A lighting mock-up is a full-scale evaluation using real fixtures. This allows the design team to see the effect that the fixture is going to have when installed. Whether you are working on a new building or retrofitting an existing one, a mock-up is an opportunity to see the proposed fixture(s) in action. Some mock-ups are evaluations of one light against other similar ones, other mock-ups are verifying a design concept. You can even explore and refine your design ideas in a workshop kind of process.

Our trained staff will assist you in our 1,200 sq. ft. mock-up space. It is equipped with 2 ~20’x20’ movable ceilings and theatrical walls. Just get the fixtures to us and tell us what you want the mock-up to look like, and we will do the rest. Mockups can be simple or elaborate depending on your needs. You can bring in furniture, shelving, carpet, or we can even paint the walls. With over 25 years of building mock-ups, we can also assist you in refining the installation so that you can make the most of your experience.


Please note: LDL focuses on commercial and industrial lighting & systems only.
