Correct lighting is important in all areas of life, but if we were to quantify which activities require the highest quality of light, then lighting for education would be fairly near the top of that list. There is a wealth of research indicating that the ergonomics of an environment significantly improve or retard individual and group learning performance. These elements include light, sound enhancement, color, room design, temperature, and instructional design and energy distribution

Lighting for education is considered so important because lighting impacts on the ability of people to learn and be stimulated, it also affects the feeling of wellbeing within the learning environment. It is well documented that poor lighting can lead to behavioral problems, and can affect the minds ability to concentrate, as well as the obvious problems of eyestrain, headaches and fatigue.

Classrooms are used for so many different activities, and it is important to consider all activities that may take place in the classroom including the possibility of the room being used for evening classes, keeping in mind that adults require higher levels of light for similar tasks.

Besides being a place to get books, libraries are also used for small exhibitions and studying. Good vertical luminance is required on the book shelves, and display walls, but glare needs to be avoided for the study areas where there is likely to be display screen equipment.

HRFA provides educational lighting solutions that are sustainable and energy efficient. We make a good use of the element of "light" as a contributor to the enhancement of learning performance and achievement.
