Bird's Eye Foods - Weseca, MN

Sanitation and worker safety were paramount when Birds Eye Foods, Inc. selected the lighting system for its former freezer space. The area was converted to a production facility within the company's 340,000-square-foot processing plant in Waseca, Minnesota. 58 Petrolux LED luminaires from Holophane® were selected with illumination levels 40 to 45 footcandles average maintained. Because ceilings are higher than in other locations throughout the plant, the space needed a lighting system than would adequately illuminate the area without blinding workers.
