Garage Light Fixtures – A garage or garage can be really dangerous if you are stuck in the dark or have a little light. Not only that, but you might not be very useful or productive without proper lighting. Garages that are bright enough are safer and can make your work faster and more accurate too. Fortunately, there are several types of lights available today that make your garage more environmentally friendly for any project or repair you need to do.
LED Work Lights
Halogen work lights are the traditional way to turn on a garage, because you get a ton of light in a fairly portable form. However, halogen lamps can be difficult to move, not necessarily from their weight, but from the fact that they are always hot to touch. In fact, they become hotter and hotter the longer they are used. Many people even burn their hands when trying to handle these lights because of their heat. It can also be a fire hazard if you leave the lamp unattended or near something that is flammable.
The good LED work lights were created later. LED work lights are smaller and more portable than traditional halogen work lights, but have many other advantages. First, they will not burn your fingers when you touch them. In fact, LEDs produce very little heat at all. Also, LED lights are much smaller than halogen-based lamps, so they can be lighter with lighter weight, and therefore much more portable. LEDs are also very durable for every project.
Battery Operated LED Light
Another very good practical choice for dark spaces around the garage is a battery-operated LED light. These lights use batteries, usually AA or triple A and can be hung, trapped or attached to spaces around the garage that are not suitable for electrically powered lights. Some examples include in a closet, in a drawer, above or under a work desk, between a storage area and a hallway.
There is also a battery-operated lamp that has a motion detection feature, making it turn on as soon as you or someone else moves closer to light, and automatically turns off when no movement is detected for a certain period of time. These types of lights are great for dark lines or spaces where there might not be an electrical outlet. This can also be useful in storage, cabinets or drawers because you don’t have to bother turning on the lights and turning off when you work.
