Network Rail categories B, C, D, E & F
Well-designed lighting in circulation spaces, and leading up to retail or refreshments units, must be warm and welcoming for effective wayfinding and to drive footfall. Lighting in general circulation spaces should have good uniformity.
Illumination in directly adjacent areas, such as refreshment kiosks with outside seating, should be taken into account to create comfortable areas to relax and ensure easy transition between spaces.
In take away kiosks facing directly onto a circulation space, the counter and work area must be well illuminated. This ensures staff can work effectively and that items on display for purchase appears inviting to the customer.
