You want current clients and future customers to be safe on your property. One of the best ways to keep your business safe at night and deter possible intruders is by installing lighting around your property.
Outdoor lighting for business safety and security means making sure that parking lots and areas of vulnerability are well lit so that would-be criminals have nowhere to hide, and customers feel safe walking to and from their cars. Safety also means making sure that obstacles – invisible in the darkness – are illuminated so that patrons and guests won’t injure themselves.
Many shoppers avoid poorly lit businesses because they feel unsafe. Having a well-lit business encourages people to walk through your door, and the potential for increasing sales rises dramatically.
When considering outdoor lighting for business safety and security, think about the different areas around your property’s exterior where more light will make a significant difference.
Landscaping, Walkways, & Stairs
Illuminate walkways and stairs to reduce the chance of someone tripping and falling. Besides adding safety and security, lighting landscaping and walkways also creates a warm, welcoming environment that invites patrons to enter and stay awhile.
Signs, Entryways, & Addresses
A well-lit entryway welcomes guests and directs them to the right door to enter. No matter where your address is located, having it lit helps customers find you easily after darkness sets.
If you have an entrance with signage and landscaping features, consider making it a Grand Entrance with professional commercial lighting that says, “Welcome!”
Excellent lighting in parking lots is essential to ensure the safety of your customers. When parking lots are well-lit, customers are able to find their vehicle when they are ready to leave. Lighting also eliminates shadows and places where would-be criminals might hide.
In addition to illuminating puddles, potholes, and other hazards, lighting makes it easier for security guards to spot suspicious figures or vehicles.
Large Expanses of Open Space
If your property has large expanses of open space, consider security flood lights and motion sensing lights. These lights are known for projecting long-range beams to cover sizable areas.
But forget about security lights that are blindingly bright and ugly. The new trend of LED security lights shine brighter, while offering energy efficiency, superior performance, and longevity. This means savings for you!
