The LED One Distribution team would like to share information on the advantages of LED vapor tight lighting. Are you considering LED vapor tight lighting for a new project? Or upgrading your existing lighting? This might help you to understand the benefits of using this type of lighting.
Vapor tight lighting is used in harsh environment applications in both indoors and outside. The fixtures are sealed and use gaskets to protect the lighting. You’ll find them in high humidity, wet, dusty, oily and extreme cold areas.
Better Lighting Performance
Multi-point designs in LED Vapor Tight Fixtures spread light evenly over an area. Another advantage of LED lighting is the color of the lighting provided. LED lighting has a wide range of colors available. This is also referred to as Correlated Color Temperature. This gives you the ability to control the perceived visual brightness.
The color of light is important where high-performance lighting is needed. Examples are manufacturers or food processing companies. Controlling lighting color is also important to outdoor retail companies. They want customers to see their products and signs clearly. With good lighting customer’s feel safe and comfortable after darkness arrives. Good lighting has an impact on businesses open during the evening and nighttime hours.
LED vapor tight lighting also provides a better lighting experience for employees. Better lighting improves employees performance. It also reduces accidents. Slips and falls can become very costly when customers or employees get hurt.
Save Money on Maintenance
LED tight vapor lighting is made for harsh conditions. It will last 2 to 4 times longer than conventional fluorescent, metal halide or sodium vapor lights. Turning lights off and on frequently does not reduce the lifespan of LED lighting. In those applications, you’ll find LED lighting reliable and have a long life. In extremely cold conditions LED lights will last longer than conventional fluorescent lighting.
Conventional lighting fixtures will get cloudy from dust, bugs and debris accumulate. Sealed tight vapor fixtures will stay bright, clean, and look professional. The fixtures are well built to prevent rust and require very little maintenance.
Reducing Energy Costs
A 4 foot LED Vapor Tight Fixture will normally use anywhere from 12 to 55 watts. Compared to traditional fluorescent lighting this is a savings of 40% to 60%. The wide range of wattage variation shown is because there are quite a few variations available for LED lighting fixtures. A building that converts 100 fixtures over to LED vapor lighting can expect to save up to $5,000 a year.
Commercial refrigeration facilities use significant amounts of energy for their refrigeration. Metal halide and high-pressure sodium bulbs not only use a lot of energy, but they also create a lot of heat. LED lighting not only reduces energy usage, but also run cool so they won’t add heat to the refrigerated area.
