Types of Industrial Lighting For The Workplace

There are numerous types of lighting options for industrial light fixtures used in the workplace. Each type offers different benefits and proper lighting is essential to employee performance. Here is a look at the different types of lighting and what the benefits of each are.

Full Spectrum Industrial Lighting

Full spectrum lighting provides lighting that is closest to the natural light of the sun. It is the type of lighting that is usually the most beneficial to those that work in office environments. Swing arm lamps are often used as the fixture for full spectrum lighting as they allow the individual using them to be able to direct the light right to the task at hand.

Halogen Lighting

Halogen lighting is known for producing white light that is very bright. Halogen lighting is perfect for some people and terrible for others. It can either produce a glare or provide a great contrast, depending on the person who is using it. The one thing to be careful about when using halogen lighting is how much heat the lights generate.

Fluorescent lighting

Fluorescent lighting is the best type of lighting to use when you are trying to illuminate a large area. The light is a blue white color and is able to disperse without leaving shadowy areas. It also is a great choice for energy efficiency and is very often used in industrial light fixtures in public places like grocery stores.

Incandescent lighting

Incandescent lighting is more yellow in tone and provides a direct light making it very useful in areas where assembling items is taking place. These types of lights are also commonly found in regular table and desk lamps.

High Intensity Discharge Lighting (HID)

HID lighting is similar to halogen lighting. Yet, industrial light fixtures that use HID lighting do not get as hot and tend to use less energy.
