Commercial lighting has many similarities to residential/home use lighting but typically is more basic and designed to light larger areas more efficiently. Sometimes if can make sense to use a commercial lighting fixture in your home as well if you are trying to light a large area and looking for a more basic design. The majority of commercial lighting is moving to LED based over other types due to its longer life and lower power consumption. Here you can easily find our commercial light reviews and pick the one that is best of you and your budget.
Types of Commercial Lights:
Recessed Troffer Lights
Similar to recessed lighting in homes these lights are installed in the ceiling and direct light downward. They also typically have very low heat emission which helps keep cooling costs down.
Again similar to track lighting in homes these lights can be adjusted individually on the track to direct light where it is needed.
These lights are typically mounted on a steel frame and can be moved as need to provide light for construction workers or electricians.
