Find the Best Lighting Output for Your Ceiling Height

When choosing lighting for your warehouse, retail location, or other high ceiling application, it can be difficult to judge which high bay lights will work best. A big factor to consider is how high the ceilings are in your commercial space. As a general rule, the higher the ceiling, the more lumens needed. So, how many lumens should you be looking for per fixture?

This rule applies to both UFO high bay lights (the round ones) and linear high bays (the rectangular ones). Shop our selection of High Bay LED UFO Lights or our Linear High Bay LED Lights, available for lighting both open spaces and aisles. We have models in both categories that suit ceiling heights from 15 feet to above 40 feet. 

LED Expert Tip: If you have a space with a variety of ceiling heights, a good solution is to choose high bay lighting that is wattage adjustable. The adjustability allows for different height zones to have different lumen levels while the fixtures remain consistent throughout. Check out our adjustable options: Field-Selectable LED High Bays.
