Abstract

Good lighting within a building is desirable for many reasons, the most important of which include the following:
  1. 1.

    Better visibility in work areas in home, office and factory for comfort, efficiency and safety, and accident prevention.

     
  2. 2.

    Better visibility in recreation areas for better performance, enjoyment in observing play and accident prevention.

     
  3. 3.

    Development of color effects for pleasure and accident prevention.

     
  4. 4.

    Better visibility for security reasons.

     
  5. 5.

    Exploitation of light effects to influence human moods, accent select spaces or objects, and decorate.
