An LED Flood light design is a lighting plan that shows how well an area will be lit after LED Flood lights are installed. The design calculates light levels and shows the customer where light is and is not. They can then determine if this solution meets their requirements and needs.

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.

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.

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.

This depends on the application and the space you are trying to light. A small area behind a warehouse is fairly easy to light and does not require high-lumen outlights. Larger expansive areas will need larger, more powerful lights with higher lumen output.

You should consider adding some side shields to the lights to block direct view of the light source.
