Default highbay retrofits

Just wondering if anyone knows what a "competitive" price would be for installing LED highbays on a per fixture basis.

There are quite a few variables here. Of course fixture prices for highbays are all over the place with a zillion options available. The labor involved depends quite a bit on the wiring that's there. The mounting could cost a little or a lot depending on the height and the type of ceiling / structure.

Define “competitive”.

If I’m competing against Bare Bones, I’ve lost money already.

Not that I have a number, but height, obstacles, number of fixtures and lift costs are all going to factor into this number. You're going to have a small percentage failure rate too. Need to factor in the cost of a return trip and lift to do warranty repairs

***Note: I just posted some prices and thoughts on this topic and then realized that this is in the regular business section, not the private section.

No thanks. I erased it.

You could be up to 10000000$ per fixture all in depending on the circumstances.this is obviously a fake number because this is in the public section....

Private section and we can give more info.

On my screen "Business Lounge (Private)" is the selection right below the one that gets you here, I think you need a minimum number of posts to see it

Up your post count if necessary by replying "I see" to as many posts as necessary
