MORE LIGHT — LESS COST
Utilizing the latest proven fluorescent technology — brighter T8 or T5 lamps, electronic ballasts, specular reflectors — Mor-Lite's patented textile fixtures deliver light where it is needed.
Mor-Lite Products:
  • FLUORESCENT HIGH BAY FIXTURES for warehouse applications. One for one replacement for metal halide — more light and half the energy cost.
