What Is the Recommended Low Bay Light Fixture Layout?

The recommended layout can only be determined by creating a lighting plan that’s specific to your space and needs. Unfortunately, there is no simple ‘one size fits all’ answer here.

How Many Lights Per Square Foot Do You Need For a Low Bay Industrial Space?

Our lighting plan calculations do not calculate this. What they do calculate is the average foot candles across the space, and how well balanced the light within the space will be.

What Are the Recommended Light Levels for Low Bay Installations?

This can vary so much based on the needs and intended use of the area. A warehouse area using LED warehouse lighting with little activity needs less light than a production shop with tools and machines. It’s best to tell us what you need and what you’re doing so we can help you figure out proper light levels.

What Is a Lighting Calculator for Low Bays?

A lighting calculator for low bays is a simple tool that gives you an estimate of how many fixtures you might need. A lighting plan will provide you with the right details. It will give you correct fixture count, light layout, foot candle readings across the floor space and show balanced light across the space. Still, a lighting calculator should never be used in place of a lighting plan.
