Integrated LED Fixtures: These LED fixtures may resemble LED ready fixtures, but the similarities end there. Integrated LED fixtures come complete with the LED arrays already built into the fixture. They are designed to provide a specific color and Lumen output and they do not have typical “bulbs” that can be replaced. Integrated LED fixtures typically last for many years, often a decade or more. When they do burn out, rather than shopping for a replacement LED bulb, customers will order a new LED array, or module. However, with the advancements in LED technology we would encourage businesses to evaluate changing out their LED fixtures for more cost effective and updated functionality.
LED Ready fixtures: these fixtures are designed to use LED bulbs and typically are sold without the bulbs. A primary benefit of the LED ready fixtures is that customers can select the appropriate bulb for their needs as long as the bulb is the right shape, size and wattage. The initial installation of the fixtures is comparable to the Integrated fixtures, but replacing the bulb when it burns out is easier than replacing the LED array or module on the integrated fixture.
