Employers love LED flat panel fixtures because their crisp and even white light can help boost productivity by reducing headaches and eye strain. You will love them because they don’t cost ten arms and a leg.
Flat panels can be either edge lit or direct lit. In a direct lit flat panel, the light source emits directly from the back of the panel. They're typically a bit thicker, at 3 to 4 inches. Edge lit flat panels, however, illuminate from the sides of the panel.
Since they’re easy to clean and maintain, you’ll find them in places like fast food restaurants, hospitals, and convenience stores. Their light is distributed widely, rather than focused, so they tend to be a tad easier on the eyes than their traditional fluorescent counterparts.
LED flat panels can help ease common ailments that employees under fluorescent lights tend to experience. This includes headaches, eye strain, neck pains, and lack of focus. Which is another reason why you’ll find these fixtures in places like hospitals, waiting rooms and even operating rooms. LED lighting can help calm nerves and provide a more soothing environment for patients, visitors, doctors, and staff.
Convenience and grocery stores also rely on flat panel lights to make everything underneath them look their best. Why, you ask? They often have a high CRI, which makes the colors of everything on those shelves pop, in even and clear light. The result? Potentially more money for your customer. Not to mention, inviting, bright light helps make a store look much more welcoming at night, which tends to attract more customers.
