Lab test of luminance contrast & luminous reflectance

We are a Singapore-based third-party test laboratory, providing lab test services of luminance contrast & luminous reflectance. Our lab is SAC-SINGLAS (ISO 17025) accredited and our customers are from around 30 countries.

Luminance contrast indicates the contrast of surface brightness/darkness. it is important that ground indicators shall be with sufficient luminance contrast, particularly for people with vision impairment.

Luminance contrast is calculated from the luminous reflectance of two material surfaces.

OTM is able to the test luminance contrast and luminous reflectance of floor materials.

Online luminance contrast calculator

We have a user-friendly online luminance contrast calculator. Simply pick two colors and get the luminous reflectance and luminance contrast results.
