A panel light is a type of lighting fixture that is typically used to illuminate the interior of a building, such as an office or a home. Panel lights are designed to be mounted in the ceiling and provide a flat, even distribution of light over a wide area. They are often used as a direct replacement for traditional fluorescent lights, which are typically less energy-efficient and have a shorter lifespan.
Panel lights come in different sizes and designs and typically use LED technology which is energy-efficient, have a long lifespan and low heat emission. They can be dimmable and can be controlled by various systems such as motion sensors, timers or dimming controls to help save energy and costs. They are typically used in commercial, industrial and residential settings and can be used in a variety of applications, including office lighting, task lighting, and general lighting. Some panel lights are designed to be used in suspended ceilings and others can be recessed into the ceiling, providing a sleek, low-profile appearance.
