Big box retailers such as do-it-yourself businesses approach lighting in a different way than supermarkets and fashion stores. The high spaces require lighting solutions with high light output and should provide a uniform and evenly illumination such as high bay solutions. Attractive lighting is crucial for retail. Adequate lighting will help customers to make purchasing decisions.


Several studies show that big box stores with sufficient daylight generate higher sales volumes than their counterparts. However, daylight is not always desired, in connection with UV and IR radiation, or it is not even possible because of the construction of the building. This context shows that high-quality, white artificial light that matches daylight can work just as effectively. Light with good color and quality will increase the sales of merchandise and reduce warranty claims. People feel better in high-lit areas.
