Of all the issues a luminaire has to deal with in a health care environment- no dirt build up, ability to be cleaned with chemicals, no glare for patients in a supine position- perhaps the one that is often overlooked is the fact that they must run incredibly long periods day in and day out. As our health care sector gets ever more stretched, our facilities are open longer and longer, which places temperature and longevity issues on lighting manufacturers. Good manufacturers are, of course, aware of these demands and it is why Southern Lighting couldn’t be happier to have supplied Eagle Lighting product through the medical areas of the Wellington Centre in Hobart. Every Eagle product undergoes extensive in-house testing at a state of the art facility based in Tullamarine, Victoria. When combined with the global knowledge of the Fagerhult Group, the results are products that are physically and thermally built to last the test of time – ultimately delivering total piece of mind for the client.
Also featured in the medical areas are examination lights by MSL. Another proudly Australian designed and manufactured product these operate via a counterbalanced arm. This ensures total flexibility to the medical staff without the normal associated issues of wearing springs or tension arms for a practically maintenance free life.
