The maintenance requirements for conventional lighting technologies like Metal Halide, Fluorescent, and High-Pressure Sodium (HPS) are high. The materials used in these outdated technologies are damaging to the environment and have short lifespans. In industrial operations, poor lighting is a major contributor to slips, trips, falls, and contacts with items and machinery. Industrial LED lighting provides intense, near-daylight illumination with more natural color reproduction, allowing for clear visibility of hazards without the use of auxiliary lighting such as flashlights. Because reliability is vital in tough and hazardous settings, superior vibration resistance, wide operating temperature ranges, and long life are required for harsh environments.
LED lighting does not require time to heat up like other lighting technologies. In the event of a power outage, some traditional fixtures can take up to 20 minutes to return to full brightness, posing an additional safety risk. The lifespan of industrial LED lighting is at least three times that of HPS or fluorescent fixtures, lowering the danger of injury that frequent maintenance poses to your workforce. With LED lighting there is no exposure to harmful materials. LED lighting contains no mercury or other hazardous elements that necessitate special handling.
