Lighting Layouts

Nemalux can assist you to perform site-wide lighting layout design for industrial plant sites, sports stadiums, transportation facilities, public urban spaces, warehouses and many other large lit spaces.

Provide us with your site or building plans and we can perform light renderings or false color studies to show you how your space will look with a specific LED lighting system installed and in operation.

Our light models will give you assurance that the LED luminaires we select will meet your design requirements.

Are you considering installing, upgrading, or expanding an existing lighting system in your facility? If so, a lighting layout study can be one of your best tools for achieving optimal light levels and quality, lower carbon emissions and save on capital investment, energy, operational, and maintenance cost.

Manufacturing plants, industrial workplaces, and warehouses come in a bewildering variety of shapes and sizes, each with different types of work areas requiring their own kind of lighting. A lighting layout study can help managers to make good lighting decisions, which can seriously impact job performance, productivity, health, accuracy, reliability, product quality, and safety.

An industrial facility can be complex, requiring many different types and arrangements of luminaires to light it properly. High-quality lighting helps keep workers safe performing their job functions at optimal levels. Lighting solutions must meet a variety of conditions including 1) the many different lighting conditions found in an industrial workspace with the optimal light levels and color rendering; 2) harsh environmental conditions including high temperatures, humidity, corrosive atmosphere, dirty power, and vibration; 3) applicable fire, safety, environmental and material codes; and finally, long lifetime and high energy efficiency.

Industrial Facility Lighting Design Steps

The IES ANSI/IESNA Recommended Practice for Lighting Industrial Facilities RP-7-01 outlines the general lighting design steps for an industrial facility.

Table 1: Basic steps for industrial lighting design (Source: IES ANSI/IESNA RP-7-01)

Step Description
1 Determine the quality of illumination needed for every particular manufacturing process/step in the facility.
2 Determine the quantity of illumination required at each of the tasks or processes in the facility.
3 Determine the appropriate lighting level required for safety, and ensure quality, quantity and safety are properly considered in the final design.
4 Select the listed or approved lighting equipment, along with all relevant configurations and settings that satisfies all the requirements, including mechanical performance.
5 Prepare a lighting fixture layout that addresses maintainability and safety.
6 Review the energy, economic, and operating characteristics of the lighting system.

Table 3: Reduction in accidents in the metal industry due to increased light levels (Source: Handbuch für Beleuchtung [1])

Type of Task Light level before (lux) Light level after (lux) Accident Reduction (%)
General 300 2000 52
Visually challenging 500 1600-2500 50

 

Summarizing these results for the metal industry, increasing light to an optimal level increases job performance by 16%, improves production quality by 29%, and decreases accident rates by 52%. These are significant impacts on plant efficiency.

Benefits of Lighting Layout

A detailed lighting layout provides facility owners and operators with an accurate picture of an optimal lighting design that meets or exceeds the Owner’s Project Requirements (OPR). A well-designed system meets the budget and accomplishes the most optimal design that can meet performance targets such as illustrated in the targets above.

Modern high-efficiency LED luminaires to have many benefits. Nemalux luminaires are not only designed for robustness, long-life, high lumens output, accurate color rendering, and high efficiency but also to be amongst the most versatile luminaires in the industry. This versatility, such as secondary optics which allow factory configuration of a wide range of optical profiles allows for maximum spacing between luminaires to light a large space of walkway, minimizing the fixture count and saving upwards of 30% of capital costs.

We understand that not every company has its own lighting design department. To make it easier for owners, operators, and designers to properly design an optimal industrial lighting system, Nemalux offers complimentary, no-obligation lighting layout service. Take advantage of our experienced lighting designers, a value worth thousands of dollars of professional design time.
