For both businesses and commercial applications, there are many different lighting options available. LED panels are one such option, but they are particularly suited for use in offices, retail settings and other places of business.
What Are LED Panels And Where Can They Be Used?
LED lighting panels are exactly what they sound like. They are light panels that are installed in place of other ceiling squares or tiles to act as a light source for rooms. LED panels are becoming more and more popular across office blocks, retail outlets, such as supermarkets, and other commercial sites as an alternative to old neon or halogen equivalents.
There is almost no limit to where LED lighting panels can be used. The most common usage for lighting panels is in corporate office premises. LED lights are typically used here to create bright, clear light so workers can remain productive throughout the day.
The most common size of ceiling tile used in these spaces is 600x600mm. If you buy your luminaires in this size, you should have absolutely no trouble installing them in your premises. What’s more, most LED panel lights come in 1200x600m size. These cover two ceiling tiles so are perfectly suited for generate plenty of light. Most panels are also available in the much smaller 300x300mm format, but these are typically not used as full scale lighting options. Instead they are often incorporated into architectural features or for lighting walls.
LEDs have a number of significant advantages over traditional filament based and halogen bulbs. For starters, they are incredibly energy efficient. For example, a halogen bulb will use heated tungsten filaments to generate light. However, only 10% of the energy being put into a halogen bulb will be converted into light. The rest is given off as heat. Comparatively, LED lights produce light by running an electrical current between electrodes. This means that, as there is no heating involved, an LED light can turn up to 80% of the energy inputted into light. When installing many LED panels in your office or commercial premises, you’ll notice your energy efficiency will sky rocket.
LED light panels are also incredibly long lived. The average life of a halogen light bulb is between 2,000 and 6,000 hours. An LED light will last anywhere up to 80,000 hours. And rather than popping or breaking like normal bulbs, LED lighting will continue to generate light after their initial lifespan – just at a lower level.
This longer lifespan and energy efficiency also means that you can avoid having to replace your light panels as regularly. It also means you will save money on electricity bills and replacement panels!
