CRITICAL DESIGN ISSUES:
Direct Glare: Select, locate and shield luminaires to avoid direct glare.
Reflected Glare: Select luminaires to avoid a direct component that would
result in direct glare. This is especially important considering that the water
and a wet deck provide specular surfaces.
Target Horizontal Illuminance ( 10%): For recreational class of play: 300
lux (30 fc). For other classes of play, see IESNA RP-6. Refer to UFC 4-
740-02N for additional requirements.
The lighting design should avoid direct and reflected glare on the water surface. Also
consider maintenance and accessibility. Locate luminaires above the deck and at the
edge of the pool to allow for access and relamping.
