Five types of commercial lighting

When choosing the right light for your commercial setting it can be difficult to know what’s right. There are many types of different luminaire fixtures available from an array of suppliers. Here’s some support on the top 5 commercial LED luminaire fixtures and what they are best used for.

Commercial lighting is predominantly used in spaces such as offices, hospitals, institutions and government buildings. A long LED lifespan, better durability and improved energy saving are the benefits that most customers demand.

Commercial lighting can cover a range of indoor, outdoor and emergency applications.

1. LED downlight

The term downlight describes a light fixture that is installed into a hole in the ceiling. It is called a downlight because the light shines down from the ceiling. When the light is produced from an LED, as opposed to another light source, it is called an LED downlight. The Bandera Pro is a range of quality commercial LED downlights, incorporating premium components and the latest technology with a choice of PMMA opal or Micro Prismatic diffuser and IP44 or IP65 option. The modern aesthetics make fittings like the Hilclare Bandera Pro suitable for many applications.

2. Recessed

Recessed lighting fixtures are circular holes, most commonly found in ceilings, that house an illumination source. Unlike chandeliers, pendants or flush mount lamps, which are designed to be visible, recessed lamps provide light without a visible fixture.

The ISLA advanced Gen 2 recessed panel is ideal for a commercial setting. UGR<19, TPa rated LED panel offering excellent light distribution suitable for ceiling mounting. Recessed, surface mounting or suspended installation.

3. Surface or suspended LED

A surface or suspended LED batten has the tailored installation ability to fit lights at any height, ceiling fixture or design of your building. This allows the lights to be mounted in the ceiling or suspended from it, such as the Crompack.

4. Linear

LED Linear Lighting is simply the use of many ‘Light emitting diodes’ packaged together in a long, narrow housing to create a strip of light. This simple concept revolutionised the way we light spaces.

5. Other types

Don’t forget to consider the other smaller groups of lighting; Laserline, Lay-in, desk lamp, track, task
