What are the important considerations for parking space lighting?

If your commercial or residential property has car parking spaces, it can be very important to light these. Not only does effective lighting help to illuminate your business, it can help keep employees and customers or clients safe. But to make sure that your parking space lighting is effective, there are a number of considerations to take into account. These include:

  • Light positioning
  • Type of lighting
  • Surge protection

Light positioning considerations for parking space lighting

when installing lighting for parking spaces one of the most important considerations is the positioning of the light itself. This is even more important if you are using pole lights. The lighting you install needs to have good coverage, and a number of factors will need to be considered to determine how many lights will be needed, and where these will be most effective to adequately light the space.

What type of lighting is best for parking space lighting?

Lighting for car parking spaces should be LED lighting to save money and to achieve the right level of light and brightness for the environment. LED lights offer a wider range of lighting colours than other lighting types and use less electricity. You can also consider the lighting control that will best suit your parking area.

Surge protection for parking space lighting

One thing that you shouldn’t overlook is the surge protection. This will save energy costs as well as lighting grid maintenance over time.
