3 Reasons Why LEDs Are The Best Choice For Garage Lighting
LEDs Can Improve The Driver Experience In Your Parking Garage
Parking garages are a common sight in the US. With more than 250 million cars on the road, it’s nearly impossible to have a brick-and-mortar business without offering some form parking option. As a business owner, the last thing you want is an unsafe parking lot for your customers.
Between tight turns, poor signage, bad attitudes and dim lighting, car accidents are bound to happen in parking garages. Here are 3 ways LEDs can make your parking garages safer.
Brighter Lights Can Help To Reduce Car Accidents
LEDs offer brighter lighting and versatile lighting configurations. Brighter lights can help to reduce head on collisions and reduce the incidents of drivers colliding with the parking structure itself. Brighter lighting from LEDs can also help to reduce the chances of pedestrians being hit by cars.
With LEDs you have the option of interchangeable lenses that help to manipulate lighting angles. This adds visibility to tight corners.
LEDs Can Help To Reduce Crime
It’s no secret that criminals are attracted to parking garages. This is especially true for multi-level and subterranean parking garages that offer easy areas for criminals to hide. Between 2004-2008, 11% of all burglaries and theft took place in parking garages and lots.
Statistics show that well-lit places are a major deterrent for lurking criminals. Better garage lighting can also help to increase a customer’s awareness of their surroundings. Bright lighting also creates a sense of safety.
LEDs Are Cost Effective and Customizable
It’s true that LEDs provide brighter lighting than other options. LEDs also have a longer lifespan too. For example, our Dorado 2 has a lifetime of 100,000 hours, making it an ideal replacement for any 1000W metal halide fixture.
