Many people don’t understand the impact that lighting can have on your working environment. When you are working in a warehouse, there are plenty of hazards that are sure to come your way. Eliminating hazards for employees that are working for you is always a top priority for any commercial building manager. One easy way to eliminate some of the dangers that are always going to be present in a warehouse is proper lighting. Burley Electrical Services is here to talk about things that should be considered when you are replacing any warehouse lighting.
LED Lights Reduce Glare
Glare is certainly something that you don’t want to be dealing with in a warehouse with heavy machinery. It’s something that definitely needs to be thought through. A popular light source today is LED lighting. The only problem with this type of lighting is the glare that can accompany it. It is still possible to have LED lighting in your warehouse though. All you have to do is ensure that glare reflectors are also installed to help eliminate the issue. This can help make sure your employees aren’t paralyzed by blinding glares while they are trying to work.
Hang Lights the Right Height
If you have spent much time in a warehouse, you know that there are unusually ceilings found in these spaces. This can pose a challenge for choosing the right lighting for the space. These cavernous ceilings are usually filled with beams and other things that can get in the way of lighting. This is why it is so important that the lighting fixtures are low enough that they get past all of the obstacles. That way, the lighting isn’t obstructed by anything.
Why Does Fluorescent Light Make Noise?
Many warehouses have fluorescent lighting in them. What is often overlooked and then frustrating later is the noise that is associated with that lighting. If you are going to be bothered by the loud noises that are coming from the lighting, it should be a consideration when you are replacing the current lighting.
How Important is CRI in Lighting?
Many people overlook the impact that artificial lighting has on seeing colors and reading labels. The color rendering index (CRI) is how the light’s ability to how natural colors is measured. If your employees are spending a good portion of time reading labels and organizing things in your warehouse, you need to pay attention to the CRI to make sure they have the lighting that is required to do their job.
