Title: Parking Lot Lighting

Parking Lot Lighting
  • Parking lot lighting is a important part of many
    companies, which can sometimes be a little
    overlooked. Good use of commercial parking lot
    light fixtures can help create a safer
    environment for your employees, customers and
    business, while creating nice-looking

  • Of course, any parking lot, large or small,
    should be illuminated for safety and visibility
    first. An unlimited number of different types of
    flood lights can be used to secure the edge of a
    parking lot by removing the shadows along the
    walls, behind buildings and in gaps between store
    fronts. This can create a challenge for some
    contractors working in a community with strict
    dark sky laws on light pollution.

  • Lighting a 6,000 square foot of pavement may
    require the use of 1000 Watt metal halide light
    fixtures to light the edges and entrances and
    distribute light evenly on the concrete. But if
    dark sky laws mandate strict containment of light
    spills, you will need to house these fixtures
    that have a variety of design options for
    accommodating semi-full/cut-off construction of
    the parking lot light fixture. Otherwise the
    light will go into the neighboring houses and
    businesses, or even in the eyes of motorists.
  • In general, it is best to use American made
    lighting fixtures for parking lots. Quality
    control of various levels of government, and
    ensures that the manufacturers\ back their
    products are unmatched in most of the world.

  • American made parking lot lighting also offers
    its clients the best engineering, maintenance,
    and replacement options available any where in
    the world. It ensures that the light fixtures can
    be maintained and replaced quickly if something
    goes wrong, because we are a national company
    that can deliver parts in a timely manner world

  • Parking lot lights may need to be very visual in
    some situations. Fixtures may require a visual
    element in certain situations. In some projects,
    this will matter much more than
    others. University campuses, schools, and
    government buildings should be illuminated with
    light fixtures that offer a design that closely
    matches the geometric proportions and
    architectural design of the adjoining
    buildings.  Most companies require aesthetic
    parking lot lights for security and attracting
    customers. The single thing an person may notice
    when they drive by your place of business is the
    parking lot. Eye-catching  lighting fixtures
    that are well designed will often be enough to
    catch a persons attention.

  • Parking lot lighting kits represents a serious
    factor of high retail sales. Not only must it
    provide potential customers with safety, it must
    also provide the best possible visibility. Color
    representation should be as close to daylight
    levels in order to enhance storefront
    decorations, outdoor sign lighting, and
    landscaping lighting features that create an
    aesthetically pleasing setting all over the
    common grounds adjacent the parking lot itself. 

  • Metal Halide lights provide the greatest lighting
    source for parking lots due to their high color
    rendering index (CRI) and their bright white
    light. Once enclosed in superior, commercial
    grade light fixtures, they are also outstanding
    for controlling glare. This is another crucial
    factor to parking lot lighting that warrants
    cautious design and purchasing choices. Parking
    lots on car lots, strip centers and shopping
    malls experience a high amount of pedestrian
    traffic, and automobile traffic tends to get
    larger as closing time approaches. It is
    essential to give clear horizontal foot-candles
    density for walkers to clearly see the
    ground. Likewise, vertical foot candles in
    parking lots are also just as important, allowing
    motorists to judge distances between themselves,
    other automobiles, light poles and outdoor

  • Commercial grade lighting of this type help make
    the most of lumens per watt efficiency and help
    business owners weather tight times with more
    reasonably priced lighting fixtures and power
    costs. In many instances, Commercial grade
    lighting fixtures to light parking lots can
    improve energy efficiency as much as 400. The
    first front end outlay in new parking lot lights
    and poles will help store owners immediately
    begin saving money. This is extremely important
    to many cities, where new energy codes will soon
    go into law that limit outdoor site lighting
    around shopping centers and parking lots to 15
    watts per square foot. Only with top of the line
    halogen fixtures can business owners expect to
    balance the mandates of lighting code compliance
    with the clear requirements of sufficient light
    levels, color rendering, and glare minimization.
