What’s a Warehouse Lighting Design Calculator?
A warehouse lighting design calculator is an estimation tool that helps to quickly determine how may lights you need in a warehouse space based on its dimensions and foot candle requirements.
You can enter some basic information – room dimensions, the fixtures lumens and the desired foot-candles you are trying to obtain. It returns a number of LED fixtures you need to meet your foot candle requirements
What it isn’t?
This tool is a good start. However, it does not show you where the fixtures should be located and how well the light is distributed between lights using the fixture you chose.
While the information it provides is useful, its not enough. To get the entire picture of converting your warehouse to LED, you should consider a warehouse lighting plan.

Warehouse Lighting Design Plans gives you a hard copy report of what the lighting could be in your warehouse space. Using special lighting photometric software, it simulates your warehouse area by allowing you to specify the size of the area and either fixture count or desired foot candle measurements.
It then produces a pdf report detailing your space, showing the light locations, foot candle measurements, and how even the light distribution is.

The lighting plan shows 4 rows of 9 150 Watt LED UFOs to achieve 30 fc with uniform light distribution. Notice the average to maximum ratio of 1.85.
This means the average foot candles to maximum foot candle ratio is very small – meaning – light distribution is extremely even and well distributed across the entire space.
