Sales floor lighting

Hypermarket lighting can be as different as the stores themselves. Despite the different product groups – products, furniture, household goods, or construction products – the lighting concept for a hypermarket must have a uniform style and concept.

The main requirements for lighting hypermarkets are the quality of lighting, light intensity, and correct color rendering.

Also, when choosing the light for large areas, it is important to take into account the power and reliability of the fixtures. It is also necessary to take into account the peculiarities of the premises – the height of the ceilings, the presence of windows or other sources of daylight, columns, and other structures.

    Lighting for shopping centers

    Compared to offices and apartments, shopping center lighting is very different. It is divided into two types – functional and decorative. In a store, the best option would be to use a functional light. With its help, a harmonious and comfortable atmosphere for customers is created, as well as an opportunity to focus on the choice of products and divide the retail space into zones.

    Decorative lighting

    It is used as the main design element, which allows you to emphasize the style of the interior.

    Distinctive features of decorative lighting in comparison with functional differs in the following characteristics: 

    • lighting flux characteristics;
    • intensity degree;
    • temperature color;

    Peculiarities of lighting for shopping centers

    The showcase of each store attracts the attention of the target audience, and the sales area meets the expectations of customers. The target audience is also interested in the store space being fully viewed through the showcase. For this reason, store owners plan artificial lighting in sales areas in advance and carefully.

    Before dealing with lighting, the space must be zoned. You also need to think in advance about where the trade equipment will be installed.

    LED lighting of the sales area provides for the installation of the following types of lamps: 

    • mortise – used as the main light (if used in conjunction with reflectors, it is possible to focus on the product);
    • mortise gimbal – used as an alternative to a recessed lighting fixture;
    • overhead – used in rooms where it is not possible to install recessed lamps;
    • track – used to accent shelves, mannequins, and showcases;
    • suspended – more often in total are used for lighting in warehouses.

    The lighting must be of different levels. For example, there is no need to install bright diodes in the aisles between the shelves.

    If you want to design efficient and comfortable LED lighting for supermarkets, then contacting the company’s specialists would be an ideal option.
