How Many LED Panels do I need?
We regularly get asked “how many LED Panels do I need to light a room xxxx big?”
The answer depends on the function of the room and the level of lighting you need. For example, a good office lighting level is around 400-450 lux, but for workshops you should aim for a light level of around 600 lux.
We’ve worked through a couple of examples below, based on recent custom lighting projects we’ve completed. These are basic designs for a 10m x 10m room.
The above has 16 x 36w LED Panels, the ceiling is 3m high and the work plane is 0.75m (standard desk height).
This will provide you with a nice even lux level between 250-440 lux across the room, making it a perfect office lighting level.
This design has 24 x 36w LED Panels. Again, the ceiling is 3m high and the work plane is 0.75m (standard desk height).
This will provide you with a nice even lux level around 600 lux across the room, ideal for workshops or similar working environments.
*The above data should only be used as a guide, we recommend getting a full design completed.
