Why LED Panels Are a Better Choice than Fluorescent Troffers
According to the US Department of Energy, in 2010, 4 out of 5 lamps in businesses were fluorescents. Most of them were in troffer fixtures. But the ever-progressing technology of LEDs poses a big challenge for fluorescent lamps. The Department of Energy estimates from 2010 - 2012, sales of LED panels increased from 40,000 to almost 700,000. LEDs have revolutionized the lighting industry while fluorescent troffers have become non-existent. The troffer lighting market is now the realm of LEDs.
Why choose MyLEDLightingGuide LED Panels?
1. 2X2 LED Panels and 2X4 LED Panels
2X2 LED Panel
2X4 LED Panel
MyLEDLightingGuide offers both 2X2 LED Panels and 2X4 LED Panels in both edge lit and direct lit styles. Edge lit LED Panels offer an extreme thin design that accommodates shallow ceiling heights. For cost effective solutions, our back lit or direct lit series offers great performance for those on a budget.
All lenses are shatter resistant and install easy in existing commercial t-grid ceilings. This makes conversion from fluorescent troffers to LED Panels simple and easy.
2. Color Temperature Options
We offer both 4000K and 5000K temperature options on our standard 2X2 and 2X4 LED Panels. These 2 color options are by far the most common. They're widely used in both commercial and educational indoor spaces.
Our Tunable Color Temperature LED Panels takes out the worry of selecting a color temperature. Using a remote control, you can switch between 3000K, 4000K and 5000K. You can also control the light intensity with 4 present light levels. Spaces can be set up to accommodate color and light levels independent of other spaces.
3. Emergency Backup LED Panels
Emergency Backup Power Supply
Emergency Backup ensures the panels stay lit when power goes off. Not every panel you install needs to have this option. But using this inside commercial spaces ensures your employees and customers have a safe and lit passage when there's no power.
4. Works with Motion Sensors and Daylight Controls
Controls like motion sensors and daylight harvesters can be added to control light levels. They can turn off or turn down the light levels when full light levels are not required.
These features both require 0-10V dimming, which are available on our LED Panels.
5. Energy savings and drammatically reduce maintenance costs
The US Department of Energy estimates LED panels save up to 80% on energy costs compared to fluorescent troffers. The rated life of LEDs is 50,000 hours and can go up to 100,000 hours.
LED panels have a longer lifespan than fluorescent troffers, they lower maintenance costs. LED panels can be what you need to reduce electric consumption in your building or facility.
6. Say goodbye to fluorescent tubes, mercury and costs of disposal
Fluorescent tubes flicker. This causes eye-strain and headaches. They contain mercury that turns into dust if a tube breaks. They are an environmental hazard. It's a source of concern for employees, customers and students that have to work, shop and study under these lights.
Then there's the cost of replacing and proper disposing of these tubes. Converting to our LED Panel removes these dangers and costs.
7. Long Useful Life
One of the biggest benefits of LED lighting is its very long lifetime. LEDs have no breakable moving parts or filaments. They are able to produce light for much longer than fluorescent lamps. The truth is the output of all light sources (high intensity discharge lamps, fluorescents, and even LEDs) decreases over time. The amount of light produced at a certain time in the future is lumen maintenance factor (LLMF). For LEDs, their lifetime is the amount of time it takes until their light output – or lumen maintenance – reaches 70% of the initial output. This is a L70 rating.
LED lights do not experience instant burnout as conventional light sources do. What happens is a gradual dim. Lighting designers must take this into account when planning a lighting installation. The light levels must meet the recommended minimum lux value until the end of the LEDs lifetime. Most lighting experts install more luminaires to ensure the minimum lux levels are met. In fact, the luminaire industry has equalized L70=50,000. This corresponds to a lumen maintenance factor of 0.7. So long as the life expectancy of the lighting installation is set to a similar amount of hours.
Benefits of LED Panels
Let's look at the wattage for both fluorescent and LED panel.
1. A 2x4 fluorescent troffer uses up to 160 watts – a single fixture.
2. A LED panel that replaces a 160-watt fluorescent troffer only uses 30-50 watts.
3. Replacing fluorescent troffers with LED panels, returns a 50-80% reduction in cost savings.
We want to show you how much you'll save when you convert your fluorescent troffers.
So let's put it in dollars.
By converting to LED, you may save up to $81* for every fixture (every year) on energy costs alone.
If you have a large facility with many fluorescent lights, there’s no doubt that you will save a lot of money.

Better Lighting Performance
Lowering energy and maintenance costs is crucial to keeping organizations efficient. It is very important to make sure that the performance of the lighting is not compromised. LEDs produce higher quality light and they are in a class of their own. LED panels distribute light different compared to fluorescent troffers. They provide a more even foot candle on the ground below. Also, their optics can be varied to meet foot candle requirements from any height.
An important note is LED panels come in a wide range of color temperatures: 3000K, 4000K and 5000K.
The high correlated color temperature in LED panels allows you to choose a specific look for any space. LED lights also have a high color rendering index. This ensures people working under the LED panels are able to see whatever they are working on.
Another great benefit of LED panels is that they work with dimmers. This is a great benefit because you can change the operating conditions of the lights after the LED conversion. LEDs can adjust to fit the specific usage needs of individual rooms. Without compromising the functionality of the lights themselves.
New generation LED panels have lighting controls integrated or built-in emergency backup to make your job easy. And the good news is that the price of LED panels has gone down over time.
