Lighting - Louvre Categorisation (LG3) ---
   
 CATEGORY 1
Angle of louvre cut off = 55 Degrees
.

In this category, the calculated luminance of a luminaire above 55° elevation should not exceed 200cd/m at all angles of azimuth. This specification is intended for areas where there is a high density of screens and where terminal usage is sustained over long periods or is of an intensive nature. A typical example of where this specification may be required is a dealers room.
  
 
 CATEGORY 2
Angle of louvre cut off =65 Degrees
.

In this category the limiting angle is 65° elevation above which the calculated luminaire should not exceed 200cd/m at all angles of azimuth. This category of luminaire should be used in areas where there is fairly widespread usage of VDT’s, maybe one per desk for general usage or a few terminals used continuously.
  
 

 

CATEGORY 3
Angle of louvre cut off =
75 Degrees
.

The specified limiting angle for this category is 75° above which the calculated luminance should not exceed 200cd/m at all angles of azimuth. These luminaires may be used in areas where the density of VDT’s in an area is relatively low and usage is casual.
