CIBSE Recommended Lux Levels

CIBSE, the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers, acts as a professional body for lighting in the UK and produces a series of guides giving optimum lighting requirements for a wide range of environments.

Kellwood Can Help

Using a vast range of high quality LED Lighting Products, here at Kellwood LED Lighting our lighting design team will work to exacting standards to ensure that each installation is in line with best practice.

Our following table, compiled from information found in CIBSE's Society of Light and Lighting publications, aims to give recommended light levels for commonly found environments. These are recommendations only; careful consideration must go into every unique environment. All units given are in Lux, equalling one lumen per square metre.
