From manufacturing facilities to supermarkets to sports halls and exhibition halls each environment has its own diverse requirements and though these are likely to change from project to project there are a number of key considerations which apply to all.
Luminaires are likely to be installed at height, therefore they need to be safe and efficient to install as well as accessible to support ease of maintenance. High mounting heights means higher light outputs are often required to acheive sufficient light levels which results in higher energy costs. Lighting should be efficient with the ability to incorporate DALI and lighting controls to maximise energy savings. Its also important to consider the environment, these can often be demanding requiring luminaires to withstand varying temperatures, humidity, dirt or impact.
