LED 2×4 and 2×2 Lay In Fixtures

led2422layinlightingLED technology provides facilities owners and managers with an effective solution for saving on energy costs. This technology is a more energy efficient source of lighting than traditional sources such as fluorescent lights. When compared to the T-12 florescent fixture, 2X4 type, energy savings can be up to 70%. Savings of up to 40% is achieved when LED is compared to the 3-lamp, T-8 2X4 fixture.

The LED fixture type has a 60,000-hour life expectancy, along with a 5-year warranty. It outperforms traditional fixtures of fluorescent types in both maintenance costs and energy efficiency.

There are other positive aspects involved with using LED fixtures. One is the ability to use daylight harvesting, occupancy sensors and other automated devices to reduce energy consumption by up to 40%. And, this is done without decreasing the lifetime of the fixture.

With newer fluorescent lighting types, the life and ballast of the lamp is shortened after just about 6 on/off cycles a day. These fixtures also require additional wiring in order to have dimming abilities. LED fixtures don’t require special wiring to have the ability to dim, which adds to energy savings. This helps keep the costs of installation down, as well as the amount of energy being used daily.
