Code Education

Access to information on commercial building codes.

Each of these codes include specific lighting, lighting control provisions, including requirements for local space control, automatic lighting shut off, and exterior lighting control. They also each have provisions for additional control strategies, such as multi-level lighting, daylighting, controlling task lighting, and controlling lighting in hotel and motel guest rooms.

Each code and each version of the code have nuanced requirements. While automatic shut off provisions may be similar, other lighting control requirements may differ. For this reason we’ve provided information about each code’s language so that your designs and installations can meet the exact requirements of the applicable code.
