lighting calculation


can u please tell me what is the height of the working plane for the industrial building?

i am doing the lighting calculation for the industrial buildings..

for office area i have considered working plane height = 0.85m from the finished floor level but is it possible to increase working plane height up to 2m.

i want to know is it good to increase the working plane level?


RE: lighting calculation

We normally use 24 to 30 inches for industrial facilities with motors and other equipment.  

Anything higher than about 1 meter would be very hard to justify.  

We use 30 inches for offices.  Desktop height.  Even 0.85 meters seems ridiculous, let alone 2 meters.
