A Handy Guide for Electricians: Lighting Up a Big Warehouse with Jarvi - Jarvis Lighting

Lighting up a big warehouse and wondering how many Jarvis high bay lights will get the job done? You're in the right place! Jarvis LED high bay lights, such as the HBL-A Linear and A51-A UFO round series, are ideal for large spaces with high ceilings. They’re energy-efficient, durable, and deliver excellent brightness. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you out, and remember, the lighting experts at Jarvis are just a call away if you need personalized advice!

Step 1: Deciding on Brightness

Start by figuring out the desired brightness in your warehouse, measured in footcandles. Different areas might require different lighting levels. Aiming for about 15-20 footcandles for general warehouse space is a good starting point, but it’s always best to check industry guidelines or consult with a lighting expert, like the ones at Jarvis Lighting.

Step 2: Calculating Total Light Needed

To determine how much light you'll need for your warehouse, you'll multiply the desired brightness (in footcandles) by the warehouse area (in square feet):

Total Lumens Required=Brightness (footcandles)×Warehouse Area (ft2)

Total Lumens Required=Brightness (footcandles)×Warehouse Area (ft2)

For example, if your warehouse is 10,764 square feet and you want a brightness of 20 footcandles, you'd multiply 10,764 by 20. This means you'd need a total of 215,280 lumens to light up the warehouse at your desired brightness.

Step 3: Picking the Right Jarvis Light

Now, select the Jarvis high bay light that suits your needs. Here are some options:

Jarvis HBL-A Linear High Bay:

  • 80W model with 12,376 lumens
  • 110W model with 16,811 lumens
  • 165W model with 25,150 lumens
  • 220W model with 32,308 lumens
  • 300W model with 44,479 lumens

Jarvis A51-A UFO Round High Bay:

  • 100W model with 14,854 lumens
  • 150W model with 22,887 lumens
  • 200W model with 30,903 lumens
  • 240W model with 36,238 lumens

Step 4: Figuring Out the Number of Lights

Next, calculate how many Jarvis lights you need by dividing the total light needed by the lumen output of the chosen light:

Number of Lights=Total Light Needed (lumens)/Light Lumen Output (lumens)

For example, if you need 215,200 lumens and choose the 80W Jarvis HBL-A Linear High Bay with 12,376 lumens, you’d need about 18 lights (always round up).

Step 5: Placing the Lights Right

With the number of lights sorted, it’s time to plan their placement. Consider the height, angle of the light, and the warehouse layout. The HBL-A Linear series is excellent for aisle lighting, while the A51-A UFO Round series is ideal for open areas. And don’t hesitate to reach out to the Jarvis Lighting experts for advice on optimal placement!
