Expert tip

Universal lighting is not suitable for your workshop. We recommend a flexible lighting concept consisting of individual solutions for each workplace and each activity. Our lighting experts will calculate for you individually what such a solution would look like for you.

FAQ

What illuminance does my workshop lighting need?

Depending on the field of activity, you need different illuminance levels in your workshop. The finer the visual task, the higher the illuminance should be. 500 lux is best suited as basic lighting, with individual workplaces illuminated in accordance with Din EN 12464.

  • Basic lighting: 300-500 lux 
  • Work on machines: 500 lux  
  • Assembly work: depending on fineness, up to 750 lux 
  • Quality controls: up to 1500 lux

Info: The light required is highly dependent on the workplace and activity. Your lighting expert WATT24 will take over planning of suitable products including placement recommendations for a standard-compliant and above all safe lighting solution.

Which light color is suitable for workshop lighting?

The most natural light possible is important in workshops. A cool white light color of 4,000 Kelvin and more is the ideal color temperature for work in a workshop. The light should also be glare-free and have high color rendering. This increases the safety and concentration of your employees. 

What IP protection do the lights in my workshop need?

There is an increased amount of dust in most workshops. It is essential that the light sources are protected from this. To ensure that they can be cleaned quickly and easily, it is also worthwhile to have a sufficiently high level of protection against splashing water. An IP protection of at least IP54 is suitable for the lighting of your workshop. LED damp-proof luminaires are a robust and durable option for your workshop lighting.

Do workshop luminaires need further protection?

Lighting in the workshop is often exposed to strong external influences. In addition to a sufficiently high IP protection, your luminaires should also be provided with a suitable IK protection class. 

Is LED lighting worthwhile in my workshop?

LED lights offer several advantages over conventional lights. Due to the low energy consumption, you save a lot of electricity costs with LED technology. In addition, LED lights are very durable, which means that costly replacement and maintenance work is noticeably reduced. The light from LED lights is flicker-free, irritating flickering is a thing of the past. 

Is light control worthwhile in my workshop?

Smart lighting ensures maximum comfort and maximum energy savings in your workshop. With sensor technology, the lighting only switches on when and where it is needed. Smart control via smartphone or remote control prevents you from accidentally leaving it on.
