PARKING AREA LIGHTING PREVENTS ACCIDENTS AND SAVES ENERGY
Many parking lots are open around the clock, also during darker seasons. A parking area can be outside or indoors, free-standing or connected to a shopping centre, for example. Regardless of the location, the most important function of a parking area is to ensure smooth parking, as well as a safe exit and arrival.
Parking area lighting is an important element both for safety and energy efficiency. Successful parking area lighting prevents accidents, makes parking smoother and saves lighting energy costs.
PARKING AREA LIGHTING: 3 IMPORTANT FACTORS
Safe area. Cars are often dented in parking lots. Carelessness is a big factor, but accidents are also caused by poor visibility. Good parking area lighting ensures that the area is safe not only for the people travelling in cars, but also for pedestrians.
Smooth parking. In addition to good general lighting, lighting can also be used to control traffic and the use of the space. For example, lighting control can be used to indicate available parking spaces or to improve safety by increasing light levels near pedestrian crossings.
Energy-efficient lighting. Many parking lots are open around the clock, making energy efficiency a key issue when choosing a lighting solution. LED technology is inherently energy-efficient, and its energy-efficient effects can be amplified further by using lighting control. For example, lighting control can use motion detection, scheduling and dimming profiles.
SAFE AND ENERGY-EFFICIENT LIGHTING FOR YOUR PARKING AREA
Safe and energy-efficient parking area lighting can be achieved by using high-quality luminaires and smart lighting control. Lighting control helps to prolong the life cycle of the luminaires and achieve up to 70-80% energy savings compared to traditional, manually controlled lighting.
