At one point in time, just a few decades ago, you would find traditional incandescent bulbs in circular fixtures hanging from high ceilings. There was little choice for warehouses, storage spaces, and other work areas. This method worked reasonably well, though building owners and maintenance personnel generally had to install numerous fixtures to adequately illuminate the open space.
Now, in the 21st century, you can use 200w LED high bay fixtures in those same locations and have consistent light while saving a lot of money on utility costs. If you want to continue lighting your space with fixtures similar to those classic fluorescent lights some warehouses and commercial areas used, you only need to ask your lighting specialist about linear LED lighting.
You may want to ask about 200w LED high bay fixtures that continue the circular design of those old incandescent lamps. But, you benefit from better quality illumination and save a lot of money, thanks to the highly efficient LED technology.
Commonly called “UFO” fixtures because of the circular shape and the resemblance to “flying saucers” these lights are a great option for every industrial and commercial space. They’ll work well with new construction design or for the necessary lighting upgrade you have planned. Consider the original UFO high bay style or the next generation, which takes the idea to another level.
Of course, you don’t want to forget about the linear design, as mentioned, which resemble the classic fluorescent fixture. If you want to maintain traditional appearance, you might go with the circular 200w LED high bay design. Choose any of the three general styles and you’ll also have the opportunity to work with a lighting expert to choose the wattage you need for proper lighting and energy use.
LED and UFO Taking Over?
Consider for a moment the fact that the UFO/circular design is taking over in terms of commercial and industrial lighting. There are a few excellent reasons for this change. One has to do with the remarkable energy efficiency of light-emitting diode (LED) technology. These fixtures produce much less heat than older bulbs, to the point that you will use 60%, 70%, even 80% less energy to produce the same amount of light.
The reason is simple: With 200w LED high bay lighting less electrical energy is lost to heat. The small amount produced with LED technology is easily handled by the excellent design of the fixtures. You will also save on maintenance costs and the cost of replacement bulbs, as LED lights will generally give you thousands of hours of use (even up to 100,000 hours)!!
Many property owners and managers are selecting products like the second-generation 200w LED high bay fixtures for their retail, commercial and institutional locations. The lumen output and outstanding color rendition make them the right choice for factories, warehouses, and gymnasiums.
Save money in the long run, while providing excellent illumination. You’ll enjoy the standard five-year warranty (with 10-year option), yet another reason to choose the latest LED lighting.
