In the past, fluorescent tubes were often used for garage lighting. They scored with brightness at high efficiency.
However, fluorescent tubes also have some disadvantages: at low temperatures they tend to start slowly and flicker. It can then take a while until the full luminosity is reached.
Modern LED luminaires do not have to struggle with this problem. Even at sub-zero temperatures, they provide full luminosity immediately after switching on.
They also score points for flexibility, maximum energy efficiency and long service life. This means that the investment costs for converting your garage to LED will pay for themselves very quickly.
The ideal garage lighting is sketched out very simply: as soon as the garage door opens or a person enters the garage, the light should come on. It should be bright! And then the light should switch off again quickly. Automatically!
