One: general principles

1) choose lamps and lanterns with reasonable light distribution. The light distribution type of lamps and lanterns should be determined according to the function and spatial shape of the lighting place.

(2) choose efficient lamps and lanterns. Under the condition of glare limitation, direct light distribution lamps and open lamps should be adopted for lighting that only meets the visual function.

(3) choose lamps and lanterns that are convenient for installation, maintenance and low operation cost.

(4) in the special places with fire or explosion danger, dust, humidity, vibration and corrosion, lamps and lanterns meeting the environmental requirements shall be selected.

(5) when the surface of the lamp and high-temperature parts such as lamp accessories are close to combustibles, fire protection measures such as heat insulation and heat dissipation shall be taken.

(6) lighting fixtures shall have complete photoelectric parameters, and their performances shall meet the relevant provisions of the current general requirements and tests of lamps and lanterns and other standards.

(7) the appearance of the lamps shall be coordinated with the environment of the installation site.

(8) consider the characteristics of the light source and the requirements of architectural decoration.

2) courtyard lighting fixtures shall effectively control the light flux output of their upper hemisphere.

Three: landscape lighting

(1) under the condition of glare limitation and light distribution requirements, the efficiency of floodlight lighting shall not be less than 60.

(2) the protection grade of outdoor landscape lighting lamps shall not be lower than IP55, the protection grade of buried lamps shall not be lower than IP67, and the protection grade of lamps used in water shall not be lower than IP68.
