LED batten lights have come along way in the last few years with the technology of LED, now batten lights have loads of different options as oppose to every batten being 2 x 36 fluorescent battens. LED battens now are much more streamlined with a slim and minimalist look but yet still put out the same brightness, this is great because 4 foot fluorescent battens are a real eye saw but now with LED battens they can manipulate the fittings to give a much cleaner and less commercial look. The best thing about battens is they are super practical with a real bright light and wide beam angles. When buying your LED upton batten lights there are a few considerations to make so in this blog I will run through what questions to ask before buying and our favourite best selling LED general batten lights.
IP Rating - The IP rated refers to the light being suitable for indoor or outdoor. If your application is outdoors then go with IP66, this is a high rating which will protect from water and dust. If you are buying for indoor you can still go with a IP66 as it will still protect from dust and physical impacts, otherwise an IP20 is fine as well with most batten still sealed.
LED - There are still loads of fluorescent batten and tubes out there with people still replacing the tubes and ballasts, this is a bad idea as you can now buy for T8 LED direct replacement tubes. LED Battens use 70% less power and last 10 times longer than fluorescent tubes, LED tubes also now perform better in brightness and imitate a fluorescent tube without you knowing the difference. So always go with LED for all these reasons. LED tube lights are also much safer and better for the environment with fluorescent tubes containing mercury.
