Consider these industrial led lighting factures for your facility

- May 07, 2019-

Initially, facilities managers can justify an LED retrofit on the basis of safety, improved worker performance, and cost savings. Next generation industrial LED lighting is available with ratings that meet or exceed National Electrical Code standards, OSHA regulations, and other North American guidelines for use in all types of hazardous locations in industrial and commercial facilities. LED manufacturers have developed explosion proof industrial LED lighting casings and fixtures with tempered glass lenses that can withstand all forms of harsh environments. Many of these fixtures include advanced thermal control features to prevent thermal buildup that can degrade the fixture and cause other safety problems.

Industrial LED lighting can also be tuned to emit brighter illumination with spectral characteristics that improve worker alertness and reduce fatigue that can lead to accidents and errors. Objective studies on manufacturing workplaces have verified that industrial LED lighting can improve worker productivity by up to 10% or more. LEDs can be tuned to emit light that closely replicates natural sunlight, which provides the best conditions for workers to distinguish fine detail and color contrasts in their work spaces.

Industrial LED lighting further provides immediate cost savings in terms of lower electrical utility bills and reduced maintenance and replacement costs. Most next generation LED lights will provide quality illumination for more than 50,000 hours of continuous operations, regardless of the environmental or situational stresses that they are exposed to.  In most cases, a facility’s initial investment in an industrial lighting retrofit is recovered in under two years from cost savings alone.

With all of these benefits in hand, a facilities manager will find countless options for different types of industrial LED lighting fixtures:

  • High-bay LED fixtures are ideal for warehouses and open manufacturing spaces that have high ceilings and require broad areas of consistent lighting;

  • Low-bay fixtures that give a facilities manager more control over distribution of the light than is otherwise available with high-bay fixtures;

  • Linear strip lighting that is ideal for aisles, corridors, and other long stretches of space;

  • LED Flood lights  for large outdoor areas and manufacturing production lines;

  • Specialized LED industrial lighting for enclosed spaces.
