How many lumens do I need for garage lights?
The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) Lighting Handbook recommends 50 lumens (a measure of light output) per square foot in residential garages and 300 lumens per square foot in workshop areas. Now we know how many lumens you will need but How many lights are required for your garage? We want to bring you the best service and experience that is why we run simulations or make a layout for your building or shop and we will help you telling you how many lights you will need, the spacing for each light, the wattage we recommend and if it is the case the color tempertature, but this last one is according your preference, a picture showing you how your building or shop will look with those lights and the amount of foot candles on the surfaces.. We run simulations and we would need the dimensión of your garage such as lenght, width and height. Height is really important because we have different products and according with the ceiling height we recommend different power. Hyperlite LED High Bay Light White Hero Series with power of 60 watts with 8100 Lumens, 100 watts with 13500 Lumens, 150 watts with 20250 Lumens, 200 watts with 27000 and 250 watts with 33750 Lumens each of these Lights has 135 Lumens per watt. .

Hyperlite LED High Bay Light Saturn Series with power of 250 watts with 35000 Lumens. Each series have different accessories like motion sensor, reflectors (globe), remote controller and surface mount. As we said about the ceiling height we recommend different power according the ceiling height of your shop or building. For 7 to 13 feet we recommend 100 to 110 watt, 14 to 17 feet we recommend 150 to 160 watt, 18 to 20 feet we recommend 200 to 220 watt and for 21 feet or more we recommend 250 to 320 watt. You are able to use the light, power and amount of lumens you want to but you will need to aware because if you use a higher power could affect or hurt people’s eyes.
