General Information: Car Wash Lights
Best LED Car Wash LightingSeveral 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.
Better to Retrofit Existing Lights or Use New Light Fixtures?Wet environments are particularly hard on fixtures. So, unless there is a need to use a new fixture, or the fixture is in good condition, then retrofitting is an option. New LED Car Wash Lights are preferable in this case.
The Difference Between IP65 and IP66 Rated LightingThe 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.
Before You Buy: Car Wash Lights
Ideal Lighting Level for Car WashesThere 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.
LED Lighting for a Car Wash TunnelWe’ve supplied wash tunnels with linear vapor-proof fixtures. We have also installed wall packs inside the wash tunnel.
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 Lighting is Better for a Car Wash – Vapor Proof or IP65 Rated?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.
Fixtures with Motion Sensors to Dim down 50% if Not in Use at NightWe have several fixtures that can dim with motion sensors.
Best Canopy Lights for a Car WashThe 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.
Best Bay Lights for a Car WashThe best high bay lights 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.

Corrosion is a Big Concern. Will Your Fixtures Be Able to Hold Up?They should. We even have marine-grade fixtures that can withstand the rigors of saltwater environments. Our LED Car Wash Lights are high quality and have been installed in many car washes without any issues.
If We Have a Failure Because Water Got In, Will You Honor the Warranty?Yes, because water should not have entered the fixture if it was installed and used properly. All our LED Car Wash Lights have at minimum a 5-year warranty.
Are Your Light Fixtures Waterproof?Yes, many of them are. Look for the IP rating icons, they appear for all our fixtures that are waterproof.
Do You Offer Color Changing Lights?Only a few of our LED Car Wash Lights are color selectable. You can choose between 3000K and 5000K.
