It is always the goal of any commercial building manager to create the safest place possible for anyone working in their building. When it comes to the lighting in your warehouse, this is one of the best ways to ensure safety. Without the right lighting, it makes completing necessary tasks nearly impossible. Choosing the right warehouse lighting should be a thought-out process. Misso Electric is here to talk about some of the things that need to be considered when you are choosing the right lighting for a warehouse.
Lighting that is Best for High Ceilings?
Most people know that warehouses come with incredibly high ceilings. These high ceilings can make it difficult to choose the right lighting. There are more often than not, many different obstacles found in the rafters of a warehouse ceiling. If the lighting isn’t hanging low enough, there isn’t going to be proper illumination to carry out the tasks of the warehouse. Make sure any lighting you are choosing will be low enough to provide the light that is needed.
Reduce LED Glare Lighting
LED lighting is certainly the way of the future of lighting. It provides exceptional light all while using a fraction of the energy that other light sources require. However, LED lighting can come with a glare that could be dangerous in any warehouse setting. This is why it is so important that you remember to use glare reflectors anytime that you choose to have LED lighting installed in your warehouse. This will ensure your employees aren’t blinded by the lights.
Why is CRI Important in Lighting?
The Color Rendering Index (CRI) is something that is important in warehouse lighting as well. It is used to measure a light’s ability to show natural colors. If there is organization that is taking place and labels that are often being read in the warehouse, you need to consider this unit of measurement for your lights. You should avoid choosing any lighting for your warehouse that is lower than 85 because it could pose problems for your warehouse employees.
Choose Energy Efficient Light Bulbs
Any commercial property owner will want to see energy efficient lighting installed in their warehouse. If you don’t pay attention to this detail, you could see your energy bills skyrocket once the new lighting is installed. When you have new lighting installed in the warehouse, you want to see energy usage go down, not up. The only way to do this is to put your focus on the energy efficiency of the lighting you are having installed.
