High bays lights are typically used in ceilings ranging from 20-40 feet above the floor, such as in warehouses and industrial applications. Low bays, however, are used for ceilings less than 20 feet above the floor, like in retail operations, grocery stores, and workshops. Low bays typically use less lumen output since they’re closer to the ground, whereas high bay use more lumens since they’re higher up and need to compensate to reach all necessary areas and eliminate shadows. And keep in mind, the angle of the reflector lens depends on the placement and height of the light.
Converting a 400-watt metal halide high bay to a 324-watt fluorescent can provide as much as 19% on energy savings. If metal halide is converted to an LED high bay, that number increases to 65%, with three times the life expectancy. Not only do LED high bays save money, but they also have a high CRI, bringing out the true colors of everything underneath their rays.

High Bay LED Lights produce a bright, even light that won’t fade over time. They feature a 50% energy savings over linear fluorescent high bays and 60% compared to metal halides. High bays cast directional light right where you need it, making it so you don’t have to buy multiple fixtures to get the job done. You’ll find them in warehouses, retail operations, and gyms, to name a few places.
We recommend using our indoor lighting layout tool. It models a fixture’s light output in a custom-sized room. It’ll tell you the number of fixtures you’ll need to reach whatever level of illumination you’re going for.
High Bay LED lights are used in factories, warehouses, airport hangars, municipal facilities, and school/university gymnasiums.
Different types of high bay LED lights include metal halide (MH), high pressure sodium (HPS), fluorescent, and LED.
If using a chain, disconnect the power supply. Loosen the screws on the junction box to open the cover and retrieve the wires. Connect black wire to the live wire, the white wire to the neutral wire, and the green wire to the ground.
You can figure out how high your high bay lights need to be by looking at the number of lumens they deliver. In general:
22,000 to 35,000 lumens = 20-30 feet
35,000 to 47,000 lumens = 31 – 40 feet
47,000+ lumens = 40+ feet
You’ll also want to keep an eye on the distance to keep between high bays you install. For example, if you have a 10 feet ceiling, you’ll want to keep high bays 12-15 feet apart. More suggestions:
20-foot ceiling = 15-19 feet apart
30-foot ceiling = 19-29 feet apart
40-foot ceiling = 30-40 feet apart
