Industrial Lighting needs are very complex. Industrial facilities are very large, so as to accommodate all the equipment and space for each process that takes place. On top of that, most facilities have high ceilings so as to accommodate industrial equipment such as cranes, stacking shelve units, manufacturing equipment, etc. Achieving optimal in these facilities is thus a really huge headache. As a result, most industrial facility owners resort to using high-power light fixtures.
Unfortunately, in the past, the only high-powered light fixtures that were available for industrial lighting needs were high wattage metal halides and fluorescent lamps. And with industrial facilities requiring lights to be on for several hours a day, this meant incurring very heavy power bills. On top of the high power bills, these metal halides and fluorescent lamps had a host of other problems, for example taking really long to achieve maximum brightness.
Luckily industrial facility owners do not have to experience these industrial lighting problems anymore due to a new and more efficient lighting technology – LED Lighting. Ever since LEDs were introduced to the market, they have become very popular with consumers, especially those in the industrial sector. Below, we look at the top reasons for their ever-increasing popularity.
