What Types of Lights Are Typically Used in a Supermarket?
Is It Best to Use Fluorescent or LED Lights in a Supermarket?
There are several reasons why LEDs provide a better shopping experience compared to fluorescents. The lights do not flicker and hum. They reduce energy consumption by at least 50% or more. They dramatically reduce light maintenance costs. And, they have great light quality specs, making the products on the shelves look good.
Should You Have Emergency Lighting in a Grocery Store?
You should consider adding emergency lighting if you don’t have it already. It provides enough light so your customers can find their way out of the store if the power fails.
How Much Money Can You Save on Your Electricity Bill by Switching to LED Supermarket Lights?
At least 50% or more, depending on the lights used.
BEFORE YOU BUY
What Type of Lights Work Best for Walk in Coolers?
Use vapor type linear fixtures. They’re protected from cooler environments and can withstand washdowns.
What Are Common Supermarket Lighting Standards to Follow?
Light levels can vary in a store, depending on the prominence of the location. Prominent locations could see as much as 100 foot candles. Less prominent but still important locations could see between 50 to 70 foot candles. And for less prominent areas, shoot for 30-50 foot candles. Besides light levels, high CRI, we recommend 80 or above.
Is It Better to Use a UFO or Linear Fixture in a Supermarket?
We like the look and performance of UFO fixtures. Use acrylic lenses to further reduce glare and increase up-lighting onto the ceiling. We can also see 8 foot strip lights and linear fixtures being used. The height of the mounting can also impact the type of the fixture used. In the end, it all comes down to your preferences.
Do You Offer Fixtures Made for Use in a Freezer or Cooler?
We have many lights. Linear style vapor proof fixtures work well inside coolers.
What Color Temperature Is Best for a Supermarket?
We would suggest 4000K as a good benchmark for interior supermarket lighting.
What Type of LED Supermarket Lights Work Best in Aisles?
We are seeing a lot more high bay lights with acrylic lenses used inside shopping centers. The acrylic lenses provide a little bit of up-light. You can consider linear high bay and low bay panel style lights as well.
Do You Offer Dark Sky Compliant Parking Lot Lights?
We do, all our parking lot lights as well as some LED Wall Packs are dark sky compliant.
What Are the Ideal Lighting Levels for a Grocery Store Parking Lot?
We recommend between 3 and 5 foot candles using LED Parking Lot Lights.
