General

What Is Laboratory Lighting?

Laboratory lighting provides light in medical labs. It should be designed to provide both general and task lighting. To ensure the lights are installed properly and that the area maintains both brightness and balance, it is recommended to create a lighting plan before purchasing any fixtures.

 

Is It Better to Use Direct or Indirect Laboratory 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 the newer LED fixtures have improved optics to reduce the down light glare. There are also more down light options, so it is the best option to use when you can.

BEFORE YOU BUY

What Color Temperature Do You Need For Laboratory 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.

 

FIXTURES AND FITTINGS

Do Laboratory Lights Need to Be NSF Rated?

If there are particular rooms that need high pressure hot wash downs, including the lights, then NSF rated fixtures are a good option for this requirement.

What Types Of Light Fixtures Can You Use For a Laboratory?

We would recommend high bays, low bays, vapor proof, panels and NSF rated fixtures inside a laboratory.

INSTALLATION

Are There Any Special Installation Instructions For Laboratory 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.

Get a Laboratory Lighting Plan

A lighting plan is a great way to visualize a proposed lighting solution. As well as the lumen output over a given area before purchasing LEDs.

We use photometric software to input the design and adjust accordingly. We add and change fixtures, power and beam angles to get the best and most balanced lighting.
