General Information: Saw Mill Lighting
Best LED Sawmill LightsThere are many areas inside a sawmill. Some areas are dangerous, with constant saw dust being produced as the large blades process the logs and timber. In this case, your best choice is either a Class 1 Division 1 Explosion Proof Fixture or a Class 1 Division 2 Explosion Proof Light. In other areas where sawdust is not common, like storage areas, standard LED High Bays are great lighting options. For hot areas, high-temperature LED Sawmill Lights are a good option.
Using LED Lights in a Paper MillYes, we have many Explosion Proof Lighting Solutions designed for use in sawmills. Our lights are industrial-grade rated for tough environments. We have high-impact rated UFO High Bays and High Temperature LED High Bays and Floods for high-temperature areas. Outside the sawmill, we can provide parking lot LED Lights and LED Floodlights to light up large outdoor spaces.
Using Vapor Proof Lighting in a Saw MillMaybe. Vapor-proof light fixtures are sealed to keep the outside environment from entering the fixture. This gas or vapor would shorten the life of normal fixtures. You should never use a vapor-proof light in an area that requires an explosion-proof light.
Foot Candles Required Inside a Saw MillThis can range from process to process and room to room, but the consensus is between 30 and 50-foot candles. Some areas where wood is graded require a lot of light. Other areas, such as storage and warehousing, can get by with as little as 30.
Can LED Lighting Produce Enough Foot Candles to Light up a Saw Mill?Yes, it can. It all starts with a lighting plan that uses your scaled drawings. And then understand your foot candle requirements for those areas. Many of our lights are designed to replace 250 Watts, 400 Watts, and 1000 Watt Metal Halide lights, 1 for 1. That means you don’t have to install 2 LED lights for every 1 metal halide light.
Before You Buy: Saw Mill Lighting
Retrofitting My Existing Fixtures with LED in a Saw MillYou can. We offer both LED Retrofit Solutions for Fluorescent Fixtures as well as Metal Halide / HPS fixtures. Converting the fixture over to LED is typically as easy as a bulb and ballast replacement, with a few extra minor steps. A qualified electrician would have no problem retrofitting an existing fixture.
Available LED Lighting Mounting OptionsWe offer many of the standard fixture mounting options that you are familiar with inside a sawmill. This includes eye hooks, pendant mounts, and chain wire mounts. Let us know the amount you need in your sawmill so we can match you up with the correct lighting option.
How Do We Know Your Lights Will Work Before We Purchase Them?That’s easy, start with a sawmill lighting plan. Give us a scaled drawing of your sawmill, and we will model your facility inside our specialized lighting software and produce a lighting plan. That way you can see how well our lights will perform before you buy.
