Do yourself a favor and install these. I have 9 in a 2000 sq ft hangar 12 ft ceilings mounted on ceiling 3rd hangar here to install them. They are 18000 lumen and are TERRIFIC to work under. Don't cheap out on lighting, It really makes or breaks a space.
Ok
Lithonia IBG 18000LM SEF AFLGND MVOLT GZ10 40K 80 CRI DNA

I got them for $208 ea in 2019 from greenlighting wholesale. Have them quote it, not just what is on a website.

Notice CRI in led lighting. Stands for color rendering index. 90+ and most people canít distinguish from incandescent lighting. Instead of that single frequency harsh color (regardless of kelvin rating), you get a much more natural looking light with high CRI. Thatís where I spend my money on ledsÖ

I have a 4200 sq ft hangar bay that has 12 halide fixtures that were existing when I bought the place. A year ago, I installed three 26000 lumen hi-bay lights from www.superbrightleds.com, hung along the centerline of the hangar, 18 ft above the floor. I never turn the halides on any more....

Default my...

I hung my hyper light fixtures at 12'. One in the tail portion of the T and the other two are equally spaced in the wing section of the T.

Beats the heck out of the two incandescent bulbs at 18' on the ceiling!

Several of the reviews for these mention significant RF interference and/or early failures. Have you had any issues with them?

I put these in my garage...they're fantastic. About $30...

They make various lumens...up to 20000 I believe, and they're adjustable

Thanks. Turns out the guys next door put 2x 200w 5000k lights in theirs and I was impressed, 4x of the 200w 4000k lights and reflectors were just delivered but I've got to leave on a trip, will put them up next week when I come home.

The light is... different. I got more sideways light off the HiDs that bounced off the upper corners of the hangar, but the light from these are "cleaner", if that makes any sense. I'll never use them enough to make up the for cost vs the HiDs, but one of the HiDs was going bad and needed to be replaced, so it had to be done.
