4 Things to Think About When Choosing Industrial Lighting

If you are a business owner, choosing the right lighting for your industrial facility can have a significant impact on your company. The right lighting choice and layout can boost productivity and employee morale and even help your bottom line.

When choosing your industrial lighting, here are some things you should consider:


1. Do You Want to Pay Now or Later?

When it comes to industrial lighting, your choice will primarily come down to how much upfront cost you want to bear. While standard bulbs may be cheaper initially, they won’t last as long as LED options. This is an important factor to consider because most companies have their lights on all day long.

Long Term vs Short Term Costs

Many business owners opt for LED lighting even though they do come with higher upfront costs because compared to other types of lighting, LED bulbs can last up to 10 years. This increased efficiency means that they require fewer repairs and replacements.

Do you want to switch out your industrial lighting for LED lights?



2. Think About the Amount of Heat Emitted By Industrial Lighting

If you are placing your industrial lights in a space where people work or where you’ll have some customer foot traffic, you must consider the amount of heat that will be emitted by your lighting. CFL lights can get hot and may cause discomfort if they’re too close to customers or employees.

Be Careful of Your Products

Depending on your business, the heat produced by CFL bulbs could also impact heat-sensitive products and lead to higher utility bills by changing the climate inside your building. Most business owners opt for LED lights because they don’t emit any heat at all.



3. Consider Your Interior Design

When choosing your lighting, you have to think about what color scheme you want for your building, whether it’s yellow or white. LED is a great choice for interior lighting design because they are so versatile and come in a range of colors.

In addition, they can also be used as directional lights to focus on a specific product, display, or floor area.


4. Do You Want to be Environmentally Friendly?

Being an environmentally friendly company is a great thing today. Both customers and employees are increasingly conscious of which companies are eco-friendly and a great step towards becoming such a business is by choosing your lighting carefully.

Standard bulbs do contain some toxic chemicals and other filaments in them that can’t be reused. On the other hand, LED lights are 100% recyclable.
