Warehouses + Logistics
Lighting warehouses and logistic facilities can be a challenging task due to the highly diverse tasks that take place. The lighting needs to focus on the workers - they should be able to safely navigate the space, whether it is an open hall, loading bay or high-level racking that can only be accessed with special equipment. At the same time, companies need to keep costs in hand.
Our intelligent turnkey solutions enable you to do just that as they:
- Ensure the right light in the right place
- Create an optimised work environment
- Deliver savings of up to 80%
- Provide a quick return on investment
Ensure the right light in the right place
All employees from delivery drivers to warehouse members need quality lighting to work safely and accurately operate machinery. The lighting must not cause glare, flicker or stroboscopic effects that could cause employees to misjudge situations and provoke accidents.
Labels on packages and delivery notes should be visible and legible at a glance. Our luminaires ensure the high vertical illuminance staff need to rapidly identify and read, even in confined, narrow spaces.
While traditional discharge lamps can have a colour rendering index (CRI) of less than 50 which makes it difficult for workers to discern colours and writing, our LED luminaires boast a CRI of 80 or more, providing a much more natural colour, similar to natural daylight, for a better perception.
Schréder’s lighting solutions respect good practices and comply with international regulations including EN 12464-1 to provide the required lighting levels to ensure the health and safety of all employees in industrial environments.
Create an optimised work environment
Research has shown that light plays a major role in employee well-being, satisfaction and retention in any workplace. Poor lighting, especially yellow or orange light from traditional discharge lamps can cause eyestrain, blurred vision and headaches. This can result in a significant cost to the business in the form of time of injuries, absenteeism and reduced productivity.
Schréder’s low glare LED lighting can make employees more alert and improve concentration levels, which leads to happier, safer employees and fewer errors.
Deliver savings of up to 80%
Schréder luminaires offer a low wattage per m² per 100 lux to provide the right light output, no more no less, with a reduced number of fixtures for the different tasks taking place. Built with corrosion-resistant materials, they are dust, humidity and water tight to deliver this high performance over time.
In areas that are not frequently used – such as storage zones – our control system combined with sensors can ensure that the lights are only activated when movement is detected. This means energy and money aren’t wasted illuminating areas when no light is needed.
Energy and operating costs can be reduced by up to 80%.
Provide a quick return on investment
Schréder customers enjoy an average payback period of less than 3 years with fixtures that last more than 10 years. The significant reduction in energy and maintenance costs results in savings that enhance profitability. The addition of our control system with sensors, which can seamlessly integrate with existing building management systems, further enhance the total cost of ownership for our lighting solutions.
