How do I Select Which Wall Pack to use?
Here’s a general rule for replacing old Metal Halide / HID fixtures:
100 Watts – choose a LED fixture producing 3000 to 5000 lumens.
150 Watts – choose a LED fixture producing 5000 to 7500 lumens.
250 Watts – choose a LED fixture producing 7500 to 15,000 lumens.
400 Watts – choose a LED fixture producing 15,000 to 25,000 lumens.
You can determine the specific output by understanding the following factors:
- What is the current wattage of your existing wall packs?
- How many fixtures are there? Is the lighting adequate?
- How high are the fixtures mounted on the wall?
- Is is meant for general lighting or security lighting?
Choose a style:
- Forward throw flood: best suited for “flooding” of the space in front of the wall pack. Best for security lighting.
- Full Cutoff: these would be your best choice if you are concerned about Dark Sky Compliance.
- Semi-Cutoff: A marriage of the above two lights. Not quite full flood, and not quite full cutoff.
You should also consider:
Voltage: 100-277V or 277-480V.
Motion Sensor: Dim the lights when the no one is around
Photocells: Do you want the lights to turn on at dusk and off at dawn?
Color Temperature: 4000K or 5000K
A few more things to consider before your purchase:
Look for good product reviews and make sure the company is reputable.
Find a vendor that understands your requirements. They can provide professional recommendations based on your needs.
You like how the product looks.

Do you sell Dark Sky Compliant Wall Packs?
