What is Lighting Design for Industrial Spaces?

Lighting Design for Industrial Spaces is a process of modeling spaces with rugged LED lighting. The areas and spaces can use indoor lighting or outdoor lighting. This is accomplished with the help of lighting plan software. This helps to create a visual and detailed report of how bright the lighting should be, how balanced it should be, which fixtures should be used, and how many as well as where they should be located to achieve the best results and take advantage of all the energy efficiency LEDs, like UFO high bays, have to offer.

Also, we offer to create an industrial outdoor lighting plan for outdoor industrial areas. This includes high mast and high-power security lighting. This design ensures the outdoor space is properly lit.

This will allow you to pick the right lighting source before you purchase. Nailing the fixture selection and choosing the correct lighting fixtures determined by the plan for industrial applications will help you achieve the best results.

What are the Typical Lighting Standards for Industrial Facilities?

Lighting standards vary from industry to industry and from application to application. Generally speaking, it’s common to see industrial spaces starting anywhere from 10 to 50 foot candles, but this is very general and should not be used as your basis for an industrial lighting design calculation.

How Many Lumens Per Square Foot Do You Need for Industrial Areas?

Lumens per square foot is equivalent to foot candles in that one lumen per square foot is equal to one-foot candle. Once you understand that, determining the foot candles you need can easily be converted over to lumens per square foot. This is typically the first step in Industrial LED Lighting Design.

How Do You Calculate Foot Candles for Industrial Fixtures?

The best way is to start with creating a lighting plan. The result of this plan is to provide a visual report of foot candles defined at points across the industrial space, as well as calculations of average foot candles and foot candle balance.

How Do You Calculate the Ideal Lighting Design for Industrial Spaces?

We would start by using an industry-leading AGI32 lighting design software, and model an industrial space within the software. Once the model is created, we would add lighting and use the software to determine what we need to adjust to meet the customer’s requirements.

Are There OSHA Lighting Requirements for Industrial Spaces?

Yes, there are. They are industry, application, and location-specific guidelines that ensure safe lighting levels throughout the industrial space. They may vary based on where you are located.

What is the Difference Between a Lighting Design Calculator and a Lighting Plan?

Use a calculator if:

  • You are looking for a free, online tool to quickly calculate the number of fixtures you need
  • You want quick, simple, and immediate results
  • You are looking for a count of light fixtures needed based on a specific budget
  • You need a rough estimate on quantity and layout/configuration does not matter
  • There is no need to include specific light balance and shadows in your documentation

Use a lighting plan layout if:

  • You would like a professional lighting plan engineer to review your requirements
  • You need a calculated lighting plan that shows foot candle readings
  • You need to see how balanced the light levels are, and you care about reducing shadows
  • You want to show aiming angles, and light positions in scale within your indoor or outdoor area
  • You need professional assurance that the lights you buy will be the right choice
