Cleanroom or clean room environments are extremely specialized with requirements for each technology brought into the space. Cleanroom lighting is no exception. But what is a cleanroom? Read on to learn more.
What is a wall pack light, and what applications benefit from it?
Wall pack lights or exterior building lights are terms that describe the outdoor lighting that is commonly mounted on the outside facing walls of buildings. This type of exterior lighting is generally used to provide illumination to ground areas frequented by vehicles and pedestrians. They also function well as an added layer of security for property owners. It is not uncommon to see multiple fixtures mounted on a single building or wall, with the fixture spacing designed to provide even lighting around the grounds. Below are a few image examples of conventional wall pack lighting mounted on an exterior wall.
A troffer is a rectangular or square light fixture that typically fits into a modular dropped ceiling grid, often described as “recessed." Historically, troffer fixtures have been designed to accommodate standard fluorescent lamps like T12 or T8 bulbs. However, now troffer lighting is available in LED. Below we will look at three primary benefits to using this technology in your facility.
Before we describe the issues with fluorescent troffer lighting, we should first define what it is. The term troffer refers to indoor lighting fixtures that are mounted within a ceiling or ceiling grid. Troffer lights are usually installed in the following types of locations: commercial lighting, industrial lighting, retail lighting, warehouse lighting, office lighting, and classroom lighting applications. Below we will explore three common problems with troffer lighting, including high energy costs, high maintenance costs, and poor lighting performance.
When we discuss parking lot lighting, we referencing the pole mounted lights frequently seen in parking lots around the country. These outdoor light fixtures, if converted to light emitting diodes (LED) can provide excellent benefits to both building owners and facility managers alike.
Parking lot lighting is a term used to describe the outdoor lighting that is commonly mounted on poles and located in parking lots, pathways, and driveways. This type of exterior lighting is generally used to provide illumination for vehicles and pedestrian to use.
In the world of lighting, the high bay is a fixture that you would find in a warehouse, a factory, a gymnasium, or any large open area with relatively high ceilings. Many existing high bay lighting and low bay lighting applications utilize high intensity discharge (HID) lamps such as metal halide or high pressure sodium lamps.
High bay and low bay lighting are terms used to describe the indoor lighting that is commonly mounted via a pendant or chain, or directly to a ceiling or ceiling girder. These types of lights are often mounted higher than recessed troffer or fluorescent lights. Common uses for this type of lighting are: warehouses, industrial facilities, commercial lighting spaces, retail areas, and gymnasiums.
LED fluorescent tube replacements provide a range of cost, maintenance, and performance benefits to facilities utilizing fluorescent light fixtures. Managers often ask how they can integrate LED lighting into their existing fixtures. Meaning do they use LED tubes in their current lighting configuration, or instead do they replace the entire fixture? We’ll look at the primary drivers to migrate your current lighting to T8 LED bulbs.
Fluorescent lighting is a technology that is commonly used to provide illumination for settings such as commercial lighting, industrial lighting, classroom lighting, and retail lighting. The sizes, light colors, and wattage of fluorescent tubes vary significantly. An attribute of fluorescent lighting is that the lamps themselves are mounted within a fixture (for example, a recessed troffer), often containing between 1-8 lamps, with the fixtures themselves mounted in, directly on, or hanging from a building’s ceiling. Below are three common problems with fluorescent lighting that are often overlooked.
