Simple Indoor Lighting Layouts
These estimators provide a rough lighting layout for industrial (high ceiling area) or office (low ceiling area) open spaces assuming average or typical surface reflectances on walls and ceilings in your shop, gym, parking garage, warehouse, office, or commercial space. They are adequate for a “first pass” estimate. More accurate layouts can be done with the indoor design tool link available on the web page for the chosen fixture, or by using a commercial lighting layout program.
All numbers refer to initial lumens and footcandles only.
