Everything You Wanted to Know About Photometry…But Were Afraid to Ask!
Brought to you byAcuity Brands
This webinar is intended for lighting specifiers.
Manufacturers’ specification sheets are an integral part of the lighting design process. These documents provide information about much more than just lumens and watts. When comparing possible lighting solutions for your project, it pays to know what other characteristics are described in the specification sheet and how to use them to ensure you get what you want from your lighting design. In this course, you will learn how to read a photometric report, how to estimate fc at a particular mounting height and the rules of thumb for spacing criterion and set back. We will also explore UGR, the Unified Glare Rating, and discuss how to mitigate glare in your designs and take advantage of the DLC energy allowances that controlling glare can provide, as well as explore why traditional roadway classification types don’t always transfer to LED and how to ensure your “equals” are truly equal. Through this webinar, you will:
Understand the meaning and practical uses of lighting terminology used on manufacturers’ specification sheets
Explore the evolving trends in office lighting and discover the keys to creating visually comfortable spaces
Learn why adopting UGR into your designs can deliver more than occupant comfort
Understand why traditional roadway classification types may not translate to LED
