Choosing the right type of lighting for your large facility is a challenge, without a doubt. You need something that is going to evenly distribute light, not cost you a fortune to operate, and that will be bright enough for the application. High bay light fixtures are common in large spaces because they do a good job of offering illumination, but traditionally, high bay light fixtures have operated with fluorescent bulbs, which aren't the best option for several reasons. Modern-day high bay lights are instead outfitted with LEDs. Take a look at some of the perks of these light fixtures when they are outfitted with LED bulbs.
These lights have no issue shining brightly when they're first powered on.
One of the biggest nuisances with fluorescent lights is the fact that they can only give unreliable light output, especially when the bulbs are initially turned on. Old high bays with fluorescent bulbs would flicker and stay dim until power distribution could even out within the bulb itself. LEDs are constantly reliable, even if you just flipped the switch. There is no "warm-up" period in which you have to wait for your lights to get brighter.
These lights outlast fluorescent bulbs by a long shot.
One of the greatest advantages of LED high bay lights is they are going to give you far more bang for your buck. You will not find yourself having to replace LED lights all that often. Most of the bulbs are rated to live for thousands of hours. Even a basic LED bulb for a typical light fixture is capable of providing at least 10,000 hours of operation before it has to be replaced. High bay lights are not easy to access, so the less you have to change the bulbs the better off you will be for sure.
These lights offer a high lumen output for even light distribution.
One of the bigger challenges in a large space that needs to be well-lit is finding fixtures and bulbs that can do a good job. High bay lights are specifically made to use in large areas, but the real difference in illumination will come with the high-lumen output of the LED bulbs that are used. If you will take note of some of the brightest flashlights on the modern market, you will see that the majority of them come with LED bulbs. This is because LEDs offer some of the highest lumen outputs.
