This chapter is filled with information about lighting standards, instructions and tips for your light planning.
European Lighting Standard EN12464-1
Since 2003 EU member countries have had a common standard (EN 12464-1) for light planning in workplaces. The earlier standards had comprised of lighting requirements for work surfaces, computer monitors and the immediate surroundings. Based on new researc...
Instructions for planning and calculations
Does the the room’s surfaces and the working area have the recommended luminance conditions? And what are the requirements for good colour rendering? Here are the answers.
Planning and calculation tips
A lighting installation necessitates that careful consideration is paid towards the selection of the appropriate lighting system, equipment, control systems and the use of daylight. Here are some tips about energy efficiency and evaluations.
Quantities, units and their significance
The luminaire’s light distribution is measured on several C-planes around the luminaire, at intervals of at least 15°. First measurement plane (C=0°) is across the lamps’ longitudinal axis. γ-angles – several angles are measured, at least every 5 degrees ...
Luminance classification of decorative luminaires with opal surfaces
In order to facilitate the selection of luminaires with luminous opal surfaces, Fagerhult has developed a classification system that documents the average luminance for this type of luminaire.
Through research we now know that light affects us not just visually, but also non-visually. Traditionally lighting quality was only described visually within a space by stating the illuminance within the working area and its immediate surroundings. Howev...
