Achieving Success with LED Lighting
Many lighting fixtures are being retro-fitted with LED lamps but problems can arise with flicker, nuisance tripping and interference issues. This seminar explains how to solve these problems at the specification and design-stage and how to plan for a successful installation. It will help you to understand the following topics:
- Understand the history of the LED and advantages of this light-source
- Understand LED control challenges, what causes flicker, low-end instability, dead-travel and other problems
- Understand LED lighting as a system and how to solve LED switching and in-rush problems
- Understand how to design for compatibility for dimming systems
- Understand where to find free LED laboratory test data

Designing Daylight Systems
This seminar looks at the design of daylight shading and the specification of contol systems. It will help you to understand the following topics:
- Understand the concept and benefits of daylight design at the specification stage
- Understand how the various types of dynamic fenestration systems take advantage of daylight potential
- Understand how fabric properties affect daylighting performance and occupant comfort
- Understand how daylight design is enhanced through performance shading solutions and by the various manual, motorised and automated control systems available

Total light management for commercial buildings
This presentation will cover lighting control in the office space. We will review the fundamentals of lighting control in this space, the economic and social motivators for lighting control in offices, and we will apply lighting control to the key spaces within in an office and outline the benefits.

Light is very powerful and includes controlling the impact of the sun on a space as much as control of the electric light. A good balance of sunlight (and resulting glare) and electric light creates a more idealised environment for both comfort and energy efficiency.

Fabric and Tapestries - How to Choose the Best Solar Protection for Windows: Fabric Blinds
Choosing the right fabric is essential to ensuring cost-effective, environmentally-friendly and aesthetically pleasing solution.
By selecting the right fabric you can increase daylight harvesting and in turn, reduce electric light consumption. Occupants’ comfort and productivity can be greatly improved with greater glare control. Additionally, codes and standards such as BREEAM and LEED can be exceeded by maximising energy efficiency, daylight and views, and environmentally-friendly materials.
Once you have attended our CPD you will be able to:
• Understand the advantages and disadvantages between fabric materials and compositions
• Identify various weave patterns and structures
• Recognise commonly referenced solar performance terminology
• Understand what factors and variables can affect the performance of a solar screen fabric
• Determine how to choose the best fabric considering a project’s priorities or site analysis
Material type: Seminar
Innovative Light Management Solutions
The purpose of this seminar is:
- To introduce energy saving/sustainability through differing light control strategies
- Increase productivity and comfort in the workplace
- To help you make informed choices and decisions when designing or considering a light control project within a large or small commercial space
Material type: Seminar
