But before we start… What kind of rules and regulations exist in office spaces?
The rules state that 500 lux is ideal for a working environment. But it is advisable to carry out a study defining each and every one of the points of light that exist in the office to ensure that the environment in which you are working is more comfortable and efficient.
To make sure that the regulations are being complied with and that you are safe in your workspace, you can measure the LUX with the camera of your mobile phone or with the use of some mobile application.
Fatigue or possible headaches, tired eyesight are clear symptoms of a hard day’s work together with computers, planning reports, design, perhaps you have not taken it into account but the lack of lighting is a key factor to avoid all these symptoms and you may be neglecting.
Natural light is the best for offices but it is not always favourable to us sometimes it causes reflections and is too excessive. Better light for offices should be natural light as long as it is not excessive, nor causes unnecessary reflections should be used natural light, bearing in mind that in winter sunshine hours are reduced and that working late in the office lighting has a very important role for our health and is an aspect that should not be forgotten.
Attentive architects and designers, important factors to illuminate your office
The importance of general light that illuminates the entire office and that is composed of ceiling lamps or ceiling lights, we must take into account the height of the luminaires and keep the focus away from those walls or floors that can produce reflections.
We also know the focalized or punctual light that coexists with you and that the care that has been taken to choose them will encourage a much more comfortable execution of your work.
We all know the typical LED flexes, but there is a wide range of lamps that improve the efficiency of your performance and we have not heard much more comfortable, respectful of the environment and LUXES can advise you so you can better regulate your space and improve visual comfort.
On the other hand, decorative or ambient light is that which focuses on the elements that are to be highlighted within a space to highlight some decorative elements. Special care must be taken with this type of luminaire and it must be carefully adapted to the scenarios that we want to highlight without forgetting a periodic review to check if the results are as expected.
And to say goodbye I leave you with a tip for when we work with monitors is better to use a soft light and that is indirect and diffuse.
