Lighting of pedestrian crossings (sign 293 StVO) with additional lighting - Part 1: General quality characteristics and guide values
Beleuchtung von Fußgängerüberwegen (Zeichen 293 StVO) mit Zusatzbeleuchtung - Teil 1: Allgemeine Gütemerkmale und Richtwerte
According to road traffic regulations, pedestrians at pedestrian crossings corresponding with sign 293 have priority over motor traffic. In this case the applicable road safety obligations are taken from Paragraph 823 of the Civil Law Code (Damages), which also covers lighting requirements. In the dark, the pedestrian must be clearly visible when traversing the zebra crossing, in order to avoid accidents. This is only possible by use of additional lighting. DIN 67523-1 applies to pedestrian crossings according to the German directives for the installation and equipment of pedestrian crossings which shall be fitted with additional lighting (R-FGÜ 2001). With regard to DIN 67523-1:1988-04, the quality criteria have been changed to maintenance values according to DIN EN 13201, a minimum value for the vertical illuminance on the crossing axis for pedestrian crossings according to clause 4 has been added and the glare limitation has been defined according to the luminous intensity classes from DIN EN 13201-2:2004-04. This standard is mainly used by manufacturers, power supply companies, public utilities, civil engineering departments, as well as designers of street lighting systems. This standard is a planning standard. This standard refers to the DIN EN 13201 standard series. The Committee responsible for this standard is Working Committee NA 058-00-11 AA "FNL/FGSV 3.11.01 Außenbeleuchtung" ("Outdoor lighting") of the Lighting Technology Standards Committee (FNL) at DIN.
