For offices and commercial buildings, October is the perfect time to setup LED wall pack lights. With Daylight Saving Time ending very soon (November 5), the fixtures can provide extra illumination and security during long periods of darkness.
There are several models to choose from when selecting an LED wall pack light for your building. Below covers three types with very useful applications for the upcoming winter season.
LED Wall Pack Lights 101
An LED wall pack light is a rectangular fixture that provides general illumination around buildings. The outdoor rated units are typically mounted on the wall, with the beam pointing upwards. Previously, metal halide technology was used to power traditional wall pack lamps. These days, LEDs are proving to be better options, allowing operators to toggle the lights, select from a range of color temperatures and benefit from lengthy lifespans (50,000+ hours for LEDs).
Types of LED Wall Pack Lights
LED wall pack lights can be equipped with different features, depending on their intended applications. For establishments operating within urban locations, units with cutoff shields or covers should be used. The lighting components ensure the beams are always pointed directly up, contributing to less light spillage.
You can find different types of wallpack online by visiting Larson Electronics or any other commercial lighting superstore.
LED wall pack lights with dusk-to-dawn or motion sensors are particularly useful for improving security around low-activity sections of the building. The fixtures automatically turn on when ambient light levels are low (dusk-to-dawn) or when it senses movement (motion sensor). For maximum illumination, this type of wall pack lamp is not cutoff. Instead, the fixture may feature a diffused cover.
Individuals who want to boost aesthetics around a commercial building can benefit from deploying RGB wall pack lights. The luminaries are capable of producing up to 16 million different color combinations using RGB diodes. Remote controlled features offer hands-free configuration and easily accessible color profile settings.
