LED guru's, I need some advise on LED lights for my shop. I have a 40x60 with a 20x60 lean to. The shop has 12ft ceilings, I've been looking at various LED lights that are compareable to my metal halide's, I want to be sure to purchase the type that will put out the same amount of light because they are not to cheap.

The first step to getting the same light output is to let people know the wattage and type of Metal Halides. How high are the Halides off the ground.

The problem I have is finding the fixtures that I see in use at commecial sites. The ones being used at hotels for sign lights, up lights and down lights.

You would need 3 of these to get the same mean Lumens. MH has the best output of white light.
