The Light Emitting Diode (LED) has managed to take an entire industry by storm with its features: minimal maintenance costs, high efficiency and the falling costs of luminaries are contributing factors to trusting the reliability of LED luminaries.

The span of LED Fixture designs has also greatly improved in the last few years - our industry now has solutions for different businesses, different sectors, and different placements. One such solution, which is now being used widely around the world, is the LED High-bay.

Light quality and energy efficiency in commercial settings with high rise ceilings, warehouses for example, is crucial to employers due to safety of employees and long-term costs. LED High-bays offer both of these, in addition to benefits like control sensors for dimming the light, which leads to further cuts in energy.

Now that we know more about LED high-bays, let's take a look at the top 5 factors to consider when contemplating which LED High-bay to buy for your warehouse:


  1. Lumens - The amount of lumens required for any area, based on factors like ceiling height, safety of workers and the actual amount of light required in that area, is to be decided first. The LED versions of high-bays consist of a huge range of wattage and lumens they deliver, including dimmable versions. It is therefore very easy to find the right required model.
  2. Energy Efficiency - The number of lumens you get per watt is another important factor to consider; the new generation models are designed to provide 120 lumens per watt, making them highly efficient and hence being cost-effective.
  3. Lifespan and Warranty - Most LED luminaries come with a warranty between 1-5 years. We have models ranging between 3 to 5 year warranties. The lifespan of a LED luminary is higher in comparison to conventional high-bays (e.g HIDs). Due to their higher lifespan, choosing LED luminaries results in lower maintenance costs - a combination with the warranty on it results in great servicing of the product.
  4. Color - Being pivotal in the safety of the workplace, the color of the high-bay should be chosen carefully. High glare from luminaries would be harmful to employees. The decision of choosing a certain color should be done considering the work environment. Should you buy high glare luminaries, it would be recommended to buy dimmable models to ensure safety.
  5. Fixture - There are different type of fixtures to choose from - the traditional ones are linear high-bays, which come with a separate cover - but nowadays, the most popular ones are the UFO high-bays. These high-bays distribute light without use of reflectors and can be used all around the warehouse (and even gymnasiums, sports arenas, and other industrial avenues). Customers have the option of buying one with a beam angle of either 90 degree or 120 degree. Their sturdy body (with a heavy duty heat sink) makes heat dissipation uniform, hence increasing the life of the product.

    In our upcoming catalog, we would like to introduce you to our complete range of UFO high-bay fixtures. Starting from 3 and up to 5 years of warranty and IP65 rating, it is perfect for any type of application, especially high rise ceiling areas, be it warehouse or showrooms. The two types of lens are particularly designed to create a optional beam pattern of 90 degree and 120 degree which distributes light to the desired area, rendering minimal wastage of light.

The V-TAC Generation Models of High-bays comes with a five year warranty, using MEANWELL power supplies. They can also be dimmed using a 1-10V dimmer switch, enabling energy efficiency during downtime or for the safety or workers. Furthermore, they deliver over 120 lumens per watt, making your pay back period less than a year.

The other models of UFO high-bays which deliver 80 lumens per watt, are aptly priced, so that switching to LED does not require a big budget plan. They are perfect for budget lines and in places where the lumen requirement is not so high.
