LQS is a brand new lighting quality standard developed by OMS. It comprised of more than 20 objectively quantifiable criteria used to evaluate both individual luminaires and complete lighting solutions for different types of spaces. The result of the criteria is the LQS Index. The higher the index the better the lighting device or solution is for using in a given space.
The LQS is separated into six elements – Ergonomics, Emotion, Ecology, Efficiency, Esprit and Exceptionality, – with every one playing its irreplaceable part. The first four contain objective rating criteria. The remaining two are subjective but have the same level of importance. Together they create an inseparable complex.
