Pole Barn Lighting Calculator

What’s a Pole Barn Light Calculator?

A Pole Barn Lighting Calculator is a simple online tool that asks for some simple inputs – room dimensions, fixture lumens and desired foot candle target and then calculates the total number of fixtures you are going to need to meet this requirement. Its a good initial process. To the right, we have added a lighting calculator to use. Please keep reading this post, and learn why this by itself is not enough.

The software calculates foot candle levels and produces a visual layout pdf report. The pdf report displays foot candle measurements at locations within the interior pole barn space.
