Commercial Electric Lighting fixtures can either be high intensity
discharge lights for parking, landscape, and security lighting, or they can be
architectural building that minimize power consumption and highly the most
important features of buildings without overpowering the aesthetic with too much
visible equipment. Having a
photometric analysis performed on your client’s site first will help you
determine which commercial electric lighting fixtures should be purchase, the
specific number of luminaires you will need, and where best to mount them to
minimize glare and light trespass.
Having this analysis done for you by RLLD Commercial Lighting will
greatly reduce the problematics and guesswork involved in selecting fixture
type, wattages, and manufacturer brand.
It also passes on savings to your client who will be much more inclined
to accept a proposal that reduces the overall wattage of the system in total and
minimizes as well the actual number of commercial electric lighting fixtures
used to illuminate the facility.
This is now possible because newly engineered fixture designs have
made it possible to produce more lumens with fewer watts. Most of the lights installed in
commercial properties these days operate at 250 watts or less. Dark sky laws in many cities now mandate
a maximum wattage of no more than 250 watts, so proposing newer fixtures of this
type to a client not only offers them the promise of lower power bills, but also
ensures compliance with local lighting codes. RLLD Commercial Lighting provides
a full selection of HID commercial electric lighting fixtures for every outdoor
Full cutoff parking lot lights from leading US manufacturers feature
the latest improvements in optics and reflector technology. These commercial electric lighting
fixtures are engineered specifically with dark sky compliance and energy savings
in mind. Combining lower wattage
and state of the art, glare free, directional lighting control, these parking
lot lights will generate higher footcandle levels with less power. They allow you to both upgrade the
quality of lighting in your client’s lot and significantly reduce commercial
electric bills at the same time.
Landscape and Security
landscape lighting systems normally use both high voltage and low voltage
commercial electric lights. The
mounting locations and types of luminaires used varies greatly on the terrain
and general size of the property, so there is consequently no hard fast set of
commercial electric lighting choices to which the landscape lighting designer is
limited. A few general rules do
apply, however, when it comes to outdoor security lighting. The larger a client’s property is, the
more it will have dark areas covered by shadows. Floodlights controlled by motion
detectors will dispel these areas of darkness if an intruder is sensed by the
automated system. They will remain
on only long enough to discourage an intruder, and to give security time to
respond. This is an excellent way
to both protect your client’s property and implement a very energy efficient
form of commercial electric lighting that only operates when needed.
Commercial Lighting has a wide selection of electric lighting fixtures that are
engineered for parking garage lighting.
These fixtures are available in HID and fluorescent models and are
intended for lighting both horizontal floor space and the vertical cube. The importance of vertical footcandle
levels cannot be emphasized enough.
Motorists require vertical lighting for proper depth perception and
navigation around obstructions such as columns and barricades.
analysis will quickly reveal potential problem areas in your client’s
parking garage. The goal to aim for
is not to flood the facility with bright light, but rather to create clear
contrast between objects, driving lanes, guard rails, parking spots, and other
vehicles. By charting out this
information first, we can help you create select your fixtures with greater
precision and find the best angle of incidence of installing them within the
a group of corporate buildings may intimidate your clients if they assume that a
large number of commercial electric lighting fixtures will be needed to
illuminate the structure. Again, as
in the case with landscape lights and parking garage lighting, the number of
actual fixtures has less to do with the outcome than the positioning and type of
commercial electric lights you install.
Fluorescent wall packs, canopy lights, and sign lights can be used to
highlight the most important features on a building and provide visibility for
pedestrian traffic around the building at night. Many of these low voltage and highly
energy efficient commercial electric lights can reduce power costs for your
client by as much as 40%.
