How Do I Select Which Vapor Proof LED Lights To Use?

Here’s a general rule for replacing old Metal Halide / Fluorescent fixtures:

150 Watts HID – choose a LED fixture producing 5,000 to 10,000 lumens.
250 Watts HID – choose a LED fixture producing 10,000 to 15,000 lumens.
400 Watts HID – choose a LED fixture producing 15,000 to 30,000 lumens.

You can determine the specific output by understanding the following factors:

  1. What is the current wattage of your existing fixtures?
  2. How many fixtures are there? Or is this a new install?
  3. How high are the fixtures mounted?
  4. What is the space used for? (to help determine the amount of light required)

Choose a style:

  1. Single standalone vapor tight light fixtures: these linear fixtures replace single-unit fluorescent fixtures
  2. Linkable vapor proof LED fixtures: single fixtures that can link together to create one single long string of lights

You should also consider:

Voltage: 120V or 100-277V
Mounting: Conduit, Ceiling Mount or Wire / Cable suspension
Motion Sensor: Dim the lights when the area is void of movement
Color Temperature: 4000K or 5000K
Configurable: wattage / color changeable or static color / wattage

What Are Vapor Proof LED Light Fixtures?

Vapor-proof led fixtures is a sealed lighting system. It’s designed for installation in a corrosive or damp/wet non-explosive environment. They’re used in locations where there’s a risk of water vapor, steam, or other types of (harmful/corrosive) vapor entering the lighting fixture. This moisture and vapor would degrade the lighting components of the fixture – and possibly shorten the lifespan of the fixture.

Are Vapor Tight Lights Explosion Proof Rated?

No. A vapor-tight design keeps non-explosive gases and dust from entering the fixture. This might cause premature failure of the fixture. It is not designed to be an explosion-proof fixture.

Never use vapor proof light fixtures to replace explosion rated fixtures.



How Many Vapor-Proof Lights Do I Need?

Every application and space is different. We recommend you start by creating a lighting plan.

Tell us how many foot candles you need.
The purpose of the space
The size of the space, and the ceiling height.

From there, we can create a lighting plan. This plan will show you

what’s the best light to use
how many lights you need
where they’re located in your space
the distance between fixtures

The lighting plan will show you the average foot candles. It will also calculate how balanced / even the light is (represented as average/min ratio).

Here are some general quick guidelines that will help you understand what you might need.  Please note, the higher the ceiling, the more powerful light you will need. Or if the area is void of natural light, with non-reflective walls, you might need to add more lights or more powerful lights.

8-12 feet: 50-100 watts LED: 10,000-15,000 lumens
12-20 feet: 100-150 watts LED: 15,000-22,500 lumens

Recommended fixture spacing for almost all LED fixtures is as follows. Please note that these are only general guidelines.

8 feet ceiling height: 8-10 feet apart
10 feet ceiling height: 10-12 feet apart
15 feet ceiling height: 15-18 feet apart
