LED Round High Bay Lighting – Are There Benefits?

by | Jun 16, 2022 | 0 comments |

High bay lighting is commonly found in commercial and office settings. As technology continues to advance, LED high bay lighting is exceeding HID fixtures in popularity.
LED high bay lighting is energy efficient, produces a higher quality of light, and helps create a comfortable work environment. The LEDs also last longer than traditional HID high bay lighting, resulting in less maintenance and lower operating costs.
Switching to LED high bay lighting comes with plenty of benefits, but you also have to decide on the type of light fixture. High bay lighting is either linear or round and each type has its best uses.

LED Round High Bay Lighting vs Linear Lights

When you are deciding between the two types of LED high bay lighting you want to consider how the shape of the fixture affects the beam’s angle and size.
LED round high bay lighting produces a cone-shaped beam, giving you a more focused light. The light beam is generally around 120 to 90 degrees.
In comparison, linear high bay lights have a rectangular beam that works well in hallways and stairwells.
Like most types of lighting fixtures, both types of high bays also have a few downsides.
LED Round High Bay Lighting Drawbacks

  • The round fixture may not easily fit in narrow spaces like hallways

Linear High Bay Lighting Drawbacks

  • Installation is a little more expensive
  • You have fewer options when it comes to beam angles, limiting the fixture’s versatility.

Benefits of Round High Bay Lighting

Most of the parts are already installed, leaving only the fixtures that attach easily to your existing structures.

Slim Design
