What is a light industrial unit?
There’s no hard-and-fast definition of a light industrial unit. In many ways, the term is a generic one, used to describe any unfurnished, open-plan space that can be fitted to meet the commercial needs of your business. Typically, they have a floor space of less than 120,000 square feet and lack interior walls, giving you plenty of room to install equipment, machinery, and other fixtures and fittings. While the word ‘industrial’ might make you think of manufacturing processes, light industrial units can be put to a wide variety of uses.
