Warehouse owners must take workplace safety in consideration when choosing a lighting option. It is common to find HID high-bay fixtures and T5 fluorescent tubes in warehouses today, but these technologies are sorely outdated, consume electricity inefficiently and render colors poorly. While initially bright, the lumen output of HID lamps falls drastically within the first 50% of its operating life, leading to unacceptable lighting conditions.
LimeLED recommends replacing legacy lighting systems with highly efficient and bright LED fixtures. Uniform light distribution and color rendering makes all warehouse facilities more operational. By eliminating shadows, you increase awareness of the work area. Consistent lighting allows workers to monitor multiple areas, read labeling on stacked materials easily and prevents accidents caused by poor visibility. Furthermore, the light from HID’s can be glaring due the point source nature of the system. This problem is eliminated by using LED lighting with long operating life and durability.
