LED Lighting for Big Box Superstores

The term industrial space is one we often reserve for places inaccessible to the public. They are places you need special training, guidelines and clearance to even enter. Places such as steel mills, food processing plants or military aircraft hangars.

One of the few exceptions to this is retail, but it is an exception. In 2016, walmart was the last company to record a ranking and the world's largest in terms of dollars earned. It is also one of the world's largest employers, with 2.3m people, the same number as the people's liberation army.

On such a large scale, we will need to make great progress in lighting.

What is a big box store?

Because the size of the product is located in it, large stores are called. They are still a shop. Customers come in, browse for what they want, and pay at the checkout counter. However, the product is sold on an industrial scale and the customers themselves may be private citizens or large companies.

What lighting requirements does the big box store have?

In industrial warehouses, storage is the name of the game. Pack or create as much space as possible for very specific items before shipping. For big box stores (such as walmart, sears or lowe's), there are different considerations.

Balancing the need to assemble as many products as possible while also making it easy and safe for customers to navigate. In these hypermarkets, the ceiling is very high. This means that lighting needs to be able to cover the entire area. What's more, it needs to fill the space between the shelves. Workers may have special safety devices to navigate certain industrial Spaces, but you can't ask the same civilian customers.

Not only that, but they also have the lighting needs of most stores, albeit on a larger scale. All exits need to be clearly visible, the layout of the store needs to be simple, and the payment area needs to be well lit.

How can LED lighting improve revenue?

High canopy LED lighting will solve your lighting needs. Because of the angled lens, it will fill both horizontal and vertical Spaces. They also save money. Compared with metal halides and compact fluorescent bulbs, LED lighting is 70% more efficient for your space and bank.

They last longer and don't fade like fluorescent or halogen bulbs. Moreover, the installation cost does not need to go through the (very high) roof. Retrofitting and plug-and-play replacement bulbs can make the job easier.

How does LED lighting improve security?

Safety is very important to workers. There is no doubt that they need to provide them with all security enforcement. For civilian customers, however, there are unknown additional elements. You never know for sure who will come to your door.

With high quality lighting and constant LED brightness, customers will not be able to use the excuse of where they cannot see. Not only that, but LED lighting is almost impossible to explode (especially when properly installed) or flicker, which is impossible with fluorescent bulbs or metal halides. LED may increase your income in terms of savings, but it may also help it by avoiding litigation.
