    Replacing fluorescent troffers with LED

    When a customer wants fluorescent 4 bulb 2x4 T8 troffer fixtures replaced, what LED troffers do you recommend to get the same lumens brightness? ( a store showroom with 17 fixtures). Thank you

    I remove the ballasts and install direct-wire LED tubes in the existing fixtures.

      Edge lit led panel with min 3500k. I prefer 4000k.

        The fixtures are old looking and they want the whole fixtures replaced, but thank you.

          In that case, refer to post #3.

            You almost never get the same thing you replaced. But often if you try to achieve the same you end up with what at least seems a little brighter and the owner/users are usually happy with that.

            Key is to know what original lumens and color temp was, and select new that is near the same values. Differences in optics/light distribution can still make it seem different though. Might not get as much of a variance on a troffer style luminaire as you can get on other styles though.
