General Information About LED Supermarket Lights

What Types of Lights Are Typically Used in a Supermarket?

The most used types of lights are High Bay LED Lights, either round-style UFO LED Lights or LED Panels for Grid Ceilings, and linear strip fixtures.

Is It Best to Use Fluorescent or LED Lights in a Supermarket?

There are several reasons why LEDs provide a better shopping experience compared to fluorescents. The lights do not flicker and hum. They reduce energy consumption by at least 50% or more. They dramatically reduce light maintenance costs. And, they have great light quality specs, making the products on the shelves look good.

Should You Have Emergency Lighting in a Grocery Store?

You should consider adding emergency lighting if you don’t have it already. It provides enough light so your customers can find their way out of the store if the power fails.

What Type of Lights Work Best for Walk-in Coolers?

Use vapor-type linear fixtures. They’re protected from cooler environments and can withstand washdowns.

What Are Common Supermarket Lighting Standards to Follow?

Light levels can vary in a store, depending on the prominence of the location. Prominent locations could see as many as 100-foot candles. Less prominent but still important locations could see between 50 to 70-foot candles. And for less prominent areas, shoot for 30-50 foot candles. Besides light levels, and high CRI, we recommend 80 or above.

Is It Better to Use a UFO or Linear Fixture in a Supermarket?

We like the look and performance of UFO LED Lights. Use acrylic lenses to further reduce glare and increase up-lighting on the ceiling. We can also see 8-foot strip lights and linear fixtures being used. The height of the mounting can also impact the type of fixture used. In the end, it all comes down to your preferences.

Do You Offer Fixtures Made for Use in a Freezer or Cooler?

We have many lights. Linear-style vapor-proof fixtures work well inside coolers.

Will Your LED Supermarket Lights Expire Faster in a Freezer?

No, in fact, LEDs love the cold. So, there’s a good chance they will last longer.

Do Your LED Supermarket Lights Qualify for Rebate Incentives?

They do. Please check with your local utility. Every utility offers different types of rebates.

Can I Retrofit Existing Fixtures or Do I Need to Buy All New Lights?

We offer both retrofit and new fixture options, and we can help you decide which ones are best.

What Color Temperature Is Best for a Supermarket?

We would suggest 4000K as a good benchmark for interior supermarket lighting.

What Type of LED Supermarket Lights Work Best in Aisles?

We are seeing a lot more high bay lights with acrylic lenses used inside shopping centers. The acrylic lenses provide a little bit of up-light. You can consider linear high bay and low bay lights as well.
