LED Lighting Supply / Commercial Lighting

Commercial Lighting

Commercial Lighting includes both indoor and outdoor LED fixtures. High Bay LED Lights and LED Low Bay Lighting replace metal halide and fluorescent fixtures inside warehouses using LED Warehouse Lighting, gymnasiums and large open indoor spaces. We offer commercial outdoor lighting for Parking Lots. LED Wall Packs and LED Flood Lights brighten any outdoor commercial area providing energy saving and virtually maintenance free lighting.

Frequently Asked Questions

We asked our new and existing customers the questions they wish they had answered before making their first commercial LED lighting purchase. If you cannot find the answers you are looking for, please call (888) 423-3191 and a dedicated lighting expert will help you find the right solution and get the right lighting.

General

What Is Commercial Lighting?

LED Commercial lighting are fixtures that are installed at a commercial location or business. There is some crossover between these and Industrial LED Lighting in that some fixtures, like High Bay LED Lights, Low Bays, LED Parking Lot Lights, Security Lights and Flood lights, can serve both applications.

Other institutions, like schools, colleges, ball fields, are also considered commercial lighting applications. Homeowners who would be interested might have a pole barn, workshop, large garage, horse barns or horse arena they want lit up.

What Is Commercial Grade Lighting?

Commercial grade lighting is a grade of lights that do not require the ruggedness and power of an industrial requirement. These are fixtures that would be too powerful and too bright for a typical homeowner to use, other than possibly in large out-buildings, pole barns or shops.

What Should the Average Foot Candle be for LED Light Fixtures?

Always start by determining how bright you want the area to be. That is measured in the foot candles floor that you want or by telling us what you will be using the space for. We can then recommend the foot candle levels you would require to provide the proper illumination.

Next, the specific fixture that will be used determines the foot candle level that you will get. These two things combined with the actual size of your area can help us determine the right fixture and foot candles on the ground based on a lighting design plan. We can run that lighting plan to meet your requirements.

BEFORE YOU BUY

How Much / Cost Is LED Light Fixtures Per Square Foot?

We would first develop a lighting plan that meets your lighting needs, and from there, we can calculate the cost of the fixtures and divide that into the square footage of the space or outdoor area. It stands to reason that a space that is brighter of two spaces will cost more.

Do You Offer Bulk or Contractor Discounts on LED Lights?

Yes we do. Contact us and we will work to recommend the right fixture and will provide a competitive price quote.

What Voltage Does LED Lights Have?

There are three ranges of voltages that are available for LED lights. Actual voltages vary from fixture to fixture, but you typically find 100V-277V as the primary range, and either 277V-480V or 347V-480V as the high voltage range. These ranges coincide with the multi-tap drivers we supply that automatically adapt to the input voltage detected on the line.

There is no setting up or dial in process you need to do – the drivers will automatically adjust to your incoming voltage. When selecting a fixture, it is important to know what your current voltage input is.

Are LED  Fixtures 120V?

They can be if that is the voltage in your space. If you purchase a LED light with a 100-277V driver, then it is equipped to handle 120V automatically.

If I Could Supply 120V or 277V to My LED Lighting Fixtures, Which Is Better?

First, 120V is safer. So, if your main concern is safety, choose 120V.

However, the higher voltage you can use, the less amp draw each fixture uses. And on a panel circuit, that can be a concern. You can install more fixtures of the same type on one circuit at 277V than you can at 120V. But, if you can choose, 277VAC provides more advantages.

Remember, most of our standard LED Drivers are 100-277V auto switching. They will adapt to any voltage within that range automatically. We have many options for high voltage applications as well.

FIXTURES AND FITTINGS

Why Pick LED Lighting over Traditional Metal Halide and Fluorescent Lighting Systems?

Here are several reasons why LED Light Fixtures outperform:

LED lights are efficient and use 50% to 75% less energy than metal halide and fluorescent lights. Adding lighting controls such as photocells and motion sensors that dim the lights or turn them off completely only adds to the savings.

LED Lights last a very long time, and L70 depreciation is measure in 50,000+ hours. So your maintenance costs will drop dramatically and you will get years of bright, high quality, trouble free lighting.

LEDs are not affected by turning them on and off. It will not decrease their lifespan.

LEDs are instant on, instant off. So no need for long warm up times like Metal Halide.

You can dim LED Lights easily.

LED Lighting provide bright, high quality lighting. It will easily enhance your space.

You have a choice of color temperatures with LED Lighting. Most common ranges are 3000K, 4000K and 5000K.

You can easily replace your existing lighting and maintain or increase the brightness in the building.

What Are the Best Applications for Commercial Indoor Lighting?

There are so many applications for lighting, but by far, the most common applications we see are:

Office Spaces
LED Warehouse Lighting
LED Shop Lights
High Bay Lights
Gymnasiums
Pole Barns
Recessed Lights

What are the most Common Applications for Commercial LED Outdoor Lighting?

LED Parking Lot Lights
LED Wall Pack Lights and Security Lighting
Tennis Courts
LED Sports Lighting

Parking Garage After Conversion To Led

How Do I Add a Dimmer Switch to Commercial Lighting?

Most of our LED lights are dimmable, but the dimming system is quite different from the dimming system used in households.

In commercial lighting, there is typically a 0-10V or 1-10V step dimming system that uses a specific isolated dimmer control that is not part of the on-off switch. To support this, you will require 2 low voltage wires run from the switch and daisy chained to each fixture that will be installed on the switch. The fixture must be equipped with a dimmable driver in order to be dimmed.

However, practical applications of dimmable lighting includes, for example, a high bay or low bay fixtures in a warehouse with an attached motion sensor. That motion sensor is smart enough to tell the high bay to dim when the work areas are vacant. It sends a signal to the dimmable driver to dim. No external switch or extra wiring is required in these installations. When motion is detected, the fixtures quickly switch to full power and illuminate the area.

INSTALLATION

How Do You Install LED Light Fixtures?

LED lighting fixtures are simple and easy to install for any qualified electrician. They can replace 1-for-1 your existing lighting. They include all the same mounting you are accustomed to and the same wiring that allows you to easily connect to your existing conjunction boxes or lighting infrastructure.

How Is LED Lighting Wired?

With LED lighting, you are only dealing with 3 wires – line, neutral and ground. This wiring is simple and easy to deal with. However, it’s always best to hire a licensed electrician.

What Gauge Wire to Use for LED Lighting?

Most of our fixtures, like high bays, come with a whip cord. For replacing existing commercial lighting, the wire in place is more often than not more than adequate to use in connection with the new LED lights we provide.
