Office Lighting Scotland

A little bit about office lighting.

At GW Electrics we are experts in office lighting and our clients often ask us for advice on the requirements for office lighting.

Although there are no set legal requirements in place, Health and Safety regulations demand sufficient lighting to be provided. Regulations are provided by the Chartered Institute of Building Service Engineers (CIBSE). As a general rule, an office should be illuminated to quite a high level of 500 LUX where reading or detailed work is carried out, in less demanding areas such as meeting rooms 300 LUX is more than sufficient.

Lighting design in an office is particularly important where employees use display screens and it is here that there are some legal obligations to adhere to. Generally the best advice is to provide task lighting to ensure satisfactory lighting conditions and an appropriate contrast between the screen and the background . These days modern display screens are so bright specialist light fittings are no longer completely necessary in every case.

At GW Electrics our electricians in Glasgow have completed many office lighting installations. We have established a reputation for providing a first class electrical service for office lighting in Glasgow and office lighting in central Scotland on time and on budget.
