LED Autohausbeleuchtung im Autohaus Degner


Playing with the design element light can make your car showroom a world of experience for your customers. Spotlight vehicles on display by placing them on special lighted islands, and use different light densities as a medium to lead customers through the paths in your showroom. Well-thought-out lighting in your car showroom can lead your customers through the space by setting the right accents, and steering the customer’s attention to favoured products. 

Especially LED lighting elements are ideal for designing a personalised world of experience. In this way, you can stir emotions—one of the most important criteria in the decision-making process towards buying. Intelligent control systems tailor your world of experience to the time of day. Exciting light-and-dark contrasts come into play alongside plain island presentations that allow a specific vehicle to shine in the foreground. With LED lighting there are no limits to creativity. No other technology permits these possibilities. 

Through the notably low electricity used by LED lights, you can make an additional profit of up to 65 percent through reduced electricity use.

Minimum Requirements for Lighting in Car Showrooms

Lighting in car showrooms is an unavoidable design element. But there are security aspects that must be fulfilled that are outlined in the DIN standard. Especially in the reception areas, in offices, and in the showroom, these guidelines need to be met. 

Lighting in car showrooms demands special requirements for planning the lighting system and the installation of LED lighting, due to expansive glass facades and high ceilings. For example, an uncluttered ceiling can have a positive effect on mirroring surroundings in vehicle varnishes. Here, LED luminaires are ideal, since they are made with a glare-free covering and therefore give off glare-free light. They evenly spread light in large rooms and are high-end in appearance. 

The Right Lighting for Your Car Showroom

Glare-free lighting in car showrooms is essential for the right illumination. Glare-free covers on our industrial lights provide diffused, glare-free light. These special product covers installed on our lights are extremely translucent and break-proof, manufactured by leading specialists in an extrusion process. Depending on the lighting situation, the beam angles of LED luminaires can be adjusted. In this way, light can be used for bigger or smaller surface areas.

Depending on use, LED tubes, light strips, or panels, can be used in combination to create homogenous and uniform lighting.
