Lighting Your Cold Room

In any cold room or temperature-controlled area, lighting is a key consideration. Cold stores, food packaging plants, server rooms and other chilled areas can’t rely on windows to provide illumination – and must meet exacting requirements for safety and accuracy of operation, making a high-quality lighting solution a crucial part of the set-up.

However, the lights in these environments are presented with a series of challenges not faced by other luminaires – so they must be specially designed and equipped to meet these pitfalls. Every Cooling Solution is able to design and implement lighting solutions that operate under any cold room conditions. Providing you with a lighting solution that is efficient, reliable, effective and easy to work with. We can also provide high-quality lighting design services, including the use of cutting-edge lighting design software and simulations to ensure that your illumination solution is perfect for your needs and meets all relevant standards.

The Challenges Faced by Cold Room Lighting

The low temperatures within a cold room may cause the cold room lighting to suffer reduced efficiency and the heat released by any lighting system may cause the room to warm up, forcing the refrigeration system to work harder in response. At the same time, the harsh cleaning chemicals used in cleaning certain chilled areas may corrode the lighting or damage its function over time – the need for a specialised cold room lighting solution is obvious. To meet these needs, ECS can supply and install a range of luminaires that have been specifically designed to cope in the unforgiving conditions of the cold room.

How ECS Lighting Meets These Challenges

In order to provide the best and most efficient cold room lighting, Every Cooling Solution relies on a number of factors. First, all of ECS’ lighting options are built with the latest generation of LED lighting technology, providing the absolute best energy efficiency and slashing the amount of energy emitted by the lights as heat. However, even this isn’t perfect – the most efficient LED lighting yet designed still emits 70% of its total energy output as heat.

Every Cooling Solution completely heads this problem off by using specially-designed LED Lighting systems which extract the heat from the luminaire before it is released into the room, resulting in an LED lighting rig which never affects the temperature of the cold room! Compared to ordinary LED lighting, this can save up to 20% of your total energy use, as your cooling units don’t have to work as hard to counteract the warming effects of the lighting.

ECS also offers cold room lighting solutions that can be integrated with any of the primary lighting control systems on the market, and can offer sensors and switches to help you to programme your lighting solutions to provide the best possible lighting efficiency and effectiveness.
