Power management company Eaton’s Cooper Lighting and Safety business has published a new comprehensive Lighting Design Guide to help designers and architects easily find the right lighting solution for the right application.

The guide offers useful advice on how to design and install mains, interior and emergency lighting schemes, offering detailed information on levels of illumination, energy efficiency and lighting regulations. The guide is now available online and can be downloaded for free at:

Uniformity and ratios of illuminance, glare, colour, room reflectance and energy efficiency are only some of many lighting criteria that should be taken into consideration when designing and installing an effective and efficient lighting scheme. The Lighting Design Guide helps lighting designers fully meet such criteria and create a comfortable and efficient illuminated space. It also provides useful advice on how to estimate a suitable level of illumination and comply with energy and building regulation requirements.

In order to support lighting designers in finding comfortable and balanced lighting solutions for working environments, the guide also offers useful insight into a wide range of current lighting application standards and guides. In addition, it includes a section dedicated to the complex subject of emergency lighting that provides advice on how to effectively comply with fire safety legislation in a way that is visually acceptable and meets the user’s needs for ease of operation and maintenance.
