LIGHTING BREWERIES & DISTILLERIES
When considering LED lighting for a brewery, several factors need to be considered including colour temperature, enclosed luminaire fittings, glass-free options, and of course, the substantial energy savings that can be achieved and maintenance savings that can be eliminated.
Choosing on the correct colour temperature for your brewery will have an impact on the production process. For example, if a Warm (3,000K) colour temperature is selected, it may make the alcohol appear darker in colour. Daylight (6,000K) colour temperature may make the alcohol look too blue/white in appearance. For brewery lighting, we recommend Natural (4,000K) colour temperature to be used as this will make it easier to assess alcohol batches in the production cycle.
Traditional fluorescent and metal halide lighting generates heat whereas LED lighting is cooler to run, ensuring that the temperature within the brewery is cool, preventing spoilage of the production cycle. The Society of Lighting recommends that all drink preparation environments should have enclosed luminaires that can be easily cleaned to avoid contamination with the production cycle. For areas which have medium to high reflective surfaces, it is advised that diffused luminaires are used to ensure staff are not operating equipment in their own shadow.
When switching to LED lighting, glass-free luminaires should be considered, such as the Goodlight G5 LED Batten which features an polycarbonate lens, replacing fluorescent tube lighting commonly found in production factories. Our brewery LED lighting solutions include LED Battens, LED Tubes, LED Low Bays and LED High Bays. All Goodlight LED lighting has a performance lifespan of 50,000 hours and guaranteed for 5 years against failure. The range consists of glass-free LED luminaires which are perfect for drink production environments.
Some areas of the brewery may be unoccupied for some time, in this case, we recommend Light Boss, an innovative, SMART Wireless Lighting Control system which allows building operators to monitor, automate and control their lighting wirelessly, from a single platform. Light Boss is compatible with all Goodlight LED luminaires and can be retrofitted into existing buildings or installed into new builds, too. Light Boss can be set up to report on all connected lighting, illustrating areas of high energy usage, allowing building managers to tweak settings to ensure maximum energy savings. Typical energy savings from installing Light Boss can be up to 95%, find out more here.
Our range of super-stylish LED Battens are the ultimate replacement to fluorescent T5 and T8 tubes and battens. All of our Batten luminaires are encased, featuring a shatterproof, opal polycarbonate lens which are ideal for breweries and other drink production factories. They deliver up to 130Lm/W brightness and can be used both internally and externally (G5 and Eco LED Battens). More importantly, energy savings of up to 85% can be achieved. Available in a range of lengths, wattages, Emergency and Dimmable options. Choose from the G5, Eco or the Batten Pack. Find out more about our LED Battens for breweries here.
Retrofitting into existing fluorescent tube fixtures, our range of LED tubes have been designed to look just like their fluorescent counterparts but with the added energy efficiency. The T8 LED Tubes are the best LED Tube on the market – with options to include true ‘Plug and Play’ options – allowing you to replace existing tubes instantly with no need to rewire or bypass the ballast. Our T8 LED Tubes have also been approved by the London Underground, suitable for use on the Transport for London network. The Goodlight LED Tubes performance is second to none, featuring rotatable pins to allow full flexibility of the light source upon installation. Our LED tubes are glass-free, featuring a polycarbonate, glass-free lens that diffuses the light beautifully. Available in a range of lengths, wattages and Emergency and Dimmable models.

LED HIGH BAYS
Designed to illuminate busy, working areas including factories and production environments, our LED High Bays replace traditional metal halide high bays, delivering up to an incredible 135Lm/W. The range includes reflector, pendant and linear models, which are protected to IP65 – suitable for indoor and outdoor applications. The GX1 LED High Bay features Phase Change Technology which draws heat away from the LED. Ideal for installing into drink sensitive environments. Choose from the GX1, GX1 Plus or the GX2 Linear LED High Bay. Find out more about our LED High Bays for breweries here.
