Specialist lighting guide for FM’s

Lighting Guide image

The Society of Light and Lighting (SLL) has published its first guidance document designed specifically to address the key lighting tasks required of facilities managers.

Lighting is absolutely critical to providing a safe and productive working environment and much of the management required to procure, maintain and optimise lighting systems falls to facilities managers. The SLL Lighting Guide (LG) 20 sets out a logical approach for non-specialists to identify and undertake the tasks required in order to “provide the right amount of light in the right place for the right amount of time.”

LG20 includes guidance on energy consumption and assessing the maintainability of existing lighting installations. This information is often required in relation to service level agreement, or can create a compelling argument for upgrading lighting systems, in terms of investment in energy savings, reduced carbon footprint and increased reliability.

The guide includes three case studies, providing practical examples and context. These look at lighting for a data centre; upgrading emergency lighting in a 6-storey building; and the circular economy and repurposing luminaires. There is a growing interest and need for a circular economy approach, meaning that future lighting installations may be made up of refurbished, or even leased products.
