Designed to replace old fluorescent lights, LED panels slot straight into existing ceiling grids and often allow easy surface mounting. They save up to 60% in energy and cut maintenance costs. Lyco sells square, rectangular, and circular panels from respected brands. These fittings are ideal for hospitals, offices and schools. LED panels come in edge-lit and backlit types. Edge-lit technology places LEDs around the edges of the panel and uses a complex optical system to redirect their light. The main benefit is a remarkably slim design. Backlit panels are simpler, cheaper and very efficient, but they’re also broader.
