General lighting in rooms or buildings which have high ceilings is usually provided by LED high bay light fixtures. They can be found in many different places such as gyms, garages, storage facilities and warehouses. It has been discovered that various types of LED high bay light fixtures can have a definite impact on the functionality of an area and on its appearance. Before making a choice you have to consider the kind of lighting a building needs as well as the kind of budge it has for maintenance and operation when taking into consideration the selection of LED high light fixtures.
It is very important to take into consideration the kind of design each fixture has. LED high bay lighting fixtures usually come in linear or pendant forms. The difference is that pendants take up more space and they need a ceiling which is higher in height than the linear fixtures do because they are only a few inches thick. So be sure you know exactly the kind of LED high bay light fixture which you require.
Other things which you should take into mind are that there are some LED high bay light fixtures which can be pretty heavy and will need extra support. Therefore you should make a comparison between your present ceiling configuration and the installation requirements for each light in order to decide which fixture would work best. Things that you should know are that traditional high bay fixtures make use of high-intensity discharge (HID) technology while modern fixtures use fluorescent bulbs. You must be sure that there is no problem with the warm-up factor at your place of work because when an HID light gets switched on it will take around 10 minutes for it to warm up and provide light.
When it comes to lighting power HID lights have the possibility to provide more light over a greater distance and can be the better choice for rooms which have high ceilings. So all you have to do is to select the design which best suits your workplace. LED high bay lights can be protected by a wire cage, a lens or they can be left unprotected. However keep in mind that protected lights are kept safer from damage especially in work areas where equipment might come close to them. On the other hand unprotected lights do have a higher degree of lighting and can be more affordable so they should be the choice when no equipment or no one can get near them.
