To ALWAYS perform at an optimum level, your body shop lighting needs to perfect. Every site and unit is different, therefore, you need to ensure that your light fittings are tailored to your individual needs and requirements. Unfortunately, no blueprint works industry-wide – it’d make our life a whole lot easier if there was.

So, to help you decide which body shop light fitting is perfect for your site, in this post, we’re going to run through some of our most popular products. From full site fittings to portable additional lighting, at IDES, we provide a variety of industry-leading solutions that are ideal for many different working environments


We’ll cover: 


What Makes IDES Products So Great?

Tailored to Specific Needs

We believe that all lighting solutions need to be bespoke and tailored to your individual needs and requirements. But why? Unfortunately, no one-size-fits-all approach works within the industry. Each site and workplace is different, therefore, they present a variety of challenges and hazards that need to be overcome. 

Unless you account for these obstacles with a bespoke lighting solution, you can’t expect your lighting to best position your business. If your light fittings are tailored to your individual needs, it means that your team can always produce high-quality standards and incredible results. 

At IDES, we always ensure that the best products are designed and recommended to suit your needs. But how? Well, our expert team is vastly experienced in working with a wide array of environments and settings. Plus, we carry out free site surveys throughout the UK to ensure that nothing is missed and all requirements are adequately catered for. 


Energy Efficient 

If your current lighting solution isn’t energy efficient, it means that you’re undoubtedly using more energy than you need to be. With that in mind, it means that your outgoings will be increased and it’ll directly impact your profitability. If you can reduce costs and energy while increasing performance, surely that’s a no brainer – isn’t it? 

At IDES, our products are all expertly designed to be energy-efficient. Therefore, they’re high output solutions but require little energy to provide the perfect lighting environment. Inadequate lighting solutions are expensive and can be harmful to the wider environment outside of your site. 

If you can do your bit for the environment just by installing an energy-efficient lighting system – it’s an easy decision to make that’ll have a great impact.


Near-Daylight Replication

The perfect lighting for body shops is near daylight. Of course, within sites, it’s impossible to expose your working environment to perfect daylight as shadows are naturally created when inside. Shadows make it hard to colour match and achieve a consistent finish on your projects, therefore, you need a solution that replicates this as closely as possible. 

At IDES, our products are carefully designed with energy-efficient lighting strips that achieve the closest lighting tone to daylight as possible. That way, you can be confident that your team are best positioned to produce amazing results in everything that they do. By removing the impact of any shadows, it’ll increase overall efficiency, productivity and safety too

Our products are flexible too – therefore, where shadows can’t be avoided, you can use portable lighting solutions to eradicate these dark areas. So, wherever your team is working within your site, you can be confident that the lighting is more than adequate to deliver the best job possible at all times. 



Our BOOTHLUX range is designed with vehicle body shops and spray booths in mind. Within spray booths, a lot of the common jobs are finicky and intricate, therefore, you need the best lighting solution possible to ensure that high-quality standards are always achieved.



By installing the BOOTHLUX, your site will be perfect for colour matching, paintwork and other jobs that demand high consistency levels. Without the perfect lighting tone, your team wouldn’t be able to provide an acceptable standard. The last thing that somebody would want is an inconsistent and dodgy paint job, right? 

The lighting within a spray booth is the most important factor – and we’ve designed our range with this in mind. The BOOTHLUX range is a group of high-output LED luminaires that are retrofitted to existing spray booth fittings. 

Therefore, if your booths aren’t performing how you’d like them to, you can be confident that this is the perfect product to easily meet your customer demands. 


Our AUTOLUX Range 

Our AUTOLUX family range is designed to be used throughout your entire facility. That way, you can maximise the space within your vehicle body shop and enhance your overall business performance. Quite simply, there’s no point limiting certain areas of your body shop with poor lighting – it needs to be consistent throughout your site for maximum effectiveness.

The AUTOLUX family can be installed as a brand new lighting solution in a modern site, or they can be rolled out as an upgrade within the tray systems of an old site too. There are no limitations to this product range and they’re proven to be beneficial for many businesses. By improving your lighting solution, you’re improving your business. 

The AUTOLUX family are super energy-efficient. So, while upgrading your lighting solution may seem like a large investment at the time, you’ll be thankful in the long run. You can look forward to near-daylight tones achieved with minimal energy. Therefore, costs will be reduced and performance will be truly enhanced.



The MOBILUX range works closely in tandem with the AUTOLUX. Whereas the latter is designed to be rolled out throughout your whole body shop, the MOBILUX family can assist in any particularly dark spots that any lighting solution wouldn’t be able to accommodate.

For example, large machinery and vehicle ramps can create shadows within a site that are unavoidable. Therefore, with the assistance of the MOBILUX family, these mobile lighting solutions can be dragged around the site to provide lighting support wherever is needed the most. If you’re working under a ramp, the extra light is essential for health and safety alone. 

Or, if you simply need extra light to ensure that the finicky job you’re carrying out is spot on every time, you can benefit from the MOBILUX range and call on them whenever they’re needed. This family of portable high-output lights are essential for the smooth operation and success of any vehicle body shop.
