Lighting simulations can in some cases let you calculate uniformity in an office space. It’s important, however, to be aware of the products’ beam shape you’re working within actual conditions. Certain shapes can result in sufficient values but create a negative impact, for example by throwing harsh shadows.
Philips products are developed using optimal beam shapes, thus avoiding potential visual discomfort. Philips’ office products make it easy to achieve good uniformities, in both simulations and real-life applications. SmartBalance, for example, provides high vertical illuminance while maintaining a UGR level below 19, resulting in high uniformities.
Philips products provide high lighting levels on walls and ceilings, and use top quality optics. But it also designs lighting system and software applications depending on the user needs and different installation types. The SmartBalance product family includes recessed, free floor standing, suspended, wall-mounted, and surface-mounted luminaires, for example. This variety gives users high lighting levels and the chance to create diverse lighting scenarios by combining different product types in the
Philips SpaceWise wireless lighting solution is another choice for efficiently providing excellent lighting in a way that takes into account your workplace’s spatial parameters and the need for space optimization. It provides lighting in occupied areas without sacrificing lighting levels on surrounding surfaces.
