Easy to use controls allow this balance of ultra cool and warmer light to be adjusted automatically or manually throughout the day. Used with a wall mounted scene plate three preset scenes can be stored and recalled, while the light intensity (level) and balance (direct/indirect) can also be adjusted.
In this way, MenloSoft SR Dual Colour creates a stimulating visual working environment. It brings the outside inside by mimicking daylight patterns over time. It caters for personal preferences as the user can adjust the light to their mood. Above all it create atmospheres with warm and cool spaces.
There is a choice of models: 600 x 600mm with 3 x 24W T16 lamps or 300 x 1200mm with 3 x 54W T16 lamps. The optic has a low glare louvre, flanked by micro-perforated wings, which enables areas with display screens to be lit without the need for any additional luminaires.
Thorn continues to monitor research into the long-term effects of blue light on people in workplaces, including its own in-house studies. These will yield valuable and reliable assurance on the appropriateness of blue light in the workplace and are expected during the middle of 2008.
