luminance contrast

Luminance contrast is a photometric term determined by the difference in the colour and brightness of an object compared to its background within the same field of view. A lighting design that brightens some objects while others stay shaded can provide improved visibility. Many lighting professionals recommend a maximum ratio of 5 : 1 or …

Lighting Uniformity

Lighting uniformity refers to the evenness of illumination across the work area, floor and walls respectively. Uniform lighting is particularly important for work areas.If the lighting is uneven, the eyes of the occupants make involuntary adjustments for the different lighting levels while trying to stay in focus, creating undue stress and fatigue The standard EN12464-1 …

types of lighting

Lighting is generally divided into three types : General lighting usually consists of ceiling-mounted luminaires placed with the same distance between them and half the distance to the wall. General lighting provides the required illuminance all over and complete furnishing flexibility. The overall appearance might not be appealing and energy consumption is higher than for …

led lighting benefit

LED lighting technology provides large benefit for energy efficiency and high quality lighting for both the private and public service sectors. The LED technology is very different from former lighting technologiesand holds many possibilities for innovation. This can result in better working conditions and greater well-being e. g. through optimised luminaires, built-in lighting, flexible lighting …

runway stop bars

Similar to runway guard lights, runway stop bar lights are in-pavement lights on taxiways at intersections with runways. As opposed to RGLs that provide warning to pilots approaching a runway, runway stop bar lights are designed to act as “stop” lights, directing aircraft and vehicles on the taxiway not to enter the runway environment. Runway …

displaced threshold lights

During the final approach for landing, pilots must make a decision to complete the landing or “execute a missed approach.” The identification of the threshold is a major factor in pilot decisions to land or not to land. For this reason, the region near the threshold is given special lighting consideration. The threshold is identified …
