The Indoor Lighting Standard, SFS-EN 12464-1:2011
Who is this standard for? The standard states a minimum illuminance of 30 lx as the requirement and recommends a minimum of 50 lx. Indirect light 12644-1 the ceiling ambient light The standard states a minimum illuminance of 30 lx as the requirement and recommends a minimum of 50 lx. Part 1 specifies the requirements for lighting solutions for most indoor work places and their associated areas in terms of quantity and quality of illumination.
It aims to encourage designers to consider all light sources, including natural light, not just electric lighting and it recognizes the importance of daylight for energy saving.
For indoor activity areas, the mean cylindrical illuminance must be at least eh lx and the uniformity no less than 0. Cylindrical illuminance especially affects visual communication and the ability to interpret faces, events and objects. Read more about cookies. Search all products by. The standard uses UGR values, ranging from 10 to 28, to describe discomfort glare.
The ratio between cylindrical and horizontal illuminance on the reference plane provides information on the modelling.
Colour rendering describes the ability of a light source to show the colours of objects faithfully and naturally. This improves the luminance ratio in the space, increasing visual comfort and performance. Lighting that is too directional may give rise to sharp, harsh shadows. For visual comfort, the direction of light, in relation to the shape and location of an object, must be such that it does not give rise to bz or disability glare.

BS EN Light and lighting. Lighting of work places. Indoor work places
Overview Product Details What is this standard about? BS EN specifies lighting requirements for people in indoor work places, to meet the needs for visual comfort and performance e people having normal ophthalmic visual capacity.
BS has been fully revised by experts to bring it up to date with technological developments and industry best practice. On the other hand, lighting that is overly diffuse results 1246-41 the objects and space appearing too dull and bland, making the room and its details difficult to perceive.
Emergency lighting BS Modelling Modelling, which is the balance between diffuse and directional lighting, is another aspect of lighting that should be considered in the design of lighting systems.

Secondary navigation EN At Fagerhult we believe this is a step in the right direction.
The illuminance uniformity value must be no less than 0. Modelling, which is the balance between diffuse and directional lighting, is another aspect of lighting that should be considered in the design of lighting systems.
For spaces where visual communication is especially important, such as offices and education premises, the maintained mean cylindrical illuminance should not be less than lx, with uniformity no less than 0.
Good colour rendering shows objects in their natural colours and produces pleasant lighting. Glare For visual bd, the direction of light, in relation to the shape and location of an object, must be such that it does not give rise to discomfort or disability wn.
It gives recommendations for general lighting 12464- practice to provide adequate and appropriate lighting, thus enabling people to perform visual tasks efficiently and accurately. BS will be especially useful in buildings when subdividing lighting for use only when a specific area is occupied. Indoor work places Status: Based on the findings of our research, we recommend an illuminance of lx. The minimum illuminance is 50 lx for walls and 30 lx for ceilings.
