Illuminance Guide

Advisor Illuminance for Commercial and Industrial


Halls have different tasks in commercial use and industrial operations. From assembly and painting to use for recreation and sports and as storage, you will find all types of use.

For the lighting design in a hall with hall floodlightsyou should first define the work or use that is to take place here. The workplace directive is a good source of information on recommended illuminance levels for this:


Appendix 1 to the Workplace Regulations: lighting requirements for workrooms, workplaces and activities


You will also find a brief summary of the recommended illuminance levels for the various work areas or activities in your hall in our illuminance guide below.

Keep in mind that there are halls where different areas may be adjacent to each other. In this case, it is recommended to divide the hall lighting in the hall in order to use the lighting as efficiently as possible. A sketch will help to delineate this.

Some halls are redesigned over time or are laid out directly so that the different work areas can vary. This is also an important factor when planning hall lighting.


It is also important to note whether there are fixed mounting points for the LED high bay lighting or whether they can be freely positioned here. Fixed mounting points of the hall lighting usually result from an existing lighting, which is to be modernized or from the hall construction, which does not allow other mounting points.


If these basic points for industrial lighting are fixed, you should still think about special features of the hall. Special features include crane runways that limit the size of the hall spotlights, skylights that limit the location of mounting points, or existing machinery, wiring, and fuses that may affect lighting.

We have worked out solution models for you under lighting solutions for the most common applications of our LED luminaires.
