Replace Metal Halide, HPS and HID Canopy Lights
LED Canopy Lights
Canopy lighting has improved and transitioned from HID to energy-efficient LED lighting. Canopy lighting is outdoor lighting that is pendant, recessed or surface mounted to a structure's ceiling or soffit.
Canopy lights are used in a myriad of applications. These include hotels, parking areas, gas stations, bank drive-thrus and covered walkways. Canopy lights are used in industrial applications to illuminate walkways and aisles. LED canopy lights are the best replacements for HID lamps. These fixtures can be surface mounted or suspended mounted using pendants. LED canopy lights are more efficient, have longer hours of operation and require less maintenance than HID Lights. The lights make building entrances safe and secure at night and provide a clean, modern look.
LED Canopy Light Applications
Traditional Gas Station canopy light fixtures consume a lot of electricity. LEDs replace HID canopy lights with a higher quality, more efficient light source. They can dim to take advantage of ambient lighting.
They provide a bright, safe and welcoming experience for customers. LED canopy lights are able to withstand demanding conditions of an outdoor environment.
Car Dealership Service Centers and Showrooms
Auto dealers usually open their businesses from morning hours and into the night. LED canopy lighting can transform automotive dealership service centers and car showrooms.
Service centers usually have lower ceilings and require bright, high-quality light. This is where the inspections of vehicles occur for estimates. Car showrooms have higher ceilings and need very bright lights to showcase the inventory. Bright, high-quality light is also needed to show off the vehicles on sale. LEDs replace HID and fluorescent fixtures providing high quality and cost efficient lighting. Our LED canopy lights require little maintenance and lower operational costs.
Small Garages and Carports
LED canopy lights can be suitable for small garages and carports. They provide bright, high quality lighting. When paired with motion sensors, they can brighten when motion's detected. For commercial businesses, this creates a more inviting environment.
Covered Walkways and Areas
LED canopy lighting illuminates walkways and extends daytime business hours. Canopy lighting is perfect for backyard canopies, outdoor walkways, and yards around buildings. Walkway canopy lights provide shadow-free illumination to covered walkways. The lights provide lighting design flexibility for a wide range of applications.

Are your existing fixtures in good shape? Retrofitting your canopy lights may be an option. Using one of our retrofit kits, you can simply replace the HID bulb and ballast with one of our LED Retrofit Kits. These work specifically well with fixtures that have existing lens/optics.
11 models available that produces from 5000 to over 50000 lumens
4. High Voltage Canopy Fixtures - from 100V to 480V
We offer both standard voltage options of 100V-277V (standard) and high voltage options of 347V-480V (optional).
Our canopy lights are available with up to 20kVA surge suppression. This keeps your canopy fixture investment safe in all weather conditions.
5. 4000K and 5000K Color Temperatures
We offer Canopy color temperature options in both 4000K and 5000K. 5000K is a perfect replacement for Metal Halide. 4000K is also an option for those states requiring a slightly warmer light. Other color temperatures available upon request.
Both offer a significant improvement over high pressure sodium lights, rated at 2200K.
6. Control Ready and Dimmable
Our canopy lights are available with motion sensors that turn on when motion is detected. And because our LED Lights are instant on / instant off, gone are the days of long strike and re-strike times. So if there is a blip in your power supply, your canopy lights will be instantly lit up when the power comes back on.
7. L70 Light Maintenance - up to 100,000 hours
Lumen maintenance relates to the lifespan of a light source. LED lights do not burn out like traditional lights. They maintain initial lumens longer. What happens is the light intensity fades gradually, but this usually takes years.
A 70% deterioration in light output is the point at which the human eye notices a decline in the intensity. But, the human eye is only affected when the light intensity of a light source reaches a level of 30%.
Used 12 hours a night, our LED Canopy fixtures and Retrofit Kits will provide bright, maintenance free lighting for years.
8. High CRI - 70+
One of the specifications you need to pay attention to is CRI (color rendering index). This is a measurement of the quality of light that the fixture is producing. It is a scale between 0 and 100. Sunlight is 100. A general rule is that you need less quantity of light if you have better quality. LED has high CRI making the quality better than most traditional light sources.
We offer 70+ CRI options, so we can meet any spec you need.
9. Energy savings and maintenance savings - up to 80%
LED lights offer high-quality light and use fewer watts than traditional HID lighting. What this means is that you will have more intense light but your power bill will decrease.
Most of the traditional HID canopy lights use between 250 and 1000 watts. That does not include the additional 15% energy used for ballast draw.
If we compare this to LEDs, which consume 40 to 300 watts – there is a 40% to 60% reduction in energy. Greater savings when lighting controls are added.
Maintenance costs drops to near zero. This means your maintenance staff will be not be fixing lights.
10. Efficacy (Lumens Per Watt)
Luminous efficacy is the true measure of a bulb’s efficiency. It indicates the lumens produced for every watt of electricity consumed. LEDs are more efficient than traditional bulbs with a higher luminous efficacy. High quality LEDs have awesome efficacy ratings.
To calculate luminous efficacy, divide the number of lumens the lamp generates by the watts of electricity it consumes. LED light fixtures with a higher luminous efficacy are more efficient than those with a lower luminous efficacy.
We have canopy fixtures and retrofit kits rated between 130 and 165 lumens/watt. We can help you choose the right efficiency.
11. Paybacks can be relatively short with LED Canopy Lights
Save Money with LED
LED payback = Hours of Use + Reduced Use of Electricity + Rebates
Rebates may be the least important of the three. High hours of use and high cost of electricity will dwarf the benefits of a rebate.
Everyone likes a rebate. We have created many proposals where payback was under 1 year even without rebates. Contact us and we can help walk you through the math.
4 Reasons to Switch to LED Canopy Lights
One of the best things about LED canopy lights is that they boost safety while lowering costs. Switching to LED can help a business save thousands of dollars on both energy and labor. LEDs have a very long lifespan and require less maintenance than traditional fixtures. They also consume a lot less electricity.
LEDs decrease costs both operational and maintenance costs. Getting LED canopy lights makes financial sense. On average, a large-scale upgrade has a payback period as low as 6 months.
LED lights help you to save money by lowering lighting maintenance costs. High intensity discharge lamps and fluorescent lights do not have a long lifespan. Their life expectancy is between 12,000 and 25,000 hours. HIDs lose their lumens fast and fluorescent may be affected by different operational conditions. With short lives, replacing them becomes an all to often process. If the light fixtures in high locations, the cost of replacement will be high.
The rated life of LED bulbs is between 50,000 and 100,000+ hours. LEDs use L70 rating to indicate the length of time they will operate until their light output is 70% of the initial output. L70 hours are typically 50,000 hours or greater. HID reaches L50 at half-life. This can be as little as 6000 hours.
LEDs have a high level of efficiency and function well in different environments. HID lights installed in freezing environments use more electricity to generate adequate light. They have to work harder to produce light. LEDs are very efficient and can function in cold temperatures.
Many LED Canopy fixtures are IP rated to withstand wet conditions, rain and bad weather. Our LED canopy lights have the top certifications and work well in both hot and cold environments.
One of the great things about LED lights is that they have the ability to generate quality light. Color Rendering Index, or CRI, is a measurement of light quality. Sunlight is a perfect score of 100. High Pressure Sodium is 22. Metal Halide is about 65. LED's start at 70 and go as high as 98. You will also find you need less quantity of lumens when you have a higher quality source of light.
