Which are the best lights for a shop?
If you are planning to build a new shop or you already have one, and specially if it will have high ceilings, the best option are high bay lights. I you are wondering what a high bay light is, a high bay light is a source of light intended to be used in higher ceilings, bay lights and high bay lights can be installed at 14ft to 21ft high or higher.
Currently high bay lights have been improved by the use of latest technology advancement which is the incorporation of LED chips, compatible LED components such as drivers, power packs, controllers, etc. LED stands for light emitting diode. The advantage of this new technology is the improved and much increased energy efficiency, LEDs are up to 90% more energy efficient compared to traditional and old incandescent light bulbs. Higher energy efficiency when speaking about lighting and specially speaking about LEDs means less heat, more light and lower costs, mostly lower electrical utility bills. Other important advantage of LEDs is they need less maintenance, fewer replacements that means less transportation costs, less garbage, less pollution, of course this helps better care for the environment and the planet. LEDs are small in size so they become very flexible and can be adequate for much more applications specially for compact and smaller types of fixtures. So, with the same amounts of electrical power one can get much more brightness.
For shops most people prefer 5000K color temperature. “K” in this case is the abbreviation for Kelvin, this shows the perceived temperature of lights perceived by the sight. Hero Series is available in 4000K and 5000K, the 4000K color temperature means a warmer color of light, at 5000K the light color is perceived as “true white” also called “cool light”. Warmer tones such as 4000K are preferred for homes and family spaces, while cooler K temperatures are preferred for commercial applications.
