8 Glare

Disability and discomfort glare arise in floodlighting. Glare is reduced by:

(a) increasing the floodlight mounting height,

(b) aiming the peak intensity of the floodlights at elevation angles of at least 70o, and

(c) ensuring that the luminance of the area and its surroundings is as high as possible.
