New White Paper - How to Combat Glare in Outdoor Applications

Selux Cor­po­ra­tion, a lead­ing provider of archi­tec­tural light­ing solu­tions, released a White Paper enti­tled How to Combat Glare in Out­door Light­ing Appli­ca­tions”, writ­ten by James Brigagliano LC, IES, LEED Green Asso­ciate, Exte­rior Prod­uct Man­ager.

When cre­at­ing exte­rior light­ing sce­nar­ios with a strong focus on bal­anc­ing com­fort and effi­cient light­ing, design­ers face a tough chal­lenge. There are many light­ing tech­nolo­gies that claim the high­est level of com­fort or the high­est effi­ciency, but not many widely-accepted met­rics to mea­sure these claims.

This White Paper exam­ines the cur­rent meth­ods for eval­u­at­ing glare and other con­sid­er­a­tions of com­fort. While show­cas­ing the mea­sure­ment tech­niques in use as well as those in devel­op­ment, this paper pro­vides a path to research tech­nolo­gies and strate­gies for mit­i­gat­ing glare while select­ing lumi­naires for your project.

My hope is that this tool helps light­ing pro­fes­sion­als better under­stand glare and how it can impact an out­door set­ting,” stated Mr. Brigagliano. This will allow the light­ing com­mu­nity to eval­u­ate glare, and to help pick prod­ucts and tech­nolo­gies that will offer com­fort­able, effi­cient light­ing solu­tions.”

Founded over 70 years ago in Berlin, Ger­many, Selux pro­vides high-end light­ing solu­tions to both the pri­vate and public market sec­tors. In 1983, Selux expanded its oper­a­tions to the US and opened a state-of-the-art facil­ity in High­land, NY. Selux Cor­po­ra­tion lumi­naires made at the High­land facil­ity can be found at the World Trade Center Memo­r­ial, McCar­ran Inter­na­tional Air­port in Las Vegas, the Heineken Head­quar­ters in New York City, the City of Bev­erly Hills, the Min­nesota Twins Sta­dium and in more busi­nesses, insti­tu­tions, gov­ern­ment offices, and parks through­out The Amer­i­cas.
