Most people rarely put much thought into floodlights, instead they probably think floodlights are a one-size-fits-all type of product. This couldn’t be further from the truth, as floodlights have a big job to do, and no shortage of pressure to do it! These are just a few of the requirements for your average Floodlight;
Most Floodlights have to light up very large spaces, such as football pitches or carparks. There`s two major factors behind this; light spread and light strength. A big decider for both is a good lumen output. Take the Modular 600 Flood Light from Litho, a flood light designed for Airports, Exhibition Halls and Sports Lighting. This floodlight is the only 180 Lumen per Watt light on the World Market, being a real-standout product in the lighting world. Applications like these need to make sure there are no dark spaces which is why this flood light has a lumen output of 108,000, enough strength and spread for a sizeable project like a football pitch. No one wants to watch a match and not be able to see who has the ball!
Outdoor lighting is always going to be vulnerable in some way or another. Floodlights can experience some type of problem or need to be upgraded at some point. Flood lights can pose a problem here as they are often very high grade installations, so when a modification job does have to be done, make sure you have all the necessary tools to do so. If you currently have an Decorative Lantern, it can be a real headache if you want to change over completely to a new product, so the best course of action is to get an LED Retrofit Kit from Litho. This kit will provide your flood light with better lighting, reduced maintenance costs and an easy way to upgrade with developing technology.
It`s fairly obvious there’s plenty of choice nowadays when it comes to Floodlights. Get in contact with us at Litho Circuits for more information on any of our LED Lighting products, or to have a chat about the best possible high bay lighting solutions for your project.
