Lighting for warehouses
Warehouses are a world of their own – large, windowless halls with high shelving constructions and relatively narrow aisles where workers need to move quickly and safely. Ideal lighting solutions are high-performance and durable luminaires with narrow or narrow-wide distribution reflectors and high levels of glare reduction. Optimum visual conditions must exist when looking up towards the hall ceiling as well, for example when sorting goods at high heights with forklift trucks.
Warehouses are also typically large areas only entered for short periods of time and infrequently. To save energy, LED lighting solutions with light management systems featuring presence detection are recommended: luminaires are only switched on if people are in the detection range.
