LED Vapor Tight comparisons against other types of lighting
See the USA Made LED Vapor Tight comparisons with 10 Year Warranties from one of the leading American LED Light Manufacturers.
The calculations assume comparable directional lumens, foot candles, or lux for Metal Halide (175W) parking garage fixture as the existing installed default, and the U.S. average $.12 Cost / kWh. With Independence LED’s 10 Year Warranty at 100,000 hours of life, common scenarios for 6,000 (16 hours / day) include parking facilities with “smart controls” such as occupancy sensors. The Independence LED performance is even better for 24/7 operations, which is common for so many structured parking or underground garages given the lighting for security.

We compare a broad range of Vapor Tight and Parking Garage fixtures in our ongoing Total Cost of Ownership analysis relative to our 10 Year Warranty American Made LED Vapor Tight fixtures. Within each category of comparison Vapor Tights, we look at multiple sub-sets and run the calculations based on data averages. Over the past few years, the manufacturers of the fixture types have ranged dramatically and our LED technology has also improved along the way. See our latest LED Vapor Tight Spec Sheets for the most up to date wattage, output and details.
Smart controls and reflectors are playing an increasing role in the innovation from our engineering team, given requests from some clients for specialized lighting needs. Our LED Vapor Tight series comes with multiple different options for occupancy sensors and reflectors with standard, narrow, and wide beam angles. The wide “batwing” beam angle is often the most popular for Parking Garages given the requirements for the wider beam angle by the DesignLights Consortium (DLC) for the Qualified Products List (QPL). Since so many utility companies use DLC as the guide for rebate eligibility we have provided the choices for our customers at multiple wattage, lens, and beam angle configurations for our LED Vapor Tight series.
