About This Webinar

The year 2020 delivered new health and safety concerns regarding the spread of infectious disease. These concerns have prompted a call to action that the design community can answer. This presentation will provide an overview of existing lighting technology and how it can help reduce the spread of infectious disease by minimizing touch in shared spaces, support wayfinding and modified circulation patterns, and reduce stress through visual distraction and color temperature adjustments. The presentation will also delve into ultraviolet light, specifically UV-C, a non-visible wavelength of light (radiant energy) effective in killing bacteria and viruses including coronaviruses.

Agenda
  • Attendees will learn how different lighting control technologies can support touchless environments, physical distancing in shared spaces, and provide cost savings to owners by reducing use.
  • Attendees will learn different lighting design approaches to support wayfinding and modified circulation patterns.
  • Attendees will learn how the color temperature of light can positively impact human wellbeing and research supported approaches to stress reduction.
  • Attendees will understand the value and dangers of UV-C technology and how they can safely implement GUV products into their designs and buildings.
