Warehouse Lighting is an essential component of every business, but how much do you really pay attention to it?
- Are your lighting levels adequate and do they meet ASHRAE 90.1 and IES requirements and guidelines?
- Are your lights always on?
- Do you overspend due to outdated, high energy fixtures?
- Does your lighting promote the well-being of your employees or does it create a depressing environment?
These are just some of the issues we’ll examine as Jim Chamberlain from Alpine Supply Chain Solutions and Jon Cooper from Helios Energy dive into the topic of warehouse lighting and how to ensure you’re not caught in the dark.
