0

As you know, the purpose of outdoor lighting is to enhance safety and security, with primary emphasis on durability and durability. Whether you work on a construction site that may have machinery, motor vehicles and contractors; Or install suitable lighting on a ladder, outdoor lighting is necessary to enable fast and accurate working, safety and security, and good visual environment. Here, Red Arrow explores what you need to know … Safety lights designed to illuminate driveways, entrances and outbuildings, outdoor safety lights are generally installed to deter intruders with bright, far-reaching lighting in areas that are hidden in the dark. However, it is well known that common causes of complaints to local authorities often include external security lights. Well designed, installed and maintained safety lights can meet all UK requirements, but it is important to be aware of the following: Glare – the uncomfortable brightness of a light source due to excessive contrast between bright and dark areas in the field of view, and glare can adversely affect safety . There can also be glare issues where CCTV cameras are installed – glare can cause “flares” or “hot spots” that can block the image, and sometimes light pollution altogether – safety lights should provide the minimum amount of illumination necessary To illuminate the building, without causing inconvenience to wildlife, pedestrians and neighbors – motion detectors – if poorly directed, will not only detect people on the property, but also pedestrians on footpaths and animals, causing intermittent switching to create inconvenience and waste of energy – do not allow For excessive bright light propagating into neighboring buildings and sidewalks, particularly in windows, emergency lighting required in emergency situations when the main power is cut off and regular electrical lighting is disrupted, emergency lighting is designed to give a high level of illumination to enable residents to evacuate buildings safely. When used as a general term, emergency lighting can be divided into escape path, open area, and high-risk mission areas. However, each building has its own requirements for emergency lighting, so before installing, consider the following: System planning and design Determining the locations of emergency lighting fixtures, for example, changes in direction or level and focus points, such as contact points, fire alarm panels, etc. To that regular testing and maintenance Red Arrow tip: Escape route lighting can also be known as lane emergency lighting and provides the safest and fastest way to a fire exit – and according to BS5266 standard, all escape routes must achieve at least 1 lux on the road center line. Products rated IP65 are ideal for outdoor use or in industrial applications. Spotlights are commonly used to illuminate stadiums, construction sites, parking lots and industrial areas – just to name a few – spotlights are useful for a wide range of applications to provide a great deal of light with the greatest possible economy. They are also ideal for safety and high visibility in high-risk areas, such as traffic roads in industrial sites. Again, it is crucial to consider light pollution before installation, but for industrial spaces with floodlights you should also: Determine the extent of the task area – Will a PIR Spotlight be more suitable for emitting light only when needed? Rate Your Spotlight Site – Is Lighting Required 24/7? Or does a flashlight equipped with a photoelectric light sensor avoid unnecessary power consumption by turning it off automatically when not needed? Consider the type of light distribution required and the amount of light required. Choose the light source and maintenance characteristics to suit the application. Red Arrow’s Top Tip: Floodlight is all-round outdoor lighting, ideal for all outdoor applications that require directional lighting. Specific area.
