How Many Gymnasium Lights Do I Need?
The best way to determine how many gym lights you need is to get a gymnasium lighting plan.
A gymnasium lighting plan uses specialized software to model your gym area. It takes in the dimensions of the room / rooms, fixture location (or new locations), and your required foot candle target.
The software creates the lighting plan, showing you fixture location in your space, foot candle readings on the floor, and a calculation of how well the light is distributed.
We create a custom gymnasium lighting plan for Free. This takes the risk out of your LED purchase.
