LED Lighting

What is LED Lighting?

LED stands for “light emitting diode.” This type of lighting is often brighter than other types, and it provides a very clear, clean light that is frequently used in stores and other areas where having a brightly lit location is important or necessary.

Why is it important to consider LED Lighting?

There are several reasons why a business would want to consider using LED lighting. These include:

Energy Efficiency

LEDs generally consume very low amounts of power, so they can be used for long periods of time without costing a lot of money. For businesses that have large stores, factories, or other locations, that energy efficiency makes a big cost difference.


The average LED lasts 50,000 to 100,000 operating hours or more. That is two to four times longer than fluorescent lighting, metal halide lighting, and even sodium vapor lighting. Additionally, this lifespan is more than 40 times as long as the average incandescent bulb that is typically used in both residential and commercial applications.

Light Quality

The quality of the light from an LED is different from other lighting sources. This light is clear, bright, and clean, so it does not cast harsh shadows or cause the glare that some other lighting options can give.

Low Maintenance costs

Having lighting with such a long lifespan leads to much lower maintenance costs in terms of labour and replacement parts. That saves money in two ways, since the parts do not have to be replaced as often and the company does not have to pay someone to maintain the lights as frequently.

Environmentally Safe

Unlike more traditional lighting solutions such as mercury vapor or fluorescent lighting, LED lights do not contain mercury internal to the bulb. Because of that, these lights are much safer to dispose of.


The cost of LED lighting has come down a lot recently, and now the initial investment in the lighting and the length of time it takes to get that money back in savings makes much more sense.

Comparisons of LEDs versus alternative lighting sources

To better understand why LED strip lighting and other types of LED lights are a good choice for commercial applications, it is valuable to compare these lights to other lighting options. Here are some things to consider:

LEDs have an extremely long lifespan relative to every other lighting technology option (including fluorescent lights).
LEDs are extremely energy efficient relative to every other commercially available lighting technology.
Fluorescent lights contain toxic mercury that LEDs do not have.
Fluorescent lights age significantly if they are frequently switched on and off, and LEDs do not.
Fluorescent lights require regular re-lamping and ballast replacement, and LEDs do not.
Metal halide lights have the longest warm-up period of any light on the market, as they can take 15 to 20 minutes to reach normal operating temperature. That means they need to be on for longer than necessary, and that you must anticipate when you need the light on. LEDs come on instantly.
Metal halide light bulbs last an average of 6000 to 15,000 operating hours and cost the same as LEDs which last far longer.
LEDs last up to five times longer than their metal halide counterparts.
An 80w LED provides similar light to a 400w metal halide light, so the LED is much more energy efficient for the light it produces.

Industrial LED Lighting

If your business is operating out of an industrial warehouse or store, you will want to consider an upgrade to industrial LED lighting. There are a number of reasons why this is important for you to address, including:

  • LED lights are now lower in price than they used to be, and that makes them comparable in cost to metal halide and other higher output lights on the market.

  • LEDs use so much less energy than other options that are available, and their energy needs are, on average, 4 times less than their metal halide equivalent.

  • LEDs, once they are properly installed, have zero maintenance costs that you have to worry about, and that will save your business money over time.

  • LEDs provide a better quality of light and have a full spectrum of colour contrasts, which is not something you can get with other lighting options.

To get started on making the switch to LED lighting for your store or industrial warehouse, reach out to us at Rotric today. We are here to help.

Office LED Lighting

If your business or work place is still utilising fluorescent lighting, then it is time to consider an upgrade to commercial LED lighting. Here are some of the main reasons why:

  • LED lights are now comparable in cost to their fluorescent counterparts, so the price of getting them installed should not stop you.

  • LEDs are more efficient than fluorescent lighting, so your costs will be less over time and you can enjoy a good light quality for less money.

  • LED panels provide a higher output of lighting lumens than fluorescent lights. That means you can install fewer lights per square meter of office space, when compared to fluorescent panels.

  • LEDs do not have any maintenance costs once they are installed, so they can be left alone without any added costs for owning them.

By reaching out to Rotric today, you can get your office started on some quality LED lighting that will be much more efficient and cost effective, as well as giving you a clear, clean, bright level of light to work with.
