Frequently asked questions about light planning and light calculation
What is a lighting calculation/lighting design?
Every industry and every workplace has its own lighting requirements. With a lighting calculation, we determine the number of luminaires and luminaire positioning for standard-compliant light in your application. Among other things, this concerns the optimal illuminance (lux) and the glare rating (UGR).
How does a light calculation work?
Our light calculation is usually done in three steps.
First, you fill out the light calculation form. The more information you provide (type of application, room dimensions, special requirements, pictures and plans of your application and individual wishes), the more precise and individual we can design your lighting plan.
After receiving the information, we create your online light calculation with professional software, which takes the requirements for your lighting and determines a plan based on the selected luminaires. This contains placement recommendations and suggestions for suitable luminaire models, taking into account legal requirements and your individual ideas.
The last step is to order and install your new lighting. In addition to the lighting design, you will receive an unbeatable offer, which you can order directly. The products will be sent to you immediately (also directly to your application or construction site). Now you only have to contact your electrician for installation and you can soon enjoy your optimal, healthy and individual new lighting 😊
What are the advantages of a light calculation?
Professional lighting design guarantees perfect light in all rooms of your application - from hall lighting and warehouse lighting to corridor and office lighting. Appropriate standards are taken into account, as are your personal preferences. Benefit from our experience and save yourself the trouble of having to take care of your lighting concept yourself.
We plan your new lighting with efficient and durable LED lights, so that you can massively reduce electricity costs, benefit from sustainable light in the long term and are assured of excellent photometric values. In addition, high-quality LEDs reduce the maintenance factor of your lighting systems. This saves time and money.
Based on the results of the lighting calculation, we create an individual and manufacturer-independent offer - of course taking into account your wishes and favorite brands.
How long does a light calculation take?
You will usually receive our lighting design and a quote tailored to your application within 24 hours (weekdays).
Is a lighting calculation possible for a new construction project?
Of course, we also calculate and plan the lighting for your new buildings. The more information you give us about your project, the more detailed we can create your ideal lighting solution.
When is a light calculation mandatory?
Many industries have legal requirements regarding lighting, which are defined in the workplace directive DIN EN 12464-1. Lighting standards and safety-relevant aspects must often be complied with and result in specifications regarding illuminance (lux) or glare value (UGR). Professional lighting design is then indispensable. This is the only way to create standard-compliant and safe light in your application.
Which legal requirements are taken into account in a lighting calculation?
Different industries and activities have their own requirements for the right light. Appropriate lighting ensures the health, performance and safety of employees. Legal standards (workplace directive DIN EN 12464-1) regulate the lighting requirements of different applications.
On the one hand, this concerns illuminance, which is specified in lux. While warehouse areas get by with 300 lux, office workplaces, for example, are illuminated with at least 500 lux. Work areas for precision work must even have up to 1500 lux.
In addition, the light must not cause glare under any circumstances. The glare rating is given in UGR (Unified Glare Rating) between 10 and 30. The lower the value, the lower the direct and indirect glare of workplace lighting.
Can a lighting management system be included in a lighting calculation?
Automatically controlled or smart light provides comfort and increased safety in many applications. Of course, we plan automatic lighting control on request. So you get the complete lighting solution for your project from a single source.
Are personal preferences taken into account in the light calculation?
Of course, we include your wishes and ideas in our light calculation. Therefore, it is advantageous if you fill out the form as detailed as possible. For questions and queries, you are welcome to contact our lighting experts personally.
How much does a light calculation cost?
We offer our light calculation for the professional sector without obligation and free of charge. Private customers pay 149,90€, which will be 100% refunded if the order is placed.
