What are the Best LED Car Wash Lights?

Several lighting fixtures would work well within your car wash. No two car washes are the same. What works well in one facility may not work well for yours. We’d be happy to create a free lighting plan for you to assess your exact needs.

Benefits of Using LED Lighting in a Car Wash

  • High-quality, bright LED light source
  • energy savings with a lowered utility bill, savings of 50% or more
  • lower lighting maintenance cost with no bulbs and ballasts to change
  • wattage adjustable and color adjustable options so you can adjust the light for your needs

What Lighting is Better for a Car Wash – Vapor Proof or IP Rated Lights?

Vaporproof light design keeps the inside of the fixture dry and dust-free. It prevents corrosive gases from entering the fixture and shortens its life. IP65 fixtures are not vapor-proof. But they’re designed to keep dust and water from entering the fixture. Also, most vapor-proof fixtures are IP65 or higher rated, but not all our IP lights are vapor-proof rated.

What's the Difference Between IP65 and IP66 Rated Lighting?

The IP system is a way of determining how well lights protect from dust (the first digit) and water (the second digit). The higher the digit, the better the protection. So, IP66 is better than IP65, and IP68 is better than IP66. IP65 is adequate for car wash requirements.

Will Soap from the Car Washes Affect the Lights?

It shouldn’t unless the soap does not wash off completely and leaves a film. The film could reduce lumen output over time.

What are the Ideal Lighting levels for Car Washes?

There are two types of car washes. Self-serve washes where customers wash the cars themselves, and fully automatic washes. Self-serve washes should be brighter than fully automatic washes. Fully automatic car washes should be bright enough for maintenance work and cleaning. For self-serve car washes, 20 to 30-foot candles are a good target.

What are the Best Lights for a Car Wash?

Vaporproof lights and waterproof canopy lights are great options. Wall-mounted wall packs are also a popular choice for wall-mounted lights.

The best high bays for car washes are IP65 plus rated. They provide a broad beam pattern since mounting heights are below 20 feet. We recommend low bay lighting instead of high bay lighting. Tell us your requirements and we will recommend the best option.

The best canopy lights for car washes are either IP6x-rated or vapor-proof fixtures. They should have a wide beam spread as the mounting height inside a car wash is less than 20 feet.
