Booth Lighting

Post by hallinandez » Tue Oct 22, 2019 2:00 pm

Hi forum, hope you are all well.

Got a 4x4x8 booth and I'm at the stage of deciding lighting, I wanted to keep it as minimal looking as possible so decided against the LED batten type lighting.

I was going to surface mount a 300mmX1200mm LED panel on the ceiling

But then wondered if I could use recessed LED spotlights in 2 rows of 3

Which route would you go?

Also what temperature colour do you prefer when spraying?

Many thanks

The first one would be the easiest to install but will take a lot of work and extra wiring for the led ones for sure so if you have the head room I would go with the larger one.
One of the biggest problems for me at least when something is hanging is shadows on some of the areas. I have two LED track lights that are behind me that aim into the booth. The higher you can mount them then the better and you will not be in the light. If your booth is deep enough the having something like that right at the opening would be better as long as a roll in rack can clear them if you use one that is or plan to latter own.

I am not sure what you are talking about when you ask what temperature color do we like?

I always like the daylight range color temperature for most all led shop lighting. That's what I have in my ceiling lights, blasting cabinet and my small powder spray cabinet. IMO they are a huge improvement over the incandescent and fluorescent bulbs they replaced.

I prefer 4000k for most lighting in my shops. It’s a good white light. But most lighting has major gaps in the color range. So be careful.

A lot of it depends on where the item will be used. If it’s a bicycle, used outdoors, daylight might be better (but not always). If indoor, as low as 2700k might be better. Since it’s a problem meeting the range, I use 4000k.
