Low level lighting and recessed brick lights

Low level lighting and recessed brick lights give a pleasing lighting effect to your outdoor space. Be mindful that glare can be caused by the use of higher wattage lamps in brick lights without louvres. Take care too when retrofitting brick lights into existing brick and blockwork - buy your light fittings and measure them carefully before taking to your wall with hammer and chisel.  Please call us if you require advice with your lighting project.

Low level lighting for visibility

Entry lighting indicates where the entry is and safely lights the way in and out of a building and also lights signs or building numbers.  Less is more and many are better than one. These seemingly contradictory principles applied to entryway lighting result in inviting and uniform light levels.  Use multiple low light level fixtures instead of one very bright fixture  otherwisethe area nearest the fitting is too bright and the areas furthest away are too dim. Using multiple fixtures lets you put the light in the key areas of interest: near signs, by doorways and stairs, thus more evenly distributing the light.

Light levels at entrances - glare is caused either by direct view of an unshielded light source or by too much contrast if the rest of the exterior is relatively dark. A contrast ratio of less than 5 to 1 is desirable to softly accent an area without creating glare. When someone leaves an excessively lit building, it takes the eye longer to adapt from a bright entry to the darker walkways outside, making it difficult to see.

Where does extra light go? In addition to causing visual difficulties, excessive light adds to other problems as well. All this extra light reflects off the surrounding walls and walkways, bouncing into the sky, creating "light pollution" (even concrete has a reflectance of up to 40%!). Light trespass invades adjacent buildings and light pollution reduces our ability to view the moon and stars, compromising our quality of life.
