Replace Metal Halide, HPS and HID Canopy Lights

LED Canopy Lights - A Primer

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.

Niche Markets for LED Ceiling Canopy Lights

Gas Stations

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.

4 Reasons to Switch to LED Canopy Lights

1. Energy Savings & Sustainability

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.


2. They Lower Lighting Maintenance Costs

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.

3. They Are Able to Withstand the Elements

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.

4. LED Canopy Lights Produce Higher-Quality Light

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.

4 questions to help you choose LED Canopy Lights

1. What will you be illuminating?

2. Where will the light fixtures be installed?

3. What should the color of the light be?

4. Which is the overall look and feel you would like to create?

Canopy Lighting

Once you've determined the vision of the project, choosing the proper LED canopy lights will be easier. Lighting fixtures can be quite difficult to select. Especially if you don't understand lighting specifications or have knowledge of lighting terminology. Here's the top information to consider.


The Brightness of the Light – A Measurement of Lumens

With older lighting technologies, people looked at watts consumed to determine brightness. But with LEDs, lighting is all about lumens. Lumens is the total quantity of visible light a light source produces. Watts tells you the amount of electricity a light source consumes. Visible light is the light that our human eyes can see.

HID and fluorescent lamps produce invisible light ultraviolet and infared, which is not visible to people. LED lights only produces visible light.

The Efficiency of the Light: Luminous Efficacy

If you want to know how efficient a LED lamp is, check its luminous efficacy (also known as lumens per watt). Luminous efficacy tells us the lumens a bulb gives off for every watt it pulls. It is a measure of how well a light bulb produces visible light. LED bulbs are more efficient than HID bulbs. This is why they save so much money to use. The average luminous efficacy of fluorescent lights is 50 to 100 lumens per watt. Metal halide lamps have an average luminous efficacy of 75 to 100 lumens per watt. LED lamps have efficacies ranging between 130 to 190 lumens per watt. And as the technology advances, these efficiencies go higher. Some very small A19 bulbs have achieved 210 lumens per watt. A 2 Watt A19 can replace a 50W incandescent bulb. 

The Temperature of the Light: The Color Temperature

Color temperature defines the color characteristics of a light source. Some light bulbs produce very warm light (red, yellow, and orange). Others produce cool (white and blue) light. Color temperature is usually measured with the Kelvin scale. The higher the temperature, the cooler the appearance of the light. The lower the Kelvin temperature, the warmer the appearance of the light.

LED bulbs produce light in a range of color temperatures. Those used in commercial applications have color temperatures that range between 2700K and 6500K. 

LED Color Temperature Guide



The recommended color temperatures for canopy lighting range between 4000K and 5500K. Light fixtures with a color temperature between 5000K and 5500K give off bright white light. Light bulbs with a color temperature close to that of daylight appears to be very natural. 

Wet Location Rating

One thing that has a great impact on the durability of light bulbs is where they're installed. Some conditions can be very harsh on some types of light bulbs. These include humid areas and locations where the fixtures are exposed to water. It's recommended that you buy fixtures that're designed for wet locations.

What Are Wet Locations? Wet locations are areas where lighting products may be exposed to water or , moisture. The lighting fixtures in these locations may see elements like snow, rain, hail, or sleet. This liquid may flow, drip, or splash on them and damage their electrical components. 


Wet Location IP Rating 


IP65 rated

IP rating refers to a system that's used to rate lighting products ability to shield from exposure to water and dust. The IP rated bulbs you choose will depend on the specific place you intend to install them. IP65, IP66, and IP67 light fixtures are designed for use in wet locations.

The first digit in the IP number refers to the level of protection against intrusion from solid particles like dust. The Number 6 usually indicates that the light fixtures are protected from dust.

The second digit of the IP number indicates the level of protection against moisture. IP65 bulbs are protected from water that's sprayed from devices with nozzles. IP66 bulbs are protected from powerful jets. IP67 light bulbs can be immersed in water.
