Considerations for effective industrial lighting

Industrial lighting is a critical aspect of the manufacturing and production process. Choosing the right lighting is essential for the safety and productivity of workers, as well as the quality of the products being produced. So what are the important considerations for effective industrial lighting and how can you make the right choice for your space?

What are the important considerations for effective industrial lighting?

There are a number of considerations to take into account when choosing the lighting for your industrial property, and these include:

  • Considering the type of work implemented- Different lighting levels are required for different types of work. For instance, intense lighting may be needed for storage rooms whereas low lighting may be needed for precise activities like electronics assembly. As a result it’s important¬†to comprehend the space’s lighting requirements before selecting a lighting system.
  • The size and layout of the facility- The lighting system’s overall performance may be impacted by the distance between and the placement of light fixtures. Smaller facilities might be able to get by with fewer fixtures, but larger facilities could need more fixtures to maintain appropriate illumination.
  • The type of lighting- In industrial environments, conventional lighting fixtures like incandescent and fluorescent lights have long been utilised extensively. Yet, because of its high energy efficiency, extended lifespan, and low maintenance requirements, LED lighting technology is growing in popularity.
  • The colour temperature- The colour temperature and colour rendering index (CRI) of the lighting must also be taken into account.¬†Although CRI assesses how correctly the light source displays colours, colour temperature describes how perceived warmth or coolness of the light is described. The quality of the goods being produced as well as worker safety and productivity can be increased by selecting lighting with the right colour temperature and CRI.
