Lighting a warehouse isn't as simple as lighting the typical room in a house. With high ceilings, high shelves of inventory for casting shadows, natural daylight to consider, different types of lighting fixtures, lighting controls (including timers and sensors), and technologies from HID to fluorescent to LED to consider, it can take time to lay out an ideal lighting plan.
While in-depth guidance on this may require an onsite lighting designer, we put together an article you may find useful on the topic.
Meanwhile, though, replacing your warehouse lighting can be straightforward. Maybe not easy (due to the heights involved), but straightforward. Because whether you're using HID, fluorescent, or LED lighting, you can generally just read the part number on the lamp you're replacing. Then visit Lighting Supply and put that part number into the search bar and find your replacement.
Of course sometimes bulbs are no longer made or stocked, and you might need to find an alternative. In that case, you can always call our friendly lighting experts for your options when ordering. (877.231.2852)
