    Product Detailed Description
    The metrics described in this document are intended
    to be applicable to common workplace environments.
    They are based on an analysis of open offices, classrooms,
    meeting rooms, multi-purpose rooms, and
    service areas in libraries and lobbies, and so are
    most applicable to areas with similar visual tasks.
    These metrics are neither counter to, nor do they
    supersede, IES task lighting criteria for these space
    types. These metrics do not directly address energy
    consumption, as electric lighting management is
    highly variable.

    The area of analysis for these metrics is ideally
    a coherent “space”, defined by opaque walls and
    access to daylight through at least one wall or ceiling
    surface. It is also possible to apply these metrics to
    the “regularly occupied” floor area of a building, or
    some part of a building, such as one floor plate. It is
    important to specify the “area of analysis” to which
    the percentages apply.

    These metrics were derived from a study of daylit
    spaces in the continental United States, and thus
    are most applicable to similar latitudes and cultures.
