Network Rail categories B, C, D, E & F
Waiting Room Lighting
Lighting in waiting rooms should be welcoming and 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. Warm or intermediate colour temperatures will help promote a welcoming feel.
Lighting should be sufficient to allow reading of printed matter, whether seated or standing.
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.

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.

Our luminaires incorporate metal bodies and specially designed diffusers which can resist up to 250 joules of force – 12.5 times more than an IK10 fitting (20 joules). High ingress protection and corrosion resistant paint are other key components of our “robust and durable” ethos.
