The assembly hall is not merely a multifunctional space. As a centrepiece for educational institutions, it also plays a representative role. The lighting should create an atmospheric ambience and provide a stage for a wide range of events – from theatrical performances to graduation ceremonies. A professional lighting concept is required because assembly halls, foyers, and entrance areas are used in so many different ways. Optimum ambient lighting is achieved with relatively wide-area light at 200 lux and light intensity uniformity of 0.4. Safety and straightforward orientation are key. Separately controllable light zones are ideal for visually structuring a spacious room. This enables, for example, the stage area to be well illuminated while the assembly hall is darkened.
Smart sensor technology saves energy in the long term, particularly in large room structures. Brightness sensors detect natural daylight and switch on artificial light only when necessary. A flexibly designed lighting management system also offers the option of zoning and accentuating individual areas of the room, for example, by using targeted highlights with wall spots. Variable light colours and scenes deliver various lighting scenarios and exciting lighting moods to suit the occasion. Last but not least, emergency and safety lighting is an essential part of lighting design for auditoriums and entrance halls. Where necessary, independently powered emergency lighting systems or luminaires with emergency lighting functionality provide immediate orientation, and guidance systems show the way outdoors.
