Designing spaces are impossible without light. Lighting design defines the space, source of light, lighting effect, and overall mood and atmosphere to the interior or exterior spaces. Our lighting designers provide support to architects, interior designers and electrical engineers in the U.A.E. As lighting designers, our responsibilities are to perform exact LUX level calculations and modeling for LED light sources and best lighting effects.
Kick start meeting with the client, architect, interior designer and electrical engineer to understand lighting requirements. These meetings are designed to understand the details of design, and ascertain exactly what the project needs for effective implementation.
Our initial design meetings are structured to discuss the following important points:
● Lighting design directions from Architects & Interior Designers
● Basic lighting layout discussion
● Lighting control options
● Project program and coordination
Our team starts working on the basic lighting design, including defining the type of luminaires needed, setting standards and determining design mood, concept and scheme as per consultant’s recommendations and pre-planned lighting layout. All these are decided at the initial design meeting.
On securing approval on types of luminaires and basic layouts, lighting calculations are carried out by our expert lighting designers using advanced lighting design software’s like DIALUX 3.14 and DIALUX Evo to acquire design outcomes and functionality.
Immediately following successful lighting calculations, comprehensive LUX levels reports, along with different isometric and 3D views are submitted for the architect and consultant’s approval. Design changes, variation and recommendations are incorporated in accordance with project requirements.
Final deliverables are handed over to the MEP contractors for execution after a successful lighting design process. On-site support and supervision are provided to complete the project as per desired outcome.
We follow the following steps to ensure an effective lighting design:
Some outdoor lights that can help you achieve desired results include:
Wall grazing and wall wash effect is used to highlight the fine texture of timber and natural stone. Uniform lighting is achieved by using wide-angle flood lights and wall-washers on the ground, mast, or surface.
Façade Lighting Design Process
Façade Lighting Techniques
This is why we have the best minds and hands on ground to provide appropriate lighting for retail spaces that want to increase their sales and show their top products to visitors, while maintaining a space that is cozy and easy to navigate. We use light magic to create various luminance levels, light distributions and light contrast to ensure that shoppers enjoy an unforgettable experience.
The application of narrow beam angles and various optic options gives emphasis to the products’ three-dimensional nature and creates brilliance of surfaces. At the same time, our high-color-rendering (CRI) LED light fixtures highlight the quality of the products. Retail customers enjoy relaxing ancillary areas in our designs because we apply warm, low light points to relax the mind and ensure an enjoyable shopping.
Retail Lighting Techniques
Sports Lighting Design Techniques
One must consider the speed of games, vertical and horizontal illumination, broadcasting, camera recording and glare, and recommended LUX levels for sports activity levels in classes I, II and III. These classifications are derived from the level of competition: international, national, regional, local, training and recreational.
Sports Lighting Requirement
In order to provide a safe space for sports, adequate lighting for viewership and broadcasting are required for an enjoyable experience, sports arenas should be lit appropriately religiously adhering to the following requirements.
The premise of the industrial light design is visual comfort, task lighting, and safety of workers. Areas (such as storage spaces) that contain flammable materials require special ATEX-certified explosion proof lighting fixtures.
Industrial lighting design process
We provide complete LUX levels calculations as per target LUX levels requirements, and uniformity with the help of DIALUX Evo. Our industrial lighting designs consider heavy machinery location, storage rack heights, and positions during the lighting design process to increase functionality.
Industrial lighting design techniques
Industrial light fixtures are used in factories, warehouses and manufacturing plants. They are more efficient than traditional halogen, incandescent and fluorescent lamps. There are several types of industrial LED light fixtures, and each has been designed for specific applications.
● High-bay fixtures can be used from 20 to 45-meter height, with medium or wide beam angles.
● Low-bay fixtures can be used from 12 to 20 meters height, with medium or wide beam angles along with decorative reflectors.
● Linear high-bay fixtures are used for specific lighting requirements. These fittings can be used with normal, wide beam angles (symmetric beam angle), or in special cases, asymmetric beam angles.
● Flood light fixtures can be used on ceilings, walls and beam structures, LED wall packs and outdoor lights.
