    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Sets out recommendations for the lighting of indoor and outdoor swimming pools. Recommendations given are appropriate for the conduct of a variety of pool-related activities, whether of a competitive or recreational nature, including swimming, diving and water polo. It is intended to be read in conjunction with the general recommendations of AS 2560.1.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out specific recommendations for the lighting of indoor and outdoor swimming pools. The recommendations will be applicable for a variety of pool-related activities, e.g. swimming, diving, water polo, synchronized swimming and general recreational uses. This Standard provides recommendations both for recreational or training and for competition use, and takes into account spectator viewing requirements. Where lighting appropriate to recreation or training is to be installed, consideration should be given to the likelihood of the installation being upgraded for competition so that provision can be made at the time of installation to minimize the cost of the future alterations. In addition to the recommendations of this Standard the general recommendations of AS 2560.1 should be observed, as applicable. The Standard does not include the special lighting requirements which will apply for television broadcasting (see Preface).
