Waiting Rooms

Transport waiting-rooms, should provide welcoming lighting that promote feelings of safety and security. Bright interiors are generally better, so light coloured surfaces and higher vertical illuminances, with some light onto the ceiling are preferred.

Best Practice Advice

Warm Colour Temperature

Lighting should be sufficient to allow reading of printed matter, whether seated or standing. Warm or intermediate colour temperatures will help promote a welcoming feel.

Electronic Information Displays

Care should be taken to avoid obscuring any electronic information displays that may be present either by obstruction or having a luminaire positioned too close to the display.

Technical Support

The general recommendation in EN 12464-1:2014 is for 200 lux to provide a light, welcoming feel for use at all times of the day and night. Linear fittings have better light spread at higher angles so they are preferred for this application as they minimise wall scalloping – providing more even vertical illuminance.

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.
