Lighting for Office

The Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA) provides recommended lighting level guidelines for tasks of varying degrees of difficulty carried out in a typical office environment. The range of levels is 30 foot-candles (300lux) to 100 foot-candles (1000 lux), with 50 foot-candles being a convenient figure to remember.

Key Points:

  • Decorative
  • With function to improve working efficiency
  • Reflecting light is not good option
  • Direct front to the working position is not suitable

How many energy saving  lamps or bulbs do you need for your office?

Room Height Wattage of Bulb Distance of Bulb
3 meters 13w,15w 1 meter each
5 meters 20w, 25w 1.5 meter each
8 meters 30w, 45w, 50w 2 meter each
10 meters 65w, 85w, 105w 3 meter each

Today, office general lighting has to take into consideration the computerized environment prevalent in most offices today. Lighting-related operating costs and productivity could be greatly effected by the proper general lighting. Improving the quality of the general lighting in your office can be both easy and cost effective.

T5 lamps, with the smaller diameter and more efficient than T8 lamps, can be built into the casework and shielded from the customers eye.

The following lighting sources are available for office

Part A: Energy Saving Lamps

The compact fluorescent bulb consists of a high performance electronic ballast and a trichromatic fluorescent lamp. The whole unit is compact and simple in construction and highly effective in light emitting, with soft light, excellent chromaticness and low heat-emission. Moreover, it can be instantly started even at a comparatively low temperature or voltage.

Available for the following fixtures:

  • Table Lamps: Bulb, Candle, Mini Global, Mini U Style, Spiral and Column, Mini Flower.
  • Floor Lamps: Bulb, Candle, Global, U Style, Spiral and Column, Circle, Mini Flower.
  • Pendants: Bulb, Candle, Mini Global, Mini U Style, Spiral, Mini Flower.
  • Ceiling Lamps: T Tube, Circle.
  • Wall Sconces: Bulb, Candle, Global, U Style, Spiral and Column, Flower.


PART B: LED Lights

The LED light series provide good light distribution, soft and flattering, yet bright enough for applying writing, reading and so on. The LED lighting application is very popular.

Before you buy the lights for the right application, please think about the factors:

  • Select the proper power which will fit in your room or space.
  • Select the right shape and size which will fit in your light fixture.
  • Select the proper color or color temperature in between the 2700K and 6400K labeled packages.
  • Select the right base for your fixture.
  • Select ENERGY STAR® lights for reliability.

Do not use CFLs in recessed and enclosed fixtures

Recessed light fixtures and fixtures that are completely enclosed (no air flow) are more likely to cause early failure for most CFLs. The additional heat generated by the compact fluorescent bulb in the enclosed fixture is too much for the ballast that is integrated into the base of the bulb. Although the CFL will operate in these fixtures, the life of the bulb will be shortened substantially from its rated life.
