light decor that allows you to focus on certain details of the interior, advertising – light boxes, spots and track systems, special lighting installed behind the cornices, along the walls, in showcases.
And now let’s analyze the lamps and their application in more detail.

Suspended chandeliers and track systems illuminate spacious rooms with high ceilings. These are showrooms; rooms for presentations and negotiations; executive offices; rooms where meetings, seminars, brainstorms are held.
Models with diffused light are ideal for creating general lighting. They give light streams directed in all directions, including the ceiling. The efficiency of such devices is maximum, and their glow does not tire and does not blind the eyes. The room is filled with even light, without sharp shadows and transitions, a feeling of freedom and spaciousness is created.
Embedded models are particularly popular. They are practical, easy to install and operate. products that do not overload the electrical network, have high fire safety and low power consumption are suitable for offices.
To provide each employee with an individual light source, office desk lamps are perfect.

Internal electric lighting is organized with the help of different types of lamps. First of all, they are divided into types depending on the installation method:

Invoices. They are fixed to the surface of the ceiling and walls, therefore they are ceiling or wall mounted. Suitable for the organization of general and local lighting.
Suspended. They are installed using cable suspensions attached to the ceiling. Due to this, the lamps can be placed at different levels from the floor. This is convenient for high ceilings, as well as, if necessary, to organize local (local) lighting of the workplace.
Embedded. They are integrated into ceilings, furniture elements, holes in walls. Such lamps are used for both general and accent lighting in order to emphasize certain details, for example, beautiful architectural elements.
Track. A special type of lamps placed on the busbar. They are convenient because they easily adapt to the change of the interior. This is especially convenient at trade facilities, where there is often a change in the exposition of goods.
Indoor lighting often includes several types of lamps. More functionality can be achieved through brightness and color control systems: dimmers and controllers. The main thing is to purchase dimmable lamps that allow you to change the amount of illumination.
