Information About LED Panel Lights

Whether you're starting a new project or you need to retrofit existing light fixtures, is your source for flat panel LED lights. The right lighting solution can make any space brighter and even result in higher productivity.

These lights are ideal for a range of applications and settings, making them a solid choice.

In offices, warehouses, stores and homes around the country, LED panel lights are quickly outpacing fluorescent lights. There are a number of reasons for this. While fluorescent lights are initially cheaper to buy, LED panel lights are longer-lasting and more energy-efficient, meaning you'll save money in the long run. And because they don't need to be replaced as often, you'll save on maintenance costs, too. Their slim appearance makes LED panel lights perfect for smaller spaces or anywhere you want a sleeker look. Start outfitting your space today!

Types of Flat Panel LED Lights

Deciding what type of flat panel LED lights to install will depend on the size of the space you're trying to illuminate. Flat panel lights come in three different sizes to allow for adaptable installation in ceiling grids:

In addition, you also have a choice between two configurations for your flat panel LED lights:

  • Edge-Lit Panels: LEDs are placed on the sides of the panel to allow for a thinner profile. This type of flat panel LED light is more expensive and uses a bit more power than other types.
  • Back-Lit Panels: In this type of LED panel light, the LEDs are placed at the back of the frame rather than at the edge. This enables the LEDs to shine directly through the diffuser. Because there is no light guard, the illumination does not need to be directed. Also there is no glare because the diffuser smoothes out the light. Back-lit panels can be manufactured faster and at less expense than edge-lit panels–another reason why they have become so popular.

Benefits of Flat Panel LED Ceiling Lights vs. Fluorescent

LED ceiling lights have many advantages over their fluorescent predecessors. These benefits include:

  • Superior Energy Efficiency: A 12-watt LED light emits the same lighting as a 15-watt fluorescent bulb, meaning LED bulbs use 20% less power.
  • No Harmful UV Rays: Unlike fluorescent bulbs, LED lighting doesn't produce UV light. Its light emissions fall in the visible light range, making it easier on the eyes and resulting in fewer headaches to workers and others who use this lighting. UV light can also cause a fabric's color to fade, another reason to choose LED panel lights for residential spaces.
  • Longer Lasting: LED panel lights can last up to 13 times longer than their fluorescent counterparts, translating to reduced maintenance costs.
  • More Durable: LEDs are less prone to breakage and don't contain mercury. Fluorescent bulbs are more fragile and pose a health risk if broken because of their mercury content.
  • More Effective: Flat panel LED lights are directional, putting the light where you need it. Fluorescent bulbs radiate light 360 degrees, with only a small percentage hitting the area directly below.
  • No Flickering: As fluorescent lights reach the end of their life, they will begin to flicker. LEDs do not.
  • No Bulkiness: Flat panel LED ceiling lights don't require extra hardware to direct the light, meaning they enjoy a slim, modern appearance.

What Are LED Panel Lights?

Flat panel light fixtures are used to illuminate indoor spaces and are typically found in drop ceiling grids, hanging from a standard ceiling – or you can surface mount flat panel LED lights.

Flush-mount flat panel fixtures are wonderful for reduced, suspended ceiling cavities. The lighting that LED flat panel lights produce tends to be even and very easy on the eyes.

Where Are Flat Panel LED Ceiling Lights Used?
