LED Retrofit Kits
LED retrofit kits are energy efficient and cost saving alternatives to metal halide, high pressure sodium and fluorescent bulbs in commercial indoor and outdoor applications. The advantages of using LED retrofit kits include longer rate life, brighter light output and lower power consumption. For outdoor applications, LED retrofit kits are ideal replacement for HID lamps in shoebox fixtures, wall packs, post tops, bollards and canopy lights. LED HID retrofit kits also replace high bay and low bay fixtures for indoor applications like warehouses, stadiums and gymnasiums. On a more commercial indoor side, retrofits for fluorescent fixtures are used to convert T5 and T8 lamps in troffers and strip lights to energy saving LED fixtures. LED recessed can lights replace fluorescent PL lamps in recessed ceiling lights.
LED retrofit kits for HID are replacements for metal halide and high pressure sodium lamps in indoor and outdoor applications like warehouses, convention centers, parking lots, buildings, car dealerships and hazardous locations. Use LED HID retrofit kits for increased lamp performance with an average lifespan of 50,000 hours, higher efficacy rating and better CRI. LED HID retrofit kits replace 100 watt metal halide, 175 watt metal halide, 250 watt metal halide and 400 watt metal halide bulbs. LED retrofit kits are easy to install into existing E26 medium base or E39 mogul base sockets. These also have better cooling systems to preserve the rate life of the LED retrofit bulb.
LED retrofit lamps have different shapes and sizes based on the HID lamp being replaced. For LED bollard retrofit kits, LED post top retrofit kits and LED shoebox retrofit kits, use the 360° LED corn bulbs for illumination in all directions. For LED wall pack retrofit kits and LED canopy light retrofit kits, directional retrofit lamps are ideal for applications that require cutoff light distribution. LED high bay retrofit kits are ideal for warehouses that have high ceilings and require stronger light output, while LED low bay retrofit kits are better for parking garages and workshops. LED retrofit kits can also be rated as Class 1 and Class 2 explosion proof for hazardous locations like factories, oil refineries and power plants.
LED retrofit kits for fluorescent fixtures are flexible replacements for troffers and strip lights that do not require changing the entire fixture. Retrofit kits for fluorescent install directly into the existing frame, with only the fluorescent T5, T8 or T12 lamps and the ballast needed to be removed. Fluorescent retrofit kits either come assembled as a lens kit or as individual LED strip lights with external drivers. LED retrofit kits for troffers can replace 2x2, 2x4 and 1x4 troffers in commercial ceiling applications like hospitals, schools and offices. LED retrofit kits for strip lights can replace 4ft and 8ft fluorescent 1-lamp, 2-lamp, 3-lamp, 4-lamp and 6-lamp strip lights.
LED retrofit kits for recessed lighting replace LED, incandescent or fluorescent BR, PAR and PL lamps in housing cans for recessed ceiling lighting. LED recessed can lights require a new construction or remodel housing that goes inside the ceiling. The housing typically contains the driver while the recessed module only contains the light engine. 4 inch and 6 inch LED recessed modules are typically used for hotels, offices, bedrooms and living rooms. An alternative LED retrofit kit to recessed can lights is the LED canless downlight that already has the driver attached to the module and requires no recessed housing. LED canless downlights snap on to the ceiling and are ideal for shallow ceilings. Another alternative LED retrofit kit for recessed lighting is switching to LED surface mount downlights which are LED disk lights that can mount onto existing recessed housings.
