What Is a LED Flood Light Design?
A LED Flood light design is a lighting plan that shows how well and area will be lit after LED Flood lights are installed. The design calculates light levels and shows the customer where light is and where it’s not. They can then determine if this solution meets their requirements and needs.
What Are the Typical Design Standards When Using Commercial Flood Lights?
Standards are application based. Flood lights used in perimeter security lighting would have a different standard than a high power flood stadium light used to light up a high school football field. Understanding the application, need and any local by law can all be addressed in creating a successful flood light calculation.
When Do You Need to Do LED Flood Light Design?
The main requirement is to understand the physical area where the floodlights are intended to be installed. Being able to “install” flood lights inside an area that closely resembles the physical location of the customer’s site allows us to properly light up the area. Knowing where lights can be mounted is also essential, and knowing the mounting height allows us to accurately create a lighting design that will help the customer.
What Is the Difference Between A Flood Light Calculator And Flood Light Design?
For us at LED Lighting Supply, they are the same thing. We would produce a lighting plan / design instead of using a calculator. Calculators do exist, but they do not produce results we feel comfortable with. They do not show light levels across the physical location, nor calculate light balance and determine if the light is balanced across the entire outdoor space.
How Many Lumens Are Required For Flood Lights Used In a Commercial or Industrial Location?
Lumens per square foot is another way of saying foot candles. 1 lumen per square foot is equal to 1 foot candle. Understanding the purpose of the outdoor area and determining light levels required is all paramount in determining foot candle levels or lumens required.
