When choosing lighting for commercial and retail settings, there are some pretty basic options that have become the norm. These lighting options have become the standard for retail and commercial lighting because they offer superior illumination, long-lasting performance, and are easy to install and maintain. The most popular option is commercial wrap lights. The reason commercial wrap lights are great for this type of setting is because their linear prism design has been created to maximize light while lowering electricity costs. With a design that features a closed structure along the sides of the lens for optimal distribution of light, these lights are great for illumination without the glare. This type of lighting is ideal for large spaces when installed in enclosed ceilings. The amount of light provided and energy-saving design makes them great for a variety of settings, including commercial and retail settings, government facilities, hospitals, military bases, educational locations, and many more.
Information About Commercial Wrap Lights:
- They are easy to install and keep clean. With commercial wrap lights, you install them by way of surface mount methods which means you avoid a huge hole in the ceiling. This means installing it is easy on you and the ceiling without a lot of extra work. They are also easy to keep clean since the fixture is enclosed and mounted flush against the ceiling to avoid dust collecting on top.
- LED lamps make them an appealing option. With this solution, you can install LED lamps which offer a brighter, cleaner output with no disturbances or flickers. Best of all, LED offers the best efficiency with a higher lumen output for a lower wattage consumed to save on utility costs. LED is also incredibly long lasting while offering a heat-free operation.
- They offer more light with a wide scope of illumination. Since the lens wraps around leaving more of the lamps exposed, you get more illumination on the sides of the fixture. Most fixtures only offer either up light, down light, or a mixture of both, but this option offers a bit of side light in addition to the downlight which makes it ideal for creating bright illumination.
- With several sizes available, finding the right one is easy. This is a fixture available in sizes ranging from 2 foot to 8 foot to ensure you get the right one for the needs and size of your space. When lighting a smaller space, choose a 2-foot length. For a larger space, consider the 4-foot or 8-foot options for ample illumination.
Our wide selection of commercial wrap lights come in two basic versions. The first option is narrow base wrap lights which have a tapering profile as the main component of their design. They are best for stairwells and corridors. The second option is wide base wrap lights which have a wider or semi-recessed profile. These are a good choice for replacing outdated lighting fixtures with a more modern version. When shopping for commercial wrap lights, it is important to keep in mind there are certain identifying factors to be aware of, such as structure length, watt capacity, type of wrap coverage, voltage strength, type of reflectors, ballast type, and type of lamp used. We offer a variety of options for this reliable lighting in the three common sizes of 2-foot, 4-foot, and 8-foot wrap lights.
Our inventory features variations in all the above-mentioned factors to make sure you get exactly what you need. Whether looking for 17-watt narrow base lights or 34-watt wide base lights, we have you covered with our expansive inventory of the best in lighting. Many models shown offer warranties to ensure your satisfaction. Find the perfect lighting solution for your business today!
Frequently Asked Questions
What are Wrap Lighting fixtures?
Wrap Lighting fixtures are linear lights that are typically mounted to a surface (usually a wall or ceiling) and have a lens that wraps around the light source to distribute the light evenly in all directions. Here are some examples of what wrap lighting fixtures look like:
Where are Wrap Lighting fixtures used?
Wrap Lighting fixtures are used in hallways, offices, stairwells, parking garages, basements and laundry rooms.
What are the different types of Wrap Lighting fixtures?
Wrap Lighting fixtures typically come in 2-, 4- and 8-foot lengths. They are usually available in two basic styles. One style has a narrow base which has a tapering profile as a component of their design and is ideal for stairwells and corridors. Another style has a wide base with a semi-recessed profile and is ideal for offices or other larger indoor spaces. Both of these styles can come in a “low-profile” body style. These fixtures can come with an integrated LED array as the light source or they can be designed to accept tubes. If the fixture was built to accept fluorescent tubes, it will have a ballast. A fluorescent fixture can be retrofitted with ballast compatible LED tubes. If the fixture was designed for LED tubes, there will be no ballast and will use single end power or double end power tubes.
Wrap Lighting fixtures can come ready for a number of different accessories, such as: motion sensors, internal or external battery back-ups and they are often dimmable for use with a low-voltage dimmer.
What are the benefits of LED Wrap Lighting fixtures?
LED Wrap Lighting fixtures offer many benefits. These fixtures are instant-on when powered up, they do not flicker or need to warm up. The light is uniform and tends not to degrade over time. LED lights do not generate as much heat as fluorescent lights. They have a very long life and are more efficient than other lighting options. If using a LED tube ready fixture, the bulbs also have a longer life and will not require as many tube replacements or ballast replacements. This reduces maintenance and labor costs.
The LED light source in Wrap Fixture is directional (even with certain LED tubes). The light is directed where desired. With traditional wrap fixtures, the bulb throws off light in 360 degrees. It can be directed with reflectors, but that is inefficient and luminescence is decreased.
LED Wrap fixtures are not made with hazardous materials. With the typical fluorescent fixture, both the tube and the ballast need to be disposed of following strict federal guidelines for mercury, lead and other heavy metals.
LED Wrap Lighting fixtures are often dimmable with the use of a low voltage dimmer. This is a feature that is not often found on non-LED fixtures.
