Industrial lighting brings innumerable, indispensable benefits to any organization First and foremost among these benefits are energy efficiency and safetyIndustrial lighting brings innumerable, indispensable benefits to any organization. First and foremost among these benefits are energy efficiency and safety. Proper illumination of factories, warehouses, docks, and parking lots provides employees with carefully calculated levels of light optimized to help them work and move about without injury. This light should be sourced from the most energy saving industrial light fixtures possible, and ideally, these fixtures should be American made, built to last, and warranted in writing to cover all possible contingencies related to maintenance and replacements down the line.
If workers stand or move in dark spots or shadows, it's time to invest in new industrial lights to make sure they can see what they are doing. This will have the immediate, secondary effect of improving overall site security. Well-positioned outdoor industrial lighting with motion sensors can build a perimeter of light that maintains the security of your facility. RLLD Commercial Lighting has a wide selection of industrial floodlights, wall packs and spotlights that integrate seamlessly into all of the major security systems in today's manufacturing environment.
To know which industrial lights your clients need, you have to first perform (or have performed for you) a very systematic and thorough photometric analysis of the facility and surrounding acreage. Walkways, parking lots, shipping docks, storage space, building exteriors, and landscapes all require different levels of light. Only with a point-by-point schematic of the site can you determine the exact number of fixtures to install, where to position them, and what types to propose.
Being methodical in these early planning stages will pay off when you get to the negotiating table, because your streamlined proposal will stand out from those of your competitors who did not take the time to weigh all of these factors and proposed either too many fixtures, or industrial fixtures that are bright, but do not offer the very best possible LPW rating.

Finding the best energy saving options for your client means determining which lamping option saves your client the most money on power costs without sacrificing vertical or foot candle levels. The key to accurately determining this lies in calculating the necessary level of lumens versus the amount of energy the lamp you have in mind consumes. The location, size, and purpose of your client?s facility will provide the critical data you need for these calculations. Halogen lamps produce a wide, intense beam spread and work very well in parking lots, building loading docks, and exterior walkways. Fluorescent lamps proliferate the ceilings of warehouses and factories, utilizing gas vapor, electronic ballasts, and energy saving engineering designs that help companies reduce power costs. Rapidly evolving LED technology is rapidly overtaking both, and may soon rival, if not out compete all together, even the brightest of HID in the near future.
Once you have pinpointed a lamping option, it is now much easier to select from any number of fixture designs we have available. Industrial lighting manufacturers make fixtures for all indoor and outdoor environments, and they design these fixtures to mount on the sides of walls, below overhangs, on poles, on ceilings, and even on hand-held mounts for portable industrial lighting uses. Interior, exterior, and portable industrial lighting fixtures vary considerably in size according to the specific tasks they support and general environment they are meant to illuminate. Some industrial lights work best when networked in a series, while others work better as standalone fixtures.
Of course, performing all the necessary photometric calculations for an indoor/outdoor industrial lighting system, and developing a point-by-point installation plan, can be a laborious task to work out manually even for a large organization with substantial human resources. Smaller contractors and sole proprietor electrical design and lighting specialists have little, if any time, to do all this math and run their businesses at the same time.
