Garage Lighting Guide - Why LED Lights Are a Game-Changer!
When it comes to lighting a Garage, we must keep in mind that the lighting we place there must fulfill one main function: to make it easier for us to access our car and leave the garage in complete safety. These are normally closed spaces without windows, sometimes they are below the ground, so we must include sufficient and functional lighting in our garage.
LED Garage Lights are the most innovative lighting solutions to date and can save you money on your electricity bill, have a longer lifespan than other lights, and put out more lumens than other lighting solutions.
Advantages of LED Garage Lighting
Greater visibility and safety are crucial when it comes to garage lighting. At Hyperlite we prioritize customer needs and feedback, and we have found that LED lighting fixtures are the ideal lighting products for garages.
LED lights provide bright, constant illumination, reducing shadows spots and dark corners in your garage. This improved visibility makes your garage safer for activities like working on your car, or even just parking your vehicle. Hyperlite continually improves its products to ensure our commercial lighting solutions meet your satisfaction.
Energy efficiency and cost savings.

With reduced maintenance needs, you can spend more time enjoying your well-lit garage and less time on maintenance tasks.
Choosing the Right LED Lights for your Garage
Lighting a garage is not as easy as it looks. If we focus on interior lighting, products such as LED tubes or LED hexagon lights can be ideal to achieve a quality that combines low consumption power with high light output while guaranteeing easy installation and quality of the lights, which translates into optimal luminosity.
Brightness levels suitable for a garage environment. - 50 lumen per square foot of area us the minimum recommended by the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) recommendations. A Two-car garage needs a minimum of 20.000 lumens, but it really depends on the dimensions of your garage.
Color temperature consideration. – Color temperature affects the mood of occupants and the overall ambiance of a space. For example, lights with temperatures below 3000k offer a warm light, creating a pleasant atmosphere that is not suitable for a workspace. In contrast lights with a color temperature above 4000k are on the cooler side of the spectrum making occupants feel alert.
Recommended fixtures for garage spaces. – At Hyperlite you can find Hexagon lights which are very nice looking and bright lights for your garage and also you can make them dimmable. We also offer outdoor lights for the entrance of your garage; you can visit our website hi-hyperlite.com and check our outdoor flood lights.
