Commercial LED area light fixtures are efficient, durable, and long lasting. They are also designed to be versatile enough to fit your specific needs. However, even the most versatile commercial LED area light fixture requires a mounting system that will support its weight and ensure it stays securely in place. There are more types of mounting options for these light fixtures, including:
The Slip Fit Mount
A slip fit mount is one of the easiest ways to secure an LED fixture to a structure. It’s a simple, threaded connection that allows you to connect the fixture directly to an existing pipe or conduit without having to worry about drilling holes or using special tools. This makes it ideal for places where you don’t want holes drilled into walls or ceilings and want something quick and simple.
U Bracket Mount or Flood Mount
When it comes to commercial LED area light fixtures, you can choose from two types of floodlights: U bracket floodlights or trunion floodlights. The difference between these two types is that U bracket floodlights have a U-shaped base and trunion floodlights have a flat base. Both of these types of floodlights can be mounted on poles or directly onto walls using brackets.
Pole Mount or Direct Arm Mount
If you’re looking for an LED area light that can be mounted directly onto poles or wall brackets, then you should consider using the pole mount option or the direct arm mount option with your fixture. These two mounting options are designed specifically for use with commercial LED area lights so they’ll provide you with excellent stability while also allowing you to adjust the angle at which your light shines downward toward the ground.
Trunion Mount or Yoke Mount
Trunion mounts are typically used for recessed lighting projects where there is not much space between the ceiling and the bottom of the fixture. Yoke mounts are typically used for surface-mounted lighting projects, such as canopies or wall packs. The main difference between these two types of mountings is their ability to handle weight; triunions can hold more weight than yokes because they have three points of contact with the ceiling rather than two.
Conduit Threaded or Knuckle Mounts
Conduit threaded mounts are designed to fit over conduit runs in commercial applications like warehouses, manufacturing facilities and other indoor spaces with large open ceilings. They can be attached directly to a drop ceiling grid or through an existing conduit run in the ceiling itself. Knuckle mounts are similar but are designed specifically for use on flat ceilings such as those found in office buildings or retail stores.
Cable or Chain Mounts
Cable and chain mounts are the most common mounting options for commercial LED area light fixtures. These types of mounts are often used when the fixture needs to be mounted on a flat surface. The cable can be made from galvanized steel or stainless steel, which makes it durable and resistant to corrosion. The chain is made from galvanized steel and includes an adjustable hook that allows you to position the fixture where you want it.
When it comes to mounting commercial LED area light fixtures and retrofitting them, you want a reliable mount that will keep your lights in place. You also want a mount that will integrate easily with a truss structure. The right manufacturer will give you quality options for both. The possibilities are endless and only limited by your imagination. LED has already helped revolutionize lighting in commercial applications, so we thought it would be interesting to highlight how to truly maximize the value of this technology with a few simple mounting options.
