General Information: Parking Garage Lighting

Types of Lighting Used in Parking Garages

Parking garages have low ceiling heights. LED Garage Lights installed should be low-powered with wide beam angles. The most common LED Commercial Lighting for parking garages are canopy lights, canopy low bays, and vapor-tight lights.

Like most LED Solutions, these LED lights for parking garages are designed to maximize energy savings, reduce energy costs, lower maintenance costs, and provide safety and enhanced visibility for vehicles and pedestrians of a commercial parking structure. These fixtures are essential for a well-lit parking garage providing good lighting and eliminating dark spots with low glare.

Light Levels in a Parking Garage

That varies, as different locations have different standards. Our customers have asked for levels in a range between 1 and 5-foot candles, based on what their cities mandate.

To determine the proper light levels, it’s best to start with the number of foot-candles you need. And then create a lighting plan.

Ideal Foot Candles for a Parking Garage

This is up to the customer and the requirements of the city, town, or county the garage is in. But as mentioned above, the range seems to be between 1 and 5-foot candles. Well-lit garages can have as many as 10-foot candles.

Generally, the more parking garage light fixtures and LED Parking Lot Lights there are, the safer the environment will be.

How Much Lighting Does a 36000 Square Foot Parking Garage Need?

We modeled a garage, 600 feet by 60 feet with 10 ft ceilings, and used our 55 Watt low bay canopy light.  And set the model to achieve an average of 9-foot candles in the space.

It calculated that we required 58 fixtures to achieve those light levels. Average levels to minimum levels are around 2.0. Meaning we have balanced and even light levels across the entire parking garage.

How to Get Rid of Shadows in a Parking Garage

There are many reasons why there are shadows between LED parking garage fixtures.

  • The beam angle on the fixture you have isn’t wide enough and too narrow.
  • The light fixtures are too far apart and you don’t have enough lights installed.
  • Obstructions are getting in the way of light being able to reach where it needs to.

The best way to get rid of them is to start with a lighting plan. We will create this for free for you. It allows us to pick the best fixture for your garage.

IECC Lighting Control Requirements for Parking Garages

IECC requires that occupants be given the ability to reduce lighting load in a reasonably uniform pattern by at least 50% in each indoor enclosed space, with some exceptions.

How Many LED Parking Garage Lighting Fixtures Do You Need?

This depends on the light level you need. It will depend on the mounting height. The lower the ceiling is, the lower the wattage fixtures you’ll need. A lighting plan will help you figure this out. It will give you all the information you’re looking for. Light levels, fixture location, fixture count, and how balanced the lighting is.

Do I Need Vapor Tight Fixtures?

You don’t need vapor-tight fixtures, but here’s a reason to consider them. If the parking area is underground, car exhaust might affect the fixtures over time. Sealed vapor-tight fixtures that protect the internal components. This ensures they operate for a long period. Most of the canopy fixtures we offer are IP65 and are also sealed.

LED Garage Lights with Motion Sensors

We have many LED lights with motion sensors. Parking garages are the perfect application for lights with a motion sensor. They will increase your energy savings across the space.

Are Parking Garage Lights Waterproof?

Some are. Make sure the fixture is at least IP65 rated if you need waterproof lighting. IP68 and IP69K are the best waterproof ratings.
