LED High Bays: Replace up to 1000W Metal Halide or HPS

LED High Bays have come a long way over the past 5 years. Higher lumen/watt configurations and low cost of production has made these an extremely attractive and cost effective replacement to old style energy hungry high bays.

Our best advice is to select a high bay fixture based on lumen production and not watts. Lumens per watt is always changing in the LED world. We find that 17,000-23,000 lumens is a good range to replace 400W HID and 50,000-55,000 lumens does a great job replacing 1000W HID.

We have been in the high bay business so long, we know what works and what doesn't. We have a large selection of LED fixtures and options to help you convert over and create a safe, bright and energy saving environment.

How can we help you?

  1. We can run a photometric for you so you can 'see' how much light the LED Highbay will produce before every having to commit to purchasing or sampling. We just need to find out a bit more about your environment - dimensions (height, width, length, mounting height, reflectivity of building are are there tall stuctures like machines or shelving in the way)
  2. New or retrofit - we can do both
  3. Rebates - many of our lights are DLC listed and we can assist you in obtaining rebates for your project
  4. Controls - we can give you options on dimming, motion sensors and bi-level light levels.


Warehouse and Factories are switching to LED High Bays for 4 main reasons.

1. Reduce their utility bills.

LED High Bays uses significantly less energy than a Metal Halide or High Pressure Sodium High Bays. Typical energy reduction is 50% or greater. Yet, we typically see both an increase in light levels and increase in the quality of light. There are numerous reasons for this:

 * higher CRI or quality of light index, so the light produced is higher quality. The general rule, you need less quantity if you have higher quality

 * directionality of light: LEDs are directional, so if you design a fixture to shine all the light down, that is where it is going. If you think about a Metal Halide bulb, the light is going everywhere (omni-directional), so you have to rely on reflectors to get the light to the ground. Any time you have to use a reflector to gather and focus light, you lose effective lumens

 * longer lumen maintenance. Our customer have told us that many HID and fluorescent products start bright and dim quickly. So while the initial lumens of some of these products seem amazing, it does not appear that all of them have staying power.

2. Reduced maintenance costs.

Many high bay and fluorescent fixtures in warehouses and factories are installed at heights exceeding 30 feet or more. Top that with the fact that is not always practical to change a bulb in the middle of a work shift. The cost of personnel plus the cost of the lost floor time productions makes Metal Halide, High Pressure Sodium and fluorescent bulb and ballast replacement expensive. With exceptionally long life and extremely high L70 lifetimes, it is not unreasonable for one to get 10+ years out of a LED High Bay with little if any maintenance.

Some of our High Bays have rated L70 hours of 200,000. For factory and warehouse owners, this means years of maintenance free operation. During that same period, HID and fluorescent bulbs will have gone through many bulb and ballast replacements. That means additional bulb, ballast, labor and disposal costs.

3. Durability in Extreme Environments.

 Some factory environments have harsh conditions (such as vibration) that may cause Metal Halide or High Pressure Sodium bulbs to prematurely fail. LED's, on the other hand, are solid state electronic light devices that are not affected by vibration or shaking. Among the list of reasons why our customers want to convert to LED, durability makes our top 5 list.

4. Introduction of Smart Controls.

By adding Smart Controls such as motion sensors, bi-level controls or a complete wireless control system, cost saving can be dramatically increased. A general rule of thumb is that controls can save you an additional 50% over and above what the LEDs are saving you. And unlike other technologies that see shortened life spans with turning on and off the fixture with motion sensors, our High Bays are not affected by motion sensors and constant on-off cycling. By nature of its design, you would not want to dim or add a motion sensor to a HID light, where it is practical to want and do both with a LED light.

Think about that. The possibility to reduce your lighting bill by 70% is now a reality with the use of LEDs and Smart controls.

Made in the USA LED High Bays

We carry a full line of Made in the USA Made LED High Bays, from 68-888W producing as much as 70,000+ lumens. LED High Bays can be equipped with100-277V or 347-480V drivers. These High Bays are much more than simple LED devices; they include smart drivers that protect themselves against adverse conditions and problems. Programmed for over voltage, under voltage, brown out, overheating and soft starts help ensure your LED fixtures run for the projected life they were designed for. Backed with an OEM 5 year warranty, these High Bays are UL, ETL or CSA Listed (for safety) and DesignLights Consortium Listed (for performance) and are available with custom optics to ensure the light is delivered where you need it.

 Optics: The Ability to Focus Light

Optics allow us to take the light generated by LED and narrow down (or widen) the beam. Over certain mounting heights, optics are advisable to help focus the lumens to where it is needed. With optics, we can design a solution to meet or exceed your existing lighting while reducing your energy consumption.
