How to choose right led high bay lights for your warehouse

 Choosing the right LED high bay light for your warehouse involves several factors. Here are some of the important factors to consider when selecting a high bay light:

  1. Lighting requirements: Determine the amount of light you need in your warehouse. This is measured in Lumens or Foot-Candles. The foot-candle (fc) requirement for different types of warehousing spaces are as follows:
      1. General Warehousing: 30-50 fc
      2. Pick and Pack Areas: 50-75 fc
      3. Loading Docks: 50-75 fc
      4. Assembly Areas: 75-100 fc
      5. Offices: 50-75 fc
      6. Racking Aisles: 50-75 fc
      7. Stairways and Elevators: 5-10 fc
      8. Restrooms: 20-50 fc
      9. Hazardous Storage Areas: 50-75 fc

      ( Note: These are general guidelines and the actual foot-candle requirement may vary depending on the specific needs of each warehouse and the type of work being performed.)

  1. Wattage: Choose the right wattage for your needs. A general rule of thumb is to use 50-75 watts per 1000 square feet of floor space. Available at, the PAVO high bay light which offers wattage selectable flexibility meets most warehousing spaces needs.
  2. Color temperature: Choose a color temperature that works well with your particular warehouse. A cooler color temperature (5000K-6500K) is best for task lighting, while a warmer color temperature (3000K-4000K) is best for ambient lighting.
  3. Mounting height: Select a light that is appropriate for your mounting height. High bay lights are typically mounted between 20 and 40 feet high.
  4. Type of mounting: Choose between surface-mounted and suspended high bay lights, depending on the layout of your warehouse.
  5. Energy efficiency: Look for a high bay light with a high efficacy (lumens per watt) to reduce energy consumption and costs.
  6. Durability: Look for a high bay light that is built to last and can withstand the demands of a warehouse environment, such as dust and vibration.

By taking these factors into consideration, you can ensure that you choose a LED high bay light that is best suited for your warehouse's specific needs.
