The Best LED Warehouse Lighting

There is no “one-size-fits-all” best warehouse light. But there is a lighting solution that should be the best choice for your space – whether you need indoor or outdoor lighting.

Understanding your warehouse’s purpose goes a long way to narrowing down the most efficient light fixture option. We will ask a few simple questions and might create a free lighting plan.

A warehouse lighting company such as LED Lighting Supply can offer you the best LED warehouse lights for your business. Our LED Lights will provide bright light output and balanced, even lighting with LED energy efficiency savings on your lighting bill.

Why are LEDs Better than Metal Halide Lights for a Warehouse?

Here are a few reasons why LED Lighting is more suitable for warehouses than HID Lighting:

  • Reduce energy consumption by 50-90%.
  • Dramatically reduce maintenance costs with 10+ years of maintenance-free lighting.
  • LEDs work well with motion sensors – so lights are only at full power when needed.
  • Instant on – instant off - no waiting for lights to achieve full power.
  • No annoying humming of ballasts.

Why are LEDs Better than Fluorescent Lighting for a Warehouse?

Many of the same benefits listed above apply here. Cost savings and maintenance savings are large. But the benefits of fluorescent tubes include:

  • No humming ballasts, and no flickering/strobing tubes.
  • No expensive recycling costs with LED.
  • Environmentally Friendly. They do not contain mercury.
  • Works perfectly with motion sensors with no lumen degradation.

What is the Life Expectancy for Warehouse LEDs?

Each bulb’s lifespan is different, but many of our LED warehouse lights will last 10 or more years while operating 12 hours a day, 365 days a year. Adding motion sensors will also help increase the lifespan of the fixture.

The Different Types of LED Warehouse Fixtures

The first decision you need to make is based on your mounting height.

The second decision is based on the style of the fixture. You can choose UFO / Round or Linear / Panel styles for Warehouses. Here’s a good way to think about it: UFO High Bay Lights replace HID / Metal Halide Lights and linear panels are a good choice to replace fluorescent lights.

That doesn’t mean you can’t replace fluorescent lights with UFO LED High Bays – you can. We can help you make the best choice.

How Much Light Do You Need for a Warehouse?

This depends on how the warehouse is used. Warehouses used primarily for storage need less light. A warehouse used for manufacturing needs more.

You measure High Bay LED light levels in terms of foot candles on the ground. Foot candles are a result of the lumen output a fixture has and watts produce the lumen output. The more lumens per watt, the better your energy savings will be. And energy savings will mean lower utility bills.

At the lower end, you should try to hit a target of 20 to 30-foot candles. Depending on what your needs are, you can always increase that. The goal of many of our warehouse lighting plans is to achieve proper lighting with an average of 30 to 40-foot candles and balanced light distribution.

What are the Best Selling LED Warehouse High Bays?

We have seen 3 lights stand out among the rest and requested more often.

  1. Our 160-watt color-changing UFO LED High Bay Light is the most popular high bay to replace 400-watt Metal-Halide if you’re looking for a round fixture.
  2. For those who like linear panels, our 155-watt LED Linear High Bay is a popular choice. This panel replaces a 400-watt HID or a 6-tube 54-watt HO fluorescent fixture.
  3. For those looking to replace a 1000-watt Metal Halide, our 240-watt High-Efficiency UFO is a popular high bay option.

What to Do if Areas in the Warehouse are Unoccupied?

The best solution is to add a motion sensor. They turn the high bay light fixtures to full power when motion is detected. They turn off / dim the lights when the area is void of activity or movement reducing energy consumption. You can decide on the best dimming strategy as well. By using motion sensor solutions, you can save on electrical bills, beef up your security, and reduce overhead costs.

How Many Lumens are Best for a Warehouse?

Lumens are a function of the amount of light each fixture produces. Deciding based on lumens or watts is not a good approach.

Always start by thinking of foot candles needed. This will determine how well-lit your warehouse will be. Here are some simple guidelines to start with.

Replace Metal Halides and High-Pressure Sodium with LED High Bay Lights:

  • 250 Watts HID: 10,000 to 15,000 LED lumens
  • 400 Watts HID: 15,000 to 25,000 LED lumens
  • 1000 Watts HID: 40,000 to 60,000 LED lumens

Replace F54 T5 HO Fluorescent Tubes:

  • 4 tube F54/T5/HO: 10,000 to 15,000 LED lumens
  • 6 tube F54/T5/HO: 15,000 to 25,000 LED lumens
  • 8 tube F54/T5/HO: 24,000 to 40,000 LED lumens

* Actual lumens needed will be dependent on mounting height and required light level.

We made it easy for you to find the perfect light.

Commercial / Industrial Rated Warehouse Fixtures

Yes, they are. Most of what we sell is robust commercial lighting and warehouse industrial lighting. Many of our industrial warehouse fixtures have high impact ratings (IK01 to IK10 ratings). Water ingress IP ratings (IP65 or greater) that is a measurement of how well a fixture is protected from dust, moisture, and water.

Best Way to Avoid Shadows in a Warehouse

Shadowing is caused when the light levels in between lights dip significantly so that it’s noticeable to the eye. This is caused by having the lights installed too far apart or the optic on the light being too tight and therefore does not light up a large enough space under the light.

A lighting plan will determine if the light chosen will cause shadows. You can avoid shadowing by creating a lighting layout and choosing the light that will give you the best combination of foot candles and light balance. Our team helps design high bay lighting plans and provides a range of options suitable for different types of warehouses.

Costs to Convert Warehouse Lighting to LED

There are two costs associated with converting your fixtures to LED Warehouse Lighting. They are:

  • the cost of the new lights
  • the cost of installation

The cost of the fixtures is something we can help with. As well, we can help with rebates with your local utility if they offer rebates. Rebates on LED Lights for Warehouse Facilities often include the combined cost of fixtures and installation.

The Brightest Warehouse Lights

  • The brightest UFO light is 600 Watts producing 96,000 lumens.
  • The brightest panel-style fixture we offer is 500 Watts producing 68000 lumens.

Both these warehouse industrial lighting options are for a facility/building with high ceilings over 40 feet in height.

Adjust Lighting and Light Levels in a Warehouse

  • Pre-purchase, the best way is to create a lighting plan. It’s the best single step you can take to get the lighting right.
  • Post-purchase, dimming the lights to raise or lower the light levels.

How Many LED Warehouse Lights Do You Need?

This question is hard to answer. Only because there are no two warehouses that are the same. There is a path that almost guarantees finding the best High Bay Lights for your warehouse. Here are the steps to finding the best light:

1. Start with determining how much light you need or want in your warehouse. You’ll want to have a light measurement of lux, lumens per square foot, or foot candles.

2. Ask us to create a lighting plan. If it’s a new warehouse, give us the CAD or scaled layout and your desired light levels (or we can recommend them).

If it’s an existing warehouse, provide us with a layout or dimensions. If there are existing light locations, tell us where they are.
We will use different types of lights to achieve the results needed. The lighting plan will show you how bright the light levels are, the light balance, and the number of fixtures used to produce the light. It will also tell you what type of fixture we used.

This is the best formula for creating a successful outcome and determining how many lights you need. We can help you find the best-LED warehouse high bays based on your requirements. In the end, using LED Lights in your warehouse should provide bright illumination, even light distribution, and significant energy savings over traditional lighting options.

Do Linear Fixtures Give Better Light Coverage than UFO Fixtures in a Warehouse?

Yes – there is a slight advantage due to the design of the fixture. Groupings of LEDs in UFO fixtures are typically close together. Strips of LEDs are installed in linear fixtures and tend to have a wider spacing arrangement.

However, this advantage becomes less clear at higher mounting heights. In fact, in high-ceiling warehouses, UFOs have the advantage. Installed narrow beam optics can better focus the light on the floor where it’s needed.

What is Distribution Center Lighting?

There isn’t anything special about a distribution center, other than it’s a large warehouse space with a lot of activity processing orders. What makes Distribution Center Lighting different from a large warehouse space is the number of foot-candles, or light levels, needed in areas where package processing is done.

We can easily create a Distribution Center Lighting Plan to meet even the most demanding needs. Our warehouse lighting is powerful enough that we can even replace 2000-watt Metal Halides with our fixtures 1 for 1.

The Best Color Temperatures for Indoor Warehouse Areas

We recommend either 4000K or 5000K as the optimal color temperature to light up large warehouse spaces. However, if you are not sure, you should select a color-adjustable light that allows you to select the color temperature after you install it.

Converting Warehouses to LED

Our team has upgraded thousands of warehouse facilities over the last several years with LED lights. We have used both UFO and Linear Lighting fixtures, and have created free lighting plans for our customers and their warehouse facilities.

Warehouse LED Conversion

Emergency Backup (EMBs)

These are options on many of our warehouse fixtures. We have supplied them with both UFO and panel-style LED fixtures we sell. Call us to find out the best solution if you need an EMB. We find that emergency backup is only needed on a small number of the fixtures to provide egress to the exits.

An EMB will provide safety light for up to 90 minutes.

Voltage Options for Warehouse LED Lights

There are two basic voltage options for LED lighting solutions for warehouses: standard and high voltage.

The standard voltage which is available on all our lights is between 100V and 277V. These are self-adjusting LED drivers, so they automatically recognize the incoming voltage and switch automatically.

High Voltage, available on some of our warehouse LED light fixtures, is offered in 2 distinct ranges. They also automatically switch as the standard voltage drivers do.

  • 347V-480V
  • 277V-480V

Warehouse Lights with Motion Sensors

Some have them built in, others are optionable that you can buy when you order. As a LED warehouse lighting supplier, we offer both options. Adding a motion sensor is easy. When you use the optional remote lighting control, you can easily configure the light and the motion sensor. You only need one remote control to set up all your lights that have motion sensors.

LED Warehouse Lights Wiring and Mounting Options

There are several options.

  • For UFO lights, we offer eye hooks, pendants, and in some cases ceiling mounts.
  • For panel-style lights, we offer wire/chain and pendant mounts on some lights.

All our UFO Lights use a wire/whipcord so your electrician can wire them into a junction box. You can add a plug to the service end of the whip if your facility uses plugs instead of junction boxes.

For Linear LED High Bay Lights, your installer will wire into the junction box on the fixture.

How Far Apart Should You Mount LED Lights in a Warehouse?

This depends on the mounting height of the fixtures. The lower the height, the closer the fixtures need to be to each other. The higher the fixture, the further apart they can be.

The goal is to avoid shadows between fixtures and hot spots (too much light) under a fixture.
