Outside, yet under cover. Above ground or below ground. Though varied in construction, all parking garages experience the same challenges when it comes to lighting. Selecting the proper parking garage lighting can not only make your property safer and more inviting, but can also make it more efficient and cost effective. Explore how Cooper Lighting Solutions approaches these challenges with unique solutions.
Safety and Security Around Every Corner
Top Trends in Today's Market
All the nooks and crannies inside of a parking garage can sometimes invite unwanted behavior. Bright and even light levels throughout the drive lanes, walkways, top deck, and stairwells can help deter criminals and keep your site secure. Cooper Lighting Solutions designs products with optical performance in mind. These optical designs help distribute the light uniformly and with a wide distribution to cast light into even the deepest corners.
Parking garages are a unique instance in which both vehicles and pedestrians navigate in a very tight space. Pedestrian safety is always a top consideration when designing or retrofitting a parking garage. Low-glare, uniform lighting can provide clear visibility for both drivers and pedestrians. Our proprietary WaveStream technology bends the light to provide superior visual comfort and low glare lighting without compromising area coverage.
Flattening of revenues and a rise in alternate modes of transportation pose challenges for profitability. Reduce operating and maintenance costs by utilizing high efficiency and superior lifetime luminaires to improve the overall bottom line. Cooper Lighting Solutions provides market-leading lifetime & energy consumption products that qualify for additional energy rebates.
Complex Problems with Simple Parking Garage and Parking Lot Lighting Solutions
Learn how you can leverage controlled and connected lighting to solve even the most advanced challenges.
Some spaces require brighter lighting levels during the day to help driver’s eyes transition as they enter the parking garage. Integrating a controls solution with time/clock capability allows the fixtures to dim during certain hours to maximize energy savings and improve the driver experience.
Daylight for Perimeter
Above-ground parking garages often have a lot of daylight that can be utilized around the outside perimeter of the decks. Integrated photocontrols for dusk-to-dawn control can automatically sense and adjust light levels to maximize energy savings without compromising on safety.
Grouping / Zoning
Ever walk into a conference room and have the lights come on after you're 10ft in the room? Would you accept the same experience while driving your car? We can help eliminate this 'popcorn' effect! By grouping or zoning the lighting, one trigger could switch an entire deck or row of lighting.
WaveLinx Lite is a connected system that can solve all of these problems and more with a simple and seamless sensor integration into our superior luminaires.
Below are a few products we recommend for each of the applications within Parking Garages.
