The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers commonly known as CIBSE is the is the formal body for lighting in the UK. They manage and circulate a recommended lux lighting guide, to ensure optimal levels of lighting are present in the correct environment.
We know how helping this guide can be for lighting projects, so we thought we would share the handy lighting guide with you! Keep in mind that this lighting guide is a guide. Each environment needs to be carefully considered to ensure the optimal lighting levels are present, and as we know, no lighting project is ever the same.
The CIBSE lighting guide is a fantastic resource when lighting areas where people are present. Correct lighting without glare or shadows can reduce work related illness (headaches, eye fatigue, eye discomfort etc) and obviously increase visibility. Lighting levels are often overlooked, but are actually crucial to an effective working environment.
