Orientation lighting

Light to provide orientation in the outdoor area

Orientation lighting

Orientation lighting Orientation lighting Orientation lighting

Orientation lighting improves the perception by adding light points and lines, e.g. along pathways and on stairs. The light must function as a signal. Illuminating the surroundings is of secondary importance here.
Low illumination levels are sufficient for orientation purposes. Small luminaires with high luminance clearly set themselves apart form their surroundings.

Orientation lighting for the identification of
- architectural lines
- steps and exclusion zones
- entrances
- routes
- emergency exit routes

Preferred luminaire groups
- floor washlights
- wall-mounted downlights
- recessed floor luminaires
- orientation luminaires
