Lighting is one of the first things people will see when entering a room. Where lighting is placed and how bright or dim can set the entire mood of room and people won’t even realise it. Visualite, helps to create an amazing lighting effect and ambience by incorporating a light source and a bespoke image into one. In this article we will be looking at how Visualite works, why we recommend Visualite, and finally, showing some case studies of how Visualite has helped businesses. 

What is Visualite?

Visualite systems are used to create an amazing lighting effect and ambience for your workers, customers, and patients. These systems are designed to help set the tone of the room and is mainly used to help calm people down, or to highlight specific areas of a room to showcase something to individuals. 

Not only do we use high-definition imagery to make our lighting pop. We can also incorporate your own images and artwork to provide a more personalised and unique product for the customer.

What is it used for?

 A Visualite system is able to provide a pleasant and powerful impact in any of these environments:

  • Hospital / medical environments – Is there to help provide clear lighting for wards and waiting areas but can help calm and soothe patients whilst going through a procedure. 
  • Commercial offices – For commercial offices, often they can contain dead space, such as wall breaks to reduce noise. This is the perfect areas to implement Visualite systems to help avoid the risk of poor lighting. They can also include imagery of city skylines or of relevant photography. 
  • Education – For educational purposes, we can use Visualite to create a theme for specific rooms to help engage students using visual stimuli. 
  • Boardrooms – Visualite, will help to add depth and warmth to any boardroom and can help to create a talking point in every meeting. 
  • Retail and leisure – Can help to showcase specific products and ranges, while the soft lighting can help reduce light glare in comparison to other types of lighting. Using high quality images, we can grab the customers attention and highlight what category of products are available in that section.
  • Car showrooms – Can be used as spotlights for cars to help highlight specific areas of the vehicle.
  • Sports stadiums – Visualite will help you to highlight key moments in history of the club giving your fans insight into important parts of the club’s history which they may or not have been apart of.  
  • Homes – Visualite can help you turn your favourite or family art pieces and turn them into high-definition wall art.

It is important to note that Visualite isn’t just limited to these environments and has no real limit to where they can be used.

Case Studies

As mentioned above, we have installed Visualite lighting panels in both Barnsley and Rotherham hospital to help improve their interior and create a more calming and positive atmosphere for patients. We conducted surveys at each hospital following the installation of Visualite panels. Here are the results of the surveys:

Barnsley Hospital

Barnsley Hospital selected a series of natural landscape panels. The results showed:

  • 85% of people asked (including staff and patients) stated that the visual lighting display makes the area feel more welcoming.
  • 83% of patients asked stated that the visual lighting display made the environment more pleasant and relaxing.
  • 75% of people asked (including hospital staff and patients) said that the visual lighting display improves the mood of the environment.
  • 63.5% of patients asked stated that the visual lighting display helped them to relax prior to their surgery.

Rotherham Hospital chose a range of LED sky panels, natural landscapes, and cartoon character panels for their children department. The results showed:

  • 100% of people asked (including hospital staff and patients) agree that Visualite helped to brighten up the clinical area.
  • 95% of people asked (including hospital staff and patients) believed that the Visualite LED sky panels generated a sense of calm.
  • 59% of patients asked stated that the Visualite LED sky panels distracted of them during their medical procedure.
  •  80% of patients asked believed that the Visualite LED sky panels enhanced the patient experience and improved the healing environment. 

We also received quotes from staff members about Visualite.

“We had four Visualite tiles on trial in the CT scan department. Often some patients, both children and adults, are frightened and need some reassurance that we understand theirs fears.

The tiles picture is a blue sky with beautiful clouds that one could get lost within, promoting a relaxing mood.

Enhancing any environment is not only about bricks and mortar changes. It’s about the use of colour, light and texture – the possibilities are endless, and we can really make a difference together.”

Helen Green, Head of Nursing – Operation, The Rotherham NHS Foundation

“The Critical Care Team word hard to provide high quality care and the best environment for our patients while they are requiring treatment. The families of our patients spend a lot of time with us and a large amount of this is spent in the relative’s room and on our corridor. They are understandably distressed and anxious.

We wanted to change the dark, dull, and unwelcoming corridor into a bright, uplifting, and serene space where relatives can appreciate the quiet time they need when their loved ones are ill.

I’m sure that changing our surroundings in such a creative and thoughtful way will have a big impact on the wellbeing of our patients and their families. 

Janet Lockwood, Ward Manager for ITU and HDU

“We have received very positive feedback from our radiology department. 

Patients with dementia are often frightened to have scans, especially MRI scans. Feedback is that since the Visualite panels have been in place compliance of using the large machines is much better. Patients appear calmer and less agitated, they look at the panels which often evoke memories of their past, very soothing.”

Anita Ruckledge, Dementia Lead Nurse – The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals, NHS Trust
