Behavioral and Mental Healthcare Facility Lighting
Lighting requirements and design in behavioral health facilities provide a safe and secure environment while also contributing to a healthy patient and staff atmosphere. Residents in mental health facilities may have heightened sensitivity to changes in light or the unnatural effects of being exposed to constant artificial light that does not adjust for time of day. It is also important that fixtures in these facilities follow the utmost safety standards to prevent possible harm
Behavioral healthcare lighting fixtures must comply with stringent standards such as tamper-resistant fasteners, anti-ligature designs, gapless installation, dimming requirements, and shatterproof lenses, which maximize safety and comfort for both patients and caregivers within a behavioral health facility.
