LED lighting has quickly become one of the most popular commercial and residential lighting solutions. It’s no wonder when LED bulbs boast an exceptional operational life of around 50,000 hours, an 80-90% efficiency, and a relatively low environmental footprint. For business owners, this means keeping costs low over a long period of time. In addition, LED lighting is also exceptionally versatile, with products for every need. Here are some of the most commonly used types of LED lighting.

 

Strip Light Fixtures

These fixtures can be suspended or surface mounted for general or task lighting. They are perfect for warehouses, storage facilities, or workshops. LED strip lights differ from fluorescent ones because they eliminate the need for individual tube lights and are available in colours proven to reduce eye strain. 

 

Ceiling LED Panel Lights

Common in offices and schools, LED panels offer efficient, easy to install ambient lighting. Their thin design allows them to fit into places that traditional troffers are just too bulky to be installed.

 

High and Low Bay LED Retrofit Lamps

High and low bay lamps are built for wide light distribution. Perfect for aisles and hallways, these retrofit lamps offer the benefits of LED lighting without the need to replace fixtures. Retail stores, warehouses, and gyms can all benefit from this type of lighting. 

 

Commercial LED Flood Lights

This type of lighting is ideal for any space that needs extra security. Many businesses will use LED flood lights in parking lots or around doorways. They can be paired with photocells, timers, and motion sensors. 

 

Recessed Lighting

Recessed LED lighting is a convenient way to tuck away the fixture without sacrificing light distribution. These units are mounted inside the ceiling and can work even with sloped surfaces.

While this is in no way an exhaustive list, it does help to illustrate the versatility of LED lighting. If you’re interested in how any of these lighting solutions could benefit your facility, contact your electrical experts at 4-Star Electric today!
