Fluorescent light covers are ideal for school and kindergarten decor because they can have a quadruple purpose. Not only do they diffuse the harsh light from fluorescent or LED light sources, but they are also decorative and instructive. Add to these the calming effect sky & cloud panels can have on kids, and you have four ways in which you can justify their use.
Let’s look at each of these in turn in terms of both schools and kindergartens:
Fluorescent Light Covers and Light Diffusion
Both fluorescent and LED light sources are harsh. They are glaring, garish and can hurt the eyes, particularly over the period of a full school day. You can also get flicker from fluorescent lights that can be disturbing to photosensitive epileptics and those subject to migraines. Fluorescent light covers can reduce the flicker and also the harshness of the light. Many designs will produce a less harsh light that still offers adequate illumination.
Calming Effect of Sky & Cloud Panels
Some children can get very excitable, particularly in harsh lighting conditions. It has been found that sky & cloud panels can help reduce this. Sky & cloud panels offer a view of a sunny day, with delicate, fluffy cumulus clouds taken from a real photograph. The photo is printed onto a light plastic frame that fits over standard fluorescent light panels.
With some sky & cloud panels it is possible to use a number of these covers printed with individual matching photographs of a large scene together to offer an integrate view of the sky. Alternatively, a view of the night sky can be used – in fact, you can use both together.
Two sets of lights can be individually wired so the teacher can switch between daylight scenes and views of the stars and constellations. Such views help children to remain calm, particularly those susceptible to effects of bright and harsh fluorescent lights. The teacher has control over the lighting, and can also use both for educational purposes.
Instructive Kindergarten Decor
Scenes of the night sky can be used in kindergarten decor. These not only fascinate young children, but are also instructive for young minds. Teachers can point out how specific star groups are known as constellations. Night sky & cloud panels can be used to explain to young children what stars really are a how far away they are. This is a good age to introduce kids to astronomy, while they are receptive to new ideas.
The Decorative Elements of Fluorescent Light Covers
Fluorescent panels are available in more than just views of the day and night sky. They show waterfalls so realistic that your first reaction is to duck to avoid all that water. Nature scenes include floral photographs, trees, beaches and how would like to meet a beautiful sunset every time you switched on the lights in your bedroom
Fluorescent light covers in school and kindergarten decor have many uses in addition to just being decorative. By taking advantages of the above practical applications of sky & cloud panels and other scenes and features, it is possible to calm pupils and entertain as well as educate children of all ages.
