Let it shine! Raising SENSO’s Colour Rendering Index
Whether it’s fresh food, fashion choices, splashy art, or eye-catching products, colour is key to so many human experiences. And without light, colour simply can’t exist.
In a way, SENSO is in the business of bringing colours to life. That’s why a fixture’s Colour Rendering Index (CRI) is a key consideration of any project.
CRI is a measurement, on a scale of 1 to 100, of a light’s ability to show colours naturally, allowing the human eye to detect subtle variations. Higher CRI ratings mean that a light is better at rendering colour; lower CRI ratings are cheaper and make colours appear dull or unnatural.
As LED technology improves, expectations rise. As we pride ourselves on being leaders and not laggards, SENSO is standardizing all of our module fixtures (used in the majority of our downlights) to 90 CRI. The usual threshold to be considered a quality product is 83 CRI, but more and more frequently 90 CRI is now considered the minimum.
As we keep up with the latest advances in lighting engineering and design, SENSO can offer exceptional colour quality coupled with the high energy-efficiency of LED lights. With all of our products capable of 90 CRI in a wide array of colour temperatures, we’re ready to find the perfect solution for any project—in full, living colour.
