The ADLAB is determined by measuring the light output of a system at each hour during daylight hours on the 21st day of March, June, September and December. To determine the ADLAB, these measurements are then added together and divided by the total number of measurements taken. To compare ADLABs, the systems compared must have the same ratio of Length of daylighting tube divided by the Diameter of the tube opening. This is called the "L over D ratio." Testing must be completed by a certified testing agency.
