Kenall Partners with NASA Spinoff BIOS for New, Biologic Circadian LED Lighting Option

gbafNews28

KENOSHA, Wis., Jan. 31, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Today, Kenall debuted a new circadian lighting option from BIOS: SkyBlue™, a proprietary circadian solution designed by NASA to promote better sleep, better energy, and better health.

BIOS SkyBlue is a unique, biologic solution that works by using a “sky blue” (490nm) wavelength, which is found in daylight but is missing from most traditional LED lighting systems. SkyBlue 490nm communicates directly with the human body via non-visual photoreceptors in the eye, known as ipRGCs (photosensitive retinal ganglion cells).

ipRGCs contain melanopsin, a protein, which, when stimulated by light, sends a signal to the body to reset its cycle for the next 24 hours. This triggers several biological processes, including the production of cortisol for morning alertness, and melatonin for a restful night's sleep. The BIOS SkyBlue spectrum optimizes this natural process without complicated controls, energy-sapping increases in illumination, or uncomfortable color temperature changes.

Kenall's Product Marketing Manager, Lynn Walldorf, is enthusiastic about the partnership: “We already have customers who are specifying SkyBlue technology and we expect as other companies strive to meet WELL™ Building Standards, they will also. Our goal is to offer options across many of our markets, including healthcare, behavioral health and cleanroom.” BIOS SkyBlue contributes toward satisfying Circadian Lighting Design Feature 54 under the WELL Building Standard™ v1, and Feature L03 under the WELL Building Standard v2.
