General

What’s LED Shipyard Lighting?

LED Shipyard lighting involves LED High Mast Lights, high-power LED Flood Lights, or high pole lights. Many lights placed on a single pole in a 360-degree radius provide good visibility over a large space.

What Types of Fixtures Can You Use in a Container Port?

For the most part, they are either high-power high mast lights or high-power flood lights. These are the most common types of Container Yard Lighting.

What Are the Best Lights to Use for a Shipyard Light Tower?

We would recommend a high mast light with a large beam angle, like 120 or 150 degrees.

BEFORE YOU BUY

Can you retrofit existing LED Shipyard Lighting fixtures? Or is it best to use new fixtures?

We would recommend using new fixtures. Take advantage of the great optic packages associated with them. Retrofit lights have typically only 120-degree distributions. You’ll limit your distribution to 120 degrees unless the lights have an optic lens.

What Are the Best Lights for Illuminating the Loading Dock at Our Container Port?

If the dock has a roof above, then LED Canopy Lights work extremely well. Otherwise, you can light up this space with pole or wall-mounted flood lights or LED Wall Pack Lights.

How Can We Reduce Dark Spots at Our Shipping Terminal and Container Yard?

Dark spots appear when installed lights without understanding how they will perform. We recommend you create a lighting plan before buying. This way, you can discover beforehand the dark spots before any money’s spent.

Do You Have Lighting Options for the Container Cranes?

We offer vibration-resistant flood lighting, 3G or 5G. You can mount these lights on cranes.

Can You Run a LED Shipyard Lighting Plan?

Yes, we can, and we have. To date, we have done over 40 lighting plans for ports around the world.

Are Your Lights Resistant to Salt Corrosion?

Yes, we offer a marine-grade finish on many of the lights we would install at a shipyard. This is different from a fixture that has been saltwater tested. The finish is far more durable.

Do I Need Marine-Grade Fixtures for a Seaport?

We recommend it, it’s a small price to pay for good insurance on ensuring your lights will operate for years to come.
