Commercial lighting encompasses the street lamps used by local West Palm government to brighten roads as well as the lights used by West Palm businesses to illuminate worksites, parking lots and private roads. Commercial lighting in West Palm comes in a wide array of styles, and local electric contractors, such as Carpenter Electric Inc., can custom order the lighting to the client’s specific needs.

Safety and Security Considerations

The primary reasons why parking lot lighting in West Palm is a necessity are security and safety concerns. Statistically, unlit areas are much more prone to theft and other crimes, and appropriate lighting makes it easier for private security and local law enforcement to monitor the area. There is also the matter of safety for the business’ employees and vendors. Most companies inevitably require work at night, at least on occasion, and appropriate lighting ensures that those workers feel secure and safe. By law, a company is obligated to foster a safe environment whenever there are people there in an official capacity, and failure to do so can make the company liable for damages.

Usability Considerations

The other reason why appropriate lighting is necessary is to ensure maximum usability of the commercial space. This is not only a practical decision, but it maximizes the value of the property, and it may be a requirement if the property is mortgaged or insured. A chief concern with commercial lighting is the long-term cost of ownership, but maintenance costs are minimal and only apply as needed, and the business can use features like motion detection, light sensors and energy-efficient lighting to limit long-term costs. A company should not make the mistake of basing this decision solely on business hours since there will be unexpected usage and perhaps even emergencies when it is necessary.

Commercial Lighting Options

Parking lot lighting in West Palm is available in a wide array of configurations. The most common formats include high-pressure sodium, metal halide and mercury vapor, and the most common styles include security lighting, floodlights and shoeboxes. The most common form of post is aluminum, but other options include steel, fiberglass, concrete and wood. There are also options available to suspend the lighting or to attach it to a preexisting structure. Available features include motion sensors, light sensors, remote control and network capability. All commercial lighting is available in standard configurations that the contractor can install on short notice. Companies also have the option custom ordering the lighting to their precise specifications.
