BLT Direct are one of the UK’s leading suppliers of lighting solutions to homes and businesses, with plenty of commercial clients enjoying the choice of a wide range of energy-saving light bulbs. As winter lags on and terrible weather conditions plague the UK, BLT Direct are encouraging offices across the country to keep morale high and give employees a boost with the introduction of high-quality daylight bulbs.
It is an often-stated fact that natural daylight is conducive to productivity when in an office environment. With employees staring at screens all day, dull, fluorescent lighting can bring on headaches, cause eye strain and leave workers feeling drained when it comes time to clock out for the day. However, many offices are limited in the amount of natural daylight they can provide; being situated on the ground floor of a building can prevent light from reaching the office floor, and some may not have the adequate window space to let the light in. Step forward, daylight light bulbs.
Steven Ellwood, Managing Director of BLT Direct, says, “Natural daylight is one of those must-haves, alongside support chairs and coffee makers, which need to be in constant supply in offices. But where this is not possible, daylight light bulbs provide a cost-effective and high-quality solution. These bulbs reflect natural lighting as much as possible, helping to improve mood, prevent eye strain and headaches among staff members, and boost the atmosphere in the workplace.”
Daylight bulbs come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and wattages, with a selection of bases that will fit easily into many existing fittings around a conventional workplace. They also come in energy-saving models so that businesses can adhere to sustainability policies even when replacing their existing bulbs.
The bulbs can help employees to see things more clearly, and in a more life-like way. Colours and contrast are both greatly enhanced any time of the day or night; in a workplace that deals with graphics and images, this could be crucial in achieving the desired results on behalf of clients. Scientists have also discovered that working in an environment that appears to be naturally lit improves the general wellbeing and concentration levels of individuals. Fatigue is lessened, productivity is boosted and morale is at a high in the workplace, all from an inspired switch in lighting solutions.
