GOOD LIGHTING MATTERS
Lighting in industrial spaces (manufacturing, engineering, processing, warehouses, logistics and sheds) is extremely important to the users in those areas, and the work that is being carried out in them. It also has a direct impact on productivity, well-being of staff, and sometimes even health and vitality.
Traditionally, industrial lighting has demanded energy intensive, high powered lighting solutions, in the form of metal halide, sodium and mercury-vapour light sources. Until now. With the development of high powered LED lighting, there is the option to have very powerful lighting using a fraction of the energy, driving cost-reduction through energy and maintenance savings.
Lighting at heights has also proved very costly when it fails, which is another benefit of LED, with the ultra-long lifespans and added reliability of premium LED products.
Daylight Availability – many industrial buildings have the opportunity to use natural daylight. Either by special roof construction, or by replacing roof panels with translucent panels to let the light in. The objective for any daylight benefits should be to provide a diffused daylight, not direct sunlight which can result in glare and strong shadows.
Goodlight Industrial LED fixtures are suitable for almost any industrial environment. For busy warehouses and logistics lighting, our GX2 Linear LED High Bay is ideal to illuminate racking and aisles, delivering over 130Lm/W, with built-in dimmability, making it ideal to integrate with controls. With an IK10 rating, it has the highest impact protection against accidental damage.
Where a circular light beam is required, in large open industrial spaces, e.g. above equipment and machinery then our GX1 LED High Bay range provides ultra-reliability and peace of mind, with its unique PCM (Phase-change material) cooling. Watch the video here.
Our industry-leading GX1 Plus LED High Bay model, pendant-style, delivers over 20,000 lumens, and is suitable for extreme heights beyond 12m.
For LED low bay lighting, try our stunning black GX1 LED Low Bay with variants from 80W to 280W, which is also suitable for exterior flood lighting with its IP65 ingress protection rating.
Where colour critical work is being carried out, the lighting must have good colour rendering properties, of at least 78Cri or more. This would apply to any areas where components are colour-coded such as in electrical assembly, or where colour-processing such as in a car production plant – Paint Shop, or where food is being processed or displayed – its colour is used to judge freshness.
