Retail LED Showroom Lighting

While LED lighting products continue to win over the general population with their impressive performance and efficiency, many early adopters of the technology has been retailers, supermarkets and businesses that rely on optimal display lighting to sell products. Companies decide on going LED for their display lighting for several reasons.

Intensity and clarity:

Because LED lighting can achieve high lumens efficiently, it allows product displays to be brighter and more inviting without the excess heat that larger wattage lighting emits. Not all products display well in the same light, this is why many retail customers choose to go LED. In addition to intensity, LED lighting can be manufactured in a wide spectrum of colors, which can be custom matched to achieve the optimum display environment for your display application. Diamonds don't give off optimal sparkle if put under the lights that make meat look delicious and vice versa!

The bottom line:

For companies that focus on their display presentation, energy costs are usually one of the side effects of looking good. However, businesses that decide to retrofit to LEDs for their display enjoy significant energy savings every minute their displays are up and running!

Supermarkets, retail and energy heavy merchandise oriented businesses that keep a consistent lighting schedule will enjoy the biggest benefit. The average time it takes for an LED retrofit project to begin paying back is about 2-4 years (average 8 hours a day), but even faster if the lights are on longer! The savings in energy literally pays you back in savings until the initial cost is reached then the lights begin paying you every month by the savings on your energy bills. Compare it to solar, which pays back over 10 years and several times more expensive in initial investment.


One of the old problems with traditional high wattage display lighting is that it's HOT! LED lighting produces more lumens while staying cool, which allows vibrant displays that does not compromise your products, or bother your shoppers. Interestingly, cooler lights equal a cooler environment meaning less cooling costs during hot months of the year.
