LED Industrial Lights: Tips for Safe and Efficient Use

LED industrial lights are important in industrial production. When you have lights that are able to service your business for 50,000 hours, you’re way ahead of the game. Couple that with outstanding performance and low energy consumption, you’re looking at an indispensable lighting fixture. All these benefits are the reason why LED lights are the best for your workstations. It reduces strain on your workers’ eyes and allows them to concentrate more on their work. Now, let’s take a look at a couple of tips your company should employ when using LED industrial lights in order to fully enjoy this product’s benefits safely.

Color Temperature

When you choose your light color, be sure to choose the correct one for your employees. This is because the color of your lighting will affect how your employees will react to it during work. For example, a cold, lighter, or whiter hue will stimulate an individual. A warmer hue will instill calmness in an individual.

Looking at industrial guidelines, it is recommended that light color of 4,000 K is best for an assembly worker’s bench. You’re looking at a warm, white light. We usually associate this hue with filament bulbs that are normally around 2,500 K to 2,700 K and ordinary daylight which is 5,800 K and 6,500 K. This type of color reduces the stress of employees by lessening the strain a cooler color would bring on. With less strain from the employees, the workforce as a whole will be more productive.

Multiple Shadows

When you have numerous shadows that overlap, it strains the eyes. If you were to use LED lights, but the usage of these lights would be in the form of individual spotlights, distinct shadows will be produced. These shadows will produce a great deal of strain on the employees’ eyes. The employee will eventually feel the fatigue this shadow produced at the end of the day. But if you were to use LED industrial lights which were to produce soft shadows, it will have the opposite effect.


Most companies are not sure about what pulse rate their lamps should be in order to have a pleasing working ambiance. Technically, a flicker-free lamp should be used. Even if you have low-frequency lights that do not flicker as much, employees will eventually feel the strain at the end of the day. High-frequency LED lights should be put in place instead. This takes away the strain employees experience from flickering lights and boosts the employees’ work quality.

Luminous Intensity

Aside from frequency, luminous intensity should also be taken into consideration. If a workbench has an ill-fitting bright light, it disrupts the adaptation of the employees. When we talk about adaptation, we’re talking about the ability of the human eye to adjust to brightness levels around it. So, if the human eye is exposed to different levels of brightness at a given time, it needs time to adjust. If the human eye cannot properly adjust, then the employees’ concentration will be disrupted. This in turn leads to decreased levels of employees efficiency. It is therefore important to have reduced glare in the work area. Tetrus’ LED industrial lights are not only efficient but also reduces glare in the work area. Our product only produces the highest quality of light which the typical workbench requires.
