3 Tips For Choosing the Right Warehouse Lighting

The lighting in your warehouse should be able to accomplish two main things: enhanced safety and increased productivity. Consulting with a professional electrical company is one of the best ways to ensure that your lighting is working properly for you.

If you are looking to upgrade your warehouse lighting, here are some valuable tips to help get you started:

  1. Choose The Right Lighting Product

It can be difficult to decide which lights to use for your warehouse because there are so many options and new advancements.

Here are a few basic lighting options that can cover your whole warehouse:


  • LEDs produce bright light at a variety of color temperatures, so you can customize it for your space.
  • They don’t need time to warm up, giving you instant access to light.
  • They have a long life span so you won’t need to replace them as often.
  • LEDs are cool running, which means more energy goes into producing light rather than energy.



  • They are relatively cheaper than LED lights.
  • Recently, the color quality of fluorescent lights has improved.
  • They don’t have as long a lifespan as LEDs and so will have to be replaced more often.
  • They have been used safely in warehouses for many years.


  • Natural light has been shown to enhance productivity, employee happiness and mental health.

  • It can be a great addition to your other sources of light.

  • It’s the cheapest form of lighting and can be done simply by adding a skylight or some additional windows.


Safety Lighting Tip: Whichever lights you choose, these should be spaced out appropriately to reduce the number of shadows, thereby lowering the risk of any safety hazards.

  1. Control Options

If you’re looking for ways to cut down on your energy costs and make your business safer and more effective, then you should consider installing some lighting controls. Putting motion sensors which switch off the lights automatically when movement isn’t detected can prevent energy waste and a high electric bill.

  1. Use Task Lighting

Specific tasks in your warehouse require good lighting in order to be done correctly, such as picking stock or reading packages. By ensuring that you have the clarity of light required, you’ll reduce the number of errors made, improve customer satisfaction, and enhance productivity.

What kind of task lighting should you use? This will depend on the style and layout of your warehouse and where the lights can be installed.

“​Hey Nigel, just thought I would let you know our electricity averaged around $630/month before the upgrade, compared with the September bill that we just got of only $370 – much better savings than we thought. The condo board members are extremely pleased!”​
