BalancedCare by Axis BCUC Undercabinet

Video Transcript

Hey there fellow lighting friends. When you hear the term, healthcare lighting, you may first think of exam room or patient room fixtures as they are typically the most visible and prominent in their respective space, but today, we are taking a closer look at a fixture that plays an equally functional role, but is a bit more discrete, in fact, it’s so thin that it’s nearly invisible. Today, we have the 2-time award winning, BalancedCare by Axis Lighting, undercabinet fixture on hand, and here is what you need to know.

In healthcare applications, focused task lighting is particularly useful above the work surfaces in nurses stations, laboratories, and exam rooms and can greatly improve worker productivity and accuracy. One of our favorite features of this healthcare product is the ability to not only turn the fixture on and off without touching the luminaire, but you can also take advantage of touchless dimming control. Simply hold your hand under the fixture for a set period of time, and the fixture takes care of the rest. This attention to infection control reduces the transfer of germs by minimizing the need to physically touch the product.

The BCUC BalancedCare is available in 6 different lengths, can be connected end-to-end or via a joiner cable for continuous rows, and the CCT can be static or selectable at 2700, 3000, 3500 and 4000 kelvin temperatures to support the circadian cycle of shift workers. The product has a diffuser with a beautiful glow, it eliminates pixelated shadows on the work surface and as we mentioned earlier, the fixture profile is extremely thin, ⅜ of an inch to be exact and the net result is focused task lighting that improves accuracy while reducing eye strain and the fatigue that is commonly associated with detailed tasks.
