The Amount of LED High Bays Required for a Warehouse
by William M. Digital Marketing Executive
In recent years, the introduction of the LED lights has changed the way facility supervisors used to set the budget for floor illumination. Proper illumination is a necessity, and the size of the warehouses varies from business to business and the items that they store. The High Bay LED Lights are the best options available for commercial institutions.
The high bays are usually installed at a standard height of 20 feet or more and designed to illuminate an ample space. They are primarily designed for warehouses and large industrial bays.

Use the 100-watt high bay lights and space them out at 8-14 feet. Go for the 6X3 pattern (18 lights) for the basic lighting and the 7X3 pattern (21 lights) for medium brightness requirements. The 8X4 pattern (32 lights) is present for higher brightness requirements.
Use the 150-watt high bay lights and space them accordingly. For example, at 17 feet, the pattern should be a 6X3 (18 lights) pattern for basic lighting—a 7X3 pattern (21 lights) for higher brightness.
