Landscape Lighting and Commercial Properties
When you own a commercial business, it’s important not to overlook your Seattle outdoor landscape lighting setup. Exterior lighting for commercial properties is a very important aspect for security, function, and aesthetic reasons.
Whether your exterior lighting is part of your landscape or hardscape, when you have a commercial property, you want to be sure your customers are safe and that your property looks attractive.
Lighting is a great security measure that helps keep your property secure from break-ins as well as helps to keep your parking areas secure or employees safe while on the job.
Outdoor lights include direct lighting wherever it is needed. Direct lighting should be distributed evenly across the exterior of the property, and not placed where it is unnecessary or unwanted. When setting up, install at angles to avoid glare and reduce light trespass so areas of the exterior stay in focus to observers and video surveillance camera systems.
Landscape areas should be aesthetically pleasing while also offering some ambient light to see by. These types of lighting fixtures are less powerful but still very useful for commercial properties.
LED light fixtures are fast becoming the preferred choice in both indoor and outdoor lighting. They not only offer instant to full brightness, but can do so even in cold temperatures.
LED is a light emitting diode that produces visible light when electrical current passes through the semiconductor. It has long service life when compared to regular lighting. It gives off less glare and has minimal light trespass.
Controlling LED lighting fixtures is a snap, as many can be placed on timers or remote controlled. You can also have options such as continuous dimming.
T5HO lighting is a linear fluorescent lamp ideal for high bay applications and several other applications. Commonly, they are used in warehouses, gymnasiums, factories, and superstores. They offer proven performance in reliability, flexibility, and energy savings.
HID lamps are High-intensity discharge lamps that utilize a gas-discharge to produce light from an electric arc between electrodes within the tube. The tube is filled with both gas and metal salts.
Both the T5HO and HID are still very appropriate for commercial and industrial use. And all of these technologies will give good color quality and superior performance when compared to older technologies.
Exterior wall-mount fixtures will provide sufficient exterior lighting for walkways. They are important lighting sources for those entering and exiting the building during dark hours. They provide an ambient light for safety on the building’s exterior.
