LED Lighting Solutions for Small Business, Commercial and Industrial
Lightitech Solutions uses only the best LED technologies available to ensure the ultimate in reliability, energy efficiency and overall improved lighting conditions.
With their unique design and performance characteristics—such as directional light emission, compact profile, superior optical control, energy efficiency, breakage resistance, reduced maintenance, and long life—LEDs are well suited to a variety of lighting applications. LED lighting technology is an ideal solution for most any commercial, industrial, and many spaces are dramatically transformed visually through the proper use of LED lighting products, systems and technologies.
LED (light-emitting diode) lighting is a rapidly changing work in progress; everything you knew about LEDs last year is probably out of date today. The great potential of LEDs’ efficiency and long life has caused manufacturers to devote considerable resources to improving manufacturing processes and costs, while new applications continue to appear. They emit light in a specific direction using both light and energy more efficiently. Other features include:
- No infrared (IR) or ultraviolet (UV) emissions: Unlike other forms of lighting, LEDs intended for lighting do not emit IR or UV radiation
- Immediate energy cost savings
- Rapid cycling capability: Traditional light sources will burn out sooner if switched on and off frequently, but LED life and lumen maintenance is unaffected by rapid cycling
- Long life
- High shock resistance: LEDs use no breakable glass or filaments, so they are resistant to vibration and well-suited to locations where breakage is an issue
- Low early failure rates
- High color efficiency: An individual LED chip emits light in a specific wavelength (color), which makes them efficient for colored light applications
- Low energy consumption
- Size: LED lights can be very compact and low-profile, an advantage where space is at a premium
- Reduced monthly operational costs
- Outperform CFLs in the Cold: LED performance actually increases as operating temperatures drop
We provide LED lighting solutions for commercial, industrial, and high-end residential applications.
LEDs at Work
A relatively fast and inexpensive way businesses can take advantage of LEDs’ efficiency is by replacing incandescent exit signs, which operate continuously, with LED exit signs. LED exit signs also offer lower maintenance, and they are typically brighter and easier to see in an emergency than comparable incandescent or fluorescent lights.
LEDs are also being used in outdoor channel signs to reduce energy and maintenance costs. Strings of LEDs can take the place of neon as well, and lighting manufacturers continue to create new ways to use LEDs in signage.
Applications for LED Lighting include:
- 24/7 lit areas – parking garages, warehouses, manufacturing and cleaning facilities, stairwells, outdoor lighting
- Transportation – roadways, driveways, parking lots, garages, walkways, bridges, tunnels, subways, airports, transportation terminals
- Industrial and Commercial Buildings – offices, retail, restaurants, schools, hospitals, marinas, commercial kitchens, factories, warehouses, construction sites, factories
- Environmental; well-suited for indoor and outdoor installations because it can withstand temperature and weather extremes
- Specialty Applications; emergency, general and decorative lighting, in particular, color-controlled LED lighting modules

Selecting the best lighting system for a facility is not as simple as choosing a light source that delivers the most light for the fewest watts consumed. More important than the wattage of a lighting system is the ability to see well and perform tasks in the space. Several factors contribute to an efficient lighting design:
- Energy Efficiency: Total system wattage compared to the existing lighting system. Energy-efficient lighting is not necessarily effective lighting
- Lighting Uniformity: The ratio of the highest light level in the space compared to the lowest light level. Select a lighting system that delivers the closest maximum-to-minimum ratio possible. Uniform lighting throughout a space make it easier to see, even at lower overall light levels
- Color Temperature: The color of the light source being installed, as compared to the existing system. Choose a light source with a cool color temperature to better see in the space
- Lumen Depreciation: The decrease in the amount of light produced by a lighting system over time. Choose a light source that has consistent light output over lamp life
- Color Rendering (CRI): The ability of a light source to make colors appear natural. The higher the CRI, the more colors look true to life. High CRI lighting sharpens the visual acuity in a space
- Controllability: The ability to increase energy savings by using lighting control systems effectively
