OK, this might shock a few people. Unlike a lot of other building professionals, we don’t think the subject of luminance contrast is boring, much to the surprise of a lot of people!
In fact, we think luminance contrast can be fun. Imagine using our Luminance Contrast Assessment Tool (LCAT) to check the best combination available, using the LRVs of different paints to see how to get the best result, and being amazed at some of the results you see. Combinations of paint colours you think will comply won’t, and vice versa. Luminance contrast isn’t just about a colour contrast – it’s a lot more.
Use the LCAT to check the best combination available, using the LRVs of different paints to see how to get the best result, and being surprised at some of the results you see.
Still not convinced? Have a play with the tool to see how it can help:
- You can check the Dulux website to select a colour to see the LRV of each colour here.
- Then enter then LRVs into our LCAT here.
