that people can be dazzled by the light while doing the bench press, for example. Our task was to create such light, that it would make the room bright and the environment comfortable, on the one hand, wouldn’t dazzle the people, on the other. We strived to create a favourable light environment for people in the fitness center, as well as match the lamps to the location’s interior. Do you know that for the maximum attention and focus the body requires lighting of different colour temperatures according to the time of the day? We have a new area, which we’re currently working on, and already carrying on the first project. It’s biologically active luminaries. If talking about schools, for some lessons we need to use one colour temperature, for other lessons we need another and for physical education we need a third type. It’s a flexible and adjustable system. And actually, it’s quite simple. With its help we can maintain 70-100 percent of a person’s activity throughout the day. An office worker should have a proper lighting on his or her desk. But if you use cold light in an office, the employees can feel depressed. Lighting is really important, as it influences people’s mood and emotional state. Do you know that blinking light has a direct impact on a person’s emotional state? There are lamps with pulsating light. And this kind of light can trigger a headache. You can see that pulsation through a mobile phone’s camera. It’s like an old TV-set, the display blinks when the picture changes. It’s really harmful and doesn’t meet any norms. What do we see in hospitals? There the most comfortable light environment possible must be created, so that people with health issues didn’t feel uncomfortable because of the light. The hospital light should be relaxing, it should promote rest. In wards there also should be warm light. While in the common areas simpler lamps could be installed. Lamps should be ecofriendly and safe. We’ve received a certificate confirming that our devices can be used in such locations. Our employees use a special software which models the location that needs to be lit. Then, we select a design for this particular project and offer our solution to the client. The LEDeffect company produces lighting devices for outdoor spaces, interiors, industrial enterprises, landmarks, schools, hospitals, sports centers and many others We are already exporting to Cyprus, Poland, Algeria, and to Eastern, Central and Western Europe. The LEDeffect lamps meet all the international technological requirements and safety norms; they have undergone testing on the compliance with all European directives and received the CE certificates. LEDeffect delivers its products anywhere in the world. LEDeffect has a warehouse and a service center in Germany and can promptly deliver goods and provide services throughout Europe. Prior to shipment, all the parameters of the devices are checked, such as power, CRI, and punch-through voltage. After packing, the lamp is assigned a unique number, which helps to track the device in the future, say five or ten years later. What I like most about my work is the process of designing new lamps and creating a comfortable and favourable environment for people. What’s our final goal? It’s when in the room with our lamps you feel comfortable and don’t even realize that there’s a source of artificial light there. That’s what we call a “comfortable light environment”. Creating a comfortable environment is what we do, that’s our strength, that’s what we can and will continue doing.
