What does the UK Building Regulations prescribe for toilets? In what circumstances in emergency lighting necessary? We explain the rules...
A sophisticated lighting installation with a range of state-of-the-art technologies such as Bluetooth Mesh has been unveiled at the Bodleian Library in Oxford, parts of which date back to 1487.
The University of Illinois is currently trialling exterior lights with integrated emergency response buttons in a bid to boost the safety of its students on campus.
Facility managers at a major university are trialling Internet-connected lights in a bid to better allocate rooms and buildings and control both heating and lighting.
From lecture halls to halls of residence, the lighting of a university campus poses a string of individual challenges. These can be made even more difficult when you are working at a university that is going through a massive refurbishment programme. We caught up with Steve Holtom, electrical services manager at Oxford Brookes University, to find out the best ways to manage the demands of campus lighting.
The French government has moved to outlaw Wi-Fi in nurseries, schools and childcare centres that cater for children under six. The move is offering inspiration to the creators of Li-Fi, a system that uses light to provide internet access.
Tunable-white LED lighting systems are the next must-have for human-centric lighting, but what does 'tunable-white' mean in practice?
Four fifths of British school children are having their learning impaired and are at risk from anxiety, migraines, headaches and even dyslexia from flickering lighting, an expert scientist has warned.
In preperation for Lux's Lighting Fixture Design conference next week, which will consider the best ways to translate human-centric and circadian science into marketable products, we list four projects which have taken the capabilties of human centric and deployed them.
Wheatley Park School in Oxforshire, which sits on the site of Holton Park Girls' Grammar School, where UK Prime Minister Theresa May, then Theresa Brasier, sat her GCEs, has just received an LED re-fit.
It is well know that May is very proud of her grammar school roots. In fact, she famously said, in one of her first appearances at Prime Minister’s Questions that it was her school that ‘got her where she is today.’
Human-centric lighting represents a new way of using light in our lives, but it is understandable that there is some skepticism over its use and its effectiveness. But do we know enough about the technology to be using it in schools? We talk to Doctor Katharina Wulff of Oxford University, who will be debating the issue with Dan Lister of Arup.
