About LED Flat Panel Lighting
These lights have the ability to be mounted either on a flat surface or in an existing drop ceiling, similar to our troffer LED lights. When mounted to a flat ceiling, the low profile of these lights makes them unobtrusive and aesthetically pleasing, redirecting the focus of the customers and clients to the items being illuminated. They also work great in situations where low ceiling height is a concern, as they take up very little vertical space when mounted to ceilings.
We offer several different shapes, sizes, wattages, color temperatures of flat panel lights to fit a variety of different needs and applications. Our main options are listed below:

Q. What are the differences between flat panel and troffer lights?
These two types of lights are often used interchangeably for the same applications, however they do differ in aesthetics and mounting options. Troffer lights are designed to be used exclusively in drop ceilings with a diffuser cover. Flat panel lights on the other hand are able to be used in either a drop ceiling or mounted flat on a ceiling for a low profile look.
Q. Why choose flat panel lights over tube lights?
Tube lights are the most popular choice for lighting large areas, especially in commercial environments. However these lights are bulky and not particularly aesthetically pleasing compared to flat panel lights. Flat panel lights offer similar light output and performance in a low profile and sleek profile, making them the ideal choice when aesthetics are an important factor.
Q. How are flat panel LED lights mounted?
These lights can be surface mounted, suspended or mounted in a drop ceiling, depending on the application requirements. They come equipped with all the fixture specific hardware required for installation. The included LED driver is usually mounted in the ceiling or in another hidden location depending on where the light is being mounted.
