How LED Lighting Can Improve Your Parking Garage
May 01 2019
Parking garages are large indoor spaces which can vary in number of tiers, but all have similar requirements when it comes to lighting. These multi-storey spaces need to be compact, efficient, safe and, perhaps obviously, well-lit.
High density discharge bulbs were previously the ideal choice to meet the unique requirements of parking garages. However, advances in LED technology mean there are better, safer and cheaper ways to do things.
What type of light bulb is used in parking garage
While many of the USES of our OEO bulbs are brightness and quality in high-ceiling industrial environments, that doesn't mean we don't also offer low-light options for stars. High shed lighting has its unique advantages, just like our low shed selection.
For example, we have OEO EZ LED VERSA HYBRID GLB. This low-light option is well suited to the low ceiling requirements of the parking lot, which need to accommodate levels such as comfort and safety. At 110V to 227V, the lumen reading is 6,100 LM, which means your brightness requirements will be well met.
Previously, HID and metal halide substitutes had prohibitive installation and initial hardware costs. Now, the initial cost is essentially the same. With VERSA HYBRID, you can also choose to ballast bypass or plug and play direct substitution. This means you don't have any upfront electrician costs, and making the switch doesn't mean you need a new fixture. These bulbs are also suitable for open or enclosed lamps.
Use LED to save garage
However, once you get up and running, the savings are really noticeable. These bulbs will give you a quick return on investment and save up to 70% of your energy costs. These bulbs provide up to 50,000 hours of light without the lumen depreciation common to HID bulbs. Not only that, you will also get a 5-year warranty to ensure your investment is safe.
Energy efficiency means your bill will be much lower every month, potentially saving hundreds of dollars per lighting fixture. You can also use mercury free lamp bubbles, also can use ultraviolet and infrared.
The safety of leds is crucial
An important way to save money is by using motion sensor features that HID does not offer. This is because high-intensity discharge lamps take time to warm up gases and compounds and provide their namesake strength.
With LED lighting, motion sensors can be connected to your lamp and only turned on when needed. This is especially important in unmanned areas such as car parks. You will need some independent lighting, mainly for automotive safety purposes. However, most of the lighting that connects the walkway to passengers does not require their lighting to be 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In addition, if there is natural light during the day, there is no need to manually turn the lights on and off.
Importantly, parking lots can be a place where people's safety suffers. This is because of the relative lack of people and the closed environment. LED lighting with motion sensors means people can feel safer and be lit all the time. This means crime is stopped and better lighting is provided to ensure that vehicles do not crash. Dimly lit parking lots can lead to serious accidents if people can't see the traffic coming and going.
LED lighting used in parking lots can also be used for uplighting and to provide different types of warmth for different environments. It will do all this without compromising quality and saving money.
