It's clear that garages across the nation are neglected with poor, outdated lighting. After all, a garage is a place you go to repair, construct or store items, in which you need good lighting to achieve all of these successfully. There's nothing worse than trying to accomplish one of the above objectives with poor lighting, and here at STKR Concepts, we understood that this needed to change. In order for us to succeed in this, we needed to know what type of lighting is best for a garage.
Back in the day, old-school fluorescent light was the ideal lighting. However, new and innovative lighting solutions evolved into the LED bulb. This lighting type offers a long life of energy efficiency and can deliver immensely bright illumination that isn't matched with any other lighting solution.
After being industry-leading professionals in lighting for some time now, we understood that there weren't any highly sophisticated, powerful, yet compact lighting solutions available on the market. Also, all of the solutions were large, ugly fluorescent light fixtures that require hard wiring, or extension cords running across the ceiling.
With our multipurpose lights, you're able to use them in multiple environments on top of providing outstanding light to your garage. Plus, super easy and quick install that requires no knowledge of electrical wiring.
In this article, we're going to talk about our ground-breaking lighting inventions and how your garage can benefit from them.
By being a revolutionary company, my team and I have been able to create three of the most incredible garage lighting solutions. Each of these has been rigorously tested to achieve the best possible outcome, and the quality and design certainly show for it.
First on the list is our MPI (multi-point illumination). If you're not techy in any way, shape, or form, then this simple to install MPI lighting is the perfect option. Unlike most traditional lights that only have one point of light per light fitting, you're able to generate five points of light per light socket with our MPI system.
We saw there was a design fault with regular light fixtures. By having a design like this, you're able to use one light socket and connect up to five 360 degree extremely versatile lights that combine to produce 7500 lumens. Being able to extend the 4 pod lights up to 9.5 feet away from the light socket ensures that you don't have dark shadowy areas in your garage.
It's also remarkably versatile and comes equipped with the following:
If you are looking for a ‘super-bulb’ or some kind of ‘easy-button’ type of answer to the age-old dark garage issue, then the Trilight is your 30-second solution. You literally unscrew your standard bulb and then screw this 3 bladed light fixture in. You instantly get way more light coming in at 4000 lumens and you are probably using way less energy at only 24 watts.
STKR Concepts is actually the original creator of this type of light with an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign that caught the attention of many larger companies that soon flooded the market with cheap copies. Be careful out there, as these copies aren’t all completely safety certified and watch the specs as many of these copy lights are less than truthful about their specs, warranty and you may not even be saving any money per month as some of the copies use as much as 60 watts, two and half times as much as our Trilight. If you want to support the original inventors, get a solid warranty and deal with a company based here in the USA, then choose STKR.
Why do we love the Trilight so much?
Want to reap the benefits of a Trilight but without having to screw it into an existing light socket? The Trilight Shoplight is able to provide just that. This drop-light design can quickly produce light from a 120V standard house socket.
But, why is this so great? With this light, you're able to take it anywhere you wish as long as you have an outlet nearby. Instead of having to rely on a centralized light socket, here you simply take the light where you need it (with an extension cord if necessary) and hang or set down the light to illuminate your workspace. Use it hand held, aim hook or hang it on the task at hand, or even hang it above a workbench or work area for additional overhead lighting where traditional ceiling lighting is insufficient or not prewired.
More benefits to the Trilight Shoplight:
Each of these lights works flawlessly for garages and can provide you with that much-needed light coverage to guarantee you don't have dark patches or shadows. All of the above lights are proven to work for around 50,000 + hours but are also protected by a 3-year defect warranty in case the unexpected was to occur.
Color temperature in lighting is measured in kelvin, and there are three main kelvin ranges within the industry. These are 2700K-3000K (soft white), 3500K-4100K (bright white), and lastly, 5000k-7000k (daylight). Each are used in different environments depending on the overall reasoning behind the lighting. However, as a rule of thumb,the best color temperature for a garage is something around 4000k - 7000k. This is powerful enough to produce enough illumination to lower the strain on your eyes.
2700K-3000K (soft white) - Typically, something around this kelvin will produce a yellowish, orange light and can generally be found in living quarters, such as a living room.
3500K-4100K (bright white) - Something this range of kelvin will produce almost white light, but it'll still have a slight tint of yellow within it, and something on the higher spectrum of this range is suitable for a garage.
5000k-7000k (daylight) - All lighting solutions that offer this type of color temperature will be more than enough to provide you with that much-needed light within your garage.
Looking to upgrade your workshop with powerful and efficient lighting? Here at STKR Concepts, we have made it our mission to revitalize the market with ground-breaking lighting solutions that are incredibly affordable. Below we discuss some of our finest inventions and why they might be the perfect choice for your workshop.
We've discussed these above as they'll work great for garages, but this will most definitely convert to workshops as well. All three, either the MPI,Trilight (light fitting), or the Trilight Shoplight (120v), will provide ample lighting in your workshop.
Each of these can be installed within minutes. Both the MPI and the first Trilight can be screwed directly into an existing light socket. If you don't have a handy light socket installed within your workshop but have an open 120v wall outlet? Then opting in for the Trilight Shoplight will readily offer you that workshop lighting you so badly need.
If you want something that is slightly more compact and portable, I recommend looking into our extensive range of personal lighting solutions. Each provides convenience, excellent light output, and also durability.
Let's speak about one of our most universal ranges yet, the Flexit. This innovative design is like no other on the market and provides individuals with superb benefits. Some of the benefits that are offered by the Flexit range can be seen below.
If you're an adventurer and rarely have a power source insight to recharge your light's battery. You have the option to purchase our Flexit Solar, which has both a USB and solar panel equipped so you're able to charge it on the go.
If you're a woodworker, car enthusiast, dirt bike lover, then our mine series is more than worth looking at. Have you ever been in the position when you're struggling for light in awkwardly tight places or just generally somewhere that you aren't able to supply sufficient light to? Then this series will undoubtedly help you get out of that rut.
These small and compacted mine-like flashlights are fully magnetic and can be attached to most all metal surfaces securely. For example, if you're a woodworker doing some lathe work, you may want additional light, so you're able to see what you're turning. Either of these lights from the mine series can magnetize itself onto the machine and provide you with that angle of light you need right up close.
There are two items in this series. They are the "light" and "Pro". The light is available in 15 lumens and is roughly the size of a golf ball, whereas the pro is about the size of a baseball and is able to achieve 250 lumens. Nevertheless, both offer great benefits, and these can be seen below.
If you're someone that needs a small compact light that can easily stand or magnetize itself in awkward places, then this is for you. The convenience this torch provides is immense, and it's very cost-effective.
If you're in a similar situation to the one mentioned above, another alternative option you can choose is our pocket lights. Instead of the sphere or mine-like shape, this light can easily fit into a shirt pocket and be carried around at all times. Plus it has a flexible LED head so it can transition from a 90° right angle pocket light to a hand-held flashlight with the twist of the wrist.
I think this is a great workshop tool due to its magnetic and hooked base. Here you're able to hang, place or magnetize the torch to an object in tricky areas. No matter if you have the best garage lighting in the entire world, nothing will be able to provide you light in certain situations apart from something like this.
