We’ve seen how LED lighting can impact business directly; from lighting food, displays, and saving businesses money, the applications for LED’s in a business environment are endless. The same can be said for LED lighting in the home; screw-in bulbs to outdoor flood packs. The point is this: LED technology is versatile. It can even be extended into more industrial environments, like warehouses, which serve as an important component of the business supply chain. It might not be an application which consumers think of immediately, however this step in the process indirectly affects the prices that consumers pay for their goods.
Lighting is just a part of the new technologies and material handling procedures that the warehousing world is experiencing, but it’s also one of the most important. Lighting is responsible for half to three quarters of a warehouse facility’s lighting needs. Overhead lights are needed in loading areas for general illumination for better safety during loading procedures. Supplemental lights may also be needed to further improve illumination in certain cases. At workstations low glare lights that enable office staff to comfortably read documents is needed. Good horizontal and vertical illumination is required for open storage areas as the aisles may be repeatedly reconfigured.
Similarly good lighting is needed in rack storage areas. Besides these, lighting levels in a warehouse depend on the activity pattern, space design (open or confined), age and visual acuity of workers and size of items. LED lighting can be used in any of these areas of a warehouse and save on maintenance and energy costs. In the long run, workers will be able to focus more on their job in a comfortable environment without worrying about lighting outages which render a particular area of the warehouse dark and unsafe.
