What Are Seaport Lights - Container Port Lights?
Industrial and commercial seaports are working around the clock, and due to the naturally perilous nature of their location, require 24-hour lighting. Seaport lights are designed to withstand both the corrosive effects of both saltwater and exhaust fumes while maintaining safe light levels for workers. Choosing lights that were designed to withstand this unique environment is absolutely essential.
What Are The Best Seaport Lights?
Although there are many types of port lights, LEDs are generally considered to be the best for this application. In addition to being incredibly durable and able to hold up the caustic conditions, LEDs also have the longest lifespan of any bulb. This is especially important because seaport lights need to be on 24/7 to ensure the safety of dockworkers and others around the port.
What Port Light Styles Are Available?
The most popular style of seaport lighting is high mast lights. High mast lighting is designed to illuminate large areas from extremely high mounting points. Unlike high bay lights, these fixtures are intended for outdoor use and are frequently seen in transportation and pedestrian applications. High mast lights are most often mounted on 40 to 150-foot tall poles with anywhere from four to sixteen lights on each pole. These are the perfect option to replace outdated metal halide fixture, and help save money on operating costs.
