LED High Bay

  • Save on electricity costs – Every metal halide fixture you have can cost you an extra $65 to $100 a year in electricity costs. Switch to LED and start saving every month. LED fixtures use about half as much energy and can pay for themselves in less than four years.
  • Cut maintenance costs – Don’t lose money and waste man hours replacing fixtures and renting lifts. LED fixtures can last up to 15 years or 100,000 hours. Metal halides only last about 20,000 hours or three years.
  • Don’t be caught in the dark – Standard high bay lights can take up to 15 minutes to fully light the room when turned on. This wait can slow down productivity and cause safety issues. This is not an issue with LED high bay fixtures. You will save energy just by being able to turn the lights on and off more frequently, without having to worry about the warm up period. LED’s can also be used with occupancy sensors.
  • Better lighting performance. Provide higher quality light output, colour rendering and higher maintained light levels.
