Compared with traditional lighting, LED work lights has many advantages. Although LEDs provide better energy and maintenance efficiency, and better lighting quality, they have some effects on warehouses and large open facilities, especially those that most people don’t necessarily realize. This is largely related to the technical difference between LED lights and traditional lighting. Read the following documents to understand the specific, problem-by-problem comparison between LED lamps and typical warehouse lamps (such as fluorescent lamps and metal halide lamps (a type of HID bulb)). In addition, pay attention to the following three projects, some of the key LED characteristics help them to obtain a huge advantage in large-scale warehouse lighting and stadium lighting.
Warehouses usually use one of two types of lamps: linear fluorescent lamps or metal halide lamps. Although fluorescent lamps and metal halide bulbs are more advanced than incandescent lamps, when directly compared with LED lamps, they still have problems such as the risk of disposal, shorter life span, and lower lighting efficiency. This is something everyone knows. When the overall efficiency of your lighting system is affected, here are three issues that are not usually discussed:
LED elimination preheating time: The preheating time of metal halide lamps is particularly long (15-20 minutes is typical to achieve full power). This is why you will see large stadiums turning on their lights before the sun’s rays have completely disappeared. Before they really need lighting, the stadium must run for 20-25 minutes. This means that they begin to burn energy before they are needed. Oh, by the way, metal halides are less efficient at low power, so when they warm up to full power, they consume more energy per unit of light output (lumens).
3.Led can be switched frequently: For metal halide lamps, if you need to turn on the light again when it is not in use, you cannot turn off the light, which is a major problem. Once you turn off the metal halide, it takes 15-20 minutes to recover. This means that the lamp usually needs to run longer than normal. If there is a 30-45 minute interval in the action, the lights will usually be on, because turning off the lights is too troublesome, and problems may arise when you need them again. The led can be turned off or turned on instantly, without causing damage to the light output or the device itself. This means that when lights are used unnecessarily, energy and the life of the equipment will not be wasted/damaged
LED warehouse lighting is the new specification! In short, industrial LEDs provide a better solution for large facilities to keep their energy and maintenance costs under control. Today, most organizations can save money through this transition. We can help!

Industrial LED lighting is completely changing the rules of the game for enterprises and facility owners. In the past few decades, LED lighting is superior to other technologies in terms of energy consumption, maintenance costs, and lighting quality (except in very special circumstances). Industrial LED lighting is suitable for many applications, but it is a particularly good investment for parking lots, warehouses and parking lots. Let’s take a look at the benefits of LED lighting and how they can greatly improve industrial and outdoor spaces, especially parking lots and warehouses.
3 major benefits of Industrial LED work lighting:
When it comes to lighting, you might think that it’s simple, like “Are they on?” But that’s not the case-absolutely not. Over time, inefficient lighting products will cost a lot of money in terms of energy consumption and maintenance and replacement. In addition, if you have never been exposed to high-quality lighting, you may not know what you (and your tenants, customers, etc.) are missing. The following are the reasons why industrial LED lighting is superior to other lighting technologies in these three aspects.
Reduce energy consumption: Traditional lighting technology usually uses natural gas or other fuels, which means your energy bill is much higher than you actually need. In contrast, LED industrial lighting uses semiconductors to emit light, which basically means that current causes light to be emitted. Industrial LED lighting is also superior to other technologies in terms of efficiency, because the emitted light can be directed where you want. On the other hand, traditional lighting is omnidirectional, which means that it emits 360 degrees of light. This has two negative consequences: houses or fixtures are needed to guide the light, and a lot of energy is wasted due to unusable light emissions.
Lower maintenance costs: Although the initial cost of completing the LED transformation may be high, you can consider saving a lot of money and manpower on replacing the bulb. The service life of some industrial LED bulbs is 4 to 40 times that of traditional lighting solutions, which means that a lot of replacement costs can be saved. Consider all the light bulbs in your facility or parking lot. If you don’t need to replace the light bulbs in 15 years, it will make a big difference. In addition, switching from gas discharge lamps to LED technology will help eliminate waste disposal problems.
High-quality lighting: When it comes to color rendering index (CRI), correlated color temperature (CCT) and foot candles, industrial LED lights usually score higher than most other bulbs. CRI is the ability of measuring light to reveal the actual color of an object compared to an ideal light source (natural light). In non-technical terms, CCT usually describes the “glow” emitted by a light bulb-is it warm (slightly red) or cold (slightly blue)? Foot candles compare the amount of light from the light source and reach the desired level The amount of light on the surface; they are basically a measure of efficiency. In these three aspects, the performance of industrial LED lights is very good. (Click here to read more about CRI, CCT and foot candles.)
Why LED work lights for your parking lots and parking garages?
Parking lots and parking lots are ideal for LED retrofits for the following reasons. First, the lighting of the parking lot has a great impact on whether customers, tenants, and service providers feel safe and comfortable around your facility. Second, the parking lot usually covers a large area, so any changes you make will have a big impact. Third, the high-quality lighting provided by LED industrial lights can improve the beauty of your facility.
For example, take a look at the difference in lighting quality in the parking lot of M&T Bank. In the top photo, you can see the high pressure sodium (HPS) lamp emits a yellow-orange light with many shadows and darker areas. In general, the environment is dim, a little dim. The kind of light you have to squint to see more clearly. In contrast, the LED lighting used to modify the parking lot clearly illuminates all signs, tracks and corners. Most importantly, there is no dark area for your customers to sneak out. This assessment doesn’t even include the savings from the reduction of energy bills and maintenance costs!
Why LED work lighting for your warehouses?
Anyone who has worked in large multi-purpose buildings or warehouses knows the limitations of high-intensity discharge (HID) lighting: once you turn off those lights, it will take a while before you can turn them on and fully work. Industrial LED lighting solutions eliminate this cycle problem and provide higher quality light. Like parking lots and parking lots, warehouses and industrial spaces also occupy a large area, so any improvement will have a huge impact.
Do you need help with industrial LED lighting?
Considering that the retrofit of LEDs can be a bit scary-with so many lighting options and industrial LED luminaires, it may be difficult to know where to start.
In addition, the upfront cost may scare off owners and managers. That is, until the complete return on investment (ROI) calculation is completed. BBier Lighting is a manufacturer-neutral lighting distributor that provides lighting services to China. We have experience in equipment transformation in many industries.
We are happy to complete the ROI calculation for your organization and guide you through the process of selecting and implementing energy-saving lighting solutions. BBier Lighting is also very familiar with various rebates and financial incentives to help your organization carry out LED retrofits.
