Every location has unique needs when it comes to finding the right lighting solution. When looking to achieve the best outcome in terms of dance studio lighting, there are a few applications worth considering. Let's take a look at a few types of fixtures or solutions worth considering for dance studio lighting.
When looking at lamp type, LED should be the frontrunner for this location. There are a few reasons to make LED the go-to for a dance studio. For starters, it offers the best in lumen output to wattages consumed which will save on utility costs every month. LED is also long-lasting, so you won't waste a lot of time or money on replacement lamps. Since it's so efficient at creating illumination, it doesn't have heat loss during operation which is especially important in a dance studio to ensure the comfort of your dancers. LED is also available in a wide range of specs including color rendering index, color temperature, and lumen output so you can get the right solution for the needs and size of the space.
High Bay or Low Bay
Another important consideration in dance studio lighting when choosing applications is the height of the ceiling. While some dance studios are small, there are others with high, extravagant ceilings. It is important to consider this aspect when looking at lighting applications for this unique space. Low bay fixtures are made to accommodate ceilings lower than 18 feet while high bay is for anything over that mark. If you don't consider this factor, you could end up with a lighting solution that isn't able to properly disperse the illumination or one that is too powerful for a smaller space.
Recessed, Suspended, and Surface Mount
When it comes down to the actual type of fixture for dance studio lighting, you have several choices. Surface mount lighting is placed flushed against the ceiling while suspended is typically a fixture suspended on a chain or cord. Recessed is a lighting fixture placed inside the ceiling creating a flatter outcome. While the type of fixture for you may depend on the height of the ceiling, the best bet is usually recessed. Recessed gives a clean look while leaving more head space for dancers to practice whereas a suspended fixture could lead to safety concerns depending on the size of the studio. Recessed is also easier to keep clean and maintain since it has very little of the fixture exposed. It is worth noting that recessed requires holes in the ceiling so if you want an option that doesn't require much change to the ceiling yet still stays out of the way for the most part, surface mounted is the ideal choice.You May Also Like...
