BeWell™ Optics

BeWell is a patent-pending, materials-based lightguide technology that uses molecular optics to direct light. These highly efficient optics are multi functional, available in direct, indirect, asymmetric or a combination to deliver high performance, comfortable illumination.

ADA compliant

Objects projecting from walls (e.g., sconces) shall protrude no more than 4” into walks, halls, corridors, passageways or aisles.

BeWell Controls™

BeWell Controls™

BeWell Controls takes a systems approach to ensure seamless integration between the luminaires, sensors, control devices and users. It encompasses all elements of a facility’s controls system, supporting Axis’ agnostic approach to provide comprehensive systems support.


Axis Lighting is a proud partner with BIOS Lighting. Its SkyBlue® technology creates environments that improve alertness and promote better sleep, health and well-being. Bios is available in BalancedCare overbed luminaires.

Axitune Tunable White

Tunable white technology enables the user to independently control both color temperature and intensity of light within a given application. This provides the ability to change the color of light from warm to neutral to cool in appearance, over time, based on the needs of the occupant or the space.


Power over Ethernet (POE) delivers both lighting power and data transfer on one low-voltage wire, and enables communication with multiple building systems using Ethernet protocol, along with many types of sensors. All BalancedCare luminaires are UL Listed 2108 for POE compatibility.



Design attributes that enable easier maintenance, less costly construction, updated lighting technology, and engineered features that support today’s stringent infection control standards


UL Certified IP64 per IEC 60598 ensures that the enclosure is dust-tight and protected against splashing water without any harmful effects. Learn More


Indicates the capacity of an enclosure to protect its contents from external impacts in accordance with IEC 62262:2002 and IEC 60068-2-75:1997. The IK10 rating is the maximum on the scale from IK00 (no protection) and proves protection against 20 joules of impact (the equivalent to the impact of a 5kg mass dropped from 400mm above the impacted surface).


Denotes that the luminaire has been evaluated for corrosion resistance, cleanability and the ability of exposed material to withstand normal wear. This supports the infection control standards established by healthcare.


Denotes that the luminaire is UL Listed for Damp Locations. A damp location is normally or periodically subject to condensation of moisture in, on, or adjacent to the electrical components of a luminaire.

IC Rating

Insulated Ceiling (IC) recessed lights are rated for direct contact with insulated ceilings or, that is, they can be installed in contact with combustible material or blanketed with thermal insulation

UL/CUL Listed

All BalancedCare luminaires have been tested to be in compliance with Underwriter’s Laboratory (UL) performance standards. UL is a world leader in product safety testing and certification.

CCEA Approved

The City of Chicago Environmental Air (CCEA) rating ensures that the luminaire is inherently airtight. Wiring and/or branch circuit terminations are sealed off and gasketed from the plenum air space. This listing ensures that the luminaire is sealed to limit air flow from the room side to the plenum.
