Lighting for Behavioral Health
Many healthcare facilities contain patient rooms specifically designed for patients exhibiting unpredictable and sometimes destructive behavior. Anti‑ligature lighting design removes hard edges and corners from the design, thereby reducing the opportunity for self-harm.
Lighting for these spaces must be sufficiently robust to withstand abuse, while still providing maximum visibility, wayfinding, glare reduction, and the use of controls to support mental health and wellness. Tamper proof light fixtures are also recommended to ensure the safety and security of patients and staff.
