Self-storage owners aim to provide a safe and secure site for their employees, customers and guests, and thorough facility lighting should be part of that goal. Providing all that illumination, however, comes at a cost. Not only is there equipment, bulbs and installation to consider, operators must be aware of local ordinances and the dangers of light pollution, particularly in and near residential areas. To minimize expenses, many are now installing more efficient, economical lighting that lasts longer and requires less investment.
In a recent thread on Self-Storage Talk, the industry’s largest online community, members discuss how they light up their properties while keeping the overhead under control. From motion sensors to timers to staggered placement, there are a number of workable solutions. See what they are and share your own ideas.
