HOW TO CHOOSE LIGHTING FOR YOUR GARAGE
2019-11-28



Garage lighting can apply to both residential garages for cars or home supplies, or commercial garages with built-in shops and workstations. There is a variety of LED fixtures and mounting options to choose from for different types of garages. Garages typically need a well diffused light to cover a wide space, especially for professional garages that have larger size and more equipment. Garage lighting can either be suspended from the ceiling so they can be reached easily, or mounted directly for lower ceilings. The lower mounting height is better for direct lighting and consistent light distribution.


LED Garage Lights


LED garage lights and LED shop lights for home garages and professional garages are low-mounted indoor ceiling lights that can either be surface mount or suspended mount. Suspended mount LED garage lights use a pendant or a hook and chain or cable to provide better overhead lighting in work areas. Surface mount LED garage lights use a junction box or surface mount bracket and are typically used for residential garages with low ceilings to provide light for storage cabinets and closets. LED indoor fixtures that can be used as LED garage lights include LED low bays, LED strip lights, LED shop lights and LED wraparounds.


LED shop light fixtures replace traditional fluorescent fixtures containing T8 and T5 lamps. Depending on the type of garage, most fluorescent linear lamps can be replaced by LED strip lights or LED shop lights. LED residential garage lights come in 2 feet, 4 feet and 8 feet linear strip lights. LED wraparound garage lights and LED garage strip lights are commonly used in home garages, sheds, storage rooms, utility rooms and closets for surface mount installation. LED shop lights are also used if suspended mounting is more applicable. Use residential garage lights for single car or multiple car garages.




Professional garages may need higher lumen output and more fixtures because of their bigger sizes and more space. Some professional garages also have higher ceilings that require the light to be suspended from a pendant or chain. Aside from LED strip shop lights, LED wraparound shop lights and LED workshop lights, some commercial garages use linear and round LED high bay garage lights and LED low bay garage lights for greater light output. Professional garages include small warehouses, workshops, auto shops and mechanic shops.





LED Garage Lights For Professional Garages


Professional garages need LED garage lights that provide more lumens and have more flexible mounting options. Because of their bigger size and area, commercial garages often use suspended mount LED shop lights for more direct light at a lower mounting height. Linear LED workshop lights can be anything from 2ft LED garage lights, 4ft LED garage lights and 8ft LED garage lights. Round LED high bays and linear LED high bays are also used as LED garage lights. Choose from surface mount or suspended mount LED high bay garage lights, LED workshop lights, LED wraparound shop lights and LED strip shop lights. Commercial garages include auto shops, mechanic shops, small warehouses and professional workshops.




LED Garage Lights For Residential Garages


LED garage lights for home garages have less lumen requirements and lower mounting heights. LED residential garage lights are surface mount from the ceiling, but suspended mount installation is also common. Choose from 2ft LED shop lights, 4ft LED shop lights or 8ft LED garage strip lights as the usual types of LED garage lights. LED garage ceiling lights can be installed in single car or multiple car home garages, storage rooms, utility rooms and sheds. Choose among LED shop lights, LED wraparound garage lights and LED garage strip lights for indoor ceiling lighting.
