Why Quality Lighting Matters in Commercial Spaces

Lighting plays a crucial role in all forms of commercial settings and can greatly impact everything from the ambience of your storefront to the productivity of employees in the office.

Having access to quality commercial lighting solutions allows you to create the best environment for your business and ensure you are meeting your goals in everything you do.

The right lighting solutions are your key to transforming a mundane workspace into an inviting and stimulating environment where work is done and goals are achieved. Lighting offers a range of benefits, including:

Energy Efficiency and Cost Savings

One of the most significant benefits of modern commercial lighting solutions is their energy efficiency.

By investing in state-of-the-art lighting products, businesses can significantly reduce their energy consumption and experience substantial savings in their everyday operations.

LED lighting, for instance, consumes up to 75% less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs and lasts significantly longer, making it a cost-effective choice for any commercial establishment. This is provided without compromising on illumination, allowing you to continue to host a bright and warm workspace without the traditional costs of running electricity.

Most commercial lighting solutions these days are made to meet these sustainable requirements and therefore are great options for businesses wanting to save money and reduce their impact on the environment around them.

Enhances Aesthetic Appeal

A well-designed lighting system can dramatically improve the aesthetic appeal of a commercial space. Whether it’s a retail store aiming to highlight merchandise or an office seeking to create a professional yet welcoming atmosphere, the right lighting can make all the difference.

Considering the kind of lighting used in your commercial premises can help set the tone you desire, and improve the way your business appears. There are many commercial lighting options available so you can set the perfect tone for your business, enhance productivity or create a welcoming environment for customers.

No matter what your goals are, the right lighting can enhance the visual appeal of your commercial premises and create a space to be proud of.

Compliance and Safety

There are various regulatory standards that need to be considered in the commercial sector, including those for security and safety. As well as being a great accessory for your business premises and a tool for creating ambience, lighting is also required for security reasons.

Commercial lighting solutions offer more than just a pretty scene, as they are designed to meet relevant health and safety requirements for your industry. Installing specialised commercial lighting at your site ensures compliance with national standards, helping you create a safe work environment for everyone involved.

With the right lighting, you can demonstrate an attention to detail that highlights your commitment to safety compliance and shows your dedication to creating a safe environment for staff and customers alike.

Commercial Lighting Solutions

At SCV Electrical, we pride ourselves on offering a comprehensive range of lighting solutions tailored to the unique needs of commercial spaces. With such a wide range, we can help our commercial clients reach their goals and create a suitable working environment for their business.

With such a wide range of commercial lighting solutions, it is easier for you to create the right kind of space for your work and ensure you meet the national guidelines for safety and security.

Our tailored commercial lighting solutions include:

LED Panel Lights

LED panel lights provide a uniform, glare-free illumination to the workspace. Not only does this create a bright working environment that allows no detail to be missed, but the glare-free properties ensure visual comfort.

By relying on LED lights, this kind of commercial lighting is also ideal for energy efficiency and is cost-effective to run for long periods of time at your business. This is why these kinds of lights are commonly used in offices and retail spaces.

Fluorescent Lighting

Fluorescent lighting is another popular option for commercial premises like offices. Although this kind of commercial lighting is not as energy efficient as LED panel lights, it continues to be a popular option across the UK. This popularity is mainly due to how affordable fluorescent lighting is, both in terms of installation and electrical bills.

This form of commercial lighting can provide substantial brightness to business premises like offices and workspaces, without causing a surge in electrical bills. The substantial output comes from the fact that fluorescent lighting is commonly installed in panels to offer a wide spread of illumination across the premises.

High Bay Lights

High bay lights offer powerful, efficient illumination to large spaces and are installed high up on the ceiling for maximum coverage. These kinds of commercial lights are best for industrial and warehouse settings because of their efficiency and reach.

Due to their high installation and powerful beams, high bay lights ensure optimal visibility across the premises – even in large open spaces.

Incandescent Lighting

Although incandescent lighting is being phased out widely across the UK, it is still being used in some commercial settings for ambience purposes. This form of lighting is not as popular as it once was because it is not as energy efficient as other options, but the charm of the illumination that comes from incandescent bulbs makes it ideal for specialised applications in certain businesses.

This kind of lighting is commonly used in restaurants and bars to create a low, warm ambience in the evenings that simply cannot be replicated with other bulbs.

Halogen Lighting

Halogen lights are similar to incandescent bulbs in terms of their design and warm tone but are more popular across the commercial sector because they can offer slightly greater efficiency. Halogen lights also have a longer lifespan than incandescent bulbs, so they are a better choice for areas such as display cases and spotlights.

They provide a bright, white light which is perfect for showcasing retail merchandise or art pieces, which is why they are commonly used in stores, galleries and similar commercial settings. Halogen lighting can also be used as outdoor floodlights for additional security at your business premises.

High-Intensity Discharge Lights

HID lights offer a high-lumen output making them a great solution for all kinds of commercial premises.

Commonly found in warehouses, gymnasiums, and even stadiums, this kind of commercial lighting is brighter than other systems and therefore offers greater visibility in those crucial areas.

Emergency Lighting

Safety is crucial in all forms of commercial settings and lighting is a great tool to ensure you are working with the national regulations for this. Emergency lighting is an essential installation for every business and is designed to provide illumination during power outages.

When all the other lights have gone out, emergency lighting will switch on to ensure the safety of all customers and staff on your premises. These kinds of lights highlight emergency exits and ensure that people have a safe path out of the building in emergencies.

Outdoor and Car Park Lighting

Safety does not just apply indoors, as the outside of your commercial premises also needs to be considered. This is where outdoor commercial lighting comes in, with specific designs for car parks and similar areas available based on your requirements.

Outdoor lighting is designed to be robust so it can offer high levels of illumination outside your premises to ensure the safe exit and entrance of all occupants. To ensure the ongoing functionality of outdoor lighting, commercial solutions are designed to be weather-resistant and can be installed in areas such as car parks, pathways and building exteriors.

Smart Lighting Systems

Commercial premises can benefit from the power of technology with smart lighting solutions that offer advanced features and greater control than traditional illumination.

There is a great range of smart lighting systems currently available with benefits such as automated controls, motion sensing and remote access. This allows you to have greater control of your business premises as well as complete customisation of your lighting setup to ensure it meets your specific needs.
