Linear Light Fitting Overview

A linear light fitting is an linear lighting fixture that uses an LED as its source of light, and is mainly used for commercial and industrial lighting fixtures. With the continued growth and technological advancement of LED, linear light fittings are becoming ever more designed and optimized for a broader spectrum of locations. Now, lighting designers are specifying linear light fittings not just for offices, but for upscale commercial locations, homes, and industrial lighting fixtures, achieving a variety of different lighting scenarios.

Today, many linear lighting fittings are constructed from PC boards or silicone materials which provide optimal light transmission and a soft non-glare light output. Furthermore, many linear light fixtures now incorporate intelligent control options such as remote, voice, and scene settings. Power, brightness and color temperature can all be easily changed.

Linear Light Fitting Design Details

Lighting, Color Temp, and Mount:

The key elements of a linear light fitting design are the lighting levels, color temperature and mount, as they affect the lighting scenario and comfort of the area being illuminated. For example, for a typical room with 3m ceiling height, the recommended distance from the wall should be in the range of 150-200 mm to achieve the best wall-washing effect. The color temperature should also be varied for different locations and applications; for example, a warm yellow light (2700-3000k) may be more appropriate for a living room, while a neutral or cool white light (4000k-5000k) may be more suitable for an office environment.

Choosing the Right Size and Type:

The type and size of the linear light fitting is also critical. The length can be customized and daisy chained freely depending on the application. The light strip source inside the fixture can vary in power and color temperature depending on the particular use case. For instance, typical COMLED LED strips come in 2FT, 4FT, 5FT, and can be linked between fixtures for convenient installation.

User Interaction and Spatial Effects:

Linear light fittings can also be designed with consideration to its interaction and spatial effects with its surroundings. Other than providing lighting, it can also be treated as a visual art element and light variation can create various spatial effects. In a commercial environment, it can produce a bright and rhythmic ambience, while in a residential area it can provide warmth and coziness.

Linear Light Fitting Application Scenarios

Linear light fittings can be installed in almost anywhere due to its flexibility and aesthetic appeal. Below are some of the typical use cases:

Industrial Lighting:

For industrial locations such as machine shops, assembly lines, warehouses, and distribution facilities, linear light fittings can supply the necessary lighting in an energy efficient manner to satisfy various lighting requirements.

Office and Commercial:

For general lighting, linear light fittings can provide uniform illumination while highlighting the indoor spatial features with its linear profiles, enhancing the overall ambience and achieving a unique visual impact.


Often seen as "light without fixtures", linear light fittings highlight the spatial texture with light. It can be used to highlight a particular area and create a visual layering and contrast effect, thus adding profundity and three-dimensionality to the surroundings.

Corridors and Stairwells:

In corridors, linear light fittings can create dynamic lighting effects and contrast, bringing vitality and excellent visual impact. In stairwells, they can light up the space with line lights, enriching the spatial context while creating visual layers and contrast.

Advantages of Linear Light Fittings Compared to Traditional Lighting

Linear light fittings offer improved energy efficiency. Traditional lighting consumes significantly more power. Linear designs have modern LED technology. This technology results in substantial energy savings. Over time this translates into lower utility bills. This makes them increasingly appealing to businesses.

Linear LED light fittings have much higher luminous efficacy than traditional lighting. They convert electrical energy efficiently into light. Thus they consume significantly less energy for the same lighting effect. Studies show LED linear light fittings can save over 50% energy compared to traditional lighting.

Linear LED fittings typically last over 50000 hours. This far exceeds the lifespan of traditional lighting fixtures. It reduces maintenance costs. Over time

LED linear fittings provide high color rendering. They offer more uniform and soft lighting. This enhances safety for pedestrians. Drivers benefit as well. Traditional lighting by contrast often produces shadows. Flickers can affect vision.

LED linear fittings do not produce harmful substances like mercury or toxic gases during production. They also do not release these during use This reduces environmental pollution. It protects health. Traditional lighting on the other hand often generates significant pollutants.

With their long lifespan linear LED fittings require less frequent replacements. They do not contain harmful substances. This lowers the costs and reduces environmental risks. Associated with disposal, these benefits are significant.

Many linear LED fittings feature smart controls. These allow automatic brightness adjustments based on environmental conditions. Also needs. This further reduces energy consumption. Traditional lighting typically lacks such capabilities.

Linear LED fittings can be designed in various shapes and sizes to meet different lighting needs and environments.

Safety Measures for Installing Linear Light Fittings

Check the light fixture and accessories:

Check the light fixture and accessories before installation. If the light fixture has any bent or deformed parts, paint blisters, or a cracked lampshade, the fixture should not be installed. Also, check the model, quantity, installation direction, installation location, and other information of the light fixtures to ensure they meet the site requirements and are suitable for the locations of use.

Inspect the electrical circuit:

Before connecting circuits, ensure that the connected circuits are not damaged. Use a circuit tester to detect whether there is voltage or a short circuit so that electric shock will not occur to the installation workers during the installation work of the light fixtures.

Stable supporting structure:

Before installing any light fixtures, ensure that the supporting structure is sufficiently stable. If the supporting structure is not stable, it will pose a danger to the installation workers. Select the installation location with relatively hard and stable surface. The light fixtures are installed by using a light fixture support structure.

Using suitable connectors:

When installing light fixtures, suitable connectors should be used and the connectors should be able to withstand the expected loads and wind speeds. The connectors should be rustproof and anti-corrosion so as to ensure the long-term application and prevent any unexpected bad weather conditions affecting the connectors.

Adopt Proper Safety Measures:

Take safety protection measures when conducting light fixture work. Installers should wear helmets, safety shoes, gloves, and other protective gear. Also, carry out relevant safety education and guidance to ensure that installers can respond to emergencies in case of any accidents.

Consider Potential Issues:

Before conducting any light fixture installation work, problems that may possibly occur should be forecasted and the proper preparations should be made. For example, confirming the site of work, confirming the power supply, confirming the specifications of the light fixtures, confirming the support structure, confirming the methods of fixing the light fixtures, etc.
