LED Retrofit Lighting

What is a retrofit?

In general, a retrofit is the process of adding new technology or features to an existing system. Specifically, a LED retrofit kit is a bundled set of hardware that is designed to increase the efficiency and performance of an existing fluorescent fixture.

Where and when is a retrofit kit generally used?

Retrofit kits are ideal for situations where the layout and design of the current lighting system is satisfactory, but the efficiency of the system need to be improved to reflect improvements in technology.

Why should I retrofit instead of using new fixtures?

If you are satisfied with the output and layout of your existing fixtures, retrofitting is much more cost effective. Many customers who choose to retrofit realize a cost savings of 50-75% compared to the cost of redesign. Also, it is less disruptive to retrofit as most retrofit kits can be installed while the fixture remains in place.
