LED Panels are typically used to replace older fluorescent style fittings. An LED panel is a full replacement of the fitting, this means that every component is brand new and can expect a lifespan of up to 100,000 hours! This is different to LED tubes being used to replace fluorescent tubes. In this type of upgrade the existing fitting is retained and while the ballasts are bypassed things like the tombstones are prone to failing long before the LED tube fails. Upgrading your fittings with panels ensures maximum lifespan and no maintenance to worry about.
Longevity aside, the other major benefit of quality LED panels is the fact that they are edge lit, are very low glare and have flicker free drivers. This means the quality of light they emanate is of a very high quality nature. So good in fact that the human brain cannot differentiate between this light and actual daylight which has been proven to increase productivity and morale. The look of the light that a good LED panel can put out is best explained as looking like a natural skylight with an opaque diffuser. No bright areas like a traditional fluorescent fitting, just uniform light across the entire surface. This creates a very calming atmosphere while at the same time increasing the average brightness levels in a given area.
