Opticians Shop Lighting can be triggering, given that needs to balance the task lighting aspect with the general lighting one. In other words, an opticians testing room is part of a retail store where people perform a very specific task and thus needs to provide lighting that is functional and attractive at the same time.
RICOMAN completed this opticians shop lighting project at 2018 (the client chose to remain anonymous), using our popular Estrella linear lighting system.
More specifically RICOMAN’s Estrella Simplicity surface mounted in rectangle configuration complements the room’s contemporary decoration while providing the correct light levels for people who work in.
The key to a successful lighting for this type of projects is to effectively control glare, to make sure lighting is convenient to people’s eyes that get tested. Not only is Estrella Simplicity designed to control UGR, it can also be offered with an optional low glare diffuser, for excellent glare control results. The CRI exceeds 90 Ra, which is again crucial to facilitate the eye testing procedure and also create the perfect lighting atmosphere to people who visit a retail store.
Estrella Simplicity surface mounted was used in the specific project, but the installation options are countless: Estrella can be surface mounted, suspended (with or without indirect light addition) and recessed.
Anti-microbial coating can also be added, for maximum protection in environments such as an optician shop.
