Traditional Lighting Can Be Big Expense in Warehouses

Your warehouse lighting needs are varied, and there is much to consider when specifying those needs. Lighting must comply with codes, use energy efficiently, enable productivity and enhance the working space. Lighting is also one of the biggest energy expenses in your warehouse and can be up to 60% of your electric bill. Traditional HID or fluorescent lighting is a drain on your resources. It wastes energy and requires routine and unexpected maintenance. Traditional lighting also struggles to comply with changing energy codes.


LED Warehouse Lighting Offers Savings, Efficiency, Flexibility

The key to an effective solution is energy-efficient, low-maintenance LED warehouse lighting. And pairing controls with your LED warehouse lights brings additional benefits to further reduce your total cost of operation and increase the flexibility of your operation. Acuity Brands is your single-source provider of today's most innovative lighting and controls technology.

LED lighting and controls solutions can help transform any office space into a brighter, more productive work environment.
Lighting solutions for outdoor industrial applications are key to enhancing safety and security efforts.   
Industrial lighting is more than just high bays. Daylighting, wiring and emergency lighting are integral auxiliary components for any facility.   

A: Savings will depend on several factors including the current type of warehouse lights, but your lighting energy use reduction with LED warehouse lighting could be as high as 70%, depending on the efficiency of the warehouse lights, and with controls it could go as high as 80%. 

A: Several aspects must be considered, the ceiling height, temperature and internal traffic to mention a few. Selecting different options in LED warehouse lighting, according to the tasks being performed, is also recommended. For example, the lower parts of the racks and the inspection areas could be illuminated with stronger lights to improve the accuracy of inspection processes and easy finding of fast-turning inventory parts.

A: As in other facilities, LED lighting for warehouses can generate enhanced energy savings when integrated with occupancy sensors, daylight harvesting and other controls. Minimum requirements and regulations change by state, and California currently has the most advanced code. Request a free audit by Acuity Brands if you need help with your warehouse lights.

A: Yes, but the motion detection sensors must be wall mounted at a height lower than 45 feet to prevent a loss in accuracy. We also recommend using the XPoint wireless control for ease of installation, because wiring a high-ceiling warehouse can be costly and time consuming. LED warehouse lighting operated with controls can achieve up to 80% energy savings compared to HID lights without controls
