We Have Heard Terrible Advice About Public Lighting from xiuxiu's blog


There are many different ideas in the public lighting(CLASSICLEDLIGHT) industry about what is good advice and what is bad. Here's a quick overview of some of the bad public lighting recommendations we've heard and why.

1. The light level does not matter

Light levels are important for any public lighting project. If you don't see what you need, then the light is useless. The level of light needs to be considered. If this is a sign, people need to be able to read it. If it is safe and secure in the parking lot is the main concern. The level of lighting varies from project to project and must be specific to the task. You don't want your backyard to light up like noon in the afternoon, but you don't want the parking lot to be so dark that you can't find them if you put down the keys at night.

2. Color doesn't matter

Have you seen the yellow lights seen along the highway? They are very hard on your eyes compared to the refreshing white light. You are used to seeing things during the day, the sun is about 5900-7500 Kelvin. In the evening, you don't need the sun to shine on you, but you want to see the eyes as close as possible to natural light. With amber low-pressure sodium lamps, you can hardly tell the color of the car, but the LEDs produce brighter light, making it easier to identify colors, shapes, and details. Of course, under environmental conditions such as coastal areas, low-pressure sodium or amber lamps must be used to reduce the impact on wildlife.

3. The higher the wattage, the better the light

Each application requires a different level of public lighting, but higher wattage light does not always produce better light. LEDs provide amazing light at lower wattages than any other type of lamp. You also don't want to have a huge light on a small sign, or a huge high-power floodlight, which can make travelers feel blind. Conversely, using the correct wattage light to provide a specific task of public lighting will save money because no energy is wasted. Your eyes will also be easier.

4. You need full glare all night long.

For security reasons, we need glare for public lighting all night. However, many applications allow for dimming options. In some time of the night, when no one is there, wasting energy on full-intensity lighting is a waste. Conversely, if the area still requires lighting, it is now possible to dim the fixtures with LEDs, saving money while still providing some public lighting. When there are people in the area, the area can even set up a motion activator to restore the light to maximum intensity. A sudden return to full intensity will also alert nearby people that someone is triggering the light.

So you have it. Do you have any suggestions about public lighting?
