Practical advice on commercial lighting from LED retrofts to lighting design


Lighting Terms Glossary: 2018 Edition

Posted by Brittany Woodard on



As we start a new year full of new retrofit, design, and maintenance projects, we've updated our Lighting Terms Glossary to include some important terms that you'll want to be aware of this year. 

Who is this lighting glossary for?

If you are responsible for store design, facility maintenance, new construction projects, or energy costs for your company, it's critical to stay on top of the most commonly used lighting terminology. And this lighting glossary will be a helpful resource. 

Lighting jargon doesn't have to be complicated. Our hope is that this resource serves as a helpful tool for you in communicating effectively during your project meetings and selecting the right product throughout the year.

Some of the newly added information includes visual diagrams as well definitions of:

  • Lighting as a Service
  • Program Start Ballasts
  • LED Conversion/LED Retrofit
  • R9 Color Rendering Value
  • And more
