Lucideon Guide to Light Reflectance Value Testing

BS 8300:2001 - Design of buildings and their approaches to meet the needs of disabled people - Code of Practice, recommends the use of surfaces with contrasting lightness to assist visually impaired people in their search and navigation tasks, within and around buildings. The greater the difference in the light reflectance values (LRV) between adjacent surfaces, the more likely it is that the visually impaired will identify such differences.

To assist in the selection of appropriate surfaces the LRV may be measured by a relevant method which will assign a value to a given material. 

This white paper describes the process of light reflectance value (LRV) testing
