Title: The benefits of future-proof tunable white lighting in the classroom

The biggest challenge affecting lighting decisions today is future-proofing. Choices made today will likely be choices that impact the next 20 or perhaps even 40 years. For example, we can expect the best LED lighting available today to maintain 90% of initial light output for 100,000 hours or more. Compare this to a fluorescent lighting system that needs regular maintenance after only 30,000 hours due to lamp burn-outs. The simple act of choosing a LED system over a fluorescent one alone can begin to reduce life cycle costs by saving future maintenance costs. However, the choice of LED over fluorescent is just the beginning. Here, let’s look at other future-proofing decisions that should be considered when choosing your next lighting system.
