Energy savings = central
Everybody has different theories and methods considering how to save energy efficiently. Dimming is one option. Another option is to turn off every other or every third luminaire. The latter option is nothing that we at PrismaTibro would recommend, since it can be perceived unsafe. We work with traffic safety on a daily basis – both through our luminaires and our pedestrian signals. With our background and knowledge, we find it quite risky to turn off luminaires. What would happen if there was an accident, and it turned out that one or multiple luminaires were turned off at the site?
– From a safety perspective, dimming is the better option. You will get a more even light. Otherwise, the eye must continuously adapt to the new lighting, since it’s shifting from light do dark, states Malin Buss, CEO at Prisma Tibro and Product Manager for Prisma Light.
