Glare, Reflections and Shadows

Continental's external suppliers/manufacturers find information on our requirements to an ergonomically correct designed machine.

To be considered during the design process:

  • Position of lighting, e.g. arrangement of linear lighting parallel to the window
  • Appropriate incorporation of direct light sources, e.g. downlights
  • Use of matt, low-reflectance surfaces
  • Appropriate choice of color for balanced brightness and a balanced contrast
  • A mix of diffuse lighting with reflected and direct and direct glare
  • Avoid harsh shadows
  • Homogenous luminance over the face and the working area
