How Do I Plan the Lighting Layout of a Factory?
You don’t have to do that yourself, our lighting plan service does that for you. As we stated above, we first need some information from you. Give us the building dimensions, light levels needed, quantity and wattage of current fixtures, and voltage input. We will do the rest and create a factory lighting design. Our lighting plan will calculate the total number of factory lights and industrial light fixtures needed and placement.
What are the Main Benefits of Creating a Factory Lighting Plan?
t removes many of the risks of blind light purchases. Buying lights and hoping for good results has a low probability of success. Two things to understand are how many lumens the lights produce and the beam angles they have. Without those, it can result in light levels that aren’t what you want. Too bright or too low lighting, lighting that is not balanced and full of shadows (spotty lighting).
Creating a lighting plan will resolve these issues in the software before any money is spent.
What is the Best Way to Design a Factory Lighting Plan?
The best way to start is with either a scaled floor plan or if it’s a large open space, the dimensions of the area. It is also important to know the mounting height of the fixtures, and the desired light levels you will need.
This is measured in foot candles. If you do not know the amount of light you need, tell us the use of the space and we can recommend the proper light level. From this information, we will have the basis for creating a lighting plan.
Are There Any Factory Lighting Standards I Should Be Aware Of?
There are some general factory lighting requirements you should follow. You need to understand OSHA safety requirements. But for the most part, OSHA requirements are the bare minimum you need to maintain a safe environment.
Typically, recommended lighting levels are much higher. The more assembly and detailed work there is, the higher the foot candle requirements. The range for most factories is between 30 and 100+ foot candles. If you have a light meter, measure your existing light levels, and determine if it’s too little, too much, or just right.
From there, we will adjust the plan by using different light fixtures and other techniques.
What are the Ideal Factory Lighting Levels? Foot Candles? Lux?
The ideal light levels vary from one facility to another. At the low end, 30 foot candles might be enough. But in facilities where fine detailed assembly occurs, more light is needed. It may be a combination where facilities are split into different functioning areas. Different light levels in each area might be the right approach. If you think in terms of factory lighting lux levels, then 300 lux is the low end of the light level you want to have.
Should I Have a Lighting Plan Run When Updating Factory Lighting?
You don’t need to but it’s never a bad idea. Once you know the ideal light levels you need (foot candles), we create a lighting plan to show you how to achieve that.
In almost every case, we use a light that consumes less watts and power.
