ABOUT THE SESSION

The BUG Luminaire Classification System has some serious flaws that are causing significant problems with exterior lighting design, particularly when municipalities or specifiers attempt to integrate them into ordinances and design criteria. Why is there a new LCS? What happened to the Cutoff system that we were used to? Learn how to correctly apply the IES Luminaire Classification System in lighting design and architecture.
