What does photometry do in lighting design?


Photometry refers to the science of light measurement in terms of the light’s brightness perceived by the human eye.

The development of a lighting concept in a commercial, institutional, industrial or residential plan, interior or exterior, involves a detailed needs analysis defined according to: architectural layout and lighting plans, types of fixtures, lighting levels according to your needs, color and budget.

The photometric calculation is the best method to evaluate the performance of the lighting and to determine accurately the optimal positioning and quantity of lighting fixtures, the intensity of the light distribution, and if necessary, the consideration of natural light.
