When floor lighting, the floor surface can be illuminated with direct light from downlights or from floodlights positioned on the sides. Floor washlights particularly emphasise the floor surface and its physical make-up.
Due to their asymmetric light distribution, floor washlights provide grazing light illumination of the floor. They ensure a high degree of visual comfort thanks to their low mounting height. A soft beam gradient reduces the contrast with the suroundings. The elimination of glare from downlights is determined by the cut-off angle.
