Parking space lighting
Properly illuminating parking spaces is of paramount importance. It's not only vehicles driving around but also pedestrians walking to and from their cars. To ensure clear visibility and safeguard the safety of both pedestrians and drivers, the right lighting is essential. Additionally, parking lot lighting in the dark enhances social safety and provides a sense of comfort, increasing the likelihood of users returning to your parking space. Prolumia offers a wide range of public lighting fixtures, including LED lighting for parking lots. With a multitude of options available in our product range, tailored to your preferences, we always have the right fixture to illuminate your parking space.
Benefits of parking space lighting
Prolumia LED lighting is highly efficient and ideal for parking space lighting. Using various sensors, a reliable light management system, and different lenses, LED lighting is available for every parking space.

- Minimum IK08 rating – Resistant to impacts and vandalism
- High, uniform light distribution for optimal visibility
- Various sensor options (motion, day-night, dusk switch)
- (Wireless) master-slave function
Standards for parking space LED lighting
Safety and clarity are of great importance in parking spaces. To ensure these aspects are maintained, various standards have been established by the European Union.
The standard for parking space lighting is described in NEN 2443, and it considers the functional and performance requirements for public parking facilities
- Minimum CRI > 80
- Waterproof fixtures (minimum IP65 rating)
- Vandal-resistant fixtures (minimum IK08 rating)
- 4000K is the most commonly used light color
Frisomat car park lighting
Prolumia supplies durable and high-quality plug-and-play luminaires, but also provides expert advice. This also happened at Frisomat in Belgium, where the product site was in need of new outdoor lighting for the car park. The completely yellowed luminaires were replaced by the Pro-Strada Mini, allowing not only the width of the car park to be illuminated, but also part of the roadway. In addition, the bollard optics were taken in hand. These were replaced by the Pro-Tabella, because of its modern design and because one of the many lenses in this package ensures the desired, most ideal light distribution.
Light management system for parking spaces
Parking space lighting should come on when at dusk. To save costs, you can opt for a light management system for your parking space. This way, the lighting in your parking space is controlled as efficiently as possible.
Consider intercommunicating master-slave functions on your fixtures, a motion or day-night sensor, or various dimming options when necessary. Depending on the type of fixture, we can integrate different light management systems for your parking space.
Lighting calculation for a parking space
To meet the required standards for your parking space lighting, a professional lighting plan is essential. This plan tells you what type of fixtures and how many of them are needed for your area. This is a challenging task, especially for a large-scale project such as parking space lighting. Prolumia can assist with this. We use the Relux simulation program for our lighting calculations.
Within ten business days, you will receive a non-binding proposal, including the Relux lighting calculation linked to a quotation. This proposal will explain the layout of the parking space lighting and the reasons behind the choices made. Additionally, it will elaborate on the achieved light level, by the legally established NEN standards, which define how many lux should be delivered on a specific surface.
