Office Lighting LED Lighting for the Modern Workplace
LED Lighting for the Modern Office Driving Down the Cost of Energy
LED lighting technology has advanced dramatically in recent years. Once only viable for display and effect, and only used in commercial offices with unlimited budgets and ‘green’ agendas, LEDs are now a financially viable low energy workplace lighting solution. LED lighting now offers exceptional light quality and reliability, with a varied range of visually stimulating luminaires to suit any space.
A Typical LED Lighting Scheme Delivers
As LED technology advances, the savings potential and scope of suitable projects widens. LEDs have now surpassed even long lamp fluorescent light sources in terms of energy consumption; making them ideal for general area lighting in commercial office spaces. By using LED lighting in the workplace, energy savings of over 50% can be achieved, with this number increasing if lighting controls are also utilised. An LED office is no longer an option just for ‘any-cost’, trailblazing developments. In today’s market, commercial LED luminaires are now priced little more than their fluorescent counterparts, making tangible energy and financial savings a realistic option.
Creating Comfortable Office Spaces
Driven by Design
All Ceiling Types
Whitecroft Lighting’s range of commercial LED luminaires have been specifically designed around the best quality LEDs available today. All of our luminaires control glare from any angle of view, and employ cutting edge optical controllers to ensure comfort and durability. This creates the optimum working environment for all users; enhancing well-being and productivity. Compliance is also guaranteed, with our solutions meeting the glare limits as defined in BS EN 12464, as well as the SLL Lighting Guide (LG7) and British Council of Offices Lighting Guide (BCO).
For decades, conventional source luminaire design was dictated by lamp shape. LEDs offer the freedom to move away from traditional constraints, allowing the designer unparalleled flexibility and creativity. Whilst there is still a need to offer luminaires that integrate into standard ceiling layouts, there are now many more innovative options. From seamless continuous lines of light to curved and cornered shapes, LEDs raise the bar of office design.
Whitecroft has a variety of LED luminaires that can be integrated into standard suspended ceiling systems; whether traditional grid or metal pan systems. For open soffit ceilings, we also offer single or connected lighting solutions that can stand alone or be part of a continuous system with other integrated services. Some of our luminaires have the option to be recessed or suspended; promoting consistency of both efficiency and aesthetic across many ceiling types.

LED Lighting for Open Soffit Applications Foil LED
Current best practice in building design is to utilise the natural cooling properties of a building to deliver the lowest throughlife cost. The removal of a suspended ceiling challenges the designers of building services to meet both the technical and aesthetic demands of the modern building. Foil LED has been developed in response to these challenges; a revolutionary lighting system that incorporates acoustic properties and allows full integration of other services like sprinkler systems, radiant panels, tannoys etc. Foil LED’s wide raft creates a sleek visual plane below the ceiling line, reducing the visual clutter associated with exposed soffits.
Avenue suspended is a unique modular LED lighting system. Finished in white or textured silver, showcasing a slim line, contemporary design and with optional uplight, Avenue suspended is visually stimulating and brings life to the ceiling plane.
