Getting the most from your industrial lighting takes planning and preparation. To ensure that your lighting does the job you need it to do, the following are four suggestions you should follow:
1. Consider Color
LED lights can emit a wide range of colors. The clarity of light and ambiance they create will have a significant impact on both the functionality of the space and the morale of your staff. With industrial lighting, most companies opt for LED lights that offer a temperature level of 3500-4000 K for workspaces.
2. Consider Light Output
Too much light and your workspace will feel like an interrogation room. Too little light and it will feel like a cave. Make sure that you look at the net light output of the LED light to ensure that it offers sufficient illumination for the size of the space. When considering what light output is best for your workspace, consider the machinery and equipment within the space, as well as the distance from the ceiling to the floor. This will help you choose lighting that eliminates dark zones without creating an unnecessary amount of glare.
3. Don’t Skimp to Save
It can be tempting to save money by using lower-cost LED bulbs. However, lower cost often means lower quality. Before making a selection for your industrial lighting needs, carefully research the brand and the supplier. You will want to choose a brand and company that offers an acceptable balance of cost and quality.
4. Zero in on Energy Savings
LED lights will save you money on your energy bills and replacement costs. They are designed to operate with a high degree of efficiency for years after they are installed. But, there is more you can do than just choosing to install LED lights. Adding customized control panels and sensor switches can help you dim the lights and turn them off when the space is not in use. This can further enhance the energy savings your business can secure.
