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.

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.
