What type of lighting is best for a garage?
Of course, your garage or workshop shouldn’t look like something out of an old movie. You need the best lighting so you can see yourself working safely on this environment. Most forges and workshops throughout history were either open-air or had the ability to open large doors or shutters for plenty of light.
Of course, there are other garage lighting ideas for when you plan to use your garage for multiple functions, but when it comes to working on cars, repairing small appliances, woodworking .The options are only the best LEDs available.
First tip: If your garage work requires that you see colors truly (wood paints and stains, auto paint, etc.), always check the color rendering index (CRI) rating of a bulb before purchase. A rating of 85 or above is best for rendering true color. (CRI numbers are not usually displayed on packaging and may require additional research to determine.)
Second tip: the quality of the product. The housings of a LED is very important. If they are made of lightweight but durable composite aluminum for a long-lasting lighting solution and are backed by a 5-year warranty, then these are the best options for your space.
For example, Hyperlite recommends you our new Vapor Tight Light - Capsule series. This product is 20% brighter than other brands of LED lamps, which mean it will save more energy, and provides you a brighter environment for the same power. 130LM per watt.
It`s easy installation only takes 3 steps, approximately 3 to 5 minutes with surface mounts.
Third tip: This Vapor Tight Light - Capsule series comes with a 2-feet wire, which makes it easily daisy chained in 3 steps according to your needs (the maximum number of lights for 60 watts is 10pcs, for 40w is 15pcs). In fact, they’re incredibly bright and the 2-feet power cords mean you can chain them together over long distances.
And, Vapor Tight Light - Capsule series is dustproof and waterproof which makes it widely used in the garage, workshop, barn, kitchen, cold storage(-22°F to 115°F), outdoor corridors, warehouses, and farms.
