Public lighting and well-being

Gone are the days when only on nights with a full moon and clear skies people could safely venture into the night without carrying a mobile light source.

Today, taking advantage of the knowledge accumulated over more than a century (since the invention of electricity) and its application in the fields of technology, public lighting is a fundamental instrument in the quality of life of citizens. More than a guarantor of the safety of users of public spaces – the first motive for the development of its technical foundation and for its methodical planning – public lighting makes it possible to extend many of the day-to-day experiences into the night.

These experiences, however, then take on a new dimension, as quality public lighting gives them an added beauty through aesthetics, the volume of light and shadows and the selective highlighting of the added value of each space, creating scenarios where the citizen is an actor who can safely rehearse his life.

There is no sustainable urbanism without public lighting.

The recognized quality of Lightenjin’s public lighting systems has effective consequences in improving a city’s image, boosting its tourism, stimulating its commerce, capitalizing on confidence in its nighttime leisure and prioritizing public roads, for example, while creating identity, always with high standards of energy efficiency and reduced maintenance needs, thus contributing to the sustainable development of the communities that benefit from them.

Lightenjin public lighting solutions mobilize the most recent knowledge of new LED technologies, following the current precepts that allow to combine, with safety and urbanism already mentioned, other essential aspects of quality standards such as visual comfort, control of the luminous flux according to needs at any given moment, as well as improving the direction of this flow, minimizing waste and light pollution.
In these current precepts, Lightenjin highlights the physiological response to light, an issue that directly influences the well-being of users, minimizing the impacts of artificial light on human health, without neglecting, however, the importance of correct color rendering in the appropriate contexts.

The new public lighting systems can also provide new services, where each luminaire has a unique identification and is integrated into an intelligent network that manages lighting, such as luminous flux variation, fault detection, predictive maintenance and biodynamic control of the temperature of color.
