Good lighting in the corridor

The light in the corridor should not dazzle the patient being moved in their bed even though much of the staff’s work is actually carried out here. For the staff, it is important to have relatively high light levels so that they can see what is in front of them in the corridor; at least 200 lux is generally required on the floor. A vertical light that gives a sense of space gives good light without glare, aiding vision.

Sektor in the corner between the ceiling and wall shred the light indirectly against the walls and ceiling while also being well shielded lengthways. Pleiad Wallwasher can be installed against the opposite wall to increase the vertical light. 


Notor Opal Dropped installed in formations provides both light and orientation by highlighting doors to patient rooms. Pleiad Wallwasher can be installed against the opposite wall for a high proportion of vertical light.


Consider this

Vertical light 

If ceiling luminaires are used, they should be positioned against the wall, partly out of consideration for the patient in terms of uncomfortable glare, and partly to create light walls in the corridor to increase the proportion of ambient light.


In the corridor, time control that reduces the light to a low basic level is normally used during the night, supplemented with presence control to achieve more light when there is movement in the corridor. If colour temperature control is also possible, this is of course the best option.
