Designers and museum curators alike appreciate that there are many advantages to be found in the use of LED luminaires. This is why most museums have embraced LEDs, choosing to use them to light their exhibits and galleries effectively and efficiently.
The long life-span attributed to LEDs means the elimination of a lot of the disruption caused through regularly changing traditional bulbs, as well as reducing overall maintenance costs.
Preservation of exhibits
One of the main advantages of using LEDs within Museums is that these lights do not contain harmful ultra-violet light and very little infra-red light, both of which can be extremely harmful in terms of preserving sensitive artefacts.
The versatility of our luminaires means that exquisite design outcomes can be achieved through the use of directional beams, dimmers and filters. Furthermore, with LEDs available in a range of colour temperatures with exceptional colour rendering, all museum exhibits can be lit to perfection.
Choosing LED lighting solutions instead of traditional fluorescent lights will decrease energy consumption, particularly if dimmer switches are utilised within the installation; Manchester Museum registered a decrease in energy consumption of around 90%.
Our experts can provide specialist advice with regard to the lighting of museums and art galleries, ensuring that displays are well lit, and that light temperature, direction and colour are all optimised.
