To understand the lighting needs of an industrial shed, it is necessary to perform a lighting calculation.The application contexts for industrial lighting are diverse and each with different needs: entrance areas, reception, offices, work and production areas, storage spaces, outdoor and transit areas.
A lighting solution must be designed to meet the quantitative and qualitative lighting requirements for the visual enjoyment of both an indoor and outdoor space (so-called application space).
The lighting system must provide efficient and optimal visibility at every point of the industrial shed, to ensure the safety of operations.
The lighting calculation for an industrial shed must be carried out correctly, in order to propose a lighting design that adequately meets both the height constraints of the interior ceilings and the safety and visibility lighting requirements for the large outdoor space.
The lighting calculation for an industrial shed is performed through the examination of a number of parameters useful for classifying the entire application space.
The main parameters to be considered are: the size of the room and its illuminance value, the type of luminaire to be installed, the utilization and maintenance factor, the value of wall and ceiling reflection coefficients and the level of maintenance.
Another important indicator is the performance parameters of the luminaires to be installed, including durability.
