If you purchase second-rate industrial office lighting fixtures, you could inadvertently create a negative workspace. To get the most out of your equipment, you will need to consult with experts who can a photometric plan that tell you what commercial lighting products will work best for your particular application. This plan will also show exactly how many fixtures you will need and where your electrician will have to install them.
In previous decades, people often got very tired in the workplace because of poor lighting conditions. Eye strain would cause fatigue because of the poor quality of older generation indoor fluorescent lights. These industrial lights had poor power due to older magnetic ballasts.
Also, the bulbs in those lamps contained a mixture of gases and metals that would shine a slightly yellowish glow on the room that would add to the stress of labor and task as employees work in an increasingly uncomfortable work environment.
If your industrial fluorescent lights are more than ten years in age, you may need to install a new industrial office lighting system for the betterment of your employees. Features that you need to look for in these fixtures are easy maintenance access to bulbs and ballasts.
Also, it is wise to spend a little extra money on the more energy efficient lamps. They will help you save money on operating costs by consuming less electricity, and their longer lamp life will mean fewer bulb replacements and correspondingly lower maintenance costs.
Some ceiling-mounted industrial office lighting fixtures still use the traditional tube shaped fluorescent lights. Wall mounted lights render color much better than their predecessors ever did. You no longer have to deal with that yellowish look to skin and clothing. With yellow light no longer present, eyestrain is gone as well. The brighter light these fixtures emit also helps them to work more productively.
If you choose something other than fluorescent lighting fixtures for your industrial commercial office lighting, but you still want the benefits offered by energy efficient of fluorescent bulbs, you can use traditional lights that require screw-in incandescent bulbs retrofitted with fluorescent replacements.
By replacing these incandescents with compact fluorescent light bulbs, you can lower your energy costs, and, depending upon the number of lights you replace, lower room temperatures in your office. This is due to incandescent lighting’s tendency to wastes so much energy in the form of excess heat. This can affect your air conditioner thermostat and cause your building cooling costs to rise.
