Garage lighting can apply to both residential garages for cars or home shops, or commercial car and auto repair garages where cars are repaired and worked on. There are a variety of LED fixtures designed for these areas, as well as different mounting options to choose from. Providing well distributed and diffused light to cover a large area is available, and running a photometric evaluation in your area will determine what is the best option.

Garage lighting can either be suspended from the ceiling with chain or pendant mount or mounted directly  to the ceiling when height is limited. Lighting can be designed to provide both broad distribution as well as focused task lighting.

1. What are the best LED lights for a garage?

The best LED Lights are the ones that provide the right combination of light output and even light distribution. There is no perfect answer, but there is a perfect solution. You can determine the best light by having us create a free photometric evaluation for you. This will allow us to pick the perfect LED Garage light providing the right amount of light ensuring its evenly distributed so that your entire shop is bright and inviting.

2. How many Lumens do you need in a Garage?

The best way to do this is to create a photometric report using your facility. A photometric layout takes your garage 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. 

Types of Commercial LED Garage Lights 

High Bay Lights

Suitable for the high ceilings (over 20 ft)  of warehouses, storage areas and large commercial garages, high bay fixtures produce high Lumen output and quality light. Options include UFO Style and linear panels with models that can easily replace 250W to 1000W Metal Halide. 

LED High Bays should not be considered unless the mounting heights are over 20 ft. They may be too bright otherwise.

LED Shop Lights

Brighten work areas, benches and tables in your garage with LED shop lights. Many of these fixtures will simply plug into the nearest outlet. Other LED shop lights hardwire into your existing electrical circuits. They work well with motion sensors as well.


Low Bay Lights

Low Bay lights are the lower ceiling offering of high bay lights. They are typically found in ceiling heights less than 20 ft high. They have the same benefits of robustness, high quality and energy efficient lighting, They also come in UFO Style and Linear Panel Style.

LED Low Bays and LED High Bays are basically the same fixture, the difference being is that low bays are less powerful versions of High Bays.

LED Wraparound Fixtures

Wraparound fixtures are good if you don't have the ceiling height to hang suspended fixtures.

Wraparound fixtures mount flush to the ceiling. Wraparounds illuminate from both the bottom and sides. 

LED Wraparound fixtures are best for smaller areas with low ceilings. While there are more powerful options available, in many instances LED Wrap Around lights will do the need for home garages and shops.
