The complete guide to LED panel lights
- 13 May, 2015
Why choose LED panel lights?Super-efficient LED panel lights are the recommended replacement for antiquated, inefficient fluorescent lights, which are still used in businesses, offices and homes across the country. LED panels have a longer lifespan of up to 30,000 hours, and reduce power consumption by up to 45%, while delivering a better quality of light. Also, LED panel lights are like-for-like replacements for fluorescent tube and tray lighting, making installation quick and easy.
Where are LED panel lights used?Their superior efficiency and performance makes LED panels a particularly popular choice for office spaces, retail units, schools and hospitals. As well as retrofit, they can also be specified in new-build applications.
Why are LED panel lights more efficient?LED panel lights use integrated SMD (surface-mounted diode) technology, as opposed to fluorescence or filaments. This helps to produce powerful, high quality light at a fraction of the wattage (energy). For example, an 40W panel light - which can be used to replace 4 standard 18W T8 fluorescent tubes - will instantly cut energy use by 32W, while still delivering a brighter light.
What options do I have with LED panels?There are new super-slim panelsavailable that are side-lit, and with wide-reaching beam angles. These models offer a more modern, high performance alternative to older panels that often use rear-lit technology. Panels sized at 595x595mm are consistently best sellers because they’re designed to replace standard 600x600m fluorescent troughs.
