Factory Lighting Tips

Factory Lighting Tips

Every location has its own unique lighting needs. With factory lighting, this is especially true thanks to the nature of the location. Here are a few tips to help you master factory lighting to great success.

1. Use natural light

In any location, the more natural light you use, the less artificial light you will need to pay for. This rule applies to factory lighting since many locations have some sort of window or overhead sunlight. If you can utilize this natural light, you won’t need as many fixtures running during the day to achieve the same level of light.

2. Choose high bays

Another one of the main elements to choosing factory lighting is the height of the ceiling. Most locations have high ceilings of over 18 feet high. This type of ceiling needs a high performing fixture called a high bay in place to ensure the proper light spread and power. There are high bay solutions in a range of types and designs to help you find the right one for your location and needs.

3. Invest in shatterproof fixtures

Depending on what type of factory you are running, shatterproof light fixtures are a smart choice. If you are working with gases, high heat temperatures, or other sensitive elements, a shattered light fixture can become a nuisance and potential accident waiting to happen. With shatterproof fixtures and bulbs, you eliminate this problem altogether.

4. Select vapor tight and waterproof

Even if you aren’t working in a location where moisture is a concern, a vapor tight and waterproof fixture is a great investment in the life of your lighting plan. This type of fixture will last longer which is important in a location where productivity can be disrupted by such matters as a broken overhead light.

5. Consider LED

While metal halide has long been the standard in factory lighting, LED is quickly catching up. LED is more efficient, longer lasting, and it has a lower heat output than metal halide fixtures. Best of all, it saves money every month on utilities, as well as having an overall longer lamp lifespan.
