About LED Street Light Fixtures
Street lights are fixtures placed along sidewalks and pathways to illuminate the walkway at night. They typically have a square or rectangular base with a black or dark bronze finish. The light itself is mounted on brackets typically attached to street poles, and the entire unit is usually around 15 feet tall. Street lights are an important safety measure, as they help to ensure that pedestrians can see where they are going in the dark. They also deter crime by making it more difficult for would-be criminals to operate in the shadows. As a result, street lights play an important role in keeping communities safe.
How do LED street light fixtures work and what benefits do they offer over traditional streetlights?
LED street light fixtures are preferred over traditional streetlights for a variety of reasons.
LEDs are more energy efficient, meaning they require less power to produce the same amount of light as traditional bulbs. This makes them a more environmentally friendly option, as it results in less energy being wasted. Additionally, LED street lights have a longer lifespan than traditional bulbs, which means they need to be replaced less often. This saves both money and resources.
Better Light output
They also have a better lumen output, providing a brighter and more even light that is less likely to cause glare or shadows.
LED fixtures provide a number of benefits over standard light bulbs. They have a better light output, providing a brighter and more even light that is less likely to cause glare or shadows. This is a very important feature for street lights as it improves the visibility for drivers and pedestrians alike.
LED lights are more environmentally friendly
LED streetlights are more environmentally friendly, as they contain no toxic materials and their lifespan is up to 50,000 hours.
Reduce maintenance costs
Since LED fixtures have a longer lifespan than traditional bulbs, they need to be replaced less often. This saves both money in terms of purchasing products but also saves labor costs as well as allow maintenance staff to focus on more important tasks.
Evenly distributed lighting
Finally, LED streetlights can be targeted to specific areas, making them more effective at evenly distributing light. As a result, LED streetlights offer a number of advantages over traditional streetlights.
Mounting Options for Street Lights
Street lights are most commonly mounted with two types of brackets : slip fitter or the universal bracket.
Slip fitters slide directly onto the pole and are tightened with a set screw. This type of mount is most common for round poles. Once mounted, the fixture can then be adjusted up or down the pole to the desired height.
The second type of mount is the universal bracket, which attaches directly to the square pole with bolts or to a flat surface. This type of mount is more versatile and allows the street lights to be used in a variety of applications.
At ECO LED MART, we also offer bullhorn accessories which enable the mounting of multiple light fixtures on the same pole. This is common with parking lot lights.
Advantage of using LED street lights for municipalities
LED street light fixtures offer many benefits over traditional streetlights, including lower energy consumption, longer lifespan, and improved light distribution. When choosing LED street lights for a municipality or city park system, it is important to consider all the pertinent factors including the wattage output (light level), beam angle, color temperature, and the warranty period. More important than the warranty period is what it covers and whether or not it's a seamless experience rather than a warranty that makes you jump through hoops.
LED light fixtures offer way more lumens per watt than your existing street lights. It is of course important to choose an equivalent of your existing fixture but it doesn't hurt to overshoot it a little bit as LED 's brightness degrades over time and it's hard to tell when you might need to replace it to continue to meet your municipalities' standards.
LED street lights come in a variety of narrow beam angles and allow you to pinpoint the light exactly where you need it the most and avoid it spilling over into areas that don't need it as much. That's one of the main differences between street lights and your typical flood light which offers wider beam angles.
This is especially important in residential areas where the purpose is to illuminate the streets while keeping residents home safe and private.
When municipalities are looking to replace their streetlights with LED fixtures, it's important to choose the right color temperature for the area. Cool white light is often used in commercial and industrial areas, as it provides a brighter light that is more effective in showcasing products or identifying hazards. Warm white light is more commonly used in residential areas, as it creates a more welcoming environment and is less harsh on the eyes.
At ECO LED MART, our LED street lights have adjustable color temperatures so that you can find the perfect light for your needs.
Warranty Period & What's Covered
When choosing an LED street light fixture, it is important to consider the warranty period and what is covered. Many manufacturers offer a 5-year or longer warranty, but it is important to make sure you read the finer details as they might not cover common failures. At ECO LED MART, our street lights come with a 5-year full replacement warranty that covers any failures, no questions asked.
