GLG proudly offers CELLITE®, a range of luminaries that are tested to have appropriate IP rating, impact resistance and high-quality standards for Australian prisons. The range includes recessed fittings, surface mount fittings, surface mount bed light and an emergency exit luminaire, representing an overall solution for Australian correctional facilities.
Recent years have seen Australian adult prisoner numbers continue to rise – with the number of prisoners in adult corrective services custody increasing year on year.
Lighting solutions for correctional facilities must balance effectiveness and efficiency with intelligent design to ensure that luminaires provide proper illumination, are easy to install and maintain, and are tamper proof to eliminate the possibility of lights being used to conceal contraband materials. Additionally, the effect of light and colour on behavior modification is stipulated as one of the over-arching design factors in Australia’s correctional facilities.
As research strengthens the connection between environmental light levels and wellbeing, we can see that compared to other facility investments to enhance the physical and mental state of humans, lighting is often a small change that can produce a positive effect.
