Glare shields, also known as light shrouds or spill shields, play a crucial role in mitigating light pollution and minimizing unwanted light in car parks.

What Is Light Pollution? Light pollution refers to unnecessary, misdirected, or improper artificial outdoor lighting. It results in light spillage into neighbouring areas, making it difficult to see at night and obscuring our view of the night sky.

Glare shields are accessories that attach to light fixtures to block light spill and force the light in a specific direction, usually downward or inward. By focusing light where it’s needed (such as the ground or specific areas), glare shields help minimise unnecessary glare and reduce skyglow from light caused by light pollution.
