Light levels ( LUX )
Light levels are measured in something called LUX. Put simply LUX is a measurement of light falling on a given surface area.
For example an average LUX of 200 would be needed for an outdoor tennis court for recreational purposes and a side street
walkway would have an average of 5 LUX. To calculate lux levels you need a very good calculator or computer as
there is a number of factors that need to be taken in to account.
Average levels of illuminance in Lux
Sunny June day 80000 Lux
Bad light stopped play at Lords 1000 Lux
A well lit office 500 Lux
Main road lighting 15 Lux
A residential side street 5 Lux
A clear moonlit night 0.2 Lux
Lamp colour ( Kelvins )
The colour of a lamp is defined as a measurement called kelvins. A standard GLS light bulb in your house would be 2,700 kelvins
which is in the warm colour spectrum and a lamp with 6,000 kelvins would be at the very cold white spectrum. Getting the
right colour temperature of a lamp does matter as the warm colour wavelength helps to soften skin tones and gives a warm
soft relaxed feel and at the other end of the scale a 4,000 to 6,000 kelvin lamp colour would be used in offices or
a fast food restaurants to make you feel less comfortable and relaxed and more alert. There’s nothing that can sour your
opinion of a compact fluorescent or LED lamp like buying a 4000K or 5000K bulb when you meant to buy a 2700K bulb,
or vice-versa. When you buy a new, energy efficient bulb, keep your application and colour scheme in mind and make sure to
buy the bulb with a colour temperature to match.
