A well lit space always begins with a plan. Whether illuminating a factory, warehouse, garage, offices, or any other large space, creating a lighting layout first will ensure that lighting is installed in all the right places. An LED lighting layout not only takes into consideration where to place lights, but it also takes into account what types of LED lights to use and how to power them on. There are many factors to consider when installing LED lighting. A photometric study from LED experts can make the process happen efficiently from start to finish.
What Are Photometrics?
Photometry is the study of light, and in the commercial lighting industry, photometric studies are often utilized to evaluate a space and take into account all factors for lighting. It can be important to think ahead and consider aspects such as the size of a space, any obstacles that may be in the way as a project comes together, or various other factors that could affect proper lighting. Using photometric studies and a specialized computer program, experts in the LED industry are able to equip a commercial property with quality lighting, both indoor and outdoors, as well as take into account such things as total output, brightness, uniformity, and intensity.
LED Lighting Designs
A commercial lighting layout design has significant value in not only lighting up a space efficiently, but also in seeing to the more minor details, such as if an electrical system can handle all the necessary lighting. LED architectural lighting options are provided that fit with building design and maximize function. Included in an LED architectural lighting design are the placement of LED lighting fixtures, footcandle calculations to identify how much light hits a given surface, a heatmap to show the disbursement of light, and a luminaire schedule that give the details of each lighting fixture and its placement.
