LED High Bay Commercial Lighting (UFO Lighting)

LED High bay light fixtures are usually used in spaces with ceiling heights higher than 15-20 feet.These fixtures are most commonly used in open warehouse areas where the illumination can reach to all open areas. UFO type high bay lighting produces high lumens while still being very energy efficient. LED fixtures are replacing old high-pressure sodium halide and fluorescent lighting. The reason for this change is to reduce energy consumption and to meet code requirements. Additionally, these lights offer a longer lasting life – up to 30 years.

High Bay LEDs have an array of LEDs strategically placed in the fixture to give a specific spread of lighting evenly over an area at a 110 Degree Beam Angle. These fixtures range from 13000LM – 42,000LM per fixture depending on the wattage. Various color spectrum is available from 3000k to 5000k. Quality fixtures come with a five year manufacturers warranty. At Penna Electric, we recommend Westgate UFO Lighting Fixtures or LTech.

Low Bay Commercial Lighting (Strip Lighting)

LED Low Bay Lighting Fixtures are usually used when ceiling heights are lower than 20 feet. These fixtures are commonly used in aisle ways when illumination is essential to reading labeling on your inventory. These diffuse the light, cutting down on the harsh reflections that lower ceilings can cause.Although low bay lighting includes UFO lighting fixtures, you may more commonly see low bay lighting as strip lighting.


Emergency Commercial Lighting (Egress Lighting)

Sometimes referred to as egress lighting, emergency lighting is designed to illuminate and identify hallways, stairwells and exits to facilitate a safe and orderly evacuation from a facility. Egress lightingshall be continuousduring the time that the conditions of occupancy require that themeans of egress be available for use, whereas emergency lighting ―shall be provided for a minimumof 1.5 hours in the event of failure of normal lighting.

At Penna Electric we install a combined system that fulfills the coverage andilluminance requirements for both egress and emergency lighting to meet all building codes and Title 24 Compliance.

Exterior Commercial Lighting

Wall Mounted and Rooftop Flood LED Lighting Fixtures
Wall mounted fixtures usually can be found alongside the exterior wall of a building under the eaves of the roof to provide lighting for walkways and parking areas. Rooftop Flood Lighting Fixtures are the same concept but are found mounted on the very edge of the roof also providing light in a much broader area. The installation of each fixture varies and must be installed with timers or photo cells to control the duration of illumination. Proper exterior lighting offers safety from break-ins and predators.
