LED Canopy

What are Canopy Lights?

Canopy lighting and parking garage lighting are terms synonymously used to describe both outdoor lighting and indoor lighting that is commonly surface, pendant, or recessed-mounted to a structure’s ceiling, soffit, or overhang. This type of lighting is generally used to provide illumination to areas for vehicle and pedestrian use. There is a wide range of fixture sizes, shapes, and mounting types that can be categorized as lighting for parking garages or canopies.

LITELUME manufacturers and supplies LED Garage Canopy Light fixtures in 40, 70, and 80 watts. Different wattages are recommended based on ceiling height and size of space; however, all of the outdoor garage canopy lights offered by LITELUME are suitable to replace old incandescent lighting.

For small areas, these lights are ideal for 12-foot ceilings and spaces with dimensions of 10-feet by 10-feet. For larger spaces, such as big warehouse, manufacturing facilities, large garages, or hotel canopies, LITELUME recommends going the route of 70 or 80-watt LED garage canopy light fixtures.

Where are Canopy Light Fixtures used?

Canopy lights are typically used in outdoor spaces that include gas stations, walkways, parking garages, and overhangs.

LED canopy lights are the best lighting solution for your outdoor lighting needs. Whether you want to make a customer feel safe pulling into your gas station at night or want your building to look bright and welcoming to visitors, canopy lighting is your best bet. LED canopy lights can also act as a security measure by providing ample light for security cameras and illuminating entrances and exits, especially if you are directing vehicles.

LITELUME offers traditional canopy lights and energy-efficient LED canopy light fixtures in both surface-mounted and recessed versions. For commercial office entry canopy areas, LED recessed cans make great canopy lights. With a wide variety of affordable canopy lighting options at LITELUME, it’s easy to find the best lighting solution that suits your needs.

Canopy light fixtures are used in industrial locations, such as warehouses and manufacturing facilities, to light up walkways and aisles, and they are used for residential purposes to illuminate garages, backyard spaces, storage areas and closets, and workshop areas.

Here’s a quick list of where we think LED Canopy Lights are best suited:

1. Small Garages or Carports

LED garage canopy lights can be multi-purpose for small garages and carports. The bright light produced by LED garage canopy lights can help deter potential intruders from entering properties they are not welcome. The lights can help people navigate their way through or within garage and carport areas, as well.

2. Outdoor Walkways, Areas, and Canopies

For those late summer nights when people aren’t quite ready to call it a night just because the sun sinks down, LED Canopy light fixtures are perfect for outdoor walkways, backyard canopies, and yards around houses. With the installation of LED garage canopy lights, families can continue entertaining family and friends outside into the late hours of the night—let the kids play outside a little longer or cook a BBQ at 9 p.m. Just because the sun is gone, it doesn’t mean that summertime outdoor recreation has to stop!

3. Storage Areas, Small Warehouses, and Indoor Closets

For small spaces around the home, such as storage rooms and closets, or warehouses with ceilings lower than 15-feet, 40-watt LED garage canopy lights deliver quality illumination that mimics natural sunlight. 40-watt LED garage canopy lights provide consistent bright light so every nook and cranny in small spaces is filled.

4. Large Garages and Hotel Canopies

LITELUME recommends purchasing 70-watt LED garage canopy lights for buildings with ceilings that are 15 to 25 feet high. 70-watt LED garage canopy lights can replace HID warehouse fixtures up to 250 watts.

5. Manufacturing Facilities and Big Warehouses

For spaces that have ceilings between 25 and 35 feet, 80-watt LED garage canopy lights are strongly advised. If the lights are used to illuminate warehouse aisles, then the lights should be installed every 20 or 25 feet in order to ensure sufficient lighting. 80-watt LED garage canopy lights are suitable to replace 400-watt HIDs.
