Food and Shop Lighting

The better the products are presented, the sooner they are sold.
For this purpose, the light management in supermarkets, stores and retail chains has gained a crucial role in promoting the goods exhibited for sales such as meat and bread or textiles and cloths.

ODL developed three lines of colour temperature conversion filters, each studied to be put in front of a light source to outline the best characteristics of the goods exhibited in the display units.
The three basic lines of conversion filters now available are:

Hot light filters
This filter makes the light hotter by reducing the blue component of the light source. Especially studied for lighting bread and oven products since they exalt the brownish colour of the bakery exhibited on the shelves.

Cold light filters
This filter makes the light colder by reducing the red component of the light source. The filters belonging to this line are suited for lighting fish as they exalt its typical white-blue shade or to be added to those sources that in the shop windows light the cloths and textiles.

Special RLight filters
In the RLight filter (blue line), the green wavelength emitted by the source (black line) is lowered while the red component is let passing through the filter as is. The effect is synthesized by the red line. Coupled with the right light, those filters are especially suited to show meat, salami, ham, red fruit, etc..

Special GLight filters work
In the GLight filter the rose/red wavelength emitted by the source (black line) is lowered by the filter (blue line) while the green component of the emitted spectrum passes unfiltered: the result is shown by the red line. Coupled with the right light source, those filters are especially suited to light green grocery, vegetables, beans, peas, lettuce and any kind of food with a green dominant in their colour.

In all the case in which the goods exhibited can suffer from the IR and/or UV irradiation, the heat reflection filters and the UVBlock filters by ODL can also be applied.
