The CICAT Health & Wellness Working Group has recently published the Guide to Integrating Light. Also known as Integrative Lighting, it is an official term coined by the CIE in its International Lighting Vocabulary. Defines lighting specifically intended to integrate visual and non-visual effects, which produce psychological and physiological effects on people.
Nowadays, it is very important to emphasize that lighting must adapt, not only to the role or work that light fulfills as such, that of lighting, but also to us, humans. Taking into account the effects that may occur in people depending on the level of the degree of exposure to light sources.
In other words, in order to obtain the maximum benefit from a lighting system based on the integrating light concept, both the use of the product with the appropriate specifications and its correct application in its environment must be taken into account.
For this reason, GT Salud & Wellness launches this integrating light guide with a double objective:
1. Design a technical product specification guide to help the lighting industry to develop solutions with integrating light criteria.
2. Present an application guide to help specifiers define lighting solutions according to the criteria of integrating light.
