With a pure, luminous diffuser, multiple length options, and a shallow recessed depth, Visage is a fundamental ceiling luminaire that fits anywhere throughout the behavioral health/high abuse facility. Visage can be used to fill general spaces with ambient light or in rhythmic, linear arrangements on the ceiling or wall.
The Visage Behavioral Health Lights can be finished in our Non-VOC powder coat colors and Impact Resistant Polycarbonate.
Experts suggest that a warm, homelike atmosphere with non-institutional fixtures can prevent psychological stress and offer positive distraction.
Behavioral health/high abuse facilities require fixtures and furnishings to be impact, tamper, and ligature-resistant. It is equally important 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.
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 recovery time, as patients live and recover in these spaces for an average of 7.2 days.
