    Product Detailed Description
    The primary purpose of this document is to provide recommendations for design of fixed lighting for parking facilities. This document deals entirely with lighting and does not give advice on construction. It provides recommended practices for designing new lighting systems for parking facilities and it is not intended to be applied to existing lighting systems until such systems are redesigned. However, this document does represent current good practice.

    These recommendations include interior and exterior lighting practices for the reasonably safe movement of vehicular and pedestrian traffic in parking facilities, the enhancing of personal safety and security and the deterring of vandalism and theft, while optimizing energy use and minimizing maintenance. Their application may vary from these recommendations based upon sound engineering judgment.
