What Is Perimeter Lighting Design?
Perimeter lighting design is a form of security lighting where lights are installed at the perimeter of a large outdoor space. It either lights up the perimeter area or the area that’s nearest the perimeter. The lights are either pointed along the fence line, pointing inwards or outwards.
How Do You Calculate the Ideal Perimeter Lighting Layout?
Creating a lighting plan is a good first step. The plan allows you to create a physical layout of the outdoor space. Then you can add lights and poles around the perimeter in specific locations. The plan calculates foot candle readings along the perimeter to meet your required light levels.
What Are the Typical Perimeter Lighting Standards?
There is no standard, per se. There may be requirements based on location. They need to work with electronic surveillance systems like cameras and video recorders.
Does Perimeter Fence Lighting Design Differ from Perimeter Security Lighting Design?
This is two ways of saying the same thing. One difference is if the area is using security cameras. Security perimeter lighting may have a higher foot candle requirement.
