Find the Right High Bay LED Shop Lights for Your Space

When getting the correct configuration of lighting for a space, the number of lamps and tube length is crucial. At Warehouse Lighting, we offer options with multiple lamps in one high-performing fixture. While tube-style lighting is great for a range of applications, we also have rounded fixtures perfect for tighter spaces in need of abundant lighting. Whether looking for round or tube-style fixtures, find it all right here with our vast selection of industrial LED shop lights.

What Are LED Shop Lights?

LED shop light fixtures are overhead lights that are much brighter than fluorescent shop lights, and they can include sensors which cause automatic illumination when you enter a room. They are used to illuminate any area in which a task is performed such as your workshop. The right shop light fixture will depend on a few factors such as the available space, the light spread required and the mounting preference (whether walls or ceiling). Performing certain tasks with proper illumination requires that these industrial LED shop lights have the following qualities:

  • High color rendering (a color rendering index (CRI) rating of at least 80)
  • High color temperature (CCT) of 4000K or 5000K
  • High lumen output, which is dependent on the amount of space or fixture mounting height used for the given task
  • Can be surface mounted or hung with hooks, chains or cables

Below are just a few examples of LED shop lights:

Where Are LED Shop Lights Used?

LED bulbs contain no mercury and are safe to use compared to fluorescent bulbs, which are hazardous when they break. Commercial and industrial LED shop lights can be used for both commercial and residential applications. You can also retrofit LED shop lights with one of our LED retrofit kits. Examples include garages, studios, workshops, utility rooms, sheds, storage rooms, auto repair shops, retail stores, grocery stores and small warehouses. Below are some examples of how LED shop lighting can be used:

How long will LED Shop Lights Last?

Commercial LED bulbs have the highest ratings, lasting between 50,000 to 100,000 hours and 8-10 times longer compared to CFL incandescent bulbs or fluorescent tube lamps. The exact duration of your LED bulbs will depend on a few factors. LED light bulbs do get hot. LED lights have a heat sink in the base that dissipates heat, allowing the LED bulb to stay cool and provide longer life.

What Are the Different Types of LED Shop Lighting?

LED lights for shops come in a wide variety of shapes and styles of fixtures to suit specific light requirements and coverage needs. Among these shapes and styles are linear strip lights and linear high bays, round low bays and high bays, UFO low bays and high bays, grid-mount low bays and high bays, and wet-rated shop lights.

How Many LED Shop Lights Do I Need?

The number of LED shop light fixtures needed is determined by the:

  • Size of the space
  • Ceiling height
  • Building usage

For a ceiling height of 10 feet or lower, we recommend LED shop lights that are around 100 watts and deliver 10000-12000 lumens. For ceiling heights of between 12-20 feet, high bay lights in the 125-175 watt (12000-21000 lumens) range are most commonly used. In areas requiring higher light levels and less glare such as low mounting heights, Reflectors and lenses can be added to our UFO fixtures.

As the ceiling height increases, the wattage and the lumen output should also increase:

  • 8-10 feet = 80-100 watts (10,000-12,000 lumens)
  • 12-20 feet = 125-175 watt (12,000-21,000 lumens)
  • 18-25 feet = 200-300 watt (22,000-35,000 lumens)
  • 20-30+ feet = 300-400 watt (35,000-47,000+ lumens)

What Are the Benefits of LED Shop Lights?

LED lighting technology has developed to the point that it can overcome almost all of the drawbacks of other lighting technologies. The following are just some of the incredible benefits of LED shop lighting.

  • LED shop lighting quality is superior in terms of color rendering, color temperature and lumen output (compared to wattage used).
  • LED shop lights have a much longer lifespan which means they need to be replaced less frequently than other types. This is particularly important when it comes to high bay lighting, which requires lifts or scaffolding to reach the fixtures.
  • While LED shop lighting is more expensive initially upon the point of purchase, you'll save more money in the long term due to the fact that they consume much less energy than conventional lights. This reduces utility costs and energy use over time.
  • LED shop lights have a more concentrated light beam, which allows the light to be directed down and out toward the floor or task area.
