Turn-Key LED Lighting Solutions for Parking Facilities

Make A Great First Impression

Optimizing parking facility lighting is our specialty. Parking areas are typically the first impression made on customers. Proper LED lighting can light the path of safety for an employee walking to their car at night, illuminate outdoor areas to help deter crime, and make an empty garage not so intimidating.
Procuring a turn-key commercial parking area is often complex and time consuming. Our model offers support at every step of the way. Your personal lighting specialist will listen to your goals and objectives, assess your facility, and determine the best solution for your project.
Garage lighting is on 24 hours a day, 365 days a year which can equal big savings. Enter in the number of lamps that you wish to convert to LED at your commercial parking garage to discover the savings at your facility.

Types of Parking Facilities

Generally, parking areas can be put into two categories, above ground or parking lots, and below ground or parking garages. While there are similarities, each category has unique planning aspects that shouldn’t be overlooked.

Parking Facilities – Pillars to Success

At Bay Lighting, our top priority is… LIGHTING. Applying the scientific principles of lighting, we strive for optimal quantity and quality of light with each project; therefore, no matter the application, optimal lighting will always be the first pillar. Once proper lighting is achieved, then secondary goals can be attained. Here is an example of our 3 pillars when it comes to parking facilities.

Pillar 1: Optimal Lighting

  • A bright parking area is important to the safety and security of your guests.
  • Every turn-key parking solution should start with a plan. With photometrics, the risk of under-lighting or over-lighting is eliminated.
  • This pillar needs to be met for the overall success of the project.

Pillar 2: Energy Efficiency

  • Lighting can offer great returns from little investment, as compared to other industries.
  • Dimming, sensors, and controls can offer great savings.
  • Don't box yourself in with a cheap fixture that can't grow with technology.

Pillar 3: Reduced Operations Costs

  • LED lamps can last 50,000+ hours which means less lamps changes and less rental equipment to reach high areas.
  • Think in 10-year blocks when planning your project.
  • Reliability is important. Warranties don’t cover inconvenience.

What Should You Be Thinking About?

As you begin initial conversation about your parking area, it’s a great idea to think about the following questions:
  • What are your goals?
  • What pain points or problems do you want resolved?
  • What technology is currently in place?
  • Are lighting rebates available in your area?
  • What’s your budget and when would you like to get started?

 

Your lighting specialist will guide you through the process but it’s helpful to get feedback from you and your team.

What Our Clients Are Saying

We used to have to change the fluorescent bulbs weekly which required getting out the lift, in addition to coordinating times with security so we didn’t set off any alarms. Since converting to LED, we haven’t had to replace any LED lamps which helps save on manpower and pays for itself.
Rob, Smithsonian Institution
What we appreciated most, besides your excellent service and prices, was the ease of installation and the quick return on investment due to the PEPCO rebate. We also love the brightness and light consistency in our garage now. Also since LEDs are not affected by temperature like fluorescent we will have a much brighter garage in the winter months. We estimate payback in 1 ½ months.
Alex, JBG Smith
Last year our hotel in Annapolis participated the BGE Instant Lighting Discount Program. It was as simple as purchasing $1 LED bulbs and observing the benefits. The LED A lamps were noticed right away by our customers, offering instant and superior illumination. With the task of changing light bulbs eliminated, our staff now has time to perform other needed tasks. The energy savings has been off the charts and our investment paid for itself in less than a few months. I would highly recommend this to any facility.
SpringHill, Suites in Annapolis
Bay Lighting understands multi-family lighting. They have been instrumental in giving us a competitive edge with our unit renovations. They are committed to providing innovative lighting solutions.
Polinger Shannon & Luchs
We have a large inventory of buildings that require a wide variety of lamps and ballasts. We turn to Bay Lighting for next day delivery of quality lighting products. They offer names we trust at prices that suit our budget.
The Architect of the Capitol
A well lit parking lot is critical to business. When we have outages, we need immediate resolution. Bay Lighting’s quick turnaround and skilled staff keep our exterior lighting in top condition. We have the brightest lot at the airport.
