Asymmetric Light Output
The best solution for achieving optimal workspace lighting is an asymmetric task light.
Ergonomically designed task lights distribute light evenly across the working area. Since light is directed across the worksurface, it will not cause any glare to the user or discomfort to colleagues. The even light distribution eases the transition between light and dark areas and allows your eyes to work in a constant, comfortable light.
Statutory requirements fulfilled
Requirements for good workspace lighting are laid down in the international standard for indoor workplace lighting, EN 12464-1. Luxo task lights surpass the illuminance requirements of a minimum average of 500 lux on the desk surface.
An individual ergonomic task light ensures optimal workspace lighting. The illustration below shows an important advantage of asymmetric light output: the luminaire may be placed outside of your immediate work area, allowing for increased space to work.
