Strategy Overview

Samjin’s office lighting systems are designed to implement Task Ambient Lighting Design Strategy. ¬†Task-ambient lighting refers to designs in which a general ambient lighting system is supplemented with localized task lighting systems. Task-ambient design delivers dramatic reduction in energy usage, because higher light levels are provided for the print based task areas only. For example, in a task-ambient design, lighting fixtures might be concentrated primarily over work areas, while an indirect lighting system provides relatively low levels of general (ambient) illuminance. Thus, when compared to a typical lighting layout, which usually rely on a general lighting system for all areas, the average light level for the room may be lower, and the number of ambient lighting fixtures can be significantly reduced. This design strategy usually requires professional design service to insure that luminaires are correctly located to produce the lighting level and quality necessary for performing visual tasks at the needed locations.

Task ambient lighting provides the exact amount of lighting required to perform a specific task as well as the most energy-efficient lighting available. In a computer based work environment, this could mean LED desk lamps and undercabinet fixtures will light up the work space, providing the lighting levels required for the tasks being performed, while an indirect lighting system provides relatively low levels of ambient (15~25 FC) illuminance for the remainder of the space. If the average light level were to be calculated for this space, it would be significantly lower than in a traditional design, while the occupants would most likely report a high level of satisfaction with the system.
