The Installation of Car Park Lights

Posted on 19 August 2017 (0)

It is a known fact that commercial buildings should have parking lots for their employees and customers. The thing is that such should also ensure the safety of the people parking, as well as the cars being parked. That is the reason why most parking spaces are equipped with security systems like cameras. They are also being manned by security guards and parking attendants. Additionally, one that is often ignored when it comes to security is the installation of proper parking lights. Basically, parking lots should be well-lighted so that criminals will have doubts in approaching the area.

 

The thing is that building owners and operators should not just install illumination for car parks on their own. Such is due to the fact that there are certain electrical codes and building guidelines that need to be followed. Such are regulated and implemented by the government and its corresponding entities. With such in regard, in order to ensure that car park lights are properly and safely installed, people should make sure that they hire the right person or contractor. Basically, he or she should have the necessary license and/or certification. The hired contractor will also be responsible for making the electrical circuit plan of the space or the area. Such will include the proper distance between each light, the type of light bulb that will be placed on the ceiling, wall, and floor, and the likes.

 

After the planning stage, the hired contractor will also need to acquire the permit and go-signal from the government entity, usually the Department of Energy. After acquiring such, he or she should install the lights by carefully following the plan made, as well as the materials mentioned. Such move is very important so that the building owner and/or operator will have no problems when it is already time to apply or renew for his or her business license, as well as fire safety certificate. After the installation of the parking lights, owners and operators should also make sure that such are properly maintained. Such is important so that the life span of the lights will be longer. Such will also ensure the safety of the building and its occupants.

 

The maintenance of the bulbs or lights includes regular cleaning. Such can just involve simple dusting and sweeping techniques by employees who have been trained to do such. The bulbs and the wiring systems should also be regularly checked by electricians to ensure that there is no damage. In case there is, the repair should also be done immediately.
