How do I Choose the Best LED High Bay Lights for my Business?

Expert LED Lighting Installers in Melbourne, Australia - Free LED High Bay Lights Replacement in Victoria

Before replacing a high-intensity halogen high bay with LED high bay light, you need to select and compare several specs like LED equivalent wattage, lumen output, correlated color temperature (CCT), color rendering index (CRI), lumen per watt rating and lifespan of the LED light. You also need to confirm whether the LED high bays are dimmable/non-dimmable and they can be retrofitted to the existing fixture.

While choosing an LED high bay light, match your current fixture’s lumen output to the linear high bay that you are considering. This is a good sign of which linear LED high bay fixture is correct for you, rather than just the equivalent wattage. Be sure also to check the correlated color temperature. A smaller number of Kelvin means that the light is warmer, closer to the incandescent which is not a good choice for a commercial space. A higher Kelvin number(>4000 Kelvin) means the light is cooler and best suited for commercial or industrial applications. A light source of cooler temperature helps in increasing productivity and decreasing strain on the eyes.

There are Three Main Types of LED High Bay Lights

Linear LED High Bays

Linear LED high bay lights look similar to fluorescent tube high bays. They are rectangular in design and ideal replacement of the fluorescent tube high bays. Because of their linear design, they are easy to install and best suitable for aisles.

Conventional High Bays

Such lights have a reflector in the form of a cone. Old-fashioned mercury vapor or metal halide high bay lights required the reflector. LEDs that already direct their light output downwards don’t need the diffuser. In fact, if not designed correctly, the reflector dome may inhibit the ability of a high bay LED to dissipate heat

UFO/Round LED High Bays

Round type high bays are the most commonly styled having a disk-like shape The form typically encourages the construction of a heat sink so that the LEDs can operate as cold as possible.

What are High Bay Lights?

As the name suggests, high bay lights are ceiling’s lights – 20 to 45 feet high – used to illuminate large spaces like a big retail store, garage or a warehouse. On the contrary, low bay lights are used to illuminate the ceiling of fewer than 20 feet high.

As a high ceiling warehouse or bay has more space to fill, a high bay by definition is a powerful light source that is powerful enough to light up a large space or warehouse.

Where are High Bay Lights Used?

Due to their position and high lumen output, needless to say, high bays are rights fit for commercial and industrial applications. These have several uses across a variety of industries including garages, warehouses, manufacturing and assembly lines, large recreational facilities, factories, gyms, and storage facilities. They are being used in Australia for large convention halls, event centers or any place that requires lighting from a height of over 20 feet.
Let’s see how they relate to some of these industries.

  1. Commercial & Retail stores

    Highbays are used in large grocery stores, casinos, retail displays and malls, and other retail / commercial settings to boost light quality and to save a lot of energy.

  2. Warehouses

    The warehouses are often faced with lighting issues. Light standards must be met by warehouses without impacting light quality. LED high bays have perfectly met the requirements of the warehouses while ensuring optimum levels of lumens and color temperature.

  3. Cold Storage facilities

    The vast floor space & diverse lighting requirements of cold storage facilities influence the choice of lighting. When workers are present, high-quality light is needed without heating up the critical temperature of the plant. High bay lights are exceptionally perfect lighting solutions for cold storage.

  4. Manufacturing

    The factory spaces require high-quality and energy-efficient lighting. High-bay lights are efficient in the manufacturing environment and are designed primarily for rugged factory settings. Highbay lights can optimize the required light intensity while reducing energy consumption.

What Types of Fixtures & Fittings are Used in High Bay Lights?

Various types of fixtures are used when installing high bay lights. Every high bay fixture has its pros and cons. LED high bays, for example, have a long service life and high energy efficiency but require a larger initial investment, whereas traditional metal halides & halogen/HID lamps are less expensive to purchase initially but do not last as long and devour thousands of units of electricity.

FAQs about Free LED High Bay Replacement

Q: What are the high bay lights?

As their name implies, high bay lights are used to illuminate spaces with high ceilings. This usually means ceilings ranging from 20 feet to approximately 45 feet. Low bay lights, on the other hand, are used for ceilings 20 feet and under. Because a high-ceiling location has more space to fill, a high bay by definition is a powerful light source that can brighten up a large area.

Q: What are the various types of high bay lights?

There are many types of fixtures to choose from when setting up high bay lighting. These include LED lights, lighting for induction, metal halide lights, and fluorescent lights.

Q: What advantages do LED high bays have?
  • LED high bays offer clear, uniform illumination with the little glare of what is below it. Different reflectors for high bay lights can perform different illumination tasks. Aluminum reflectors make light flow directly down to the floor from the fixtures, while prismatic reflectors produce a more diffused lighting useful to illuminate shelves and other elevated items in space.
  • Highly energy efficient
  • Longer lifespan. The life of LED lights varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. Under normal circumstances, LED lamps last up to 10 years.
  • Low to zero heat emissions. The energy-efficient nature means no loss of heat during light production so the lamp remains cool.
  • Despite the higher initial capital cost, It offers a better return on consumed wattage for produced lumens. This helps in reducing utility costs significantly.
Q: How do you know if it's a high bay light bulb or low bay bulb?

It’s actually very simple to determine which type of fixture these bulbs are for. Just like with regular high bay or low bay attachments, you must look at the Lumens. Lumens are the light output metric for a lamp or the amount of energy it creates. Lamps that supply less than 10,000 lumens are considered low light bulbs. High bay light bulbs produce over 10,000 lumens. For example, a retrofit bulb producing 20,000 lumens will be installed in high bay lighting while a bulb emitting only 4,100 lumens will be installed in low bays.

Q: What are high and low bay LED retrofit lamps?

Retrofitting allows you to keep your existing fixtures while enjoying the benefits LED lighting has to offer. Many LED manufacturers offer high bay LED light retrofitting kits to migrate seamlessly from metal halide/mercury vapour to LED high bay.

Q: Where are high bay lights used?

Given their placement, high bay lights are fit for commercial and industrial use. They have multiple applications across a range of industries, including workshops, factories, and assembly lines. You will also see high bay lights in large recreational facilities and gyms. These lights are excellent for illuminating storage facilities and warehouses as well. They can be used for large conference halls, event centers, or for any place that needs lighting from an elevation of over 20 feet. They are even used in hangars and other large, cavernous buildings.

Q: What is mounting height for LED linear high bays and low bays?
The mounting height is how high the light source is from the floor, meaning the distance from the floor to fixture instead of floor to ceiling. Some LED linear high bay light fixtures are designed for chain mounting and require a minimum suspension distance from the ceiling while linear high bays can be surface mounted. It’s possible for surface-mounted LED linear high bay lights to require a minimum distance of recessed space between ceiling and fixture for ventilation.
Q: LED high bay and low bay retrofit bulbs
Because LED lights use only a fraction of the energy consumed by traditional filament/HID lamps or fluorescent bulbs, LED high bay lights are installed in existing fixtures using a LED retrofit kit. LED retrofit kits are an intelligent way of cutting your business or facility’s total energy costs by utilising existing lighting fixtures.

By using a retrofit kit for LEDs, your warehouse/store can replace an old, halogen light like a metal halide with an identical LED, without replacing the existing lighting fixture or lighting system. The integrated LED retrofit kit helps the new LED lamp to sit conveniently inside the old fixture.

Usually, high bay and low bay lights are mounted by chains on ceilings or ceiling girders. Such fixtures are the perfect source of light for an enormous open space with a ceiling height of over 10 meters.

The height of the ceiling defines what sort of lights to add in the room/hall. For instance, if the ceiling height is greater than 20 feet high bay lights are better. Low bay lights suit spaces having ceiling height between 12-20 feet.

By retrofitting older fixtures with new LED technology, your facility will see a reduction in energy usage by up to 75%. There’s also better productivity because good light is essential for work efficiency. Light controls integrate into your lighting system, saving up to 80%.

If you don’t know the difference between lamp, light, bulb and fixture and LED, don’t worry. Ecofin lighting expert will help you learn all you need to know when choosing the right solution for retrofit lighting.

Q: What is LED High Bay light lense?
LED lenses perform the dual function of enabling accurate control of light beams and they offer a nice aesthetic appearance by masking the LED components inside. LED lenses come in different shapes and sizes, e.g. round, square and hexagonal. Popular materials for the lenses include plastic and silicone. Hence some are solid and some are flexible. Lenses are intended for single-or multiple-LED use. This includes modules or strips with LEDs. They sit over the LEDs to create the desired lighting effect.

Q: What are LED reflectors?
LED reflectors sit above the LED to alter the light beam. They are an easy-to-use, affordable solution for your lighting fitment. However, they don’t offer as much control as the LED lenses. The reflectors are made from plastic and can be coated with metal. Inside, the LED reflectors are smooth or multifaceted and come in different shapes. That allows them to create a variety of lighting effects. Some reflectors contain a sub lens, for further diffusion or light control.

Q: What are the best LED High Bay Lights?
LED high bay come in all kinds of size, design and lumen ratings. When selecting the high bay light best suited for your warehouse/garage, factor in variables like floor area, ceiling height, operating conditions (temperature and humidity), etc. You need to consider the lumens per watt (LPW or L/W). The higher this number, the more energy-efficient the light is. For extreme operation conditions, look for IP (ingress protection) ratings on the packaging. For example, an LED high bay light of an IP 65 rating can be used in harsh or moist conditions. Also, look for beam angle, equivalent wattage & operating hours to know the average lifespan of a high bay LED light.

Q: How Many LED High Bay Lights do I Need for My Space?

There are many variables that come into play. The number of lights depends upon the total number of fixtures, brightness, height, beam angle, etc. If you are installing lights for the first time, you need to find the floor area of your warehouse and ceiling light. Since various factors matter when ideally illuminating a space, there is no one-size-fits-all solution for the lighting scheme.

As a rule of thumb, you can follow the following lighting scheme:

1. For 15-19 feet high ceiling
For a bright illuminated space, place the light about 10–12 feet spacing. In case you want a normal brightness, the ideal lighting space should be maintained (14-16 feet wide).

2. For 20-29 feet high ceiling
You can go for an 18-20 feet spacing if you need to brighten up your space. In case you want a normal light, a spacing of up to 16 feet is ideal. Since the mounting height is higher, you will need higher power high bay lights. Besides, you need to use a wider beam angle if you select 20 feet spacing for high bay lights.

3. For 30 feet or higher ceiling
If you own a spacious warehouse with high ceiling height, consider 20-foot space between the lights for proper illumination. However, for normal light, a spacing of 25 feet is appropriate. Here, we will need to mount 400 to 1000 watts of high bay LED to provide sufficient brightness.

Q: How Many Lumens per Square Foot do I Need?

You will need to multiply your room square footage by your room foot-candle requirement to determine the required lumens. Follow this table to know the foot-candle numbers.
A foot-candle is a non-SI unit that calculates the intensity of light emitted from a surface to determine an adequate level of light in one square foot. The foot-candle is equivalent to 1 lumen per square foot of about 10 lux.

Room Foot Candles Needed
Living Room10-20
Kitchen General30-40
Kitchen Stove70-80
Kitchen Sink70-80
Dining Room30-40
Bed RoomT10-20
Hall Way5-10
Bathroom70-80

For example, a 100 square foot living room that needs 10-20 foot candles will require 1,000 to 2,000 lumens. A 100 square foot dining room, which needs 30-40 foot candles, will need 3,000-4,000 lumens.
