General Circulation Spaces

General Circulation Spaces lighting should have good uniformity. Well-designed lighting and leading up to retail or refreshments units, must be warm and welcoming for effective wayfinding and to drive footfall.

Best Practice Advice

Adjacent Areas

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.

Take Away Kiosks

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.

Technical Support

The style of lighting will depend on the type of architecture in general circulation areas. RIS-7702-INS Iss1 Rail Industry Standard for Lighting at Stations refers to EN12464- 1:2011 with concourse / circulation areas requiring 200 lux.

Lighting Controls

Using a lighting control system can improve the quality of illumination as well as reduce energy consumption. Control systems allow the use of light in the required place, at the right time and in the optimum quantity. At Designplan we can provide control solutions for traditional switched applications and standalone luminaire operation, through to full networked systems utilising the DALI protocol.
