Plant Engineering has named the Big Ass® Light High Bay LED a winner in its 2014 Product of the Year awards contest. Winners are selected by the magazine’s subscribers. Now in its 27th year, the contest showcases the quality products that end users in the manufacturing industry rely on to fuel their work.
The Big Ass Light High Bay LED, which won in the lighting category, is engineered to solve common failures of traditional industrial and commercial lighting. Unlike fixtures made of stamped sheet metal, the High Bay LED is constructed from a solid piece of heavy-duty extruded aluminum. Its ribbed fins increase the fixture’s surface area and act as a heat sink, dissipating heat and extending the lifespan of the LEDs. The fixture’s patent-pending lumen maintenance trays protect the LEDs from dirt and debris. Its easy-access panel also lets users swap out drivers without taking down the light, ensuring the fixture never becomes outdated.
