How To Choose The Best LED Parking Lot Lights
When choosing the best led parking lot lights, you’ll ideally want to know:
What kind of commercial parking lot lights are used
What kind of lights are used in parking lots?
LED parking lot lights are becoming an increasingly popular choice for modern developers and builders. They offer many benefits other lamps don’t — such as low energy costs, lower maintenance costs, and higher light quality.
Greenshine commercial solar parking lot lights are a great solution for businesses looking to reduce and improve their energy costs. Outdoor LED parking lot lights can give off a lot of lumens using significantly less wattage than other bulbs, making them perfect for solar power.
High-Intensity Discharge Lamps
Commercial parking lot lights have a history of using high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps. These lamps use ionized gasses to create an arc and discharge light. If broken, the gasses in these lamps can be toxic. Broken HID lamps that use mercury need to be clean by a professional — which not only poses a risk but also can be expensive.
Many other problems can accrue from using these types of lamps, including:
Newer HID lamps don’t use mercury. The two most commonly used HID lamps are metal halide and high-pressure sodium.
Metal halide lamps give off a nice whiter light appearance when they’re initially installed. However, they tend to degrade quickly after installation, and the lumen output decreases.
A high-pressure sodium lamp’s lumen output doesn’t degrade as quickly as metal halide lamps do. However, they produce a low-quality orange light, in comparison to the brighter LED parking lot lights.
How many lumens do I need for an LED parking lot light?
A lumen (lm) measures the total quantity of visible light emitted by one source during a period of time. IESNA recommends that a secure parking lot be lit to a .5 fc average throughout the lot.
Greenshine parking lot light systems range in wattage and lumen output:
What kind of lighting is best used for outdoor parking?
When creating a concept for commercial parking lot lights there are three variables to consider:
Many businesses will need a variety of lighting for their parking lots. For example, you might want lamps with a circular distribution and cooler lumen temperature for your parking lot. However, if your parking lot has a perimeter walkway, you might want a lateral distribution lamp with a warmer lumen color temperature.
Commercial Parking Lot Lights
At the end of the day, Greenshine Commercial Solar Lights are the best to use for outdoor parking because:
How far apart should LED parking lot lights be?
No two parking lots are the same, and every business has different needs. There are a plethora of variables when it comes to parking lot lighting, but there is a general range you can follow when figuring out where to place lights in your parking lot.
The following are average recommendations for parking lot light placement:
Brighter lights placed higher will make the parking lot more inviting with fewer poles to maintain. However, the higher the poles are, the more difficult and expensive they are to maintain.
Choosing the best led parking lot lights
The Supera Series is perfect for medium to large size areas, such as roadway solar lighting, highways, street solar lighting, parking lot solar lighting and security solar lighting.
The Brighta Series is ideal for solar park lighting, solar pathway lighting, solar parking lot lighting, and solar street lighting. The Brighta features a simple design: one CREE XPG LED fixture with a luminaire efficiency above 130 lumens per watt, plus one solar panel composed of monocrystalline solar cells.
The Lumina outdoor lighting solution is designed to provide sufficient lighting for numerous applications, such as pathways, bicycle lanes, streets, parking lots, parks, and corporate complexes. With Greenshine’s exclusive power saving technology on the battery, this series can provide up to 7 days power back-up.
