Photometric Lighting Layouts

Your Vision, Illuminated

What We Offer

At Zlight Technology, we go beyond the ordinary to transform your space with state-of-the-art Photometric Lighting Layouts. We meticulously craft each layout with attention to detail, scientific precision, and an eye for aesthetics.

Whether you’re designing a new building or refurbishing an existing space, our layouts are tailor-made to cater to your specific needs and requirements.

What do Photometric Lighting Layouts do?

  • Lighting Simulation: Photometric Lighting Layouts offer a visual representation of the amount and distribution of light within a space. It predicts potential dark spots or overly lit areas that could create uncomfortable glare.
  • Assess Efficiency: The report allows designers to assess the efficiency of a lighting layout, potentially saving energy and money.
  • Compliance Check: A photometric layout can help ensure that a proposed lighting system will comply with jurisdictional rules.
  • Improve Design: A photometric layout can help designers improve the overall aesthetic and function of a design.
  • Enhance Safety: Photometric layouts can ensure spaces are well-lit to prevent accidents and improve security.
  • Reduce Costs: Efficient lighting design can also reduce costs related to maintenance and fixture replacement.

Our Process


Analysis and Objective Definition:

  • Survey the space to be lit, capturing dimensions and determining its function.
  • Define the desired light levels based on function and specific aesthetic or design considerations.

Fixture Selection and Data Collection:

  • Choose appropriate lighting fixtures and obtain their photometric data.
  • Import the layout of the space into the software and place the chosen fixtures.

Simulation and Evaluation:

  • Run software simulations to visualize the distribution of light, ensuring uniformity and identifying potential dark or overly lit areas.
  • Evaluate the results, considering Light Loss Factors (LLF), and adjust fixture types or placements as necessary.

Documentation and Compliance:

  • Prepare a comprehensive lighting plan, including fixture specifications and expected light levels.
  • Ensure the proposed plan adheres to local building and energy codes, obtaining necessary reviews and approvals.


  • Use the approved plan to guide the installation of the lighting system, maintaining a balance between technical requirements, aesthetics, efficiency, and budget.

Understanding a Photometric Lighting Layout

  • Lighting Fixtures: Marked on the drawing with specific symbols.
  • Photometric Grid: A grid overlaying the site plan, indicating foot-candles or lux levels.
  • Illuminance Contours: Lines that connect points of equal light level.
  • Isofootcandle Diagram: Depicts light intensity using lines spreading out from a fixture point.
  • Pole Locations and Heights: For outdoor layouts, indicating pole installations.
  • Calculations and Totals: Overview of the number of each type of light fixture and total light output.
  • Light Loss Factors (LLF): Accounts for reduction in light output over time.
