High Bay Fixtures
High and Low Bay fixtures are commonly found in warehouses, but can also be found in retail, parking garage and other commercial spaces. For fixtures that have not yet converted to LED technology, interior high bay fixtures are often powered by metal halide or fluorescent lighting systems. These non-LED systems typically require more energy for the same light output and have more limitations on lighting control strategies. Newer LED technologies provide distinct advantages that contribute to reducing the cost of operating the lighting system.
WarehouseThe directional nature of light generated by LED systems can be optimized to deliver light where it is needed. Whether your warehouse has distinct aisles or is an open floorplan, appropriate LED fixtures can be selected to optimize the distribution of light. Paired with appropriate controls, high traffic areas and low traffic aisles can be managed distinctly to provide the right light levels for the efficient operation of your warehouse.
Advanced DesignLED technology offers instant improvements on functionality. Where other technologies take time to come to full brightness or require a cooling off period before turning the lights back on, LED technology can be switched on or off as frequently as desired and instantaneously comes to full brightness. This high level of performance paired with appropriate controls can result in saving up to 80% or more for infrequently used warehouse aisles. In some warehouse applications, aisle lighting is controlled by occupancy sensors with lights switched off if a space has been vacant for three or more minutes.
