Title: Outside Commercial Lighting


1
Outside Commercial Lighting
  • For anyone who owns a business, lighting the
    inside of the building is important, but
    illuminating the exterior is vital to the safety
    and well-being of your employees and customers.
    There are many applications for outside
    commercial lighting, and finding the right
    products for your needs can be a daunting task.
    If you know the right questions to ask, though,
    it is easy to get helpful guidance and advice
    from experts for your project. Quality light
    retailers should have experienced electricians
    available to answer specific questions not only
    about lighting product information but also on
    specific projects. If you can find such advice,
    choosing and installing your outside commercial
    lighting will be simple.

  • Depending upon your lighting needs, you might not
    be able to install your outside commercial
    lighting without the assistance of a
    professional. For instance, if you are lighting a
    sports or horse arena, you will require very
    bright high voltage flood lights. These should
    only be installed by an electrician. For safety
    considerations, lay persons should only handle
    the wiring of low voltage lights. High voltage
    lights offer powerful lighting. Quality lamps
    will reduce glare and shadows. These lamps will
    need to be mounted on a pole. You will need to
    choose between wood, concrete or metal for your
    pole material.  The most common commercial poles
    for arena use are metal poles since they are
    often larger than wood or concrete. For a small
    soccer field, or tennis court, though, wooden
    poles are fine, since the lights do not have to
    be located as high.

  • There are other needs for outside commercial
    lighting. One of which is to ensure the security
    of your property and the people on it. Security
    lighting is comprised of a large range of
    different products all designed to eliminate the
    shadows where crime often occurs. Flood lights
    are a simple option for keeping your workplace
    safe, but if those wall pack lights are
    needlessly on, you will end up wasting money.
    This is why for any outside commercial lighting
    you have some sort of automatic control. That
    way, you do not have to be their at dusk or dawn
    to make certain that your lights will come on or
    go off. There are several control options from
    which to choose. You might want a timer to keep
    the lights lit for a specified number of hours.

  • If you only want them on when it is dark,
    consider a light sensor to do the job. For the
    ultimate in security, wire your outdoor lamps
    into a motion detector. This will turn on the
    light at the first signs of movement. You do need
    to be aware that while light sensors and timers
    will work with any bulb, motion detectors should
    not be used with HID (high intensity discharge)
    bulbs. This is because these bulbs require a warm
    up and cool down time between lightings. Instead,
    you will need to have a halogen floodlight,
    incandescent flood fixture, or fluorescent light
    to be operated by a motion detector.

  • If you still require assistance with choosing the
    right  outside commercial lighting for your
    needs, consult an electrician or call RLLD at
    800-239-2939. You need to be sure that you have
    the right products for the job. That will prevent
    you from making needless replacements or
    installing the wrong item. An expert's advice
    should always be sought out in cases of
    uncertainty to ensure the safety and success of
    your  outside commercial lighting project.
