AS NZS 1158.3.1:2020 Lighting for roads and public spaces Part 3.1: Pedestrian area (Category P) lighting- Performance and design requirements.
AS NZS 1158.3.1 specifies performance and design requirements for Category P lighting schemes as described in AS/NZS 1158.0. It also specifies the luminaire data and other data that is needed to facilitate the lighting design and the assessment of conformance to the requirements of this Standard.
This Standard assigns various levels of required performance based on an assessment of degree of activity, fear of crime and the required aesthetic appeal (i.e. barnenity). In achieving the required performance, attention is paid to minimizing adverse effects on the night time environment.
This Standard does not apply to roads in which one or a number of luminaires may be installed at irregular intervals on an otherwise unlit road, nor to additional lurninaires installed in lit roads for reasons of increased security, including instances where such luminaires are typical of those used in Category P lighting schemes.
This Standard does not cover lighting intended specifically as security lighting for building exteriors, nor does it cover lighting for video surveillance. However, where video surveillance is provided, the lighting principles and performance requirements expressed in this Standard still apply.
This Standard does not cover lighting requirements for ‘wayfinding’ or ‘waypoint’ lighting where lights are intended to provide a guide rather than to provide a particular level of ill urn I nat ion.
This Standard does not apply in Australia to public transport areas where the mandatory requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Ct/i) and subordinate instruments including the Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport 2002 (Ct/i) (DSAPT) and the Disability (Access to Premises — Buildings,) Standards 2010 (Ct/i,) (Premises Standards) are applicable. See Clause 2.1.
This Standard is intended to be read in conjunction with AS/NZS 1158.0, AS/NZS 1158.2, AS/NZS 1158.1.1, AS/NZS 60598.2.3 and SA/SNZ TS 1158.6, which specify related provisions that may require consideration.
Subject to the requirements of applicable laws, the choice of whether to install a scheme of road or public space lighting in conformance to this Standard and, if so, which subcategory of lighting is appropriate, rests with the client (usually the applicable road controlling authority). This decision is typically based on factors such as night-time pedestrian traffic flows and other patterns of use.AS NZS 1158.3.1 pdf download.
