School lighting

High-quality lighting solutions for professional use


High-quality illuminance and sufficient colour rendering help students stay alert and improve concentration and focus.

School children and students spend the most of their day indoors and the quality of their learning environment is important. This highlights the need for a proper lighting solution. High-quality illuminance and sufficient colour rendering help students stay alert and improve concentration and focus.

Schools have a variety of different spaces, and lighting recommendations exist for each separate type of space. In many schools, spaces are multifunctional. For example, the indoor lighting standard recommends a light level of 100 lux for school corridors. However, if the corridors are used as teaching facilities when necessary, a light level of 300 lux is recommended. In classrooms, the recommendation of 300 lux is increased to 500 lux if the space is used, for example, for evening classes for adults as well. People of different ages have different requirements for illuminance, and the lighting that is best for growing children is very different from the lighting most suitable for adults or the elderly. In addition, glare-prevention is important in classrooms and lecture halls (UGR≤19)

Our selection includes several suitable options for school lighting, for example the Uniqa series, Beat or Cindy luminaires equipped with high-quality LED light sources. The Game luminaires with ball-proof protective grids are suitable for use in sports facilities.


If we haven’t convinced you on the superiority of our LED solutions, would you believe our very satisfied customers?

We renewed the lighting in several schools, kindergartens and sports facilities. Old fluorescent lamps were replaced with LED tubes in existing luminaires. As a result, the amount of light increased and we have saved energy from the first minute.
- Marita Tamminen, Energy efficiency expert, City of Vantaa, Finland
Energy efficiency of our lighting has exceeded the suppliers’ calculations meaning much faster than expected payback time and significantly improved Return on Investment (ROI).
- Rauno Karjalainen, Director of the Technical Department, Lapland Hospital, Finland
The comprehensive lighting renovation carried out by Valtavalo in our production facilities brought significant energy savings as well as easy maintenance.
- Jan Persson, Orkla Foods Sverige AB, Kungshamn, Sweden
At Postnord's facility in Rosersberg, Stockholm, the whole area of 50,000 m2 is illuminated with Valtavalo solutions. The goal was to have a maintenance-free and flexible solution with replaceable light source, where the lighting can be adjusted over time, without having to replace entire luminaires.
- Nils-Olov Persson, PostNord Fastigheter, Sweden
We are very happy with the brighter store. In addition to saving energy, the Finnish high-quality LED tubes have reduced the need for lighting maintenance.
- Hannu Tauriainen, Prisma Hypermarket, Hollola, Finland
It’s great that we were able to make use of our existing luminaires and still improve the amount of light and reduce energy consumption. We have also received a lot of positive feedback on the new lighting in our tennis arena from our customers. We could not be more satisfied!
- Magnus Lassi, Sportarenan AB, Gothenburg, Sweden
The goal was to save energy and increase the amount of light. We replaced about 7000 fluorescent tubes with 6000 Valtavalo LED tubes, and the work environment has become brighter for everyone.
