For any lighting manufacturer, no matter what lighting product being made, it is important for those products to be shown in actual applications, so as to offer contractors, specifiers and clients with an insight into how the lighting equipment can be specified within any commercial installation being proposed. To that end, Ansell Lighting have taken several fittings from the extensive portfolio, ideally suited to general commercial applications and installed them throughout the corporate offices, allowing visitors a true visual interpretation of the equipment in use and how the light produced creates the optimum working environment in respect of performance and energy efficiency, as well as being aesthetically pleasing for the user.
