Retrofitting Your Canopy Light
What Is a Canopy Light?
Canopy lights are ceiling mounted lights that are designed to hang tough against weather and unauthorized tampering. This makes canopy lighting ideal for indoor and outdoor use. The main difference between LED canopy lights and other surface mounted lights like down lighting and ceiling lighting is that LED canopy lights are suitable for wet locations.
Because of the LED canopy lights ability to withstand extreme temperatures and damp locations, they are ideal for garage, tunnel, corridor, warehouse, walkway, and stairwell application. Canopy lights are typically surface mounted to the ceiling between a minimum height of 8 feet and a maximum of 15 feet. Canopy lights also offer uniform lighting with a 120 degree beam angle in a slim fixture for mounting in areas with limited space.
