Why gas station lighting matters
Whether a gas station is well lit is one of the governing visitor-driving factors. To be demanded and earning, a gas station must have a good level of lighting at every object at the site.
A gas station has the following area:
- Refueling area. This is the main area that is located under a special shelter. This shelter must be well lit to be noticeable from afar in the evening and at night. Proper lighting requires compliance with applicable construction standards and regulations;
- Adjacent area. This area includes the entrance and exit territory outside the sheltered area. It also covers the parking zone.
- Store and control room. This is where people pay for refueling and buy something from the gas station store.
Since each of the listed areas has a different purpose, they are all subject to different lighting requirements and governmental standards regarding light fixtures.
