Are you looking to purchase or upgrade your lighting? Before you do, make sure you are familiar with the basic parameters so you don’t become confused and end up with the wrong lighting solution. These basic parameters apply to both traditional and modern LED lighting solutions.

They are the most dependable, deliver higher performance and enable a longer LED life thanks to their superior heat dissipation.
Many LED fixture manufacturers contradict themselves by enthusiastically explaining how their drivers have a built-in surge suppression but then later recommend an additional surge protection. So, do you really need it?
