LED High Bay Lighting Fixtures and Low Bay Fixtures

Linear LED high bay and low bay fixtures are available in a variety of light distributions including medium beam fixtures and wide light distribution designs. Narrow and medium distribution linear LED high bay lights have a Type 1 or Type 5 light distribution. These distribution types are ideal for aisles or higher ceilings. Placing linear LED high bay light fixtures parallel to aisles is approximately 50 percent more efficient than a perpendicular alignment and helps decrease eye strain. This layout is also easier to control with motion sensors. Wide distribution linear LED high bay fixtures give off a broader light distribution and are better suited for open layouts to provide a uniform light for commercial buildings and areas. Linear LED high bay lights with a medium light distribution are somewhere in between. The light distribution is round rather than linear, but the beam is more concentrated, casting very little of the light outside of a 0-270 degree zone.

Round LED High Bays and Low Bays

Round LED high bay light engines designed for junction/pendant mount offer up to 100,000 life hours with 18,000-24,000 initial lumens. Dimmable LED high bay fixtures are not affected by frequent on-off cycles and won't lose lifespan when used with motion sensors. Common applications for round LED high bay lights include retail stores, warehouses, gyms, industrial areas, and commercial buildings. 80 CRI is superior color rendering compared to traditional lighting. Shop for natural white 4000K and sunlight equivalent 5000K color temperatures.

Motion Sensor LED High Bay Fixtures

Some of our LED high bay lighting fixtures include field installable motion and daylight sensors. Daylight harvesting sensors are one of the most advanced technologies used in sustainable lighting. The fixtures adjust light output based on the amount of natural light that is available in a space at any given time. The sensor takes seconds to screw into the receptacle and seamlessly integrates into the luminaire, giving you reliable control without any disruption to the aesthetics of your lighting. The Passive Infrared Sensor (PIR) and daylight settings give you the ability to dramatically reduce your energy consumption and lower your utility bills.

NSF/ANSI-2 LED High Bay Lights

Lower energy and maintenance costs by replacing existing metal halide round high bays with more efficient and longer lasting food service rated UFO LED high bay lighting. These UFO LED high bay fixtures are NSF/ANSI-2 certified, meaning they are approved for use in areas where food is handled and prepared. While these UFO high bay lights can be used in places like the usual places like warehouses and manufacturing facilities, their NSF/ANSI 2 food service rating allows for use in additional areas like commercial kitchens, bakeries, food processing plants, and other similar locations.

Mounting Height for LED Linear High Bays and Low Bays

The mounting height is how high the light source is from the floor, meaning the distance from floor to fixture instead of floor to ceiling. Some LED linear high bay light fixtures are designed for chain mounting and require a minimum suspension distance from the ceiling while other linear high bays can be surface mounted. It's possible for surface mounted LED linear high bay light fixtures to require a minimum distance of recessed space between ceiling and fixture for ventilation.

LED Replacement High and Low Bays

When selecting a linear LED high bay light, make sure to compare the Lumen output of your current fixture to the linear high bay you are considering. This is a better indication for which linear LED high bay fixture is right for you instead of just the wattage equivalent. Also, be sure to check the color temperature before making a decision. A lower number Kelvin means the light is warmer, closer to incandescents, which is not be the best choice for a commercial space. A higher number Kelvin means the light is cooler, closer to blue. Color temperatures of 4000 Kelvin and higher are better suited for commercial applications because this type of light helps increase productivity and decrease eyestrain. Some LED linear high bay lights can be dimmed to 10% when paired with a compatible 0-10 Volt dimmer.
