Building Perimeter Lighting

Building Perimeter Lighting

As a business owner, every decision you make will either negatively or positively impact your bottom line. When it comes to lighting, this can be one of the more expensive line items for certain businesses which is why it is paramount to get it right. When considering the building perimeter lighting applications available for your business, there are a few things you should know. Outside lighting can be a matter of safety and visibility while having a major impact on how customers view your establishment. Here are a few tips on choosing the right building perimeter lighting applications.

  • Choose the right ratings for outdoor settings. When it comes building perimeter lighting applications, they are only useful if they are dependable. Many types of lights can’t handle the outdoor elements so it’s imperative to select options designed for the outdoors. In addition to this, not all outdoor fixtures have the same ratings and capabilities, and you will also need to know your area conditions in general. For instance, if you live in a dry, hot climate with very little rain, but high levels of dust, you need an option with a focus on dust proofing whereas if you in a climate that is prone to rainy hurricanes, you need options that are submersion rated to avoid water damage.
  • Choose higher lumen outputs near doors. While providing light that spans the perimeter of your building is essential in creating a safe environment, the doorways need the most light since they will be the areas with the heaviest traffic. In addition to ensuring a high lumen output in this area, you also want to choose lighting that provides the right mix of light spread and concentrated focus. A great solution would be gooseneck lighting fixtures since they have a shade that creates a wide circle of focused illumination perfect for highlighting doors.
  • Opt for LED to save money. LED fixtures are the best way to save money on both energy costs and the overall costs of replacing fixtures. LED lights will last for a remarkably long time without issue so you will need fewer replacements and less maintenance costs over the years. In addition to the bulbs being longer lasting than other options, the fixtures themselves, as well as the internal drivers, are long lasting since LEDs operate at lower temperatures to avoid burning up internal elements.
