There are some significant benefits that you can get from LED high bay lights in your warehouse or manufacturing facility. LED lights can be as bright or brighter than standard lighting, and they are very cost-effective to operate and do not require any significant modification to the electrical already in place to install in place of your old lights.
In many warehouses, high bay lights ensure that the lights are close to the ceiling and less likely to be hit by forklifts or stock pickers moving freight from the top of your warehouse storage racks. Using LED high bay lights adds even more protection because there are no glass bulbs inside the housings to break.
If a machine hits the LED (light-emitting diodes) lights, the housing may crack or break, but there will not be glass raining down around the operator or anyone working on the floor below. The light may even work until you replace the housing or have your lighting contractor take care of it.
Visibility In Work Areas
The lights are mounted so high in the ceiling that the amount of light they need to produce is also critical to ensure you have adequate light in the area. LED lights solve that issue because they can be turned up or down as needed and the color of the lights can be altered or adjusted to ensure you have the best possible lighting in the work area.
The light contractor you are working with to install your new LED high bay lights can show you several models that will work for your application and ensure you have the light required. If you need more light, you can switch to an LED light with more diodes in it with a higher light rating, and it may not cost any more to run than the one you are already using.
Switching to a LED high bay light fixture can benefit your company financially because the cost of operating the lights is far lower than conventional lights. If you upgrade all the lights in your facility, the energy cost savings can be significant, especially in a large warehouse.
The type of LED lights you select can have an impact on the savings, but in general, even higher-powered LED lights are less costly to operate than a conventional light. The longevity of an LED high bay light is also longer, and because you do not have to change a bulb in the future, the maintenance cost is also reduced. In the long run, there are very few, if any, negatives to changing your warehouse lighting to LED fixtures, and lowering your carbon footprint through reducing energy use is good for any business.
