What are LED panel lights?

LED panel lights are shaped like panels as their name would suggest. They are frequently being used to replace fluorescent lights, which have a much shorter lifespan and can cost much more to use. LED lights offer a lifespan of up to 30,000 hours and can cut power consumption by as much as 45% despite offering a higher, brighter standard of light. They are commonly used in warehouses, offices, hospitals, and schools as well as domestic environments.

These energy-efficient lights can also be installed quickly and simply. The reason for their high efficiency is that they are manufactured using integrated SMD (surface-mounted diode) technology. This enables them to deliver powerful light for much less wattage than traditional fluorescent lights.

LED panel lights can be around 40% cheaper to run than traditional lighting and can heighten productivity and comfort, which makes them ideal for work environments. They are commonly used to replace fluorescent tubes and tray lighting. They can be installed as part of new build projects and can be retrofit. Some LED panels are built on rear-lit technology, with more modern side-lit, super-slim options offering wide beam angles.

In what sizes are LED panel lights available?

LED panel lights are available in various shapes and sizes. 600x600mm panels are amongst the most popular panels as they can replace 600x600mm fluorescent troughs. Other popular square panels include 300mm x 300mm and 1200mm x 600mm. Square panels are commonly used in smaller offices, hospitals, and schools.

Rectangle LED panels are often installed in larger spaces such as open-plan offices, warehouses, and schools. Amongst the most common rectangular panel sizes are 1200mm x 300mm, 1200mm x 600mm.

How do you connect an LED light panel?

If you have a suspended ceiling, you can simply replace a ceiling plate or an inbuilt fluorescent light with an LED panel by removing the old plate or fixture, adding the panel, and connecting it to the mains.

LED panels can also be mounted on flat surfaces via a mounting frame. The LED driver can be placed on top of the panel. Some panels can be installed with suspension sets. These include cables that enable you to hang the panels from your ceiling. LED panels can be installed in many internal spaces.

Which LED panel is best for which application?

Square LED panels tend to be best for small offices, hospitals, and schools. Rectangular panels are often installed in larger offices, schools, and open-plan offices, whilst round panels are a good match for spaces like corridors and domestic homes.

Are LED panels dimmable?

LED Panels lights are dimmable, but they are reliant on dimmable drivers and most drivers packaged with LED panels are non-dimmable. Depending on your chosen installation, both mains dimming and low voltage dimming are options for enabling dimmable LED panels. Mains have the benefits of easier installation and less potential installation costs but have a smaller maximum amount of LED panels it can support. Low voltage dimming, on the other hand, has a higher capacity and more consistent performance, however, this comes with the drawback of the installation being more complicated and extra labour required to conceal wiring.
