Lighting Calculation

We create highly detailed lighting calculations

Lighting calculations are important for several reasons. First, the calculations provide detailed measurements of how much light is needed in a room. Secondly, the lighting calculations help to determine the most efficient way to achieve the desired degree of illumination.

When we prepare lighting calculations for our customers, we take into account a number of factors, including the size of the room, shape, type of luminaire, light incidence, architecture and purpose of the room.

We then use our long-standing experience and expertise to determine the most efficient way to achieve the desired result. By taking the time to prepare a detailed lighting calculation, we can ensure that our customers get a well-executed lighting design that meets their needs.

European standards for artificial lighting

As a property developer, architect, or contractor, you must ensure that your project complies with the relevant building regulations and European standards. At Lumega, we can of course help with both. All our lighting architects make the necessary calculations for the lighting concept.

We take responsibility

It is always the electrical contractor, the turnkey contractor or the consultant who is responsible for the project. If a lighting company is included in the lighting calculations, the responsibility passes to them. It is subsequently their responsibility to bring the lighting system to European standards.

Example of a lighting calculation

Here is a section of a light calculation.

The values to be adhered to are in parentheses.

The delivered values are indicated next to this number. –  for example. 125 lux as general brightness.

Note that the standard in the area is 100 lux. However, it is always an advantage to oversize the lighting system as the LED lighting brightness deteriorates over time.

The cell ‘Min / average’ describes the level difference in the lux values on the horizontal surface of the room. A low number means a lot of dark areas in the room.

Note that the higher the number, the more energy is used. Therefore, it is rare to see the level exceed 0.9.

If you have a project, our skilled light calculators are ready to help.
