Frequently Asked Questions
In conversations with our customers, we asked them what questions they wished they had asked before buying perimeter lights. Here’s the list below. If you couldn’t find the answer to your question, contact us on (888) 423-3191 and we’ll be happy to assist you.
Where Should I Install Perimeter Lighting?
Perimeter lighting should be installed when you need to light a large outdoor area. It provides a great form of security for areas that need protection.
Before You Buy
What is the Brightest Perimeter Light?
WE have many bright light options, one of our customers favorites is a 1200 Watt LED Flood Light that produces 168,000 lumens. This light is powerful enough to replace 2-3 1000 Watt Metal Halide lights.
What Type of Light Levels Do I Need on the Perimeter?
Perimeter lighting does not have to be too bright, unless cameras are being used in addition to lighting. 2 to 5 foot candles would be more than adequate.
Should I Use Type 3,4 or 5? or Are There Specific Optics I Should Be Using?
Type 3, which is considered a forward throw optic, would make most sense if the light is installed on the edges of the area being protected. If you want to use flood lights, make sure they have the right optics available.
Do You Have Perimeter Lights in Stock?
We do. We have many options inside our main warehouse in Nashua, NH as well as other warehouse locations across the USA.

Fixtures and Fittings
What Fixtures Are Good for Security?
Flood Lights, Shoebox Lights and high mast lights are excellent forms of security lighting. They are powerful lights that can project wide beams over large areas, or tight beams to light up specific areas from far away.
What Are the Mounting Options for Security Lighting?
These types of lights are available with slip fitter mounts, trunnion and yoke mounts.
How to Install Perimeter Lighting?
Since these lights tend to be mounted on high poles, you should work with a qualified electrician to mount and wire them. The lights themselves are easy to install and wire and each light includes an easy to follow set of instructions for installation.
How to Wire LED Perimeter Lights?
There are only 3 wires for all types of perimeter lighting: line, neutral and ground.
How High Should Perimeter Lighting Be Mounted?
There is no set height, but we can create a lighting plan modeling our high power perimeter lights for your area. We can tell you where the poles should be located and provide you with a report detailing light levels and light balance.
What's The Best Way to Choose Perimeter Lighting?
The best way is to start with an outdoor perimeter lighting plan.
A perimeter lighting plan creates a report that shows how bright and balanced the lighting will be.
It identifies the locations of lights, and select the best OPTIC to use. We have done 1000's of FREE high bay lighting plans for both UFO and Linear fixtures.
