Thorn Lighting offers illuminating bedhead solution

Thorn Lighting has announced its new Cavell luminaire bedhead illumination system.

Cavell luminaire provides low glare and soft lighting, allowing for both optimal rest and accurate observation in social care and healthcare settings.

A downlight function provides comfortable lighting for residents throughout the day and makes examination and observational checks easier. Any direct glare is minimal. Due to its tailored beam angle, the bedhead will not disturb any resident directly opposite.

The uplight ensures that residents and staff can safely move around the room. Cavell uses twin drivers to control the up and downlight separately. This dual control can be operated from a nursing station as well as the resident’s bedside.

The system also offers a discrete, low-level, dimmed ‘reading mode’.

Cavell was designed to ensure that the stringent cleaning procedures required in a care environment can be carried out easily. The steel body and two opal diffuser panels are seamless, with no gaps or exposed screws for germs or dirt to accumulate. The luminaire’s flat surfaces promote a straightforward wipe-clean routine, and the pure white paint finish highlights any dirt.

Thorn’s Jon Lim, product manager for UK & Ireland, said: “The Cavell bedhead luminaire was designed with patient comfort and hygiene as a priority. The optical design combines the latest LED technology with the innovative use of reflectors and diffusers. This offers the correct lux levels with a very low glare making the patients’ lighting experience on the ward/suite as comfortable as possible. The steel body and opal diffusers are designed specifically with no hidden dust or bacteria trap, making it easy to clean and therefore maintaining the highest hygiene standards.”
