Your customers demand the latest in LED technology for their workspaces and you want to deliver.
LED Troffer panels are rectangular or square lights that are designed for modular dropped ceilings or ceiling grids. Traditionally, these types of fixtures were used with fluorescent T12 or T8 bulbs, but now you can get Troffer panels with LED capability. These can also be referred to as recessed Troffer lighting fixtures.
They are available in different sizes having more brightness and lumens than ordinary light panels. When these panels glow, they emit perfectly uniform light throughout a variety of indoor lighting applications. Available in either 2×2 or 2×4 configurations shipped for free direct to your door, these panels are also backed by our 5-year limited warranty.
You are probably familiar with the hundreds if not thousands of fluorescent lighting tubes we see each day in commercial facilities. These tubes, while popular, do come with their own set of issues. First, they don’t last nearly as long as LED lights. The traditional fluorescent tubes last about 10,000 hours while the LED Troffers last about 50,000 hours.
Unlike fluorescent tubes, the lumens in LED lighting are able to maintain a longer lifespan and don’t need to be replaced nearly as often as typically lights. This makes them highly energy efficient and a good financial choice for many companies.
Where are LED Troffer lights used?
They are currently used for residential lighting as well as entertainment venues, office spaces, retail locations, hospitals, schools, military buildings, and transportation facilities.
Since they are primarily associated with task lighting, they are recessed in the ceilings to give a uniform illumination across a work or display space. There are usually several Troffers in an area so that the lighting is even and distributed over a wide area. This is critical for workers who are on computers all day or reading papers to be able to have clear and uninterrupted light that doesn’t cause glare and interrupt productivity.
What are the benefits of LED Troffer lighting?
Economical and longevity
They are economical as they have low power consumption. It has been determined that they maintain 70% of light after they are used for over one hundred thousand hours.
Customers prefer LED Troffers over fluorescent Troffers because they don’t emit radio waves and are free of mercury. They also don’t have any lead and carbon dioxide emissions which makes them ideal for safety and environmental applications.
Troffers work with a dimmable switch with a range from 0 to 10V. This allows your customers to be able to throttle their usage in areas where 100% lighting is not always required. Less usage equates to additional savings.
Low maintenance costs
LED Troffer lights are easy to install for your crew and can fit into just about any ceiling. Additionally, they don’t require as much maintenance as traditional fluorescent bulbs.
You can buy these LED lights with peace of mind as they come with a limited 5-year warranty.
LED Troffers are made with sturdy components and are durable. They can withstand shocks and vibrations and are resistant to heat and other weather conditions. Some of the same components are used in traffic light fixtures and construction site lighting.
Future of Troffer LED lighting
LEDs have many advantages over traditional fluorescent lighting in that they are associated with low power consumption and reduced costs. They are cool to touch and can be turned on and off many times without shortening the lifespan. They can be configured to emit specific wavelengths and offer better quality light than ordinary light bulbs. Fortunately, the continuous improvement in LED technology has led to reduction in prices that helps with the objection of higher up-front costs.
