Correctional Facility Lighting Fixtures

What is Considered Correctional Grade Lighting?

There are two types of lighting, vandal-proof fixtures, and general security lighting. The former are installed in areas, like inmate cells. It needs to be able to resist attempts to dismantle it. The second type is security lighting, such as outdoor high mast lights. That provides lighting to all outdoor areas or is used in common areas within the prison. LED Lighting Supply offers the second type of lighting.

As with all LEDs, you should expect lower energy costs and significantly lower lighting maintenance service. Correctional Institutions will discover LEDs are the perfect choice for safety and illumination. Correctional workers will appreciate the consistent, dependable lighting that LED provides.

LED Lights are Instant On and Instant Off – Important for Security

LED Lights turn on instantly. There is no lapse in security lighting if, for some reason, the lights go off.

Areas Within a Prison Complex We Can Provide LED Lighting For

We can provide outdoor and indoor common area lighting, and general area lighting. We do not offer vandal-proof lighting. We do supply retrofit kits for existing vandal-proof fixtures. This is a cost-effective way of converting these fixtures over to LED.

American Correctional Association Lighting Standards

The American Correctional Association provides the recommended best practices for cell lighting levels. We do not offer inmate cell lighting solutions. Instead, focus on general security lighting and lighting used in common areas within the prison.

Types of LED Lighting to Use at a Correctional Facility or Prison

Indoors: We recommend high bay lights, low bay lights, canopies, and in-ceiling panel lights.

Outdoors: We have a lot of experience with this. The best options are wall pack lights, high mast lights, flood lights, and parking lot lights.

What Type of Correctional Facility LED Lighting Have We Supplied to Prisons and Correctional Facilities?

Yes, we have worked with several state and federal prisons providing lights. Those include high mast lights, flood lights, canopies, and wall pack lights. Also metal halide to LED retrofit kits.

What is the Difference Between Vandal Resistant and Vandal Proof Light Fixtures?

A vandal-resistant fixture can withstand abuse in public areas. You’ll find them in a parking garage or school. A vandal-proof fixture can withstand attempted efforts to gain entry or dismantle the light fixture. Never substitute a vandal-resistant fixture when a vandal-proof light is required.

Typical Prison Lighting Standards to Follow

For outdoor lighting applications, you want a lot of light. For indoor common areas, prison lighting has a direct impact on morale inside the facility. Dimly lit areas can make people feel depressed while lighting that is similar to sunlight can improve mood.

For common area applications, you want rugged, industrial-grade lighting so they last.

Make sure the fixtures you buy are over 130 lumens per watt. Many are over 150 lumens per watt. You also want to look for UL/ETL and DLC listed options.

Can you Retrofit Existing Fixtures Inside a Correction Facility with LED?

We can retrofit both metal halide and fluorescent fixtures, including vandal-proof fixtures with LED Retrofit Kits. These kits are designed to replace old lighting technology with LED components.

What is the Best Color Temperature to Use in a Correctional Facility?

The best color temperatures are 4000K and 5000K. We also offer color adjustable LED Light fixtures that you can select the best color temperature with a toggle switch.

How Well Do LED Lights Penetrate Fog?

Lighting that penetrates fog has more to do with color temperature than the type of light. It’s well known lower color temperatures perform better than higher color temperatures. So, 4000K will work better than 5000K.
