Carlsbad, CA, December 20, 2022, – BIOS Lighting welcomes USG and the company’s Specialty Ceilings Plus® division to the BIOS Illuminated™ Program. USG expands the BIOS Illuminated product to offer exclusive linear and ceiling lighting solutions designed with the BIOS SkyBlue™ Technology.
BIOS SkyBlue is a patented LED circadian lighting solution that produces the healthy “blue sky” light signal needed to stimulate human circadian biology. This specific light wavelength (490nm) communicates directly with human biology through a non-visual photoreceptor to regulate circadian rhythms, providing healthier sleep patterns and ultimately, better health.
“We welcome USG to the BIOS Illuminated Partner Program and look forward to introducing a new and exclusive line of specialty ceiling solutions. This partnership enables USG to work directly with architects, designers, and construction firms looking for the naturally brilliant performance of BIOS SkyBlue LED Solutions,” said Deepak Savadatti, CEO of BIOS Lighting. “With BIOS, USG now offers integrated lighting solutions that enhance aesthetics, health, and wellness.”
The new USG + BIOS Illuminated Specialty Ceilings Plus portfolio launches with the Brilliance collection and is designed to make both new build and retrofit projects simple and easy to spec and install for firms focused on healthcare, educational, retail, and commercial office building projects.
“USG and our Ceilings Plus team are excited to introduce circadian integrated lighting to support architectural wellness goals. By utilizing state-of-the-art LED lighting technology capable of targeting newly discovered wellness receptors in the eye, we are setting the standard for best-in-class ceiling products,” said Joseph A. Hazani, Product Manager – Integrated Lighting, USG Specialty Ceilings. “The future is going to be bright™.”
