Network Rail categories B, C, D, E & F
Public toilets may be heavily used. Lighting should be sufficient to aid safe access and promote feelings of cleanliness whilst also enabling cleaning operations.
Moisture is likely to be ever-present so luminaires with high IP ratings are a must. In addition, the lighting should help highlight any potential slip hazards that may be present. To prevent heavy shadowing each cubicle should have a proportion of direct light, if not an individual luminaire.
Luminaires that are particularly robust, easy to clean and with long service lives will help minimise any down time for maintenance.
Designplan have produced a comprehensive overview of potential lighting applications for Network Rail Category B, C, D, E, F. Applications include everything from platforms, forecourts, subways through to public toilets.

BS EN 12464-1: 2011 calls for 100 lux in restrooms and 200 lux in cloakrooms, washrooms and bathrooms.
However, there may be an argument to increase the general 100 lux value dependant on the precise nature of the facility.
