Add to the mix the increased importance for energy efficient spaces that focus on comfort and low running costs, and you start to bring together a complete room or building solution. There are many types of classroom, and the requirements change often based on the age, ability and particular needs of the students.
Product considerations for classroom areas:
When looking at the lighting control for a classroom, one solution does not fit all. There are numerous considerations to be aware of for each level of education with guidelines set by the Department for Education (DfE). The DfE sets out the requirements that enable the developer to achieve the recommended standards. There is also the need to design an installation that meets the needs of the end user, this is covered by BREEAM. This may therefore mean that the DfE guidelines are the minimum level that a facility is looking for. Individual education authorities will also have their own additional standards that will need to be covered, discussed and satisfied.
Powering each classroom
The need for flexible power distribution solutions within classrooms is a key consideration. With each classroom potentially having multipurpose use, and sometimes even changing purpose completely more than once a year, the power distribution to each space must be as flexible as possible. Legrand offers various solutions from plug and play low and medium power busbar to underfloor power track.
Comfortable working spaces
With classrooms often being utilised for multiple different activities it is important that the space is comfortable whatever the task. Our workstation power solutions can offer flexibility to power equipment needed within a workstation whilst remaining discreet and out of the way when no longer needed. Dynamic monitor arms for computer monitors also offer the flexibility to be moved into place when needed and out of the way when not.
Comfort and well-being in becoming an increasingly important requirement when designing an education facility. The more the building can support functional learning the better the experience students will have.
