ILP Application Guide

How much light do you need?  Based on your facility, there are recommended light levels.  The levels are based on a unit of measure called foot candles (fc) or lumens (lm).  This rating quantifies how much light is in an area.  This helpful chart below is a good guide to estimate how much light you need.  Once you have identified you facility, we can help you design the layout that is right for you.
