What is the best lighting for a shop?
The best lighting is dependent on your shops layout and conditions. Are the ceilings tall? Consider a high bay. Is it dusty? Consider a vapor tight fixture. Are you thinking of using LED or fluorescent fixtures? LED will require zero maintenance and lower your lighting bill. We can help you pick the best lighting for your shop.
What are the best LED Shop lights?
This is a very subjective question. Best can change based on the specific needs of the customer. What is best for one area may not be best for another. Conditions may exist that requires the use of a specific fixture over another. It may be because of light levels, distribution, heat, mounting height. Or it may be in a hazardous location.
We can help you determine the best LED Shop Lights for your application. We can provide you with the guidance to make the best selection.
What is the brightest LED Shop Light?
Typically, LED High Bay lights used in a shop will be the brightest. These fixtures are designed to replace up to 1000W Metal Halide. You probably will not need that much brightness. For a bright shop, try to get an average of 50 foot candles or higher if fine detail work is performed.
Are LED Shop Lights worth it?
LED, over other lighting technologies, may cost a bit more at time of purchase, but you can quickly recover that extra cost in reduced lighting bills and lower maintenance costs. The lighting is high quality (CRI), and it will make your shop brighter and safer. So we think LED Shop Lights are worth it.
How many Lights do I need for my shop?
The best way to determine how many lights you need is to create a lighting plan . A lighting plan calculate lighting for an area is to create a lighting plan using special lighting software. MyLEDLightingGuide specializes in creating these lighting plans. To start, you can purchase a light meter or install a light meter application on your smart phone.
Walk to different locations in your area and take readings in foot candles or lux. Tell us what those readings are, and whether you think the light is good, too bright or not bright enough. Tell us if the light is even across the area.
From this information, we can model your area in our software and give you options before you purchase and decide. We provide this service for FREE. It takes the risk out of buying LED.
LED Overhead Shop Lights
4 ft LED Shop Lights
4 ft LED shop-lights used as shop lights for commercial retail stores, warehouses and storage rooms. They suspend mounted with a hook and chain for lower mounting. They are the perfect replacement for fluorescent fixtures. 100-277V options available as well as linkable led shop lights.
8 ft LED Shop Lights
8 ft LED strip lights applications include times when there is a need for longer fixtures. 8 ft LED shop strip lights produce high lumen output and are the perfect replacement for 8' fluorescent fixtures. They have high efficacy and offer more energy savings over traditional style fluorescent lights.
LED Workshop Lights
Use LED Workshop Lights and lower power LED integrated fixture high bays for warehouse and lower ceiling applications. LED bay fixtures can be the round ufo style or linear panel shaped. They suspend mount using a pendant mount or with a hook and chain. Using low bays and high bays produces a quality lighting for your area.
Hardwired Shop Lights and Plug-in Options
Hardwired Fixtures connect to your lighting with j-box connections. Plug-in models plug directly into the existing electrical box. We have models that will work in either situation. Options available in 100-277V or 277-480V.
1. Efficacy (Lumens Per Watt)
We have LED fixtures that are rated between 130 and 180 lumens / watt. The higher the efficacy, the less watts you will consume producing the necessary light levels. While the initial cost may be slightly higher for the higher efficacy product, the payback will more than offset this additional cost.
What are the brightest LED Lights?
MyLEDLightingGuide can offer extremely bright solutions for a shop. We can easily replace 1000W Metal Halide, if you need that much light. Our LED Shop lights range from 3000 lumens up to almost 100,000 lumens per light.
How much do you need? A foot candle photometric report will show you which light is best for your shop. Too bright is just as bad as too dim. You want the perfect light levels with even distribution.
* Higher Efficiency will save you the most money!
Over the life of a product, the higher efficiency product will be the best choice. The higher cost will pay itself off and back many times over during its life span.
2. Wet Location Fixtures
IP rating designates a fixtures ability to keep out both dust and water. The first digit of the IP score designates dust protection, the second designates water protection. A water protection score of 5 or above helps protect your fixtures from water intrusion.
MyLEDLightingGuide offers IP ratings of IPx5 and IPx6. This allows you to install these fixtures outdoors, exposed to the elements, if required.
3. High Voltage - up to 480V
100V - 277V
277V - 480V
Are you trying to replace fixtures that up to 480 Volts? We have solutions that cover these higher voltage installations. Our constant current drivers are equipped to handle everything from 100 Volts up to to 480 Volts (standard driver in our kits are 100V-277V). We can handle single or 3-phase power as well.
4. Color Temperature Options
In layman's terms, color temperature describes the color appearance of light. Most white light produced by light sources has a tinge of other colors in it. Warm white light colors have a yellow/red/orange glow while cool white lights have a blue tint to them. Between cool light and warm light lies daylight white, the most popular of all light colors.
* The Right Color Temperature
If you are replacing Metal Halide, choose 5000K. If you want something slightly warmer, then 4000K is a good option. Stay away from anything over 5500K or less than 4000K.
5. Light Quality: Color Rendering Index
Color rendering index defines the color of light. It tells us how well a light source will reveal the colors of items compared to sunlight (the ideal light source). When it comes to HID lamps, people usually complain about one thing: poor light color. Light color is important in low bay fixtures. It has a huge impact on clarity and contrast.
Most of our LED fixtures are offered between CRI 70 and 85. We can special order almost any CRI you might need. Typically, for general purpose lighting, 70 CRI is all you need.
* What CRI do you need?
For the most part, 70 CRI will work perfectly. If your shop requires high color identification, then choose a higher CRI in the 80-90+ range.
6. Beam Angles: Proper Light Distribution
The beam angle is what determines the distribution of light. A wide beam angle produces softer light and distributes it better to different areas of a room.
A narrow beam angle produces concentrated light good for accent lighting. It makes the light more intense and focused.
Our LED lights are available in a range of beam angles: from 15° (narrow) to 120° (wide). For lower ceiling applications, we recommend a wide beam distribution to offset the lower ceiling mounting heights. Not sure? We can take all the risk out of purchasing LED by doing a free photometric report with one of our fixtures to find the proper light distribution.
7. Lighting Controls
Light Control Features
According to Energy Star, waste accounts for 30% of all energy utilized in buildings. Light systems can help enhance energy-saving measures through light control features. Light controls can also increase security while enhancing the comfort of the occupants.
While LED shop lights can help save up to 80% in energy costs, light controls can also help cut down on energy wastage. Use light controls to enhance energy efficiency and control of the lighting.
* Some controls need dimming
If you need a control, then you may need a 0-10V dimmable LED driver that works in coordination with your control. For example, some motion sensors can dim the light when there is no detection of motion. To do so, the led driver must be capable of dimming. Not all LED drivers are dimmable.
How to Choose LED Lights for your Shop
Choosing the right fixture for your application can create high-quality, bright lighting. It can impact the safety of your workers and the efficiency of the tasks they perform.
Before choosing your lighting, you should first of all know:
- The mounting height of your fixtures
- The amount of time the operation your shop lights run
- Retrofitting older inefficient shop lights with energy-efficient LED shop lights
When you should consider LED Shop Light Fixtures?
If your ceiling heights are over 20 ft high, then consider installing a high bay fixture. These fixtures provide high-quality, powerful light that designed for large areas. They are also used to illuminate warehouses, gyms and recreational facilities.
Shop-Fixtures provide light with little glare that illuminates smaller areas. Conventional fluorescent fixtures use a prismatic reflective lens or frosted lens to create diffused light. This is perfect for casting light on elevated objects or shelves.
Omni-directional lamps use lenses and optics to direct light to task areas. Use Low bays for spaces with 12 ft to 20 ft high ceilings. They produce less lumens than their high bay counterparts.
What to Look for When Buying Shop Lights
The measurement of light output from LED is lumens. Before , conventional light sources purchased lights according to watts. The higher the wattage, the brighter the bulbs were. Lumens were of little concern back then. But with the introduction of low-wattage, high quality lighting, lumens became more important.
LED lights have become efficient, providing low wattage high quality light and lumens. The lights have also become more affordable. LEDs now offer superior light for less than half the wattage of conventional lights. Watts, as a measurement for quality light, has become invalid. Lumens (and luminous efficacy) have taken over.
To know how bright a light source is, there are a few things you should keep in mind:
- The brightness of the light at its source
- How much of the light illuminates objects a distance away from the light source
How many lumens does a shop need?
The best way to do this is to create a photometric report using your facility. A photometric layout takes your buildings dimensions, (length, width and height) and other factors and create a software representation. We can then add your existing light locations, and then model this with different lighting options.
Why are photometrics important? They allow you to see your area and how it would look under LED Lighting taking the risk out of buying. We can easily run different options with our lights, and provide you with the proper information and guidance. We're here to save you money with LED. But it's as important to get the lighting right.
