Decorative fluorescent lighting covers are designed to adhere to fluorescent light panels. The covers reduce glare and offer a more relaxing atmosphere in hospital rooms and wards. While fluorescent lighting is commonly used in hospitals, schools and even in the home, the light they offer tends to be very harsh.
In fact, fluorescent lighting is known to be one of the harshest forms of lighting to the eyes, although it also amongst the cheapest. Some people cover the brightly lit panels generally used to diffuse the harsh light with colored film or even loosely woven sheer fabrics that permit a high degree of transparency.
Blue Sky and Clouds
Far better, however, are decorative fluorescent lighting covers that display attractive patterns, such as stained glass effects or natural themes. One extremely popular style of fluorescent light cover comes in the form of blue sky and clouds. To a hospital patient looking up at these, it appears as though they were observing a summer sky through a skylight.
Another version of this is a view of the night sky. Astronomy photographs can be reproduced on fluorescent lighting covers to provide a view of the Milky Way: individual constellations, whole sections of the night sky or even views of distant galaxies and nebulae photographed from outside earth’s atmosphere.
The Hubble Telescope and Decorative Fluorescent Lighting Covers
From there, there is no glare of street lighting to obscure many of the fainter stars, and out in space, devoid of atmosphere, the stars and galaxies look much brighter than they do from earth. We are licensed by NASA to reproduce some of the amazing images taken by the Hubble telescope. You don’t get more dramatic yet relaxing than that!
When used on the fluorescent lighting covers on hospital ceilings, these images are not only breathtaking but also very soothing. They can help reduce the stress of seriously ill people, or those recovering from illness or surgical procedures. Harsh lighting does not help such people to relax, but a view of distant galaxies is more tension-relieving than most people might believe.
Not just these, but sunsets, ocean views, golden beaches, flowers, trees and other natural themes are all available as motifs for fluorescent light panels. They are calming, soothing and relaxing to look at, and help to reduce anxiety and fear for the future. Using decorative fluorescent lighting covers in hospitals will not only provide your lighting with a unique look, but also offer a relaxed and benign atmosphere for your patients.
