The market for LED warehouse lighting and commercial lighting is a growing one, with an approximate value in the region of GBP 6.2 billion in 2020 and an expectation that there will be a growth rate of around 21.5% by 2025. All larger commercial buildings, industrial plants and warehouses, and those buildings with high ceilings have a requirement to use specialised lighting setups. This is in order to ensure that they are providing sufficient illumination for the people that work there to do their jobs efficiently and safely. 

The industry standard shows a huge preference for LED lighting in these circumstances over the previously popular choice of fluorescent lamp, and with good reason. Commercial LED lamps that can be used in these types of buildings come in several different varieties, and two of the most popular for use in larger spaces that have relatively high ceilings are high bay lighting and low bay lighting fixtures. 

Whilst the two types of lighting do share a number of similarities, for example they are both mounted onto the high ceiling itself, there are also a number of differences. It is these that can make all the difference when it comes to choosing the most appropriate lighting for your requirements. These differences are very important, making the two different types of lighting specialised for the unique situations that they can be used in. 

One of the biggest differences between the two is the height of the ceiling in question. High bay light fixtures are used to illuminate ceilings with heights of between 20 – 45 feet high whilst low bay as the name would suggest is used for lower ceilings. High bay light fittings are hung from the ceiling using either a hook, chain or pendant fitting or they can even be hung directly from the ceiling in a similar way to a troffer light. Due to the nature of the building that this type of lighting is used in and the height at which it is hung, high bay lighting is usually above one hundred watts in order to offer sufficient lighting to the building where it is being used. 

This means that despite the height at which this type of lighting is placed, it will still provide the appropriate amount of light for your commercial premises to allow employees to undertake their roles without any compromise to their safety as a result of insufficient lighting. Many of the types of commercial properties where this lighting is used not only have higher ceilings and larger spaces but also have fewer windows so do not benefit from much ambient lighting. LED high bay lighting is a great option for commercial properties because it not only helps to maximise energy but can also reduce carbon emissions.
