We offer both indoor and outdoor mall lighting solutions. We can light up outdoor parking lots and path ways as well as indoor areas with high bays, panels, troffers or metal halide retrofit kits.
Frequently Asked Questions
There’s a lot of options to choose from when it comes to mall lighting. 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 Are the Best Types of Lights to Use for Lighting in a Mall?
There are so many different types of lighting used in malls, both indoors and outdoors, which makes it extremely difficult to say one light is the best light. We work with our commercial customers to understand the lighting they have and then recommend lights that would work best for them.
What Are the Ideal Lighting Levels for a Shopping Mall?
There is such a wide range of light levels - and it depends on the mall entirely. We’ve seen guidelines that suggest everything from 5 foot candles to 100 foot candles. And then there’s breaking down the different areas within a mall - each could be different.
What Considerations Should You Keep in Mind When Designing a Lighting Layout for a Mall?
You want to create a bright inviting space for consumers without them noticing the lights. You may decide to choose between direct and indirect lighting, or include domes on high bays to address glare.
How Do You Decide on How Many Lights for a Mall When You Have a Lot of Natural Light?
There are two ways to approach this. First, design the lighting so that it satisfies the light levels when the mall is open after sunset. Then consider dimming the lights during the day to take advantage of natural daylight. We’d be happy to create a free lighting plan for the spaces you want to light up and this will determine the number of lights required to meet the lighting levels you desire.
BEFORE YOU BUY
What Type of Lighting Should Be Used Outside of a Strip Mall?
Shoebox, or parking lot lights, are good for general parking. Soft lighting above the doors, and wall packs around the building will provide high quality outdoor lighting.
Do You Have Recessed Can Light Options? How About Retrofit Kits for Existing Can Lights?
We can retrofit incandescent, CFL, halogen and metal halide recessed can lights. Our most powerful option can replace 400 Watts metal halide.
In Our Mall Parking Area We Have 400 Watt Metal Halide Wall Packs and 1000 Watt Metal Halide Parking Fixtures. What Equivalent Fixtures Do We Need?
We have many options that can replace or retrofit 400 Watt and 1000 Watt metal halide bulbs in parking lot fixtures.
The Lights in the Mall Are at 40 Feet. What Do We Need to Use to Get a Lot of Light on the Floor?
This is where we introduce optics to our lighting. A standard beam angle of 120 degrees is not going to work as well as a 60 or 90 degree beam angle. The light needs to be focused down.
FIXTURES AND FITTINGS
Are Your Fixtures Rebate Eligible from Our Power Company?
Yes, and the rebate availability and amount is left up to the utility companies.
What Color Fixtures Do You Have? We Want Something That Is Visually Appealing.
Most of our outdoor parking lot fixtures are bronze or white, which are by far the most common colors. Indoors, we also offer white and black high bays.
