Changing Rooms

Changing rooms require bright and uniform lighting and have high energy savings potential due to their specific and time-limited use. The toilet and shower areas require luminaires with the correct IP rating.

Circulation Areas

Circulation areas should enable people to find their way easily and safely through the building, even when they are unfamiliar with it. Illuminance level requirements are 100 lux, but higher illumination values should be adapted to the activity type and level. They will also, in most cases, need to provide means of escape and this will require emergency lighting.

Sports Halls

Sports halls are often multi-functional spaces so need to be flexible enough to cope with a wide variety of sporting uses. Appropriate lighting is vital in sports halls to allow activities to take place that often demand difficult visual tasks, for instance tracking a fast moving shuttlecock against a similar colour background. Intelligent lighting controls that adapt lighting levels to the sport is the key to efficient use. There should be some control to keep glare to a minimum and the light distribution should provide adequate light on vertical surfaces. Lamps and luminaires should have wire guards or other impact-resistant protection, compliance with the ball test in DIN 57710 part 13 is recommended.

Swimming Pools

The aim of swimming pool lighting is to provide a safe and pleasant environment. Surface reflectances from the water should be taken into consideration and the appropriate emergency lighting installed to ensure safety in the event of a power failure.
