Commercial Lighting refers to lighting used in commercial spaces such as offices, shops, institutions, hospitals and government buildings, and essentially refers to spaces that are not residential, industrial or manufacturing.Compared to other types of lighting such as residential, commercial lighting has higher initial cost expenditures, longer service life and durability, higher maintenance and service costs, and better potential to create energy-saving options.Completing a task or activity is the most important function in a commercial building.
Lighting design companies should create designs that reflect the type of activity in the building to ensure the comfort of the people working in the space and to maintain lux level requirements and energy efficiency standards.When the MEP Engineering design team works with the lighting consultant to select the design for the commercial space, some aspects that must be considered include the illumination of the space, which will use the application of the space, according to the guidelines and code, suitable for space and applications as well as for the types of lamps required at the lux level.A.When selecting lamps and lanterns in commercial lighting design, its features, uses and functions must be considered.
The commonly used commercial lighting design lamps include T5 and compact fluorescent lamps, however, LED lamps are beginning to be favored in today's industry considering the price reduction.1.Tubular fluorescent lamps-This lamps and lanterns based on traditional fluorescent technology are usually set on the ceiling and covered with frosted lenses.Depending on the amount of lighting required for commercial space, standard fluorescent lamps usually have one to four bulbs.
They are considered to have long beenLasting EnergyEfficient selection of commercial lighting designs.2.Compact fluorescent lampAs a replacement for incandescent lamps, compact fluorescent lighting also uses traditional fluorescent technology with a compact ballast inside.While it is as energy efficient as tubular fluorescent lighting, the light emitted provides a better sense of natural white.
It is usually used for tasks in commercial space and lighting applications for downlights.3.T5 fluorescent lamps-T5 fluorescent lamps are suitable for troffer or high bay (high ceiling) applications and are considered ideal for commercial lighting designs because they have a long life span and are cumbersome to maintain --free.Although T5 fluorescent lamps are designed with fluorescent lamp sources, they are now more designed to accommodate LED bulbs.

LED lighting-In recent years, LED lamps are widely used for their low power consumption and long service life.While the initial introduction of LED accessories was a challenge, the reduction in costs was almost as low as T5 and fluorescent lamps, and the preference for led lighting equipment increased in commercial lighting design.B.When using a commercial building, the main goal is to complete a task or to carry out an activity, which is why illumination or focus and amount of light are important.
In order for people and teams to be able to complete their tasks or activities, proper light must be provided.Although several types of activities are hindered under lights, excessive lighting can also cause problems when completing tasks.To understand the lux or lighting level requirements of commercial space, it is important to understand the unit of measurement of light and the efficacy of its relationship.
1.
Lux or illumination-Illumination or lux is the unit of measurement of light level intensity measured with foot candles.Usually, a bright office requires lighting of about 400 Lux.2.Lumens or luminous flux "-Lumens are measurements of the total amount of light.
A lumen is the measurement of the light output.Typically, a 100 W incandescent lamp for office space with ceiling lighting produces an output of 1600 lumens.3.The relationship between Lux and lumens-Lux measurement can help you determine the desired lumen (output) in the area where you need lighting ).
A lux is equal to the lumens of a square meter.In order to obtain a higher lumen when lighting a large area according to lux level requirements, it is usually increased the number of lamps.4.Balanced illumination and Watts-Wattage or wattage is the measurement of the power required to operate a lamp (lamp) or lighting energy efficiency.
Luminous efficiency, defined as the rate at which lamps or light sources can convert power (Watts) into light (lumens), measured in units per watt lumens (LPW.Usually, T8 fluorescent lamps or 32 w T5 for office space with ceiling lamps will produce 50 lumens/watts.The calculation of the Lux level basically needs to determine the number of lights needed for commercial space based on the size of the space, the type of activity and the energy efficiency required.
Usually, lux-level calculations use software programs such as DIALux or AGi32.The MEP Engineering design team and the lighting consultant must consider guidelines and codes that state the minimum lux levels that need to be maintained.Business space is usually too crowded, especially in offices.
Light up according to the customer's lux level requirements, which is usually more than mentioned in the guide and provided in the lighting code.A number of manuals and guidelines provided by different professional institutions include IESNA Lighting manuals published by the North American Institute of lighting engineering, Chartered Building Services Engineers Association of the United Kingdom (CIBSE) A series of guidelines provided and codes for the Australian lighting commission.Over the years, some countries have introduced a variety of green building designs and specifications to reduce energy consumption and improve efficiency.
Most green building regulations stipulate that the lighting tile/square meter of office space is within the range of 10 to 15 watts/square meter, which forces lighting manufacturers to manufacture lamps with higher energy efficiency.With the introduction of LED fixtures, Watt/m2 has dropped to 5-in many cases-8 W/m2 without affecting minimum lux level requirements.The lighting consultant must comply with strict guidelines on the number of lamps allowed in a specific area, while maintaining the minimum lux level to ensure low energy consumption and high efficiency in green building design.
In addition to the green building design specifications, lighting design companies must also consider some other trend concepts in the lighting industry in order to provide more control over energy use, data, efficiency and comfort.Some of the lighting trends that can be considered include connected lighting, interactive lighting, LED fixtures with advanced lighting control, balanced daylight, and LED and harvest technologies that will support the new concept of the customer --The center of commercial space
