WORCESTER, Mass., Feb. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Access Fixtures, a leader in commercial and sports lighting, has announced the production of a new 158w LED high bay that uses 66% less energy than a 400 watt metal halide (MH) high bay, yet has equivalent light output. The LEDs in the high bay are rated LM70 at 100,000 hours. Over the course of 10 years, the LED high bay is expected to reduce operating cost by $2,385.86. In many instances, the payback is less than 2 years. The 158w LED high bay is ideal for illuminating large indoor areas such as large retail applications, warehouses and sports facilities such as high school gyms.

"LED light sources now provide superior lumen output in many of Access Fixtures' most popular luminaires, enabling an energy-efficient and long-lasting alternative to even metal halide," said Access Fixtures CEO, Steven Rothschild. "The new LED high bay uses only 34% of the energy as its metal halide equivalent while providing all the benefits of LED."

Compared to metal halide, LED is long-lasting, energy-efficient, requires minimal maintenance, and has a higher color rendering (CRI) of 70+. With higher CRI, Kelvin and directed light, the LED high bay luminaire will appear to emit more light than the 400w metal halide. The LED will emit more light than the MH after 40% of the metal halide lamp life. Also, this LED luminaire has instant on/off capabilities, enabling it to be compatible with occupancy sensors. Dimming for applications such as daylight harvesting is available as an option. Access Fixtures LED high bay luminaires are assembled in USA with USA and imported parts.
