Information on Drop Ceiling Lights

  • There are two types of drop ceiling lights: recessed fluorescent and LED troffer lights. These options are made in a standard of three sizes: 1 x 4, 2 x 2, and 2 x 4. The right size for the application will depend on the size of the space and how widespread the light beam needs to be for proper illumination.
  • Troffer lights are designed in two basic versions depending on their ceiling fit - recessed grid mount and surface mount. The main difference here is stylistic, but these options also fit into ceilings differently, so make sure you pick the option that matches your space best. These options are available in options for recessed, surface or grid mount lighting applications.
  • The advantage of using recessed troffers is that they provide uniform superior fluorescent and LED lighting in conventional illumination like office, retail spaces, school, universities, airport lounges, indoor spaces, government facilities, libraries, and many more applications.

Once you have narrowed down your choice to the correct model for your application, there are many different styles to help you get a look that matches your overall style well. Voltages range from 120 to 480 volts, so you can find the right hardware for your system. With various designs utilizing varying quantities of lamps, you can get the proper amount of lighting for any location whether you need to illuminate a small hallway or a large warehouse floor.

Recessed fluorescent and LED troffers are a very popular choice for many commercial and industrial applications because they provide powerful, even lighting to any amount of space without causing eye fatigue or strain. Powerful light diffusion ensures every inch of space is lit up without a lot of glare.

Troffer Commercial Lights are designed in a few basic versions depending on their ceiling fit:

  • Suspended Troffers and Flat Panel LED Lights
  • Recessed Grid Mount 1 x 4, 2 x 2 and 2 x 4
  • Surface Mount

They are further classified into different types which fall into one of the above mentioned ceiling mount category:

  • Lensed Static (Recessed and Surface Mount)
  • Parabolic lens 18 cell, 24 cell, 32 cell (Recessed and Surface Mount)
  • Center basket (Recessed and Surface Mount)
  • Eco-T Recessed Troffer Lights (Surface Mount)
  • Edge Lit Flat Panel Troffer Lights (Surface Mount)

Troffer Lighting Fixtures are distinguished on basis of various identifying factors such as:

  • Total watts depending on the lamp or array used
  • Type of Lens: opaque, parabolic, clear or specular
  • Type and Number of Lamps used: LED or Fluorescent, T8, T5 or T5HO
  • Voltage: 120, 208, 240, 277 or 480v
  • Type of Mount: recessed in a grid ceiling or surface mounted
  • Presence or non-presence of a mirrored or white internal reflector

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Drop Ceiling lights?

Drop ceiling light fixtures are square or rectangular in shape and are used to illuminate indoor spaces that placed in what are typically referred to as drop ceilings, T-bar ceilings, grid ceilings or suspended ceilings.  They can be laid into a ceiling grid in which they are recessed and sit above the grid but can also be suspended or surface mounted. Light is focused down and out from the fixture. Here are some examples of drop ceiling lights:

Where are Drop Ceiling lights used?

These fixtures are typically used in commercial and industrial applications. Examples include offices, conference rooms, classrooms, showrooms, hospitals, warehouses, auditoriums, hallways, libraries or retail spaces. Below are examples of how drop ceiling lights are used:

What are the different types of Drop Ceiling lights?

The two main types of drop ceiling lights are troffer lights and flat panel lights.  Troffers utilize fluorescent tubes, LED tubes or integrated LED arrays. Flat panels have integrated LED arrays only.

 Both types of fixtures typically come in three different sizes, 1 foot by 4 foot (1x4), 2 foot by 2 foot (2x2) and 2 foot by 4 foot (2x4). These variable sizes allow for flexible installation in ceiling grids and T-bars. The 1x4 and 2x2 sizes can be made to more easily fit into narrow or tight spaces.

 Troffers and flat panels utilize lenses, diffusers, baskets, parabolic louvers and reflectors to manage glare or brightness and evenly distribute light.

  • Lenses are designed to direct light into a beam pattern which makes it more focused. They are typically clear or frosted.
  • Diffusers scatter (or spread) the light which reduces the sharpness of shadows and softens the light. They are often made of acrylic or polycarbonate.
  • Baskets, usually placed in the center of a troffer are used to focus light upwards which then bounces downward off of a reflector towards the ground making it more dispersed and with less glare. They also provide a pleasant aesthetic appearance.
  • Parabolic louvers contain “cells” which help to provide a more direct light output and are also used to provide a more appealing appearance, like baskets do.

What are the benefits of LED Drop Ceiling lights?

 Drop Ceiling LED lighting technology has developed to the point that it can overcome most all of the drawbacks of the technologies previously listed here.

  • Lighting quality is superior in terms of color rendering, color temperature and lumen output (compared to wattage used).
  • They have a much longer lifespan which means that the lights need to be replaced less frequently than other types.
  • Although LED lighting is more expensive initially upon point of purchase, costs are more than made up in the long term due to the fact that they consume much less energy than conventional lights. This saves on utility costs over time. They also don’t waste energy emitted as heat.
