Replacement Fluorescent Light Covers
NaturaLux replacement fluorescent light covers from Make Great Light can help eliminate many of the problems this kind of lighting can create. They can reduce eyestrain and fatigue, and could also reduce the frequency of migraine attacks. By simulating natural sunlight – without the negative effects of ultraviolet radiation – NaturaLux filters can help you not only improve the way you feel, but also increase your productivity.
Once you see the benefits of fluorescent light covers, you might wonder why you didn’t install them in your home or office earlier. These are just a few of the advantages you might want to consider.
Full Spectrum Light
Human beings weren’t meant to be inside all day under artificial lighting. We were designed to be outside, in the natural sunlight. But for most of us who need to make a living, it’s obviously not practical.
But NaturaLux light covers bring that natural sunlight inside. They provide what is known as “full spectrum lighting,” the kind of light you get from the sun. This is very important for a lot of reasons, including the following.
- Better sleep – Full spectrum lighting helps the body’s internal clock – known as the circadian rhythm, work the way it should. Your circadian rhythm tells you when it’s time to go to bed and it’s time to wake up. It plays a role in producing a hormone known as melatonin, which helps you get to sleep.
- Improved mood – When people are exposed to fluorescent lighting all day, that can raise the levels of cortisol, which is also referred to as the “stress hormone.” Reducing that exposure could help put you in a better frame of mind.
- Vision benefits – Fluorescent lighting can produce a lot of glare, which can lead to a great deal of eyestrain. Full spectrum lighting not only reduces glare, it also helps the pupils constrict. This can significantly improve your visual acuity, helping reduce eye fatigue in the process.
Blocking Ultraviolet Radiation
Fluorescent lights emit ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Over time, this can cause major problems. It can make your skin age prematurely, weaken your immune system, and even cause cataracts.
NaturaLux fluorescent light covers block UV radiation, making your indoor environment much safer as a result.
Save Money By Increasing Productivity
For many people, sitting under fluorescent lighting hour after hour, day after day can make them tired. As you learned earlier, fluorescent lighting can disrupt the body’s circadian rhythm, making it harder to sleep. Tired employees are unproductive employees – and, in many instances, absentee employees. If you can’t sleep, there’s no way you can be your best in the office. You might not even be able to show up.
But insomnia isn’t the only potential negative health effect of fluorescent lighting. It also contributes to headaches – even migraine attacks. One of the reasons why is that fluorescent lights flicker. While the human eye can’t usually notice this flickering, it can trigger an attack. This, of course, can make it impossible to function at work or in school.
Installing NaturaLux filters can reduce fatigue and headaches, making for happier, much more productive workers.
