    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies requirements for electric lighting systems for local roads and other outdoor public areas, primarily to provide a safe and comfortable visual environment for pedestrian movement at night. Applies to areas that are devoted solely to pedestrian use and to other areas where there is a mix of pedestrians and vehicles or cyclists. A multi-level specification of lighting performance is given for selection having regard to attributes such as the degree of activity (of pedestrians and vehicles), the perceived risk of crime and the need to enhance the prestige of the locality.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out requirements for electric lighting systems for roads and other outdoor public areas, primarily to provide a safe and comfortable visual environment for pedestrian movement at night. Generically, such lighting is described in this Standard as Category P lighting.NOTES:1 Lighting provided principally for vehicular traffic, e.g. on traffic routes, is described in AS/NZS 1158.0 as Category V lighting and requirements for such lighting are set out in the AS/NZS 1158.1 series.2 Category P lighting supersedes the former Categories B and C in AS 1158.1 1986 and lighting of the type previously categorized as minor road lighting in NZS 6701:1983.This Standard applies to areas that are devoted solely to pedestrian use and to other areas where there is a mix of pedestrians and vehicles or cyclists. It provides a multi-level specification of lighting performance for selection according to the degree of activity (of pedestrians and vehicles or cyclists), the risk of crime and the need to enhance the prestige of the locality.The Standard does not cover the special lighting requirements needed where video surveillance is employed for security or other purposes.
