Ultimate Guide to Barn Lighting: Understanding Lumens for Optimal Illumination

30 Jan , 2024

Ultimate Guide to Barn Lighting

Choosing the right lighting for your barn is crucial for both functionality and efficiency. Whether you're lighting up a workspace, a livestock area, or just general storage, understanding the importance of lumens is key to making the best lighting decisions. In this guide, we’ll break down everything you need to know about lumens to ensure your barn is perfectly lit.

What are Lumens?

Lumens measure the total amount of visible light emitted by a source. The higher the lumens, the brighter the light. When planning the lighting for a barn, considering the lumen output is essential to ensure that the area is well-lit, making your barn safe and functional.

How Many Lumens Do You Need to Light a Barn?

The number of lumens required to light a barn depends on the intended use of the barn and its size. Here are a few guidelines:

  • General barn use: For typical storage and basic barn activities, aiming for about 10-20 lumens per square foot is a good start.
  • Workspaces in barns: If you're using part of the barn for tasks requiring precision, such as woodworking or repairs, you might need around 50-80 lumens per square foot.
  • Livestock areas: For areas housing animals, sufficient lighting is crucial for regular maintenance and veterinary care, typically around 20-50 lumens per square foot.

Calculating Your Barn’s Lumen Requirements

To calculate the total lumens needed for your barn, you can use a simple formula: Total Lumens=Area in square feet×Required lumens per square foot For example, a 1,000 square foot barn requiring 20 lumens per square foot would need 20,000 lumens.
