How many Low Bay Lights do you need?
Maybe you need a low bay commercial lighting plan?
If you are just replacing fixture with fixture, a lighting plan will help you select the right fixture. If you are creating a new area or building that doesn't have lighting yet, a lighting plan will lay out the light locations and show you how bright the lighting will be.
If you know how bright you want the space to be, we can pick the right low bay ceiling light fixture to meet your needs and requirements.
When we do low bay lighting plans, we use specialized lighting software that allows us to model your space, add lights, place them in your digital space, and calculate the brightness and how even the light will be.
Best of all. We offer FREE, no obligation, low bay lighting plans for our commercial and industrial customers. And when you're ready to purchase, ask one of our LED Sales Pros about how you can get Free Shipping!
Uses of the Low Bay Lights
The term bay is commonly used for the huge open areas that are sealed with gigantic doors like warehouses, car washes, hangar, automotive service areas, etc. The low bay lights can be seen in almost all such areas but there are many more of them. Essentially, these lights can be used in any big area that has a ceiling height of around 20 feet.
This makes them good for use in other areas like grocery shops, retail stores, various workshops, machine shops, fitness centers, concourses, etc., basically any room with a 12-20 feet high ceiling.
Low Bay Lights for Common Usages
These are the same industrial and commercial high bay lights applications that can be done with low bay lights too. The low bay lights can also serve general lighting purposes for huge open areas that need even and consistent luminescence. A suitable candidate for these purposes would be the round UFO LED low bay lights. These lights generate great light outputs that are similar to a 250W metal halide light but with about 35-40% lower operating costs.
Low bay Shop lights can serve as the ideal alternative to the 8ft fluorescent shop fixtures for general uses. This is because they have lower energy consumption, no maintenance needs, and the ability to support linear fixture connections. They allow you to build continuously connected end to end lights. Thus, they have aesthetic benefits too and not just practical ones.
Low Bay Lights for Damp Areas
Dampness is one of the major challenges to the lighting systems that can cause significant damage. You are required to save your lights from any kind of moisture exposure whether it comes from occasional rain splashes or complete water submergence. LEDs can save all the hassle here!
Places with high moisture-exposure risk include sheds, barns, car washes, laundries, etc. and the lights here need protection from the washdown activities. We have LED low bays with 65 IP ratings that are perfect for such low bay areas as they are completely locked fixtures that remain safe from all external elements like dust, condensation, water jets, etc.
Lights for Warehouse Aisles
It is usually the high bay lights that are used for the very high ceiling warehouses but all warehouses don’t have the same settings. The areas of warehouses like aisles and shelves impact the overall lighting layout. This is because these areas promote unnecessary shadow formations and impact even light distribution by the fixtures.
All this can be dealt with with an effective lighting plan and suitable light fixtures. Linear low bays are good for low ceiling warehouses.
Different Low Bay Light Types
There are many low bay lighting options but they are categorized into three major types. You may find these low bay lights appearing very similar to the high bay lights. However, the major differentiating aspect lies in the ability of low bay lights to support flush mounting.
LED Low Bay UFO
These lights have the closest resemblance with the high bay lightings but differ in terms of the lumen levels. UFO low bay lights are strong, solid, and circular lights that keep target areas bright in any circumstance.
These lights are meant for suspension from the ceilings, thus, fit them in areas that have up to 15-20 feet high ceilings.
Low Bay Linear
These light fixtures appear slimmer and much closer to the fluorescent bulbs. The light they produce is sufficiently bright and perfect for the huge but lower height areas that need constant illumination.
These bays are the most popular low bay lights variety as well as allowing easy conversion of fluorescent lights into LEDs.
The appearance of these lights can be easily confused with the UFO low bay lights. At the same time, their functioning has a lot of similarities too. The major thing that differentiates the two lights is their method of installation. Surface mount low bays aren’t very slim in particular but they appear comparatively sleeker due to the flush mount.
These lights are good for low but huge areas.
Frequently Asked Questions: LED Low Bay Lights
What is a low bay light?
The term ‘Low Bay’ defines spaces with lower ceilings. LED Low Bay Lights are lower powered version of high bay lights. These are light fixtures that are meant to light up relatively larger areas and for that, they consume a higher amount of electricity. The reason these lights are used for larger areas is their high lumen production of over 8000 lumens. LED Low bays are usually installed at a mounting height in lower ceiling applications, between 12 to 20 feet above the floor. Since they are lower to the ground, less power is needed to light up the space than its twin high bay light. Using powerful LEDs in these spaces would result in too much luminescence and glare too.
Optics on low bays distribute the light evenly. By using optics to direct the light, lighting uniformity can be accomplished. LED Low Bay lights typically are equipped with wide beam angle optics of 90° to 120°.
What are the best low bay LED lights ?
This is a difficult question. Every customer has different needs and that determines the services that are ideal for them. Similarly, there can be no ‘one size fits all’ lighting system. The need to install a particular light fixture in a certain area may exist too. This depends on factors like mounting height, heat, distribution, and brightness levels. Hazard factor may also be there. The issue can be of choice too if a round LED low bay will be better or a linear LED high bay light.
How many low bay lights do I need?
A lighting plan will be the best help in all the cases. You can get a lighting plan for your low bay area that is a software representative lighting layout based on the building dimensions and other elements. We will then customize the layout with your lighting demands and options.
How do lighting plans help? They facilitate a beforehand visualization of LED lighting settings to let the customer decide better. We give you the best guidance and information as per your situation and test the plan with various lighting options too. We have the best-LED systems to help you save more. At the same time, we focus on the right lighting too.
What height is considered low bay?
Low Bays have low ceiling heights of up to 20 ft. Anything above that is called a High Bay area. Low Bay lights have low power settings compared to the High Bay lights.
What are the most common LED Low Bay Lights?
LED linear low bay led lights (panel lights)
UFO round led low bays with integrated led drivers
Lumen outputs for LED Low Bay Lighting fixtures range from 9,000 lumens up to around 21,000 lumens. Low Bay lights can replace both Metal Halide and Fluorescent low bay fixtures. UFO style are a good choice to replace Metal Halide. LED Linear low bays are a good replacement for Fluorescent fixtures.
What are the benefits of LED Low Bay Lights?
LED Low Bays are far superior to traditional style lighting source - such as Metal Halide and Fluorescent fixture.
LED Lights offer superior light quality (CRI), different color temperature options (3000K, 4000K, 5000K) and light efficiency (lumens per watt).
LED Low Bay lights will reduce monthly lighting costs by 50%+. Look for DLC Premium and DLC Listed LED Low Bays - they have the biggest rebates and will have low energy consumptions.
LED Low Bays will reduce your facility maintenance costs. You will no longer have to continually replace ballasts and bulbs.
LED Low Bay fixtures are available in various voltage options. These typically are 100V-277V, 347V-480V or 377V-480V.
