As you know from the previous three parts of this blog, when a light fixture’s output equals 70% of its initial output, it is deemed unacceptable. This will require the owner to replace the light in order to provide a safe workplace.
The major cause of LED fixtures losing light output faster than others is low-quality components. As with any engineered product, the manufacturer must make choices - and compromises - on the level of quality of materials and components to be used for the finished product in order hit the cost targets. This is no different when manufacturing LED fixtures.
When purchasing LED lighting, read the warranties carefully. Most warranties do not cover when an LED fixture does not meet its advertised performance, leaving you in the dark, light-wise and warranty-wise. Unlike most, Flex Lighting Solutions provides a true and transparent 5-year lumen maintenance warranty.
Are you looking to purchase or upgrade your lighting? Before you do, make sure you are familiar with the basic parameters so you don’t become confused and end up with the wrong lighting solution. These basic parameters apply to both traditional and modern LED lighting solutions.
