Warehouse Lighting Design Summary

Warehouse Lighting Restrictions

Warehouses and industrial buildings exhibit unique characteristics, including few windows, high ceilings, elevated shelving, and large floor surfaces. These characteristics lead to the following difficulties in warehouse lighting:

1. Insufficient light – lack of natural light

2. Improper contrast or poorly distributed light

3. Difficult to maintain

4. Dust accumulation

5. Poor heat dissipation

How to Choose the LED Warehouse Lighting Fixtures

LED linear high bay light
Storage & Racking:
Warehouse storage areas, racks, and shelves help optimize storage space utilization, thereby contributing to reduced inventory storage costs. The aisles are relatively narrow and long, making it tough to evenly distribute lighting to cover the aisle area. It is highly imperative to adopt an exceptional lighting system with uniform and high vertical illumination to stay clear of dark and shadowy areas, avoid blind spot safety hazards, ensure safe driving of trucks, and enhance clear visibility of the shelves, goods, and labels. The Lepro LED linear high bay light guarantees excellent light accessibility, clear readability and exhibits glare-free upward visibility. Mobile sensors may be used for intelligent light management.
LED UFO high bay light
Sorting/Picking & Working Area
For lighting designers and technicians, illuminating indoor work areas and logistics areas can be a tricky and complex task. A top-quality light facilitates running and completing visual tasks, ensures accuracy, and avoids errors. Though the minimum light intensity requirement is measured at 300 lux, we should strive for 500 lux at the manual packing table. The Lepro UFO high bay light generates a maximum output of 19,000 lumens of luminous efficacy, providing premium, maintenance-free light from significant heights without adversely affecting and jeopardizing the lighting comfort, glare control, and energy efficiency.

Offices & Filing Rooms
Glare can gravely impair and impact the lighting quality in an office environment and is a profound reason for visual discomfort. It is one of the key elements to bear in mind when choosing LED office illuminants. With an anti-glare diffuser, the LED lights have proved to be a popular and favorable choice for office spaces. Whether you prefer and fancy an LED panel configuration or a continuous LED linear lighting design, there are a variety of options available in the market. Compared to previous technologies, where conventional lighting solutions were utilized, LEDs offer more choice and better flexibility and energy performance.

Warehouse Lighting Features

Warehouse Lighting Features
• In a modern warehouse, not only should the building be spacious and sizeable, but all lighting units must be complete and have a good lighting environment and a comprehensive fire protection system. This enables people to see the conditions in the warehouse undoubtedly. Since the warehouse must remain dry and ventilated, the lights in the warehouse are generally faint, dim, and have low luminance to reduce the build-up of heat. Hence, lighting is extremely critical and pertinent in a storage facility.

For warehouse lighting, • Employing appropriate illuminance should be selected based on visual requirements, working nature, and environmental conditions. Proper light diffusion and the uniformity of lights adopted, reducing unnecessary shadows and making the visual space clear, and the correct selection of light sources and lamps to limit glare, improving the safety of work and activities under the light are highly essential. Flicker-free lights are required to reduce irritability and restlessness. Therefore, it is vital to reasonably choose a light source that reduces the adverse effects of light, heat and ultraviolet radiation on people and objects. Handling light color and color rendering index creates a favorable color discrimination environment for work and life to devise a luminous atmosphere that makes people feel relaxed, comfortable, and beautiful in work and activities.

• When replacing a light source, environmental protection and energy-saving are two major elements that should be considered. Likewise, while selecting a light source with the longest life span to reduce the workforce and material resources involved in lamp replacement, improving visual conditions, making staff feel tranquil, serene, and happy under the light, and reducing the light pollution should also be borne in mind.

Why Choose LED Fixtures for Warehouse Lighting

  1. High CRI Rating- LED fixtures have 80+ CRI rating. High CRI lighting is equally valuable in factory usage.
  2. Light Uniformity - LED lights have great light uniformity to improve workers's safety as well as their working conditions.
  3. Higher Energy Efficiency - High light efficacy means energy saving, low carbon and environmental protection.
  4. More Durable - LED fixtures have a much longer lifespan than their traditional counterparts.
  5. Controllable - LED lights are easy to be controlled, dimmed, and optimized. They can be installed with dimmer switches to allow homeowners the ability to control and select the amount of the light emitted.

Why Choose LED Fixtures for Warehouse Lighting

Requirements for warehouse lighting fixture

warehouse lighting fixture
  1. 1. Meet the requirements of warehouse lighting illuminance. In general terms, the ground flux intensity of the warehouse should be at the very least be less than 50lux, in order to facilitate the identification of cargo labels, etc.;
  2. 2. Energy saving: The intelligent control of the lighting system generates two-way lighting of the warehouse, where one road can be closed during the day and two roads at night to save energy;
  3. 3. Safety: The explosion-proof lighting fixtures accompanied by features such as being waterproof, dust-proof, and giving an anti-corrosive performance should be used to ensure the safe and stable operations of the lamps;
  4. 4. Long life: Lamps with an extended life and high stability should be selected to prevent the increase in operational expenditure or maintenance costs in the later period and ensure the timely maintenance and replacement of lamps;
  5. 5. Restartability: Consider lamps that can be instantly reactivated and restarted to avoid latency time for lamps.

Warehouse Lighting Intensity Design
