BUSINESS

When it comes to warehouse operations, several variables can impact productivity and efficiency. Cleanliness, safety and regular maintenance play a large part in making the space run as effectively as possible. LED lighting is another major element that can keep warehouse production rates high.

What Makes LEDs Different

LED lights stand apart from incandescent and fluorescent lighting options. LED stands for “light-emitting diode.”This type of bulb is considered a directional light source, meaning it beams light in a specific direction rather than emitting light and heat in all directions. While incandescent light bulbs release about 90% of their energy as heat, LEDs use thermal management technology to consume less energy while maintaining the same brightness.

LED lights are used for a variety of reasons. They provide cost efficiency and consistent light intensity, and they don’t overheat or burnout quickly because thermal technology controls the temperature of the bulb.

How to Choose the Right Lights

If you’re planning to buy LED lights for a warehouse, consider a few factors to determine which type is most appropriate. The color temperature is significant because it affects the overall appearance of the area. Selecting the right luminosity is also key — if you have a large industrial warehouse, high-luminosity LEDs may be best. Ensure that the lights have a high energy efficiency rating so they brighten the floor while still saving energy.

It’s also critical to purchase lighting fixtures that are as durable as possible. Replacing bulbs in a warehouse is no easy task, especially if it has high ceilings. Choosing fixtures that will last can prevent frequent inconvenient maintenance. In addition, be strategic about where LEDs are placed. A few giant beams may be more cost effective, but it could create an effect similar to looking into the sun. Make sure you know how many lumens are necessary to light the space.

Lighting is an important, and often overlooked, part of a warehouse’s operations. To learn more about the benefits of LED lights compared to incandescent or fluorescent bulbs, check out the accompanying infographic.
