5 Best Practices in Warehouse Lighting

Smart Lighting For A Efficient Warehouse


While connectivity and safety are by far the essential elements of a warehouse, lighting is another equally important aspect. As lighting significantly contributes to operational efficiency as well as to the safety of the goods and workforce. Our Solitaire industrial park offers one of the most modern warehouses and light manufacturing facilities for businesses looking out for robust logistics and supply chain solutions. A warehouse with the best natural and human-made lighting elements not only reduces accidents but saves up operational costs too. Here are the five best lighting practices that all warehouses must follow:

5 Best Practices in Warehouse Lighting

The Power of LED

Most warehouses use three types of light sources Metal halide, fluorescent, and LED. LED is the most prevalent today. Its price is slightly on the higher side, but its long term benefits in terms of energy costs and savings outweigh its price tag. In fact, they can be customized too making them a number one choice across warehouses these days.

The Importance of Colour

Most warehouses ignore this, but the color of the light is crucial as it can directly impact the workforce productivity. From reading labels to identifying transport marks quickly, the colour of the light can make routine tasks easy and less taxing on the eye. Natural light is the best for this purpose, but lighting needs may change with season and time of the day. Hence, light color must be chosen very carefully.

Making Ample Use of Natural Light

There are some portions of the warehouse which require minimum artificial light as they already have ample natural light. It is advisable to make maximum use of this through windows or doors. Also, these should be regularly cleaned to prevent obstruction from dust and particles.

The Control Switches

Control switches are energy efficient and contribute impressively towards cutting the costs. Controlling the sharpness and brightness can also contribute to ease the work environment for employees.
