The new high-bay is a standout performer in both efficacy and quality, engineered to deliver maximum savings and industrial-strength performance with up to 150 lumens per watt (LPW) and a payback as fast as 1.5 years.

“Cree’s new KBL LED High-Bay Series is the ideal solution for the high-bay market and delivers an average of 2,000 lumens more than the nearest competitor,” said David Elien, Cree senior vice president, lighting. “With best-in-class lumen maintenance in applications up to 50C ambient, the KBL Series offers unprecedented reliability for the rigors of retail, industrial manufacturing and warehouse applications.”
