ILLUMINATING SUPERMARKETS WITH LEDiL OPTICSThe very best general, aisle and high bay lighting solutions Lighting is a key element of any retail environment. Given their often large size, lighting solutions for supermarkets and hypermarkets can be especially difficult. By working closely with luminaire manufacturers and supermarket owners LEDiL have designed a range of solutions to make products and produce stand out in these challenging retail spaces.
LEDiL offer supermarket owners a variety of flexible optical solutions for replacing outdated fluorescent lighting. Two simple and popular concepts to create uniform illumination are to install linear luminaires in semi-continuous lines or evenly spaced grids. Another great option is to install track light spots, a common and popular solution for highlighting specific product categories or selected product displays.
Aisle lighting is especially important to the supermarket retail environment. To ensure lighting is evenly and efficiently distributed on the shelves, luminaires need to be located in the middle of the aisle. Both symmetric and asymmetric light distribution is used in aisle lighting. Linear luminaires with symmetric light distribution provide higher lighting levels on the floor when shelves are illuminated with sufficient light levels. In contrast, linear luminaires with asymmetric light distribution are more effective for vertical illumination and can produce twice as much brightness on the shelves compared to the floor.

HIGH BAY LIGHTING
High bay lighting is the solution of choice in hypermarkets and other retail areas with high ceilings. High bay lighting is easy to install, has a low number of luminaires and with controlled optics producing a narrow beam glare reduction is vastly reduced. Combining high bay lighting with additional track lighting gives supermarket retailers the freedom to highlight specific displays or promotional products.
