LED Warehouse Lights

Quality is everything when it comes to any auditorium lighting system. In fact, for this application, we think it might even be more important than the intense energy savings (and other major cost savers) that a LED auditorium lighting system will save when an auditorium converts to LED.

The quality of an auditorium lighting system is defined by its ability to be dimmed, instant on / off (no warm up), no flickering or buzzing, and proper footprints. All of these are achievable with LED, and we will help you choose the best LED lights for auditorium facilities to ensure you have the perfect lighting system in your auditorium.

Best part? Not only will you have quality auditorium light fixtures with our LEDs, but you will also gain all of the other benefits that LED auditorium lighting fixtures will bring along with them, which we list more below.

Commercial LED Warehouse Lighting

LED technology by far is the biggest of energy saving warehouse lighting solutions on the market today. Metal halide or high-pressure sodium warehouse lighting options are no match for LED warehouse lights in today’s marketplace.

When comparing commercial metal halide or HPS commercial warehouse lighting fixtures to LED, the features of a quality and safe warehouse lighting system are clearly won by LED technology.

The benefits of LED vs Metal Halide, HPS or fluorescent warehouse lights include things like energy savings up to 75%, increased lifespans up to 2 to 3 times longer, decreased maintenance costs, improved quality of light, and improved productivity.

Benefits of LED Warehouse Lighting

There are many features that separate LED warehouse lighting from older HID models. We have High-Bays that are specifically designed for taller ceilings, larger areas and warehouse spaces with tall shelving. They direct light more evenly to create powerful even lighting with little glare and even distribution. This makes them perfect for commercial and industrial applications such as warehouses, storage facilities and other factories.

Longer lasting lamps. LED lamps last up to 10 + years and even longer when controls are added.
Offers high efficiency lighting. This will help you save on utility costs and reduce your electricity bills.

4 Reasons to Convert to LED Warehouse Lighting

1. Energy savings up to 80%

With advancements in LED fixture technology and higher lumens per watts configurations now available, reducing energy consumption by over 70% is not unreasonable. Coupled with controls like motion sensors, achieving reductions in excess of 80% is achievable and reasonable to expect, especially if there are areas with limited daily foot traffic.

Converting over from fluorescent light systems should see an energy savings of at least 50%. However, it is important to note that you need to pay attention to a few details.

* Never buy a LED fixture based on the watts consumed.

* Focus on lumens you need and pay attention to lumens per watt. You will consume a lot more energy at 100 lumens/watt than you will at 140 lumens per watt. TheLightingCenter products are in the higher lumens per watt configurations. Look for the products efficacy listed in their detail specifications, or divide the total number of lumens produced by the total watts consumed to determine efficacy.

* Look at the number of LEDs the fixture is using to produce the lumens. A fixture with fewer LEDs is typically driving the LEDs harder, which means life expectancy will probably be shorter. More LEDs driven less hard is a better combination of efficient and

2. Paybacks can be relatively short


This is dependent on the 1+1+1 rule with LED payback – Hours of Use + Cost of Electricity + Rebates. 

Rebates may be the least important of the three, and high hours of use and high cost of electricity will dwarf the benefits of the rebate. Everyone likes a rebate, but we have created many proposals for our customers where payback was under 1 year even without rebates. 

Contact us and we can help walk you through the math.

3. Reduced Maintenance Costs


The common problem with traditional technologies like HID (Metal Halide, HPS) and Fluorescent technology is they use ballasts with relatively short life spans. LEDs use drivers that converts AC to DC power. These drivers typically have a long life (good design is required that allows the drivers to run cool). It is not uncommon to expect a lifespan of 50,000 + hours for the driver and even longer for the LEDs. 

In LED technology, the driver is the weakest link, so be wary of claims of products that will last 200,000 hours because there is an extremely high probability the driver wont last that long. Unless you can replace the driver in a 200,000 hour rated product, the product is only valuable as a marketing tool for the seller and not for you.

The two main reasons we receive calls from our customers:

  1. reduce energy consumption / save money
  2. reduce high bay lighting maintenance costs.

By switching to LED solutions, you reduce the amount of maintenance time required on your new lighting system. And when it comes to  warehouse lighting, the lights are not easily accessible.

4. Increased Light Quality with Bright Warehouse Lighting

One of the specifications you need to pay attention to is CRI (color rendering index). This is essentially the quality of light that the fixture is producing. It is a scale between 0 and 100. And a general rule is that you need less quantity of light if you have better quality. LED has high CRI making the quality better than most traditional light sources. But CRI alone is not the only factor. Some traditional sources, like fluorescent also may have a high CRI. But because these technologies are AC powered, they “flicker”, causing eye strain and headaches. LED drivers convert AC to DC, which means no flicker. So higher quality lighting with no flicker makes for a better production

However, one word of caution. Extremely high CRI is not required in traditional warehouse / factory environments. It is great for retail environments where true color representation is important. We would not recommend a high CRI solution for an outdoor industrial application. It is not worth the extra cost to purchase high CRI LEDs.

Planning the Convertion to LED Warehouse Lighting

1.   Plan the Lighting Layout Well

If your warehouse is old and the lighting fixtures were installed many years ago, the lighting may no longer be adequate. For example, some luminaries may be on top of shelves and be of no use. A poor lighting layout wastes energy significantly decreases illuminance levels
(because the light is delivered to the wrong places), and makes servicing lights an expensive, time-consuming process.

If you own or manage a warehouse, be sure to let your electrician know what you need from the lighting so they can create the perfect layout. There are different light distribution types but only 2 are ideal for warehouses. The electrician will choose the best light distribution type for your warehouse based on the layout of the building.




2.   Optics Are Important

Modern warehouses and distribution centers usually have narrow aisles and higher ceilings in order to make the most revenue per square foot. Warehouse owners and operators can store and sell more products if they store them in areas that occupy less space.

This trend has given LED manufacturers the opportunity to create better lighting products for storage businesses. Old lighting systems usually distribute light to the sides and downwards. They have “wide” beam angles and distribute a lot of light in areas where it isn’t needed.

New-generation LEDs incorporate optics for the most efficient performance. Optics focus, mix, and shape the light produced by the LEDs, controlling the illumination pattern. They help LED fixtures to deliver “narrow” beam angles.

If you’ve decided that LEDs with optics are the best for your warehouse, get those that maximize light output with optics and direct the light to the areas that need it most.


3.   Avoid Glare At All Costs

When it comes to LED lighting, there’s one thing people mostly complain about: glare. LED lights do not generate light like conventional lights and the intensity of each chip can make glare a serious issue, especially if warehouse workers have to look at the lights when packing
products or accessing the higher aisles.

This is why it is so important to balance luminaire efficacy and visual comfort. LED luminaries for high bay fixtures may have excellent luminous efficacy and badly designed optics. Good luminaries may sacrifice luminous efficacy in order to offer visual comfort.



4.   Add Lighting Controls

A good lighting design is comprised of lighting controls as they ensure that lights only operate when they need to and significantly change the way electricity is consumed. If you combine LEDs for high bay fixtures with lighting controls, the energy consumption of your distribution center or warehouse will considerably go down.

You can use occupancy sensors, motion sensors, or localized presence detectors to lower energy usage when no work is being conducted in specific areas. If the building has roof lights, you can make the most of daylight harvesting.
