7 Reasons to Upgrade Your Paint Booth to LED Lighting

LED lights have grown in popularity over the last few decades — and for a good reason. They last longer, save energy and are better for the environment. In addition to shops, offices and warehouses, LED lights can offer significant advantages in a paint booth.

Here are seven reasons why it may be time to upgrade to LED lamps in your paint booth.

1. Easy Integration

LED Lamps can be easily integrated into any new or existing Global Finishing Solutions® (GFS) equipment — without having to replace the fixtures. These include inside access and corner paint booth light fixtures, as well as general purpose light fixtures.

Retrofitting is as simple as changing out the tubes! No rewiring is required because the LED tubes use the existing electronics, making it easy to upgrade your paint booth or other finishing equipment.

2. Energy Savings

LED T8 Lamps offer significant energy savings — up to 40 percent* when compared to traditional fluorescent 32W T8 systems. Lower energy consumption allows for short payback periods, making it more cost-effective to upgrade to LED lights.

*Actual savings depend on your system configuration.

3. Sustainable

LED Lamps emit virtually no ultraviolet or infrared light and contain no mercury, allowing for non-hazardous waste disposal. Waste is also minimized when switching to LED lights, since the tubes can be installed in existing light fixtures.

4. Glass-Free

You no longer have to worry about dropping and shattering your lights! LED Lamps are glass-free, creating safer working conditions in your business.

5. Instant On

No need to wait for your light fixtures to turn on — LED T8 Lamps turn on instantly at full luminosity, with no flicker or buzz.

6. ETL Listed

When switching over to LED lights, existing GFS linear light fixtures maintain original ETL listing since there is no need for rewiring and they use the existing electronics. New GFS light fixtures with LED lights are also ETL listed.

7. Long-Lasting

LED lights last longer than traditional fluorescent bulbs, providing up to a 36,000 hour life span that eliminates the need to frequently replace the tubes. Work worry-free in your paint booth with the confidence of a three-year warranty.

LED T8 Lamps from GFS are the ideal energy-saving choice for your paint booth or other finishing equipment. Not only do they save energy, they are also a more sustainable and overall safer choice for your business.
