Practical Factory Ceiling Lights
With everything from cost effectiveness, carbon footprint, quality of light and health and safety, the benefits of installing LED factory lighting is endless and something to consider for your business today.
Of course, there are many things for you to consider, the building size, the ceiling height, how often certain areas are frequented and how much natural daylight is available, but choosing the right factory lighting can make a big difference not only to your electricity bills but your staff productivity too.
It’s important to consider the level of lighting that will be needed in your factory, as you want an even distribution of light over your space. Dark areas in the internal space are a health and safety hazard, so choose LED lights that have a lens positioned in front of them to spread the light and simulate a uni-directional light source. Another thing to consider is whether or not the lights will be easily accessible if you need to clean them frequently of dirt and debris. Some factories, like metal casting and wood workshops, can cause a good amount of dust, and this can affect how the LED light runs, so if you will be cleaning them frequently with jet washes or something similar, the correct IP rating will need to be considered.
But now to the positives of installing LED factory lights, because they typically have a lifespan of 50,000 hours plus, you’ll decrease the maintenance costs and it won’t cause disruption to your workplace either.
If your factory is a cold or freezing environment LED lighting is a good solution because they can perform particularly well in these environments. As well as this they contain no glass which is ideal for food or pharmaceutical processing areas as it reduces the risk of contamination, as well as reducing the levels of UV light emitted too which can affect the spoilage rates of some crops.
