5 Best LED High Bay Lights in 2017

High bay fixtures are a critical part to any high ceiling building. Since these high bays require such large lumen output, the cost to run them can be high, especially when running old Metal Halide or HPS lights. By converting to LED high bays, you are able to reduce your energy consumption in your most energy intensive fixtures by up to 75% (or more).

In this post, we are going to cover (non-comparatively) 5 top types of LED high bay lights. While not every item on this list will apply to you and your building, there will surely be one or two for your needs if you currently use high bay lights in your facility.
