MHA Lighting Creates LED Lighting System for Hospital
Aug 30, 2011
MHA Lighting Ltd, an LED specialist based in the UK, has revealed a new lighting system aimed at hospitals in an effort to open a new market for its creations.
A leader in LED lighting, MHA is currently focused on NHS Trusts which are looking for a lighting product that reduces hospital acquired infection rates. The design of MHA's patented LED technology achieves this by turning the light into a fully seated unit, which prevents dust and bacteria from "gathering around warm light fitting and spreading deadly superbugs."
Added bonuses offered by LEDs are long life span and associated low maintenance; in MHA's case these LEDs last for 60,000 hours (about seven years). The LEDs are also energy-efficient even when compared to traditional fluorescents, burning 20% of the amount of energy. In moments when the government is pressuring the NHS to reduce carbon emission, "more energy-efficient lighting is paramount in saving money and reducing a trust's carbon footprint," points out Tom Harrison, managing director of MHA.
The MHA design also prevents harsh lighting quality, creating an even and distributed tone, to make patients comfortable and doctors' jobs easier. Whatever is saved on energy costs helps the hospital too because it goes right back to the clinic.
MHA lighting has also been installed in Manchester Airport and is expected to save £80,000 a year in electrical costs.
