Cold Storage Lighting

For decades, facility lighting has remained one of the cold storage industry’s most significant challenges. Traditional HID and HIF lighting fixtures — the main industrial lighting choices for decades — have never performed well in refrigerated environments. That’s why record numbers of cold storage facilities are turning to the Digital Lumens Intelligent LED Lighting System. It offers consistent performance and durability in all temperature environments; can be frequently cycled on/off without impacting the longevity of the lamp source or fixture; instantly returns to full intensity when activated, even in -40ºF chillers; and generates minimal heat, significantly reducing refrigeration loads. This enables cold storage facilities to dramatically reduce lighting-related energy usage, with no re-lamping or re-ballasting required.

Intelligent Lighting System Features

  • Dramatically less energy use than traditional cold storage lighting solutions — up to 90% less — while providing excellent light levels
  • Instant-on without warm-up times for light when and where it is needed
  • Integrated occupancy and daylight harvesting sensors in every fixture to drive maximum energy savings
  • Full-range dimming on a fixture-by-fixture basis for maximum control, savings, and safety (e.g., nightlight settings in cross aisles and back corners for safety and security purposes)
  • Optics options that either distribute light evenly across open spaces and work levels, or concentrate light in racked or pick aisles
  • Detailed lighting system energy measurement and reporting for easy assessment of system use, ongoing facility optimization, and utility measurement and verification
  • No re-lamping and/or mercury disposal costs associated with HIF fixtures
  • DLC qualification and UL listing
  • Reported TM-21 lifetime of 103,000 hours for high bay fixtures
  • 10-year warranty on the complete fixture
  • LightRules® lighting and energy management software for complete control over lighting settings, comprehensive reporting, and unmatched operational insight

If you’re considering a retrofit of your existing HID or HIF fixtures, or specifying lighting for a new facility, consider our ultra-efficient LED high bay lighting solutions. With integrated intelligence, the Digital Lumens Intelligent LED Lighting System is more than a retrofit. It’s a major upgrade that delivers unmatched savings, complete flexibility, and proven value.
