Carlsbad, CA, April 12, 2022 – BIOS Lighting welcomes OCL Architectural Lighting to the BIOS Illuminated™ Program. OCL Architectural Lighting expands the BIOS Illuminated product offering, allowing specifiers to choose from a strong portfolio of specification-grade architectural and decorative LED luminaires that include BIOS SkyBlue™ Technology.
BIOS SkyBlue is a patented LED circadian lighting solution that produces the healthy “blue sky” light signal needed to stimulate human circadian biology. This specific light wavelength (490nm) communicates directly with human biology through a non-visual photoreceptor to regulate circadian rhythms, providing healthier sleep patterns and ultimately, better health.
The program trains lighting professionals to become Certified Circadian Auditors as well as offering complimentary Circadian Audits for any indoor space.
“We are excited OCL Architectural Lighting has joined the BIOS Illuminated Partner Program and are proud to help expand their human-centric product offering. This partnership leverages OCL’s high quality luminaires with the naturally brilliant performance of BIOS SkyBlue LED Solutions,” said Sean Tegart, CEO and President of BIOS Lighting. “With BIOS, OCL expands their product offering to include industry-leading circadian lighting solutions, creating significant impact in the way people live and work.”
The new OCL + BIOS portfolio includes pendant, sconce, ceiling, and outdoor fixtures available for a diverse array of architectural projects.
“At OCL, we’re committed to sustainable lighting solutions that enable high performance buildings and transform how people live and work,” said Brad Glotfelty, Marketing Manager at OCL. “With our new partnership with BIOS, we can continue to create lighting that not only elevates experiences, but health and wellbeing too.”
