Great lighting makes any room look better…that’s something that you probably would expect to hear from an interior decorator, but the truth is that proper lighting is essential for any and every workplace, restaurant, or retail establishment.
On-Site Acoustic Testing can provide lighting surveys (in LUX or Footcandles) to determine whether your lighting is suitable for the area and purpose.
The following table illustrates acceptable minimum levels of lighting (in LUX) in different areas:
Recommended Lux Levels by Area
|Area||Nominal Illumination Level in
Lumens/Square Meter (lux)

|Entrance Lobbies, Atria||200|
