Upgrade your less efficient commercial or residential lighting to LED with LED Flat Panels from Stars and Stripes Lighting. These fixtures use significantly less energy and last much longer than a traditional fluorescent fixture. They also provide better light output that has better color consistency and looks cleaner. By upgrading to LED you can save over 75% on your energy bill. Flat panels have become overwhelmingly popular in the last few years, especially in applications such as offices, retail facilities, schools, and garages. They are designed to replace in-ceiling troffers, and come in common grid sizes like 1x4, 2x2, and 2x4. As technology has evolved, many edge-lit flat panels are down to a half inch in thickness, making them even more versatile.
Two options are available for flat panel design, edge-lit or direct-lit. The main difference between them is where the light source is installed on the panel. Each have their own positive characteristics which comes from where the LEDs are located.
Edge-lit panels have their LEDs incorporated in an aluminum or metal housing that surrounds the fixture. This is why edge lit fixtures are much thinner and easier to install. The light generated by the LEDs is passed to the middle where it interacts with a lens that redirects the light to the surface of the fixture. The light output that is created is smooth, uniform and has such a broad pattern, eliminating unnecessary shadows.
Have you ever wanted the ability to change the color of your light output but your stuck with what the fixture originally came with? Then tunable LED panels are the ideal solution. These fixtures can be controlled with an app on your favorite smart device, with a wall control or even a hand-held remote. Tunable lighting has became increasingly popular because of the benefits it provides in applications like schools and offices. There may be occasions where your light needs to be more or less intense, tunable lighting allows you to make the adjustment and then return it to its original output.
