What is a wall pack light, and what applications benefit from it?
Wall pack lights or exterior building lights are terms that describe the outdoor lighting that is commonly mounted on the outside facing walls of buildings. This type of exterior lighting is generally used to provide illumination to ground areas frequented by vehicles and pedestrians. They also function well as an added layer of security for property owners. It is not uncommon to see multiple fixtures mounted on a single building or wall, with the fixture spacing designed to provide even lighting around the grounds. Below are a few image examples of conventional wall pack lighting mounted on an exterior wall.
In the world of lighting, the high bay is a fixture that you would find in a warehouse, a factory, a gymnasium, or any large open area with relatively high ceilings. Many existing high bay lighting and low bay lighting applications utilize high intensity discharge (HID) lamps such as metal halide or high pressure sodium lamps.
High bay and low bay lighting are terms used to describe the indoor lighting that is commonly mounted via a pendant or chain, or directly to a ceiling or ceiling girder. These types of lights are often mounted higher than recessed troffer or fluorescent lights. Common uses for this type of lighting are: warehouses, industrial facilities, commercial lighting spaces, retail areas, and gymnasiums.
LED fluorescent tube replacements provide a range of cost, maintenance, and performance benefits to facilities utilizing fluorescent light fixtures. Managers often ask how they can integrate LED lighting into their existing fixtures. Meaning do they use LED tubes in their current lighting configuration, or instead do they replace the entire fixture? We’ll look at the primary drivers to migrate your current lighting to T8 LED bulbs.
Fluorescent lighting is a technology that is commonly used to provide illumination for settings such as commercial lighting, industrial lighting, classroom lighting, and retail lighting. The sizes, light colors, and wattage of fluorescent tubes vary significantly. An attribute of fluorescent lighting is that the lamps themselves are mounted within a fixture (for example, a recessed troffer), often containing between 1-8 lamps, with the fixtures themselves mounted in, directly on, or hanging from a building’s ceiling. Below are three common problems with fluorescent lighting that are often overlooked.
Conventional wall pack lighting suffers from high energy costs, frequent maintenance costs, and overall lighting performance issues. LED lighting can help mitigate all three of these issues. Read below to understand three benefits of LED wall pack lighting, including energy savings, maintenance cost reduction and lighting performance improvements.
Wall pack lights and building lights are terms that describe the outdoor lighting that is commonly mounted on the exterior walls of buildings. This type of exterior lighting is generally used to provide illumination to areas for vehicles and pedestrians use, as well as for security purposes. There are three main issues surrounding conventional wall pack lighting, these issues are: high energy costs, frequent maintenance, and lighting performance concerns.
Conrail is a terminal and switching service provider that operates in New Jersey, Detroit, and Philadelphia. They aim to provide high quality rail service that is safe, reliable, and fast. To help them achieve these goals, Stouch Lighting recently completed an LED retrofit for Conrail that had great results. Conrail had two primary goals: to improve the illumination under an overpass, and to reduce maintenance costs associated with high bay lighting. Let’s discuss how LED lighting technology can address these two concerns.
What is high bay lighting, and what applications benefit from it?
Whenever a large indoor space needs to be illuminated, high bay lighting is usually appropriate. Consider spaces like manufacturing facilities, gymnasiums, warehouses, large department stores, factories, and more; these facilities are typically vast and cover a lot of vertical as well as horizontal space. This requires powerful lighting to provide the appropriate foot-candle levels to adequately illuminate. High bay lighting fixtures typically hang from the ceiling via hooks, chains, or pendants, or they may be fixed to the ceiling directly (similar to troffer lights). The image above features high bay lighting in action.
