Frequently Asked Questions
We asked customers to find out their biggest questions when it comes to buying LED gas station lights. If you cannot find the answer below, please call (888) 423-3191 and one of our lighting experts will assist you.
What Type of Lights Can You Use at a Gas Station?
There are several types of LED Gas Station Lights. The most common ones are the LED Canopy Lights installed over gas station canopies. But there are other lights – LED Parking Lot Lights, LED Wall Packs, and LED Flood Lights. Indoors, there is general store lighting with LED Panel lights or surface-mounted linear fixtures.
Do LED Gas Station Lights Need to Be Explosion Proof?
No, they do not need to be explosion-proof. Unless there is a need for a specific location. Canopies are outdoor open-air locations. And there are very few fumes if any, that are created from re-fueling cars with gas.
