Lighting of a Gas Station: The definitive guide to implement it correctly

Due to improved communications and the increasingly widespread use of passenger cars, transport trucks, etc. Service stations are an essential element for any user who travels.

Gas stations are no longer facilities where only fuel is served and now have a multitude of services such as supermarkets, restaurants, cafeterias or car washes. That is why the lighting of a gas station is, today, a key and differentiating element that not only allows the user to visualize the service station, but also, with correct management, it can be an element that allows us to save on our electricity bill.

If you want to know all the details about how you should illuminate a gas station or service station, you are in the right place. Read on and don’t miss any details!

Benefits of a correct lighting of a gas station

LED technology has become a great ally for a large number of service stations as it has great advantages such as:

  • Lower energy consumption
  • Longer lifespan compared to other systems
  • Little or no maintenance
  • Wide variety of designs


However, these are not its only advantages. LED luminaires have the ability to adapt to a multitude of surfaces, in addition, they allow their power to be regulated and, in some cases, to change their color temperature, which makes them a very flexible solution.

Energy costs savings

LED lights have the ability to offer a greater amount of light power than other systems and, in addition, they are the most energy efficient luminaires.

These two factors make implementing LED lights in a gas station the best solution to illuminate spaces while saving costs.

Great visibility for users

It allows better use of the facilities and services by customers and employees thanks to the fact that they emit a light that provides great visibility to any space and element.

In addition, it can be an essential element to enhance the company’s brand, since properly used it can illuminate signs or logos and make them very attractive.

Little or no maintenance

LED lights have a high resistance, so they need a much lower maintenance and replacement rate than other systems.

Although the initial investment is usually higher, its high performance, savings, useful life and low maintenance mean that the investment pays for itself in a short time.


LED lighting systems are a sustainable alternative when compared to other traditional systems such as incandescent lighting, halogen lights, etc. This type of lighting helps us to consume less energy and, therefore, to generate fewer emissions.

In addition, in its composition there are no polluting products that can be toxic to people and the environment.

How the lighting of a gas station or service station should be

Next, we review the main aspects to take into account when we are going to choose the lighting for a service station:

  • Must have non-flammable materials
  • Have a neutral/cool color temperature (between 4,000 K and 5,000 K)
  • Correct distribution that guarantees visibility and helps to avoid glare


As you can see, these aspects are especially relevant so that every gas station is a safe space, where the use of the facilities by customers and workers is free of dangers that could lead to accidents due to the scarcity or poor quality of light or even to the presence of substances that, in contact with the fuel, could cause a fire.
