What are industrial lighting fixtures?
Industrial lighting fixtures, as the name suggests, are the lighting fixtures in industrial use scenarios. Commonly-seen industrial use scenarios include the factory, warehouse, workshop, etc., where different lighting fixtures are needed, whether indoor or outdoor. Then, what are the characteristics of industrial lighting fixtures? We can take a look at them from the following different aspects.
From the perspective of application contexts, industrial indoor lighting usually needs to adapt to a relatively larger space. If we want to illuminate rows of racks in a warehouse, in addition to a wide range of light projection, we generally need more lighting fixtures and should allow for higher power consumption. The cost has then become a very important consideration. Therefore, people have been looking for more economical lighting solutions in these scenarios.
From the perspective of lighting environments, there are workshops where explosives are produced and fire hazards are stored, and there are also dusty, humid, or high-temperature factories, in addition to the general production environment. In these surroundings, we need to pick lighting fixtures with higher safety standards. In explosive and flammable workshops, we shall avoid using lights producing high heat or with poor heat dissipation performance; while in dusty or humid factories, we try our best to use dust-proof and waterproof lights.
When it comes to lighting requirements and needs, we know that the illuminance required by a general warehouse differs from a workshop that’s for precision work. So, industrial lighting solutions depend on specific scenarios, environments, and needs; we choose lighting fixtures to meet the specific needs according to scenarios and environments.
Today I’m going to introduce LED industrial lighting fixtures. Why do we choose LED lighting fixtures instead of traditional fluorescent lights, metal halide lights, or incandescent light bulbs?
First, from the perspective of cost, LED lights are energy-saving and have a longer service life. They not only save electricity costs but also reduce the costs of replacement and installation. It is a more cost-effective choice.
Second, LED lights are green and environment-friendly. They allow low-thermal and low-voltage running conditions and are safe and reliable for use in factories with adverse environments.
Besides, LED lights have high luminance, no flickering, no glare, and good color rendering, which are very suitable for use in workshops that are for precise work.
The advantages of LED lights are far more than those. To adapt to different industrial lighting scenarios, LED lights are also made into different fixtures. Next, allow me to introduce several LED industrial lighting fixtures, for your selection.
LED Industrial Lighting Solutions
My first recommendation is LED high bay lights. Some workshops have a large space and high ceiling, and the lights have to hang 20ft or 30ft higher above the ground. To meet the lighting requirements of the above scenario, a lighting fixture that can provide sufficient illuminance is needed, and LED high bay lights are a good choice.
Take Lepro 240W Dimmable UFO High Bay LED Light as an example. It has an illuminance output of 32000lm, equivalent to 600W Metal Halide, and is suitable for hanging at the height of 19ft-28ft above the ground. It has a service life of 50,000 hours and is IP65 waterproof, able to adapt to different industrial lighting environments.
LED shop lights are also commonly-seen industrial lighting fixtures, and many LED shop lights on the market can be connected in series. Lepro 42W 4ft LED shop lights, for example, support a serial connection of up to 4 lights. When you need to illuminate a large area, they meet your needs very well.
LED flood lights, also called LED security lights, are usually used outdoors, such as outside workshops. LED flood lights have high brightness, can illuminate a large area at night, and are highly durable. They adapt to various harsh environments and are safe and reliable for night lighting.
Generally speaking, for home use such as outside the garage or in the backyard, you can choose a model with relatively low power, such as Lepro 15W Outdoor LED Flood Light; while for use in a factory, you can choose a relatively high power version that can output higher brightness and illuminate a wider range, such as Lepro 100W Outdoor LED Flood Light.
Nowadays, people more and more use LED tube lights to replace traditional fluorescent lights, because in comparison, LED tube lights are more energy-efficient, environment-friendly, and have a longer service life. LED tube lights are divided into different types, including Type A, Type B, Type C, etc. Among them, the double-end Type B LED Tube Light can be installed and used directly and you can just discard the original ballast. They are usually used in warehouses, garages, workplaces, and other places.
The above are some commonly seen LED lights that are suitable for industrial lighting. You can choose suitable ones according to the specific lighting scenarios and applications. Of course, industrial lighting fixtures are far more than those. You can check the guide on various LED lighting fixtures under the Lepro brand to learn more.
