Warehouse Lighting: Rent Instead of Buy Innovative LED Lighting


Warehouse lighting often involves very high ceilings of between eight and twelve metres. This requires powerful lighting, to provide the floor area with a high-quality illumination that meets safety regulations. Often, the result is high energy- and maintenance costs. By installing innovative LED technology you can reduce electricity use significantly while providing even better illumination. On average, LED lighting reduces lighting energy costs by between 15 and 35%. Depending on the costs of your energy provider as well as operating time, the result is correspondingly high cost savings. Taking the constantly rising energy costs into account, these are arguments that speak in favour of switching out warehouse lighting for savings-friendly LED technology.

More Security At A Lower Price Than Stated in the DIN EN 12464-1

The minimum requirements stated in the DIN EN 12464-1 are based on a minimum for safety-relevant lighting. Since especially work in halls is extraordinarily strenuous for many employees, good lighting of all driving paths, packing tables, and storage systems is for more than just comfort purposes. The better the lighting, the less your employees will feel fatigue at work. Especially for employers this is a risk, since they are often moving between the indoors- and outdoors areas in their work.

Especially on sunny days, the risk of driving into a poorly lit hall is heightened. While driving paths without passenger traffic are said to require only 20 lux, daylight on a sunny day can be as high as 3,500 lux. This means that the vision of forklift drivers must be at peak performance even on cloudy days when driving into the warehouse, to adapt to the reduced light conditions. On a sunny summer’s day, the safety risk increases many times over. Reduce this risk with LED warehouse lighting that is individually tailored to your location’s requirements. In this way, lower not only your costs, but increase workplace safety and the performance of your employees.

Benefits of LED Warehouse Lighting

The benefits of LED lighting in warehouses clearly shows in the previously mentioned savings in electricity costs. But you also profit from LED lighting in other areas. This includes better illumination in general of the driving path floor area as well as of the shelving systems. Through a higher light output, labels on warehouse shelves also become more easily legible. This carries over to the efficiency in different work processes. At the same time, workplace safety in the driving areas benefits from a higher quality of light

Since our industrial LED lighting is not prone to the unpleasant flickering that is given off by fluorescent tubes, our form of warehouse lighting has a positive effect on employee wellbeing. An operating time of up to 100.000 hours as well as the three-times higher switch cycle rate compared to conventional fluorescent tubes are additional benefits.

The robust production of our LED high bay luminaires Concept Light makes them ideally suited for application in tough environments, such as warehouses that are affected by heat and dust.

Renting Across Many Years Reduces Costs Significantly

There are many reasons for switching out current warehouse lighting. The more qualitatively high-end the lighting is, the more efficient work processes will be completed. Safety increases, too, while the failure-rate sinks. An equally important effect is the savings made in electricity costs. However, buying new warehouse LED lighting means making a significant investment. Choose to rent and profit in capital to invest in other areas. In addition, the rental cost stays the same during the entire rental period
