Design floorplans for small retail

Small-scale stores offer an intimate shopping experience. Effective lighting brings out the best features of the shop: overall illumination that enhances a welcoming environment, plus attractively lit windows and displays.

  • Guide occupants through the corridor by providing sufficient light on doors and walls

  • Locate controls (sensors) at entrances and exits to prevent going into a dark corridor

  • Illuminance requirement at the floor of ≥ 100 lux

Application needs
