What Is Laboratory LED Lighting?
Laboratory lighting provides light in medical labs. It should provide both general and task lighting. To ensure the lights provide the brightness and balance needed, start with a lighting plan.
Is It Better to Use Direct or Indirect Laboratory LED Lighting?
It depends on the lab and the wishes of the customer. It is easier to provide light when the source is direct. But indirect lighting is the best option to reduce potential glare issues. Many of our Laboratory LED Lighting fixtures have improved optics to reduce glare. There are also more downlight options, so it is the best option to use when you can.
What Types Of Light Fixtures Can You Use For a Laboratory?
We recommend High Bay LED Lights, LED low bay lighting, LED vapor proof lights, LED panels, and NSF-rated fixtures.
BEFORE YOU BUY
What Color Temperature Do You Need For Laboratory LED Lighting?
We would recommend either 4000K or 5000K. We would not recommend 3000K or 6000K in laboratory environments. These fixtures are too orange and too blue on the light spectrum.
Should Laboratory LED Lights Be NSF Rated?
If there are particular rooms that need high-pressure hot washdowns, then use NSF-rated fixtures.
Are There Any Special Installation Instructions For Laboratory LED Lighting?
Nothing out of the ordinary. As long as you follow the instructions we provide inside the fixture’s box, you should be fine. And we always recommend working with a qualified electrician.
