LED panels are a type of lighting fixture made to replace conventional fluorescent ceiling lights.
LED troffers feature classic troffer housing with angled sides, while LED panels feature slim profiles with straight sides and edge to edge light. Troffers usually require a deeper recess for installation while panels are thinner and require less space for installation.
The beam angle of an LED bulb is the angular dimension of the cone of light from the lamp. It encompasses the central part of the beam out to the angle where the intensity is 50 percent of maximum.
For most household ceiling fitted applications, a beam angle of 30 or 40 degrees would be sufficient. For outdoor applications, a wider beam angle of 60 to 120 degrees is preferred to cover a larger surface area.
Color Temperatures range from warm white to cool white.
