Frequently Asked Questions

There are a lot of options to choose from when it comes to LED Lights for Auditoriums. Browse the list below or call (888) 423-3191 to speak with a lighting expert. We’ll do our best to support you in this process.


What Types of Lights Will You Find in an Auditorium?

A variety of lights. We have seen High Bay LED Lights, low-bays, and in-ceiling metal halide can lights. In each of these cases, we have LED Lights for Auditoriums designed to replace your existing lights.

What Are the Auditorium Aisle Lighting Code Requirements That You Need to Follow?

You should consult with your local building inspector about any requirements.

Can You Use Flood Lights in an Auditorium?

You can, if that makes sense. It really depends on where your lights are currently located. And if you are currently using LED Flood Lights. If your lights are ceiling mounted, it’s far easier to achieve well balanced lighting from above.

Are Can Lights the Best Option for an Auditorium?

They are a good option, but whether they’re best for you is completely up to how well they light the space below. We have retrofitted many metal halide can lights with high-power metal halide retrofit kits. So, if this is what your current auditorium has, then we can still use these fixtures.

What Wattage Lights Should Be Used in an Auditorium?

We recommend that you first determine your required light levels in terms of foot candles and light styles, and then create a lighting plan that achieves this. The lighting plan will determine the appropriate lighting. It will also find the wattage/lumen package / optic package to meet your needs.

What Is the Best Light Level for My Theater?

There are many different levels you may want to achieve. There’s the all-bright mode when people are coming in or leaving, or when your maintenance staff is in the area. There are also the light levels needed when the auditorium show is happening.

What Is the Best Color Temperature When I Select LED Lights for Auditoriums?

In this case, we could see uses for 3000K, 4000K, and even 5000K. It really depends on the intent of the auditorium and how it’s used.
