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.”
