FAQ Petrol Station Lighting

What are the legal requirements for gas station lighting?

The illuminance, measured in "lux", is prescribed by law for most commercial areas of application. Different lux values apply for different areas of activity. The specified values refer to the amount of light that reaches the floor. They therefore influence how much light must be installed on the ceiling. 

  • Parking and parking spaces: 10 lux, Ra 25 
  • Entrance / exit: 50 Lux, Ra 40 
  • Air pressure, water test points: 150 Lux, Ra 20 
  • Tank installations, measuring devices: 100 Lux, Ra 60

What role does the color rendering index play in service station lighting?

Light should reproduce the colors of the environment as naturally as possible. Information on how well a luminaire does this is provided by the luminaire's color rendering index (CRI). We recommend a color rendering index of ≥80 for your gas station store.  

What else is important to consider when it comes to service station lighting?

To make it easier to read the tank amounts in the dark, but also to reduce the risk of accidents on your service station premises, you should choose luminaires with low glare. On the one hand, this is achieved by the mounting height; in addition, special glare-free optics can be used. The degree of glare is expressed in the UGR value.

Do I need explosion-proof luminaires for my service station?

Due to the occurrence of critical substances, service stations belong to the fire and explosion hazardous operating sites. Therefore, the hazardous areas must be equipped with EX luminaires according to the zone. 

Is LED lighting worthwhile in my service station?

LED lights have many advantages. Thanks to the highest energy efficiency, you can save up to 90% of your electricity costs. LED technology is also very durable. With a conversion, you save yourself costly maintenance and replacement measures in the long term. 

Is it worthwhile to have a lighting control system in my gas station?

Automatic lighting control adapted to daylight helps save even more energy costs. In addition, the light can be automatically dimmed down to a minimum after closing time. Accidentally "leaving the lights on" by your employees is simply bypassed.
