Lighting for Educational Facilites
Delivering a better learning experience through lighting
Lighting in today’s educational facilities goes beyond the classroom. From lecture halls and corridors to gymnasiums and parking lots, Williams offers the full lighting package.
Proper illumination improves student performance, increases alertness and enhances overall well-being. With a vast product portfolio including dynamic lighting and connectivity solutions, our luminaires are engineered to meet the most demanding environments and designed to deliver a personalized level of light control.
Lighting can be a significant portion of a school’s operating expense. Reduce maintenance costs and maximize energy savings using LED products with integrated controls from Williams.
Dining & Common Areas
Creating an inviting atmosphere in the heart of the school.
Welcome students and visitors by promoting the school brand with tunable lighting while enhancing the architectural details.
For areas such as cafeterias with lofty ceilings, high-performance recessed fixtures deliver ample illumination and are not an obstruction to the space.
Easily control the lighting, gather desired data and minimize energy consumption using Williams Power over Ethernet lighting.
Enriching student learning experiences.
While still centered around reading and learning, modern school libraries also serve as creative spaces, computer labs and club meeting rooms.
Suspended luminaires from Williams adequately and uniformly illuminate bookshelves from top to bottom while making an architectural statement.
Recessed fixtures are a more traditional option to provide comfortable, glare-free lighting in study areas.
For quiet reading spaces, choose from a broad selection of 2, 4, 6, and 8 inch downlights with dim-to-warm technology to create a calm, relaxing ambience.
Encouraging improved student performance.
Quality LED illumination improves academic performance, enhances student comfort and reduces eye fatigue by eliminating flicker, glare and fixture noise, while appropriate LED color temperatures can affect mood and focus.
Tailor the learning environment to the needs of the class and boost student engagement by selecting tunable white products connected via PoE.
Tunable white and PoE are available in nearly all recessed, suspended, surface and downlight product lines from Williams.
Auditorium & Lecture Halls
Presenting the audience with a welcoming atmosphere.
Auditoriums have unique performance lighting and schedule control requirements. High-output downlighting with dimming features works well for general illumination. PoE connectivity is a smart way to fully automate the lighting.
Adequate illumination is critical in large spaces with high ceilings such as lecture halls. Bring style and function to these key areas by using continuous linear product to create a contemporary look or choose designer cylinders for an industrial flair.
Meeting the demanding requirements of multipurpose environments.
Enhance and set the tone for entryways and concessions with architectural suspended and recessed solutions from Williams. Use dynamic lighting to easily transition from a high-energy atmosphere like a sporting event to a prestigious environment such as a graduation.
Rugged, shatter-resistant, high-output LED high bays from Williams withstand the rough and tumble nature of athletic events, while uplighting, dimming protocols and connectivity solutions provide a softer ambiance to set the scene for ceremonies and social gatherings.
Corridors & Stairways
Promoting feelings of safety and security.
Faculty and students feel safer in well-lit areas. Continuous LED lighting products in ambient, perimeter and cove configurations from Williams provide seamless illumination along the entire corridor, eliminating dark spots and shadows.
Dimming protocols, coupled with occupancy and daylight sensors, save energy and deliver optimum light levels. As corridors and stairwells are frequented less, lights automatically dim, then transition seamlessly to higher lumens as one enters the space. Energy savings are realized without compromising safety and security.
Office & Administrative
Stimulating thought and promoting clear decision making.
Preparing academic curriculum for students requires concentration and focus. Service school faculty by using fixtures that deliver uniform, glare-free illumination such as recessed luminaires from Williams.
Personalize the lighting in office spaces with fieldseleCCT®. An innovative solution from Willilams, fieldseleCCT allows the end-user to choose a desired color temperature with its built-in fixture switch.
Ensuring safety for students, faculty and visitors.
Well-marked exits and emergency backup lighting is necessary to maintain the safety of students, visitors and faculty.
Williams emergency and exit signs meet UL 924, NFPA Life Safety Code, NEC, OSHA, and local and state codes. Bright and evenly-illuminated signs provide excellent visibility from multiple locations within an area. Create custom messaging for precise wayfinding or important messages throughout the facility.
Nearly all Williams fixtures are designed with an emergency battery backup option to keep necessary lights on when the power goes out. Obtain peace of mind with battery backup providing 90 minutes of emergency operation and a rechargeable fully automatic solid-state system.
Creating welcoming first impressions.
A school’s exterior lighting serves as a beacon – welcoming visitors, providing safe passage to and from parking lots and highlighting architectural details.
Williams exterior LED lighting solutions are elegantly designed to accent buildings and blend seamlessly with the surrounding environment.
Our high-performance, energy-efficient luminaires are built for durability and ease of installation.
Illuminate pathways with step lighting and bollards to promote wayfinding. Use flood lights to highlight signage and area lights to provide ample illumination along driveways and parking areas.
Enabling smart building automation.
Optimize light levels, maximize energy savings, and manage dynamic lighting by utilizing LED luminaires in conjunction with Williams Connectivity Solutions. Centrally controlled networks, such as PoE, use single, converged IP networked lighting to automate separate building systems into one easily controlled solution.
Intelligent systems allow devices such as wireless door locks, surveillance cameras and interactive learning tools, such as whiteboards and projectors to be connected and controlled together. The solution also has remote monitoring capabilities for power failures and, in emergency situations, can serve as a beacon to guide students and staff safely out of harm’s way. Improve academics and productivity for students, faculty and visitors by using networked lighting to easily modify dynamic lighting, dimming controls and sensors across the facility simultaneously.
