Wall Pack Lights:

Wall Pack Lights If you are a business owner, you might not realize it but you probably already have several wall pack lights around your building. This is because these are the most common forms of exterior lighting seen around commercial structures. These lights are all in one units that just need to be wired into an electrical source for power and you will have a bright, flooding light.

Slide 2:

There are some issues with some types of wall pack lights which might or might not affect you. That is why when you are making your choices for your lights, you should talk to an expert. Armed with a lighting schematic of your desired illumination around your business, an expert can help you to narrow down the many options available to find the ones which are the best for your specific project. Without the right lights, you might put the safety and security of your business at risk, and in some communities, you could be breaking municipal codes or even the law.

Slide 3:

You have invested a lot into your business, and you will want it to be safe and secure. The best way to do this is to ensure that the exterior of your building is well lit on all sides. For this purpose, most businesses turn to the cost-effective brightness offered by wall pack lights . These lights are easy to install and cost effective in price. That makes purchasing them in the large quantities required to light all around the average commercial business.

Slide 4:

For these bright, exterior lights, you will want energy efficient bulbs in the fixtures. This is why the most popular options for wall pack lights are either metal halide or high pressure sodium lights. Both of these are very efficient in their operation. If you want to have your lights tied into a motion detector, you will not want to choose these bulbs, though. This is because high pressure sodium and metal halide lights do not light up to their fullest brightness immediately upon receiving power. Instead, these need both a brief warm up and cool down time before and after lighting. Most businesses will have separate lights with their motion detectors that are equipped with either incandescent or halogen bulbs, both of which are perfect motion operated choices.

Slide 5:

Some places will require that you do not contribute to the already problematic light pollution. This means that the wall pack lights around your business should not be able to be seen above the roof line. The beams from all of your lights should be directed downward. In order to achieve this effect, you will need zero sight line wall packs. Ask a local electrician or architect if these lights will adhere to the local municipal light codes. If you are unsure, seek another expert's advice. Choosing this equipment is not difficult to do, but if you need assistance in finding the best wall pack lights for your home or business, it would be best to ask an expert who will help to guide you through the steps for the selection of these  lights.
