New and Underutilized Technology: Low Ambient/Task Lighting
The following information outlines key deployment considerations for low ambient/task lighting within the Federal sector. This information spans:
The low ambient/task lighting strategy improves the visual environment by adding controllable task fixtures that provide light directly where needed for a given task, while reducing the overhead (ambient) light level. Occupancy sensors can also be incorporated into the system.
Low ambient/task lighting is applicable in most building categories.
Key Factors for Deployment
Low ambient/task lighting is suitable for most office spaces, including both cubicle and private office space environments, and should be considered for deployment.
