Industrial building lighting

Having proper lighting in Industrial buildings is essential. These spaces often consist of long aisles with high shelves. To illuminate every area optimally, in addition to a thorough lighting plan, the right LED lighting is necessary. This not only enables productive work but also creates a safe working environment. Prolumia offers an extensive range of LED lighting solutions for Industrial buildings.

Standards for industrial building lighting

The European Union has established standards for lux values in various indoor lighting environments and applications. Industrial building lighting must comply with the NEN 12464-1 standard. According to this standard, LED lighting for industrial buildings, workshops, or industries should emit a minimum of 100 lux (in storage areas) and a maximum of 500 lux (in laboratories).

The lighting requirements for light intensity are as follows:

  • NEN 12464-1
  • CRI (Color Rendering Index) > 80
  • UGR (Unified Glare Rating) < 25
  • Average color temperature of 4000K


VETUS' distribution center in Schiedam was in need of a lighting upgrade. Because the center consists mostly of long aisles with high racking, it is always a challenge to create an almost equal level of light at the top and bottom of the racking. Prolumia's Pro-Stock is perfect for this.

Light management system for industrial buildings

To achieve even more energy savings, you can opt for a light management system for your industrial building. A light management system ensures that your lighting fixtures are controlled as efficiently as possible. This allows you to remotely manage your lighting using sensors, timers, or other functions.

This system can also be applied to LED industrial building lighting, provided the right fixtures are chosen. Depending on the type of fixture, Prolumia can integrate various light management systems for your industrial building.
