To “light” important subway lighting, how to choose lamps?

There are millions of ways to get to work, the first subway commute.

As the “urban artery”, subway lines criss-cross the underground of the city, carrying people from one place to another area, the subway has become a very important means of transportation in modern cities.

In addition to Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Beijing and other cities that are operating rail transit, more than 40 cities are under construction or planning to build subway and light rail and other urban rail transit facilities. It can be seen that the current urban rail transit is entering a wave of construction peak.

As an underground public space with dense flow of people, the subway station does not see natural light all day long, so the lighting design plays a decisive role in the subway environment design.
So what kind of lamps are the first choice for subway lighting?

Subway lighting is a complex project, and there are many regional divisions in the subway: entrances and exits, station halls, platforms, carriages, tracks, etc. Affected by natural lighting, human flow density, regional functions, light environment comfort and other factors, the lighting needs of different regions are not the same. Generally used lighting methods are basic lighting, guiding lighting, decorative lighting, interval lighting, advertising lighting, emergency lighting.

Basic lighting
Basic lighting is the main lighting method in subway lighting, which is generally used to meet the purpose of functional lighting to ensure sufficient illumination.
In the corridor area of the station hall, light panels and downlights are generally selected to ensure that the light is uniform, soft and bright, and ensure that pedestrians enter and exit the station in an orderly and efficient manner.

Ticket selling and ticket checking are the routine actions of passengers in the subway — press the button on the ticket machine to buy tickets and make change; Ticket gate recognition tickets/car cards, this series of actions more visual requirements than to see the road. Therefore, the lighting needs of these two areas are: high illumination and anti-glare.
The office is a place for subway staff to handle their daily work, usually using downlights or light panels. A good lighting environment can not only make the office more beautiful, but also directly affect the work efficiency of employees, reduce the error rate and alleviate visual fatigue.
