Norb LLC introduces the Norb (Nutri-Orb) brand of LED light bulbs. The Norb line of Wellness Lighting for Better Working, Learning and Living includes:
- NorbSMILE: The “Feel Right” Light illuminates with a white-color light designed with the sun’s “happy” light spectrum that awakens and energizes. It is available as an A19 LED bulb with 11 watts and as a tube light with 18 LED watts. In contrast to regular indoor lights, which may cause drowsiness, lethargy or agitation, NorbSMILE supports a positive mood, alertness, energy and productivity. NorbSMILE is the healthy building light for daytime illumination in company offices, the lobbies and meeting rooms of office buildings and hotels, and school and university hallways and classrooms.
- NorbSLEEP: The “Sleep Right” Light provides a soft, warm, white-color light with the wavelengths of natural evening light. Like sunset and twilight, NorbSLEEP prompts the body to produce melatonin, the natural hormone that signals it is time to relax, feel drowsy and fall asleep. It is a dimmable A19 LED bulb with 9 watts, similar to a 40W incandescent bulb, and it fits standard sockets. When used for illumination in fixtures, such as bedside table lamps and bedroom overhead lights, NorbSLEEP helps people fall asleep naturally and get a restful night’s sleep. NorbSMILE is the healthy building light for evening illumination in hotel rooms, college dormitory bedrooms and in hospital rooms at the patient’s bed side.
NorbSLEEP and NorbSMILE are good for healthy buildings and for green buildings, too. Energy-efficient and long-lived, at average use of two hours per day, NorbSLEEP can last for 25 years with an estimated annual cost of operation of only 72 cents . At average use of eight hours per day, NorbSMILE can last 17 years with an estimated annual cost of operation of just $5.76. Both have a three-warranty.
Human physiology is naturally synchronized with the sun’s daily changing light spectrum. Morning sun awakens, midday sun energizes, and evening sunlight relaxes and prepares people for sleep.
Today, Americans spend as much as 93 percent of their time inside under artificial light. Most indoor lighting is optimized for facility energy efficiency, but it can leave building occupants feeling lethargic when they should be energized, distracted and agitated when they should be alert and focused and keyed up when they should be calm and relaxed.
The Norb (Nutri-Orb) brand of LED light bulbs provides biologically tuned, human-centric lighting that replicates the sun’s natural spectrum — NorbSMILE, bright, rich light for daytime energy and alertness, and NorbSLEEP, softer, warmer evening light to signal our bodies to relax, recover and sleep at nighttime. NorbSLEEP and NorbSMILE help people feel healthier, happier and more productive.
NorbSLEEP and NorbSMILE are available on Amazon.com.
