Before Conversion to LED
BEFORE YOU BUY
Can You Retrofit 400 Watt School Parking Lot Fixtures or Are We Better to Go with New Fixtures?
You can do both, and the decision of what’s best depends on your current lighting. If you have a large investment in your style of lights, then retrofitting is a great option. If you have standard fixtures, or old/broken fixtures, then replacement makes sense.
How Many Foot Candles Do You Recommend for a Gym?
Gyms should be lit up with at least 50 foot candles, depending on the function and use of the gym.
Our School Stadium Has 1500 Watt Metal Halide Lights. What LED Fixtures Will Replace Them?
We offer a 600 Watt LED spot flood light that will outperform the 1500 Watt metal halide fixture, 1 for 1. We can create a lighting plan to show you how your field will look if you want to see how a conversion to LED would look like.
I Have a School Gym with 400 Watt Metal Halide Fixtures. What Is the Best Option to Use?
We have a series of High Bay LED Lights between 150 and 200 Watts. These would be a great replacement for these fixtures.
How Many Lights Do You Need Per Classroom?
That depends on many factors, desired light levels being one of them. The best plan and course of action is to contact us and ask for a lighting plan. We will create one for you (free of charge). This will show you how well lit your classrooms can be and how well balanced the light appears across the room.
Do You Offer LED Lighting for Schools for High School Football or Baseball Fields?
We do, and have done many outdoor sport fields for schools using LED Sports Lighting.
Is It Best to Use 1x4s, 2x4s, or 2×2 Panel Lights in a Classroom? What Is the Difference?
The best option depends on your current grid pattern. It’s best to match your existing grid pattern to keep the costs lower. The main difference is a 2X4 panel is 2X brighter than a similar spec 2X2 or 1X4 panel. Otherwise, there’s no difference. The 2X4 panel is the most common choice.
FIXTURES AND FITTINGS
Is Dimming an Option Available for Classroom Lights?
All our classroom fixture options come dimmable.
Can You Add Motion Sensors to School Gym Lights?
Yes, this will allow the gym lights to dim when its empty .
How Do You Dim Classroom Lights?
You will need a LED dimming switch that supports 0-10V or 1-10V dimming. You will need to wire in a low voltage dimming system to the classroom lights. Your installer should be very familiar with doing this.
How Can We Install Lights to Take Advantage of Natural Light During the Day?
The best way is to make sure the lights are dimmable, and dim the lights down during the day. The only issue is that the light that’s farthest away from the windows will be the dimmest.
Is it hard to replace our existing gymnasium lights with LED Fixtures?
Not all all, its very simple to do. Its no different than replacing it with any other type of light.
