Fluorescent tube lights, halogen lights and metal halide lights are common types of commercial lighting. Incandescent, solar-powered and neon lights also have many commercial applications.
Fluorescent lighting is extremely popular in the commercial arena, particularly for ceiling-mounted light fixtures. This type of lighting is very energy-efficient. Halogen lights are popular in outdoor lighting applications because they cast extremely bright light over large areas and do not require a warm-up period. Many exterior security systems and floodlights feature halogen bulbs. Solar-powered lighting is another outdoor option and is especially popular for streetlights.
Warehouses and vehicle hangars often feature metal halide lighting, which is four times brighter than halogen lighting. Metal halide bulbs also last five times longer than halogen bulbs.
