EXAMPLES OF LIGHTING OF PEDESTRIAN CROSSINGS

The statistics show that most accidents involving pedestrians take place at crossings. The properly-selected lighting of a pedestrian crossing should ensure that a pedestrian can safety cross the road and a driver can see him/her on the crossing in time to react adequately.

The lighting must:
– show a pedestrian silhouette;
– create positive contrast (a bright figure against dark backgrounds) due to light coming angularly (from the side) and not vertically (from the above);
– not let drivers to dazzle;
– single out a crossing by a higher level of intensity (50 lx) compared to general lighting;
– also illuminate space where pedestrians wait at the crossing

Climate lighting around office buildings

Articles

Lonely monoliths, lofty blocks towering over the streets. Buildings that are alive inside and dead outside - office buildings. A permanent element of the city, not attracting residents. Associated with a concrete desert or a large anthill. In the morning, the cords of cars and pedestrians disappear in the depths of the building to leave the building in the afternoon or evening. And only bright, irregular shapes of windows testify that some life in the building is still going on.
