In recent years, LED linear lights are very common in commercial lighting, office lighting, and industrial lighting. Why is LED linear lighting popular?

This may be attributed to the fact that LED linear light is very versatile, can be used in a variety of lighting applications. And it also has the characteristics of high efficiency, low energy consumption, long life, and environment friendly. At the same time, it is very convenient to install LED linear lights, which helps to save money and labor.

1. What is LED linear light ?

LED is the abbreviation of "Light Emitting Diode"."Light Emitting Diode" is an efficient and durable light source that uses semiconductors to convert electrical energy into light. When an appropriate voltage is applied to the lead, the electrons can recombine with the "electron holes" in the device, releasing energy in the form of light. The color of light is determined by the energy of the semiconductor.

The LED linear light is a multiple of "light emitting diodes" encapsulated in a long and narrow shell to form a light strip. This little action completely changed the way we illuminate the space.

2. Classification of LED linear light

According to different installation methods, LED linear is mainly divided into three types: overhang, surface mount or embedded.

  • LED linear chandelier: Use hanging wires to hang on the ceiling, which is most suitable for spacious rooms with ceilings. These are also ideal for designing accent lighting, the lights are usually hung on reception desks or stairs.

Suspended lighting is one of the most popular and impressive lighting trends out there. With suspended lighting, you can not only create simple light fixtures, but completely define the look of your space. Create unexpected effects and give a sense of ethereal movement with dramatic shapes and suspension levels.

Control your light intensity and lighting range by raising or lowering the height of the fixture. Suspended lighting is subtle and dramatic.

  • Surface-mounted LED linear light: Installed on the wall or the surface of other objects that need to be illuminated, suitable for occasions where the space is small or cannot be embedded.

The main goal of direct lighting is to provide intense lighting that helps improve visibility when performing tasks, or can create a bright general lighting plan. Indirect lighting is more closely related to creating atmosphere. It can also be used to balance sharp lines and general harshness in a room.

  • Embedded LED linear: Embedded in the surface, whether it is ceiling, wall or floor. Provide an uninterrupted light source route, both for lighting and decoration.

Since it takes up less visual space, it can make a room appear larger. Recessed simply means being set back to the surface, so interior design is not limited to ceilings, products can be inserted into walls for more options. The goal of recessed lighting is not only to increase visibility, but also to instill interest and ambience in your environment.

It's also great for illuminating specific objects without having to hang anything. If you have a conference room table that needs lighting, a recessed linear lighting fixture can be installed in the ceiling above to follow the lines of the table.

From the perspective of the diversity of linear lamp styles and installation methods: line lamps have not only lighting functions, but also visual arts functions, size, light color, installation methods and the control methods are changing according to different usage scenarios.

According to the specific application range, the length can be freely customized to the actual installation requirements, and it can also be spliced at will. The power and color temperature of built-in light source can also be changed according to the use scene. In addition, with the popularization of intelligent control systems, more and more users prefer to add intelligent control effects to improve the visual effect of the space and improve the sensory experience.

The LED linear lighting is easy to install, and the color reproduction is high, the size can be cut according to the lighting needs, the frameless shape makes the whole more fashionable. So more and more users choose to use LED linear light.
