Regardless of your building type, our high bay lights will illuminate your large space.
High bay fluorescent lighting was developed out of necessity from an energy shortage. After research with neon tubes coated in phosphors, engineers had to develop a more productive bulb during the 1973 oil crisis. General Electric moved toward creating the first compact fluorescent light (CFL) for homes. At the time, the expense to use these bulbs in homes was too great, but eventually, with continued development, the production of fluorescent lights became more affordable.
Fluorescent high bay lighting is commonly used for ceilings ranging from 20 feet to approximately 45 feet. Low bays, on the other hand, are used for ceilings greater than 15 feet. Because of their placement, these lights are perfect fits for commercial buildings and industrial uses. Many industries and buildings use these lights because of their availability and output:
- Assembly Lines
- Storage Facilities
The ability to tailor our High Bay Fluorescent lights makes Energy Solutions the perfect partner for all of your lighting needs.
While the most common use for high bay fluorescent lighting is in the industrial world, they are also great for large recreational facilities and gyms. With the clear, uniform lighting, these lights illuminate volumes of square footage with little glare. The adaptability of these fixtures is another notable feature. Aluminum reflectors can focus the light on specific areas of the floor while prismatic reflectors diffuse the light – useful for highlighting shelves and other elevated spaces. The diverse style of fixtures available make high-bay lighting ideal for a variety of spaces. Energy Solutions carries the HS Series that can be tailored to fit virtually any application. The ME Series is architecturally styled to provide a soft and even illumination. The right choice of high bay fluorescent can increase safety in the workplace as well as promote productivity.
With the change in production of fluorescent lights and more costly upkeep, many companies are shifting toward LED lights. Years ago, many businesses would not have anticipated the large shift from fluorescent to LED in the warehouse sector because of the amount of space needed to be lit. However, today’s lighting industry has found that LEDs have many benefits that are tailored to larger spaces, making them a great alternative. Moving from fluorescent to LED is a big choice, but well worth the consideration. Energy Solutions understands cost is a large factor in many retrofit projects, and we are here to help discuss the different options if you want to explore other ideas of lighting.
