Making the step from school to independence in bright surroundings

Scarborough Sixth Form College staff and students can now enjoy brightly-lit areas, thanks to an injection of life by Dextra Lighting products. College lighting has been given a new lease of modern-day life in the cafeteria, library and social area, through products from the Sira, Qel Linear and Solution ranges.
The cafeteria now boasts a Sira suspended continuous luminaire linked with infill spacers. The bi-directional output with an equal fifty percent up/down split also assists with compliance to LG7 guidelines and brings education lighting into the 21st century.
Outdated T12 battens with yellow distorted prismatic diffusers have been replaced with new T5 lighting products from Sira’s range. The low ceiling seating area now boasts Qel 2 surface linears and Solution ECA recessed modulars in the library.
Socialising takes place in a brighter environment thanks to the T5 lighting fixtures offered by Sira continuous suspended lighting. The client selected the product based on its performance and the ability it has to be suspended in between Ecofon acoustic panels.
With approximately 1,100 students aged 16-18, along with mature students, they can each benefit from better lit facilities to enhance their college experience.
The college lighting upgrade has added to the sixth form’s investment in buildings and resources, resulting in a modern university-type feel. The investment in education lighting helps fulfil the college’s vision to serve the community by delivering outstanding educational success and developing the social and personal skills of all their students.
 
Staff and students were absolutely thrilled with the results and the products used to create the transformation.
