Lighting design suitable for the built environment is called "architectural lighting design." The quality of light source, the aesthetic elements illuminate, as well as the amount of light, structure occupants, energy efficiency and cost are all should be carefully considered. Artificial lighting uses daylight factor calculations to account for the amount of sunlight received in the interior. For simple installation, an acceptable lighting design is manually provided based on tabular data. More key or optimized designs now often use mathematical modeling on computers with software such as Radiance, which allows architects to quickly conduct complex calculations to examine the benefits of a particular design.
In some design examples, materials used on walls and furniture play an important role in lighting effects. For example, dark paint absorbs light, making the room look smaller and darker, while light paint does the opposite. Reflective surfaces also have an impact on the lighting design for painting. Using different colors of pcb also have different reflection of lights.
Photometric studies are often used to simulate the lighting design of a project before it is built or refurbished. This enables architects, designers and engineers to determine which configuration of the lighting device will provide the amount of light needed. Other parameters that can be determined are contrast between light and dark areas. In many cases, these studies are based on the type of practice recommended by IESNA or CIBSE. Depending on the type of construction, customer or safety requirements, different design aspects of safety or practicality may be emphasized. These are usually created using specialized software, often in conjunction with 2D CAD drawings and lighting calculation software. DINAM has its own laboratory and equipment to do the calculation by DILUX. We can send the IES files to you for the photometric studies.
In order to define the color properties of light sources, the lighting industry relies on two metrics, the correlated color temperature (CCT), which is commonly used to indicate the "warm" or "cool" performance of light emitted by a light source, the color rendering index (CRI) The ability to make objects appears natural. We offer a wide spectrum with CCT starting from 2000K to 10000K, and CRI 90 or CRI 95+.
From the important properties of architectural grade lighting, our LED strips and neon lights are very much capable to accomplish the task.
