What is The Lifespan Of A High Bay Light?
First let’s remember what a high bay light is. A high bay light is a powerful type of light fixture or source of light mainly used inside large buildings with higher ceilings, high bay lights can be large fixtures, or nowadays not so large ones especially if they are LED panels, but very powerful fixtures which can produce hundreds of lumens per watt, and that can be installed at 20ft or higher ceilings.
High bay lights are mainly used in commercial and industrial applications such as warehouses, shops, working shops, store malls, storage buildings, gymnasiums, churches, large community centers, etc.
Traditional high bay lights such as fluorescent ones have a lifespan of 25,000 to 30,000 hours of operation producing only half the amount of lumens LED High Bay Lights can. Fluorescent High Bay Lights come with higher maintenance costs because they need ballasts to stabilize their light; they need special disposal procedures because they contain toxic mercury and their lifespan can be decreased by repeated on/off cycles.
Metal-halide lamps were used for general lighting purposes; Metal-halide lamps produced only half the amount of lumens LED high bay lights currently can produce. Also Metal-halide high bay lights only had a third of the duration or lifespan compared against LED fixtures.
Actually metal-halide lamps should have been phased out by 2017. At this point, all metal-halide lamps should be replaced. Additionally Metal-Halide lamps have lower energy efficiency, they produce about half of the amount of lumens LED fixtures can. Metal-halide high bay lights had a lifespan of around 20,000 hours of operation, and higher maintenance costs compared to LED High Bay Lights.
LED High Bay Lights are more durable and have a longer lifespan compared to other traditional older similar sources of light. For example Hyperlite’s Hero Series High Bay Lights and Will Series Linear LED High Bay Lights have a lifespan of over 50,000 hours of operation and come with a 5 year warranty against quality related problems.
By using Hyperlite’s LED High Bay Lights you can reduce your electricity bills and maintenance costs and in every case get much more illumination for the same amount of power or Watts. The five year warranty against quality related problems, will cover any malfunction or issue you might encounter while using your LED High Bay Lights, you would only need to keep your order number and contact Hyperlite’s after-sales-service to get the correct replacement.
