LED High Bays for Warehouse Lighting
Ensuring that your warehouse is well-lit, energy efficient and safe is extremely important. Making sure you select the right LED high bays for warehouse lighting can be confusing with different models and wattages available on the market. Most warehouses keep their lights in continuous operation, which can lead to very expensive utility bills. The great thing about LED warehouse lighting systems is that they will help on so many different fronts, by decreasing energy consumption while maximizing on light output. Their long-term longevity also plays an important role since traditional systems are known to consistently fail. By having the correct lighting system installed, your warehouse will also benefit from increased visibility, helping to reduce employee accidents. Below we will take a look a three different models of LED high bay lights for warehouses.
Classic Round LED High Bay
One of the most compelling features of round LED high bay lights is that it has the classic design of traditional HID fixtures. They are lightweight and feature a low-profile design, which allows them to be installed in applications with limited spacing options. Most have IP65 and IP66 ratings which makes them a classified sealed fixture, allowing them to be installed in areas where excessive moisture, dirt or dust may be present. Another benefit they provide over other LED high bay fixtures is by utilizing their water-proof rating they can be hosed-down for clean up, helping to keep your fixture looking clean and new.
Linear LED High Bay for Maximum Spread
Many of the high bay fixtures with LED technology on the market feature a rectangular design with acrylic diffusers, which are commonly referred to as linear LED high bays. Utilizing their linear design, these high bay lighting fixtures can help maximize the spread of the light output, especially in high ceiling applications. Many are offered in different lumen packages, and are constructed in 2-foot or 4-foot lengths. The acrylic diffuser is a great features because it will help cut-down on the glare emitted from the LEDs, thus helping to produce a uniform light output. These fixtures are great for low, mid and high ceiling applications.
Budget Friendly LED Tube High Bays
If you or your company are on a budget but are still looking into incorporating a warehouse LED lighting system, then the simple solution maybe to go with LED tube high bays. These fixtures are very versatile because they do not have an internal LED driver or ballast. Instead, they rely on each LED lamps internal driver for operation. The reason this fixture type is commonly chosen is the fact the LED lamps are so inexpensive to replace, and even if one lamp burns out the rest continue to burn. Most do not have the high lumen ratings that the round and linear high bays have, so these would not be appropriate for warehouse's with high ceilings. These fixtures do great when installed in ceiling heights that do not exceed 25-feet.
