Illuminated Stairs
LRV's Light Reflective Values

The current guidance in the regulations BS8300:2009 is that adequate visual contrast is provided if the Light Reflectance Value (LRV) of the contrasting areas exceeds 30 points, “i.e., the contrast between the stair edging and the floor covering”. The testing equipment used to assess the LRV of C.A.T. product finishes is an integrated sphere spectrophotometer.
