Information on Troffer Lights
Troffer Lights are a type of commercial lighting fixture commonly used in areas with drop-ceilings such as offices, retail stores, and more. These drop-ceiling fixtures come in several different sizes depending on individual lighting needs. Typical sizes include: 2×4 and 4×4 fixtures.
At Straits Lighting, we offer top quality LED Troffer Lights that provide long lasting energy-efficient illumination for office lighting and other indoor commercial lighting needs. Our Tri-Line LED T8 Troffer uses premium materials to provide enhanced light levels in a modern troffer design.

Tri-Line 2×4 – The 2×4 model uses three 4 ft LED tubes.
X-Series LED T8 bulbs – We recommend using our X-Series T8 Bulbs for your Tri-Line Fixtures. Using these bulbs saves up to 60% energy-cost when compared to fluorescent bulbs.
Fluorescent Troffers v.s LED Troffers
Many offices and commercial facilities are still using fluorescent lights as their main source of illumination; however, over the past several years, facility managers and business owners have started to see the benefits of switching to LEDs. Benefits of using troffers with LED bulbs as opposed to troffers with fluorescent bulbs include but are not limited to:
- Higher Energy Efficiency
- Brighter Illumination
- Longer Life Span
- Reduced Maintenance Costs
- Increased Safety
These benefits are shown in a study conducted by the U.S. Department of Energy. According to the study,
“The recessed fluorescent troffer is ubiquitous in American commercial spaces, with 1×4, 2×2, and 2×4 troffers comprising more than 50% of the luminaires installed in commercial applications and using more than 87 Terawatt-hours (TWh) of electrical energy per year. Consequently, energy-efficiency improvements to this category of luminaire through the use of LED technology can potentially yield significant energy and environmental benefits.” (U.S. Department of Energy, 2013, CALiPER Exploratory Study: Recessed Troffer Lighting)
The benefits of using LEDs for drop-ceiling lighting are further shown in a case study where one of our customers saw a 115% increase in annual ROI after transitioning from fluorescent lights to our Tri-Line LED T8 Troffers
