This Factfile gives the reader an insight into the colour shift and efficiency problems that can be encountered when choosing an inte-grated lighting and cooling solution for an office development. Lamps and LED arrays are designed to give their optimum output and stated colour temperature at a given at-mospheric temperature. If lamps are cooled below this temperature, their colour will shift and their and their output will change. This can result in the lighting installation deliver-ing below its design intentions.
