Do I Need NSF Fixtures for My Cooler?

You do if food preparation work is being done inside the cooler area. Your local health department will be able to advise you if any particular area inside your facility requires NSF fixtures.

What Amount of Light Is Needed for a Walk in Cooler?

This depends entirely on the purpose and use of the cooler. Coolers used as storage areas need a lot less light than coolers that are used for work processes. In general, 50 foot candles should be the target for food preparation areas, 20 foot candles for support rooms (wash areas) and 10 foot candles for storage areas.

Can You Retrofit Existing Walk in Cooler Lights?

You can, we offer both fluorescent and metal halide retrofit solutions, if retrofitting is something you think you need to do. Otherwise, we also offer new NSF and vapor proof fixtures.

Do You Need Wet Location Lighting for a Walk in Cooler?

Yes, we would recommend this, since coolers also tend to be damp and subject to wash downs. All our NSF, vapor proof, well as low bay and high bay fixtures are IP65 waterproof rated.

Do Walk in Cooler Lights Need to Be Vapor Tight to Protect Against Water Vapors?

Water vapors are not particularly harmful, so if that is what you are protecting against, then look for an IP rated fixture. However, a lot of lights in cooler and refrigerated areas can be exposed to harmful vapors that would shorten the life of the fixture.

What Are the Best Fixtures for Walk in Cooler Lighting?

There is no best fixture for walk in coolers as every fixture is different and has specific uses. Let us know what your requirements are, and we will offer you several options that might work best for you.

What Is the Best Color Temperature for Walk in Cooler Lighting?

We recommend either 4000K or 5000K. 5000K is the most commonly used option for walk in coolers.

How Low Can the Temperature Get Before the Fixtures Stop Working?

We offer some vapor proof fixtures rated to -22F and -40F. We also have NSF fixtures rated to -40F. But, in general, LEDs love the cold and they actually last longer.

Do These Fixtures Come with a Motion Sensor That Will Turn the Lights on When We Open the Door?

We offer lighting with motion sensor options, so if this is a requirement, let us know and we can find the right option for your needs.

Will the Lights Used in a Walk in Cooler Need to Be Replaced More Frequently Than Normal?

No, if you choose the right light for the right application, there is no reason to expect premature failure or replacement. LEDs actually will last long in cold locations. All our lights are warrantied for 5 years as well.

What Mounting Options Are Available When Using Lights in a Walk in Cooler?

We offer hook mount, pendant mount and surface mount options.

How Do You Install LED Lights in a Walk in Cooler?

How Much Heat Do LED Lights Emit?

Very little, and far less than fluorescent lights and metal halide lights.

How Do You Wire Walk in Cooler Lights?
