Recommended footcandle levels

Here's a chart that shows the recommended foot candle levels that you will need for various tasks that you might be performing. These are determined by the IES and it's recognized as the authority for these standards. Obviously you'll see a range within these levels and this is just quick reference list. There are more detailed lists but for most people this should give you a good idea of how much light you will need. If you need a light meter we have those on our website. It will help you properly determine what your light levels are or what you should consider in designing any new lighting system. spacer
