I plan to install 16 linear high bay LED lights to replace the fluorescent fixtures. Modeling shows I will have over 100 FC at 30”. That might be a little overkill but they are dimmable.Thanks WDE, the shop is in the process of getting some much needed love, new lights, air system and more outlets. I was getting tired of tripping over airlines and extension cords in the dark.

I don’t want to ball up WDE’s thread so I’ll post some more info of what I’m doing here: Maxline by Rapidair - https://forum.ih8mud.com/threads/maxline-by-rapidair.1263254/Curious - what are you using for air piping?
I’m not an expert and spent a bunch of money doing it myself incorrectly. What I learned is China light output numbers on Chinese branded lights is different than the light output on name brand lights. These Lithonia lights have less output than a fixture they replaced but the difference in usable light down low is staggering. They did hang a smaller version of the same Lithonia light under my mezzanine at 10” and they are a good choice if you plan to hang some lower.Mine will be hanging around 15’ and I thought it better to go 16 fixtures instead of 12 with lower output.
These are the ones I was modelling and when I said similar, I meant Lithonia. Given how fast the LED landscape is changing I probably won't buy anything until I'm close to hanging them.What I learned is China light output numbers on Chinese branded lights is different than the light output on name brand lights.
