COMMERCIAL LIGHTING SOLUTIONS FOR INDUSTRIAL SPACES

Each industrial space is as unique as the business which occupies them. This is why commercial lighting solutions are not a one-size-fits-all model.

The commercial lighting solutions you choose need to factor in lots of considerations. They need to reflect the type of work that is carried out. They need to fit the space you are operating in and take into account variants such as working at height, natural light and security.

In addition, effective commercial lighting solutions should factor in energy-efficiency and cost-cutting measures. The right lighting can dramatically slash the electrical costs of running a warehouse. This will ensure that your lighting options stand the test of time, are legally compliant and look after your bottom line.

 


Here, we look at types of commercial lighting solutions for industrial spaces and how to make the right decision for your premises.

WAREHOUSE LIGHTING

Commercial lighting solutions for warehouses have very specific requirements to ensure optimum conditions for picking and packing. It needs to factor in how to provide quality lighting at height and eye level. This will increase the performance and productivity of your teams by providing them with the best conditions for work. This reduces the risk of accidents, errors or damage to stock.

LED lighting can tick this box and more. It also comes with a range of other benefits to keep business booming too. For example, LED lighting does not emit as much heat as strip lighting. This means a reduction in reliance on air-conditioning during the warmer months of the year.

FACTORY LIGHTING

Factory conditions can make it a challenge to find the best commercial lighting. This type of lighting frequently has to contend with the fumes, liquids and debris which are part and parcel of the location. The answer is a robust lighting system which can compete without cutting corners on performance or functionality. It needs to be strong enough to provide sufficient lighting whilst also being easy to clean regularly to prevent a build-up of dust and grime. Seek expert advice to get your individual commercial lighting solutions right the first time.

FOOD PREMISES LIGHTING

Industrial lighting where food is prepared needs to ensure hygiene standards are maintained throughout production. Lighting that creates shadows, dark spots or flickers can pose a threat to the efficiency, standards and safety of the end product. These commercial lighting solutions are also highly regulated from installation to maintenance. The solution could be LED retrofit tubes. When paired with specially designed rotating end caps, the beam angle can be adjusted so light can be directed to where is needed, such as an inspection area.

TRANSPORTATION DEPOT LIGHTING

Loading docks, marshalling areas, internal pallet storage areas, truck depots and large external storage areas all provide logistical challenges for commercial lighting solutions.  This goes way beyond installation to also cover regular maintenance and repair when needed from three to 35 metres.

Yet, it is these areas which need the best lighting options to keep the staff safe. This is especially the case when you consider that the fatal injury rate is higher for warehouses than the national average for any other industry. A trustworthy lighting maintenance firm should take this in their stride. The installation of LED lighting will minimise the need for visits because of their robust nature and long lifespan of up to 10 years.

SECURITY LIGHTING

Industrial lighting for security covers everything from pathways to car parks. Commercial lighting solutions can be a great deterrent for opportunist thieves. Strategically placed lighting will highlight vulnerable areas for both the public or would-be intruders. This ensures that every inch of your commercial premises is protected. Lighting has been cited as second only to police patrols and ahead of CCTV as a crime prevention method.

Intelligent lighting, such as timers or sensors, can be tailored to suit both the interior and exterior of your location. This is both for installation and ongoing maintenance when required.

In summary, there are so many reasons why it is important to get commercial lighting solutions right. The correct lighting in an industrial workplace supports productivity, reduces the risk of accidents, looks after the health and safety, keeps costs low and is energy efficient. That is a lot to consider. Leave it to the experts so you can concentrate on lighting up every other aspect of your business.
