Defining High Bay Lights

(Hid) High Intensity Discharge High Bay Fixtures including the newest technology Pulse Start Metal Halide, and older Technology of High Pressure Sodium (HPS) and Metal Halide (MH) have been the lighting warehouses, manufacturing, garages, hangers, barns and other commercial, retail and industrial locations. Today with newer Pulse Start Metal Halide the lighting has become even more energy efficient and has greater lamp life (i.e. a 320 Pulse Start Metal Halide has the equivalent light output of a 400 watt Metal Halide but uses 80 less watts). In environments where dirt is substantial, or corrosive these High Intensity Discharge Fixtures are ideal. While Linear Fluorescent High Bays are gaining market share in areas, it is unlikely to replace MH in locations.
