Lighting around the clock as an irreplaceable requirement is something we see daily in our sensitive living spaces. Especially in the field of health and transportation services, unrestricted illumination becomes necessary when it gets dark: Fire stations, hospitals, airports, train stations and bus stops, busy pedestrian areas and road traffic hubs require safe illumination around the clock.
The necessity for good illumination during evening and night hours is based on the need to be able to take in one’s surroundings quickly:
Initial orientation and immediate understanding of what we see – it all must happen in the blink of an eye. In addition to being able to spot tripping hazards, it is – of course – essential to clearly see other people and traffic users.
That, which is regarded as a matter of course, requires careful consideration by lighting designers far beyond actual illumination. The quality of the luminaires and their components is the invariable focus. Despite continuous periods of use, malfunctions are not acceptable: durability is a must. Low maintenance enhances the quality of use of the lighting system just s much as permanent control over all things illumination – centrally, yet with the option of anywhere access.
