What’s the difference between an LED Troffer and a LED Panel?

LED panels are used to replace your existing fluorescent ceiling lights. They require less space due to their slim profile and straight edge.

LED Troffer Light Fixtures

The first generation of fluorescent troffers were a nightmare. The light output was low, the color level was unpleasant, the costs were way too high, and not to mention that excessive flickering. Today, the innovative technology of LED lighting has encouraged a switch to a high-performing and cost-effective alternative, which of course is the LED flat panel light manufactured by LITELUME.

What is an LED Back Lit Panel?

The LED panel is the fixture that is making the largest contribution to energy savings in the corporate sector. The switch from fluorescent louvered ceiling grid units to LED has become a mainstream migration process for commercial and residential applications, and growing rapidly thanks to tax breaks and other government incentives. LITELUME can help with identifying and calculating these incentives.

What’s the difference between LED edge-lit panel and LED back-lit panel lights?

Direct-lit and Edge-lit LED Flat Panels are becoming the modern choice for retrofitting ceiling lighting. These types of flat panels are particularly ideal for replacing in-ceiling troffer light fixtures, and they come in many common grid sizes like 1×4, 2×2, and 2×4.

New LED technology allows these flat panels to be very thin, down to a half inch. That means they can be mounted to walls and ceilings or suspended from cables. This new technology allows versatility that has not been available in the past, which means a modern design, look and feel for your office ceiling light fixtures.

Back-lit light fixtures

With Back-lit panel models, the light source is behind the panel and travels transversally through it like a box of random light. For a uniform brightness across the surface of the panel, you will need some distance between the light sources and the panel.

LITELUME manufacturers some of the highest-quality, UL Damp Location listed LED Back-lit light panels on the market. Light disperses evenly throughout the fixture and results in a predictable illumination, guaranteed.

Edge-lit light fixtures

In edge-lit models, the LED chips are arranged on the inner edge of the luminaire. The light is then bounced downwards through a diffuser. Edge-lit was the most popular format in the LED panel category during the introductory stage of the LED lighting market; however, there has been a parting of the ways between models in terms of efficiency. The light source is, as you may have guessed, on the edge and around the panel. Light enters the panel on the side and then distributes across the surface of the panel.

Scratches or textures will emit the light in different ways, and at LITELUME, our lighting logistics exerts make sure to check the quality of all our light fixtures before they ship out. When panels are designed properly, edge lighting means the whole thing is “flatter” (requires less depth) and still gives sufficient brightness across the surface of the panel.
