As downtown commercial buildings make way for new residential structures, designers look for ways to keep that “industrial” feel. This is usually accomplished by using exposed brick, visible overhead venting systems, and even lighting fixtures made out of piping or other industrial materials.
It may look snazzy in a downtown loft, tiny pendant lights that hang down in the living room. But those same lights won’t do much in a 200,000 square foot warehouse. That type of structure will need REAL industrial-style ceiling lights to make sure workers can do their job efficiently and safely.
Not just on the work floor, but everywhere. Poorly lit stairwells or catwalks can lead to slips, trips, and falls. Dependable lighting will keep accidents down and productivity up. Depending on your facility, you may also need warning lights to alert workers to potentially hazardous situations.
Not only on the interior of the building but the exterior as well. Storee Construction installs parking lot lights, lights on the outside of the building for safety and security purposes, and industrial traffic warning lights. Lights in stockyards will keep inventory well-lit and easy to find in the early evening hours.
We’ve been working throughout the Midwest for decades, so we know the kind of punishment these exterior lights have to endure. Not only do we provide lights to keep your crews safe and on task, but we also create housing that keeps those lights safe – inside and out.
It could be following the original equipment manufacturer’s specifications for installation or creating cages to handle the occasional love tap from a forklift or other material handler. Either way, Storee Construction will design a lighting system that will stand up to the rigors of your facility.
