The great diversity of the rooms which make up this type of complex means that when studying lighting for tourist structures a clear distinction must be drawn between the different functions of light: from lighting restaurants to lighting hotel rooms, from lighting meeting rooms to lighting shops.
Generally speaking, as well as the quality of the light in terms of the tone and respect for colours, it is important to identify solutions which reduce energy consumption and minimise maintenance.
Indoor wall-mounted and wall-recessed luminaires, indoor ceiling-mounted luminaires, indoor recessed luminaires and indoor pendant luminaries are the most widely used types of products, normally with light control systems which facilitate control, reducing consumption and allowing scheduled maintenance.
The lighting of tourist structure exteriors is differentiated depending if these areas are intended for vehicles, such as roads and car parks, or for guests on foot. For street lighting and car park lighting, pole-mounted luminaires and outdoor floodlights are normally used. Pedestrian and garden areas are fitted with pathway luminaires, ground- and floor-recessed luminaires and outdoor floodlights.
