What are the considerations for designing effective car park lighting?

So, what should you consider when designing and planning your car park lighting? Well, there are several things to bear in mind, including:

  • The level of light
  • Lighting controls
  • The colour of the light

The lighting level for car park lighting

Lighting that is too bright in a small space can cause visibility problems and issues for drivers and pedestrians. While lighting that is too dark is not likely to be effective either. Choose the right light for your space by taking a look at the British Standard requirements, for the size of the space you have, and how busy it is likely to be. A professional electrical team like ours, here at Walker Electrical, can take care of this for you.

Lighting controls for car park lighting

Do you want to light your car park all night, or just until a few hours after closing time, so your employees can close up safely? If you don’t want to leave the lights on all night, paying for something that’s not in use, it could be useful to include lighting controls, so that the lights can switched off to conserve power, and money.

The colour of the light

Using white light is the most effective option for company car park lighting, as this can provide the best visibility for drivers and for CCTV too.
