What is A High Bay Light Fixture?
For starters let us define what a high bay light is… A high bay light is, as its name declares, a powerful source of light generally used to illuminate larger areas with higher ceilings above 20ft high. High bay lights are usually found in commercial buildings, industrial facilities, large gymnasiums, indoor sports fields, large community center halls, store and shopping malls, working shops, large garages, theaters, churches and a long list of other huge buildings.
Nowadays most high bay lights are comprised of LED drivers and LED panels or are currently in the process of being upgraded to LED high bay lights. LED is the shortened term for light-emitting diode, which is today’s most energy efficient and rapidly developed lighting technology. Quality LED panels are more durable and offer the best lighting quality in the market, especially if compared against traditional older types of lighting.
LED High Bay Lights can be found in many different types and shapes, the most common and popular types are the round shaped UFO high bay lights and the rectangular or linear LED high bay lights. As some good examples we can share with you… we have Hyperlite’s Hero Series UFO High Bay Lights and Will Series High Bay Lights. UFO high bay lights are better recommended for open areas whereas linear high bay lights are more suitable for busy areas full of shelves and aisles.
