What Is the Ideal High Bay Lighting Layout?
The ideal layout provides all the information you need to make a decision. The types of fixtures that should be used, the light levels that need to be achieved, how balanced the light across the space will be, and where the fixtures should be located. Plans take the guesswork out of lighting and reduce, if not eliminate, bad lighting results.
How Do You Determine the Ideal High Bay Light Fixture Spacing?
A calculator will not provide you with spacing. On the other hand, a lighting plan will. The most important thing to determine at the start is how bright you want the space to be. After we get specifications of your space (length, width and height), we can start designing your lighting plan. From this plan, you can see the calculated fixture spacing and light levels achieved.
What Is a LED High Bay Lighting Calculator?
A high bay lighting calculator is a simple tool that allows you to estimate the number of fixtures you will need to properly light a space. It’s a starting point. A better option is to create a lighting plan for the indoor space. The lighting plan will also provide you with the number of fixtures, but it will also visually detail where the lights should be installed or located, how bright the light will be on the floor or work plane, and how well balanced the light will be across the entire space.
A lighting calculator provides rough estimates. A lighting plan provides a detailed report and calculations of light locations, light levels and light balance.
