What illuminance does my workshop lighting need?

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.
