Car Park Lighting – What You Should Consider
Many people tend to think that a simple car park lighting setup can be done away with, but this is a misconception as there are many aspects of car park lighting that you need to consider. This does not mean you should leave your car parked in the dark and not do anything at all. Parking your car in the car park means you should have lighting in the car park. In the absence of adequate lighting a lot of problems can arise such as:
The first thing you should think about is how much lighting your car needs. The best thing to do is to carry out a car parking simulation exercise and judge how much lighting will be required for your parking space. The most common mistake many people make is to simply leave their car parked in the darkness without any lighting at all. What we do need is adequate lighting to ensure people can easily walk around the parking lot, especially at night or when parking and exiting the car park.
You should also carry out research regarding the types of car park lighting available to you so that you can choose the best type of lighting to install. There are numerous types of lighting available ranging from post mounted lights, ground lighting and even solar lighting. All these options have their own advantages and disadvantages, so it is important you understand them well before you decide on one.
