LED lighting in a warehouse can allow companies to reap all the benefits that LED lighting has to offer, such as low maintenance and huge energy cost savings.
Switching to LED lighting requires consideration of several other factors. It is important to consider layout, design, the work being done in the warehouse, a potential outside environment, and much more. After deciding to make the switch from other lighting sources, such as fluorescent lighting or metal halide, then it is time to make other important decisions about how to make the change to LED warehouse lighting.
There are several different types of LED fittings for warehouse lighting. Round LED high bays are designed to replace HID lighting, including SON and metal halide bay lighting from 400 w to 600 w.
Linear LED high bays are best for industrial buildings with ceiling heights from 4 m to 12 m and 600 watts and up.
Linear LED battens replace fluorescent tubes and fixtures both internally and externally in the warehouse environment. LED low bays and floodlights are options for warehouses that have traditional low bay or flood light fixtures.
The next consideration after choosing a fitting is to determine brightness. LED lights vary in lighting output and wattage. Various guides and recommendations can help determine what type of lighting will be right for certain parts of the warehouse. Talk to an LED expert as well to figure out the design and layout. For instance, lifts, stairwells, or bathrooms may not need the brightness required of the actual workspace in a warehouse, and an expert in LED installation can help determine what type of lighting should go where.
LED Color Temperature
The color temperature of LED lighting depends on what type of tasks are performed in the warehouse setting. For instance, inspection work could require a cool color temperature with maximum brightness.
There is a lot that goes into designing LED lighting for a warehouse. It can also be important to consider the positioning of LED lighting, light distribution, using motion sensors, and more. While it can feel overwhelming initially, making the change to LED lighting will be worth it in the long run.
When making the change to LED lighting, be sure to reach out to a professional to be sure the process is done correctly so you can get the most out of it. Contact our experts at US LED to find out more about LED warehouse lighting.
