Lighting Solutions

Comprehensive lighting projects are the most common energy-saving solution for care facilities with good reason. New lighting fixtures and LEDs can dramatically improve the aesthetics of your facility, provide better quality light, visibility, and safety.

High-efficiency lighting fixtures use up to 90% less energy—and money—and controls save you money by automatically turning lights off in unoccupied spaces. Long lasting and shatter resistant, LEDs reduce your ongoing maintenance and replacement costs and lower your energy bills for years.
