Lighting advice please.

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Some help please.

I'll soon be renovating my small workshop. I'd like some advice on the best lighting option. Floor area is about, 5m x 4m. Roof height is pretty high but can hang lights off chain. Workshop is primarily for woodworking. A few years back I would have just installed some fluros. But now there's so many options.

What's your suggestions ?

Thanks.....     Mal.

As you get older you need more light to work effectively. OK my workshop is bigger than yours however I currently have about 700 watts of LED lights and am about to add another 10 X 18W units. I have them on different switches, there will be about 7 by the time I finish.

 

I have

4 x 100 watt

4 x 50 watt

4 x 2 x 12 watt

and am about to install 10 x 18 watt units about 4 ~ 5 metres up

 

my ceiling hight goes from about 3.8 to about 5.9

That is why we have a 45~55 split on workshop living area. 🙂

 

with lights in a workshop it is virtually impossible to have too much, as long as you can switch them bit by bit. It's extremely easy to have too little.
