Ambient or Accent Lighting

Visage is a recessed linear ceiling luminaire with a minimal frame and multiple length options. Specifiers first requested a behavioral health/high abuse version because it is such a fundamental form and can be used throughout the behavioral health/high abuse facility to provide ambient or accent lighting. Where designers would use high abuse troffers or downlights to fill in the light or create rhythm, they can now use Visage.

VISAGE for Behavioral Health/High Abuse

Preventing Psychological Stress and Offering Positive Distraction

Behavioral health/high abuse facilities require fixtures and furnishings to be impact, tamper, and ligature-resistant. It is equally important, however, that design elements contribute to a therapeutic environment. Because of safety requirements and the complexity of light fixture components, specifiers have historically had few design options for these spaces. The luminaires chosen were often meant for correctional facilities and other high abuse areas.

Many experts suggest that a warm, homelike atmosphere with noninstitutional fixtures can prevent psychological stress and offer positive distraction.

However, design priorities have shifted alongside the evolution of behavioral health treatment. In an effort to treat the whole person (not just control their symptoms), behavioral health inpatient care has become focused on patient-centered recovery. Environmental design plays a huge role in that since patients live and recover in these spaces for an average of 7.2 days.
