Commercial lighting indicates the light fixtures used in various properties such as offices, hospitals, supermarkets and other nor-residential properties. These fixtures are chosen based on their look and design as well as on the needs of the building occupants. Commercial lighting plans are developed by interior designers or architects, in collaboration with various electrical engineers.
Tubular fluorescent lights are common types of installations in commercial settings. They are attached into suspended ceilings and covered with a textured or frosted lens. Based on the amount of light needed in the building, fluorescent lights may contain from one to four bulbs. They are one of the most long-lasting and energy efficient options available to commercial users.
Metal halides are commonly found in industrial applications or warehouses. They are also known as high-intensity discharge (HID) lighting. They typically consist of a pendant ceiling with lenses and bulbs of varying sizes. These lights produce bright light in large quantities and they can illuminate large spaces. While high pressure halide lights are almost inefficient, there are low pressure sodium versions which are comparable to fluorescent lights when it comes to energy consumption.
Incandescent lighting is considered one of the oldest forms of lighting technology. They are used in desk lamps, recessed downlights and other fixtures. Bulbs built using this technology are very inefficient and have a short lifespan. Since these bulbs have wide availability and low upfront costs, they are frequently used in commercial settings. Incandescent bulbs also produce light that is very similar in brightness and colour to natural sunlight, making them popular with consumers.
Halogen lamps are frequently used in various outdoor commercial applications. They are commonly used for flood or security lights, and also in stadiums and sport arenas. They produce a very white, bright light, and are twice as efficient as incandescent bulbs. There are smaller halogen bulbs which are also used as display lighting or spotlights in retail stores.
Compact fluorescent lighting uses a traditional fluorescent technology, but it relies on a shorter internal ballast which allows the users to install the bulbs in different fixtures. They produce almost the same energy efficiency as tubular fluorescent fixtures, but usually a more white, natural lighting is produced. Compact fluorescent lights are frequently used to replace incandescent bulbs in lamps, downlights and other task lighting applications.
