The scope of this practice covers the design of new indoor and outdoor lighting systems for new industrial facilities as well as the redesign of lighting systems in existing industrial facilities. Recommendations are based on quality lighting practices, including the safe movement of vehicles and people, enhancing the productivity and comfort of employees, conserving energy, and minimizing maintenance. Recommended minimum maintained lighting levels and maximum uniformity ratio guidelines are provided but are subject to variation for special circumstances when based on sound engineering judgment.
This Practice does not include all information for mixed application areas such as parking lots, offices, outdoor environments, commercial facilities, or daylighting design. For these crossover applications, the associated IES Recommended Practice documents should be used in conjunction with this Practice to provide the lighting recommendations. In short, this Recommended Practice will help the reader make intelligent choices to achieve the lighting goals with a minimum of expense of time and capital.
Recognized by the IES 2018 Progress Report as a unique and significant advancement to the art and science of lighting.
