Comfort and convenience of modern apartment depends on the lighting. In addition to natural lighting, a great role in this belongs to artificial lighting. Correct lighting is not only coziness and comfort, it is the appropriate atmosphere in your home, the optimal conditions for work and rest, a good mood. To create artificial lighting apply lamps of various types and different functional purposes. With the help of lamps you can give the interior of the room a peculiar style and appearance.
Modern ceiling lamps have different functions, in addition to the main task of lighting, because different models have different technical parameters. Accordingly, there are no universal light sources. This explains the large selection of models on the market.
Ceiling fixtures: what is it
In order to ensure good lighting in the room, it is customary to use ceiling lamps, which consist of two elements: an electric bulb and fittings intended for connection and fixation. Lighting fixtures, in which the fixture is fixed directly to the ceiling surface, are called ceiling fixtures. Such products are ideal for rooms with low ceilings and small rooms.
Ceiling fixtures: types of lighting
According to the type of construction and method of installation, the ceiling luminaire is divided into:
Suspended ceiling lamp is optimally suited for lighting in rooms with a large area. When installing it, you need to leave a small distance from the ceiling surface. Products of this type include hangers and multi-lamp chandeliers.
Overhead options are installed directly to the ceiling. To these can be attributed various small plafonds. Ceiling lamps of this type are in most cases designed for rooms with a small area: for the corridor, bathroom or toilet.
A recessed ceiling luminaire can be found in suspended or stretched ceilings. They are also often installed in furniture or decor items. They emphasize the interior design and create the effect of harmony.
Increasingly, spots are used – metal structures in which halogen lamps are mounted, capable of rotating in any direction. This ceiling lamp is simply fixed to the ceiling surface. These ceiling lamps can be bought to easily direct the flow of light to any point of the room.
Ceiling luminaire and its functions
The main functions that modern ceiling lamps perform are as follows:
Coverage of the entire room;
Illumination of the working area of the room (directed models);
Decoration of various elements of decoration (design element).
All ceiling luminaires installed in the premises must fully comply with their specificity:
To ensure the normal life of people who are in this room for a long time;
Correspond to the parameters required for the qualitative implementation of the production process;
Perform specific functions. These include the function of protection. For example, the solution can be used to design a “smart house” system and is called “presence effect”.
Production ceiling lamps
Ceiling fixtures that are installed in industrial workshops or warehouses are prone to an increased risk of failure prematurely for such reasons as moisture and dust entering the device or mechanical impact. Accordingly, the design of such products must have dust and moisture protection functions, and the protective surface of luminaires must be shockproof. In order to protect the glass elements of the luminaire from mechanical damage, use a special protective plastic or metal grille.
