Private parking garage lighting
Providing adequate lighting in a private parking garage is of paramount importance. Private parking garages, which are parking facilities with up to eighty parking spaces reserved exclusively for individuals with assigned parking spaces, are often located beneath apartment complexes or similar structures. To ensure residents or employees can park their vehicles with confidence and have good visibility, proper private parking garage LED lighting is indispensable. Prolumia offers an extensive range of LED lighting solutions for private parking garages.
