Optimize Your Space with LED Linear High Bay Lighting

Upgrade your commercial or industrial space with energy-efficient and long-lasting LED linear high bay lighting from Our LED high bay light fixtures provide exceptional illumination and energy savings for warehouses, manufacturing plants, factories, gymnasiums, and other large indoor areas.

What are LED Linear High Bay Lights?

Designed to replace traditional fluorescent and metal halide (MH) lights, LED linear high bays are ideal for use in spaces with high ceilings. These LED fixtures deliver bright and uniform illumination while using a fraction of the energy of traditional lighting options. They also use integrated LED diodes instead of replaceable lamps, greatly reducing maintenance costs.

LED linear high bays are available in three different types: standard, selectable, and rotatable. Standard fixtures have a static color temperature and output, while selectable fixtures allow you to select from several preset color temperatures or outputs. Rotatable linear high bays have panels that rotate, allowing you to aim the light output where it is need most.

Some linear high bay lights come with motion sensors than can be field installed in seconds. Other "sensor ready" fixtures have integrated ports that allow for compatible daylight harvesting and motion sensors purchased separately to be installed later.

Versatile Light Distribution Options

LED linear high bay lights can have narrow, medium, or wide light distribution patterns to suit your space's layout and ceiling height. Narrow and medium (Type 1 or Type 5) beam angles are ideal for aisle lighting or higher ceilings, while wide distribution fixtures provide uniform illumination for open floor plans.

Mounting Options

Our linear LED high bays are designed for suspension mounting to accommodate various ceiling heights and ventilation needs. Some fixtures require minimum suspension distances, ensuring proper heat dissipation for optimal performance. We also have linear high bays that can be surface mounting with compatible brackets (sold separately).

Tips for Selecting LED Linear High Bay Lights

When selecting a linear LED high bay, make sure to compare the lumen output of the LED fixture compared to your current high bay lighting. This is a better indication for which fixture is right for you instead of just going by wattage equivalent.

Also, be sure to check the color temperature before making a decision. A lower number Kelvin means the light is warmer, closer in color to incandescents, which is not be the best choice for commercial spaces. A higher number Kelvin means the light is cooler, closer to blue. 4000K fixtures are ideal for enhancing productivity and reducing eye strain, while 5000K fixtures improve overall visibility.

Some LED high bays can be dimmed to 10% when paired with a compatible 0-10 Volt dimmer. Check the product description and specifications, or give us a call for help picking the right high bay fixtures for your application.

Linear LED High Bay FAQs

Have some questions about linear high bay lights? Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get about LED linear high bays.

What are linear high bay lights?

  • LED linear high bay lights are LED fixtures designed for illuminating areas with high ceilings. Like all LED technology, LED high bays offer improved energy efficiency over traditional lighting solutions.

What are the advantages of using linear LED high bays?

  • LED linear high bay lights offer multiple benefits, including energy efficiency, longer lifespan, better light quality, instant on/off capabilities, reduced maintenance costs, and more uniform light distribution. They are also typically more compact and lightweight compared to traditional high bay lights, making them easier to install and handle.

What distinguishes linear LED high bay lights from other types of high bay lights?

  • Linear high bay lights have either rectangular or squarish shape depending on the size, unlike UFO high bay lights which are round. This linear shape allows for better light distribution and coverage in large open spaces, making them particularly suitable for applications like warehouses, manufacturing facilities, retail spaces, and gymnasiums.

What is the difference between LED low bays and LED high bays?

  • LED low bay fixtures are suitable for areas with ceiling heights of 12 to 20 feet. LED high bays, on the other hand, can be used with ceilings 20 to 45 feet high.

Do linear high bay LED lights have replaceable bulbs?

  • No, LED linear high bays use integrated LED diodes so there are no lamps to replace.

Can linear LED high bays be used in high-ceiling environments?

  • Yes, linear LED high bay lights are specifically designed for high-ceiling environments. They provide powerful illumination for spaces with heights ranging from 15 feet to over 50 feet. With their high lumen output and wide beam angles, they can effectively cover large areas with bright, evenly distributed light.

Can linear LED high bay lights be dimmed or controlled for energy savings?

  • Many linear high bay lights are dimmable and compatible with various lighting control systems, such as occupancy sensors, daylight sensors, wired dimming systems, or networked lighting management systems. These dimming and control capabilities allow for energy savings by adjusting the light output according to specific needs or preferences.

What is the lifespan of linear LED high bay lights, and do they require much maintenance?

  • LED linear high bay lights typically have a long lifespan ranging from 50,000 to 100,000 hours or more, depending on the specific model and usage. They require minimal maintenance compared to traditional lighting options. However, it's advisable to periodically clean the fixtures and remove any accumulated dust or debris for optimal performance.

What are the considerations for choosing linear LED high bay lights for specific applications?

  • When choosing linear high bay lights for specific applications, factors to consider include the required light output, beam angle, color temperature, efficiency ratings, dimming capabilities, warranty, and the overall quality and durability of the fixture. It's also important to ensure that the selected linear LED high bay lights are suitable for the environmental conditions of the space where they will be installed.

Are there any specific certifications or standards to look for when selecting linear LED high bay lights?

  • To ensure the quality and safety of linear high bays, it's advisable to look for fixtures that have certifications from recognized organizations such as UL (Underwriters Laboratories), ETL (Intertek), DLC (DesignLights Consortium), Energy Star, or equivalent certification bodies depending on your region. These certifications indicate that the product meets specific standards for performance, efficiency, and safety. Fixtures that meet DLC Standard, DLC Premium, and Energy Star may also qualify for local or state rebates.
