What Is the Ideal Pole Barn Lighting Layout?

The ideal pole barn lighting layout is a detailed lighting plan. It shows the physical layout of the pole barn, along with the installed lights and foot candle measurements on the floor. The layout should also detail how well balanced the light is across the space.

How Many Lumens Do I Need In a Pole Barn?

That depends on your needs for the space. If you are using it to store things, then 10-20 foot candles is more than enough. If you’re using the space to work, then you might want to consider 30-50 foot candles.

What Is the Ideal 30×40 Pole Barn Lighting Layout with 10 to 12 Foot Mounting Height?

The ideal layout to achieve 30 foot candles is between 4 to 6 100 Watt LED UFO fixtures within the space. Since the ceiling height is relatively low, anything brighter than 100 Watts LED may be too much.

What Is the Ideal 40×60 Pole Barn Lighting Layout with 12 to 15 Foot Mounting Height?

The ideal layout to achieve 30 foot candles is between 6 to 8 100 Watt LED UFO fixtures within the space. 8 150 Watt UFO fixtures would provide 50+ foot candles within the space.

When Does It Make Sense to Use a Pole Barn Lighting Calculator?

A Pole Barn Lighting Calculator is a simple tool designed to provide a rough estimate of the number of lights you might need. It’s based on space and foot candle requirements. It is not a replacement for a lighting plan. It cannot provide detailed information about light location and light balance, among other things. However, it can give a good estimate of what is needed to light up a pole barn.
