Lighting analysis and requirements for each component of the parking lot

  1. Entrances and exits – entrances and exits of parking lots need to check the verification parts, charge, identify the driver’s face, facilitate communication between the staff and the driver; the railings, the facilities on both sides of the entrance and exit, and the ground must provide corresponding lighting to ensure the safety of the driver. Driving, therefore, the lighting here should be properly reinforced and provide targeted lighting for these operations. GB 50582-2010 stipulates that the illumination of the entrance and toll of the parking lot should not be lower than 50lx.

2, signs, markings – the signs in the yard are required to be seen by being illuminated, so the lighting should be taken into account when designing the lighting. Then there is the marking on the ground. When setting up the lighting, you should ensure that all the markings are clearly displayed.

3, body parking space – the illumination requirements of the parking space, to ensure that the ground markings, ground locks, isolation railings are clearly displayed to ensure that the driver does not hit the ground obstacles due to insufficient illumination when entering the parking space. After the vehicle is parked in place, the body needs to be displayed with appropriate lighting to facilitate identification by other drivers and access to the vehicle.

  1. Pedestrian route – When pedestrians take the car or get off, there will be a walking road. This section of the road should consider the lighting according to the ordinary pedestrian road, providing suitable ground lighting and vertical lighting. The pedestrian route of this yard is mixed with the roadway and is considered according to the standard of the roadway.

However, the impact on the off-site environment should be reduced. After all, vehicles or parking lots are not aesthetic decorations in the public environment, and they may damage the original harmony of the environment.

The above problems can be improved by arranging the lamps, and an array is formed around the parking lot by providing a continuous light pole, which can function as a line of sight barrier, so as to achieve an isolation effect inside and outside the parking lot.
