Carlsbad, CA, May 19, 2020- Bartco Lighting and BIOS Lighting are partnering together to bring simple human-centric lighting solutions to commercial, hospitality and institutional spaces across the U.S. Bartco Lighting is proud to offer Swell – a U.S made, new series of light fixtures that can help improve sleeping patterns, health and well-being.

Swell fixtures are embedded with BIOS SkyBlue® circadian solutions to produce the healthy “blue sky” light signal needed to stimulate human circadian biology. This specific light wavelength communicates directly with human biology to regulate circadian rhythms, encouraging healthier sleep patterns and ultimately, better health.

“Since the day my family founded Bartco Lighting we have known that the most important aspect of our business is to listen to the genuine needs of our customers.  Today I’m happy to announce that Bartco Lighting is partnering with BIOS and will be featuring their SkyBlue® Lighting Solutions as part of our new Swell Series. For those of you that know our brand, you can be sure this is only the beginning and we look forward to future challenges adapting Swell for your projects.”  Brad Barton, Bartco Lighting, Inc.

“We are excited to have Bartco Lighting as part of the BIOS Illuminated program.  As a family-owned, multigenerational company started in 1982, Bartco has always been at the forefront of new technologies and lighting solutions to help their customers Bring Their Vision to Light.  By adding BIOS to their offering, we can now help them Bring Biology to Light and jointly help people live healthier lives with outstanding, made in the USA lighting products.”-Sean Tegart, President and CEO of BIOS Lighting
