LED Warehouse Lighting
LED Warehouse lighting is designed for big open spaces that require bright lighting, such as auditoriums, gymnasiums, manufacturing facilities, sports complexes, distribution centers, etc. In addition to brightening the work area, they can improve productivity, reduce maintenance costs and save energy.
Basis of LED Warehouse Lighting
Managers of warehouses may simply overlook their overhead lighting; they may assume the lighting is performing as efficiently as it can. However, in commercial and industrial spaces, high-quality lighting can achieve so much more than just saving energy.
Employee morale and productivity are affected by lighting. Furthermore, poor lighting can threaten workers' safety. In particular, this would be critical if the warehouse is illuminated by outdated incandescent or fluorescent fixtures.
When compared to conventional lighting, LED lighting offers a number of benefits. LED bulbs provide energy savings, maintenance efficiencies, and better quality light, but they also have a few advantages for warehouses and large, open spaces that most people aren't aware of. This is mainly due to the technical differences between LEDs and conventional lights.
Lighting in warehouses is typically provided by linear fluorescent lamps and metal halide lamps. The fluorescent and metal halide bulbs were an improvement over incandescent bulbs, but they still have issues such as handling and disposal hazards and shorter lifespans when compared to LEDs. People are aware of these things already.
In the following, we will explain why LED lighting is better than other types of lighting in warehouses.
Benefits of LED Lighting
While LED bulbs are well known, LEDs are now used for larger applications as well, due to several undeniable advantages, discussed below.
The primary advantage LEDs have compared to older forms of lighting is their lower energy consumption. The energy consumed by LED bulbs is a fraction of that of traditional bulbs, resulting in a sharp reduction in utility bills. The energy consumption of LEDs is 90% lower than incandescent lighting, 70% lower than metal halide, and 40% lower than fluorescent.
Property owners and managers of larger commercial buildings can easily see the potential energy savings associated with replacing a large number of fixtures.
LEDs generate less heat than traditional lights, which is another benefit of using them. A large facility can be kept cool in the summer this way, making it more energy-efficient.
Eliminated Warm-Up Times
Metal halide lamps have a notoriously long warm-up period (15-20 minutes to reach its full power is normal). That's why large sports stadiums turn on their lights long before the sun takes its final bow. Stadium lights have to be on for 20-25 minutes before they are needed to illuminate the stadium. This means they are burning energy even before they are required. As a result, metal halides consume more energy per lumen as they warm up to full power, so they use more energy per unit of light output (lumen). Due to this, many stadiums are replacing metal halides with LEDs.
LEDs are designed to be easy and fast to install, so you shouldn't be fearful of changing all your light fixtures. Consequently, you will benefit from the upgrade without experiencing any downtime. The time savings don't stop after the upgrade has been completed. The need for maintenance is drastically reduced when using LED warehouse lighting..
In order to dim LEDs, specific LED hardware is necessary. It is easy to install, readily available and adds valuable functionality to the overall lighting solution. When LEDs are run at less than full power, they are actually more efficient (as opposed to metal halide bulbs). Additionally, when the device is operated at less than full power, the bulb's lifespan increases.
By managing to light intelligently, facility managers can save even more money. Lighting facilities that choose LEDs for their "smart lighting" solution will incorporate high-efficiency LEDs along with sensor technologies (such as motion detectors or timers) that adapt to the ambient conditions and traffic patterns in their facility. It's known as "adaptive lighting," and it can significantly reduce your facility's energy costs.
Cool, white light from LED fixtures is closer to natural daylight than light from other bulbs. Consequently, they're an excellent option for work environments. As a result of LEDs' cool light, workers can easily discern between black and navy blue in what they are working on. This can improve order filling accuracy or parts identification accuracy in a warehouse.
LEDs provide significant safety benefits. To keep workers safe and guided around the warehouse, lighting can be positioned to illuminate areas that might be prone to accidents, such as aisles, stairways, and catwalks.
Good lighting influences employee productivity. There is less risk of eyestrain with LEDs, which can lead to headaches and fatigue. Furthermore, well-lit spaces encourage employees to feel energized and satisfied with their surroundings.
Capability of Frequent Switching
The inability of metal halide lights to be turned off when not in use without causing problems when reactivated is a major problem. Getting a metal halide back on takes between 15 and 20 minutes after turning it off. Consequently, the lights typically have to be on for longer periods of time than they might normally. Usually, during a lull of 30 to 45 minutes, the lights are left on instead of being turned off because it would be a hassle to turn them off and risk issues when they are needed later. With LEDs, the light output or the device itself will not degrade if they are instantly turned off and immediately turned back on. In other words, you are not wasting energy or compromising device lifespan by running lights you don't need.
LED lighting looks sleek and modern. It instantly stands out for its modern aesthetic.
Safety and Eco-Friendly
UV and mercury are not present. LED lights are the safest on the market since they do not emit ultraviolet radiation or mercury vapor.
A facility's environmentally friendly credentials are also increased when old fixtures are replaced with LEDs. This is because LEDs use less natural resources and produce fewer emissions. This is a top priority for many stakeholders and customers that can improve a company's market reputation.
Warehouses are rugged environments where heavy machinery is frequently used. When compared with incandescent and fluorescent lighting, LEDs are rugged enough to endure the abuse of a busy workplace. As LEDs are harder to shatter or break, there is less chance of an accident taking them out of service. Therefore, bulb and ballast replacement is common every few years. LEDs can reduce maintenance by up to 95 percent.
It isn't difficult to replace a burned-out bulb at home. But, it's another matter when the bulb is 50 feet above you and has to be replaced by a lift with the help of dedicated maintenance staff. There's also the inconvenience of not being able to use the space until the power has been restored.
This is another reason why LED lights are ideal for large industrial spaces. The average lifespan can reach 100,000 hours, which is more than 11 years! This means you won't have to replace bulbs as often. If you consider the square footage being illuminated and the amount of manpower it takes for each replacement, you can see how it adds up quickly.
