The Lighting Research Center at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has released a new guide for contractors and specifiers who are replacing existing fluorescent troffers with new LED troffers or retrofit kits.
The guide, LED Troffer Installations, provides step-by-step instructions on selecting suitable LED troffers or retrofit kits, along with sample calculations. Lighting contractors and specifiers will benefit from the simple, straightforward explanations of the many factors that should be taken into consideration when selecting LED troffers or retrofit kits to replace existing fluorescent troffers: adequate illuminance, energy savings, occupant satisfaction, payback period, and lighting controls. Development of the guide was sponsored by the Lighting Energy Alliance.
