Benefits and Selection of LED Outdoor Flood Lights

Nowadays, many factories and enterprises use LED flood lights for lighting, but the price of LED flood lights is higher than that of general energy-saving lamps. So why are LED flood lights still so popular?

Benefits of LED outdoor flood lights

LED outdoor flood lights refer to the LED lighting fixtures used in production sites such as factories. As a reliable landscape lighting manufacturer, we share with you that if LED floodlights are classified according to their lighting functions, they can be divided into general lighting and partial lighting. General lighting usually means that LED floodlights are uniformly placed above or on the side walls of the working area, ensuring that the light can shine on the place where workers work. Partial lighting refers to the key lighting of a certain part of the working area by LED floodlights. This lighting method can enhance the lighting effect of a specific working area on the basis of general lighting.

LED outdoor flood lights have low power consumption, high color rendering index, strong earthquake resistance, long service life, and are environmentally friendly. They are an excellent choice for industrial plants, gas stations, and other places, and they are also relatively safe lighting fixtures. The stability of LED outdoor flood lights is relatively high, and the service life can reach 25,000 to 50,000 hours, which is more than 10 times longer than that of traditional light sources. They are environmentally friendly, without pollution or thermal radiation, and do not harm the eyes and skin. They also have good color rendering, presenting the real colors of objects more vividly. Our products including outdoor retaining wall lights.

How to choose good LED outdoor flood lights?

We also have outdoor hardscape lighting.

  • Power selection: The power of LED outdoor flood lights ranges from 20W to 1000W. But how much power should you choose? If you plan to use the light for backyard, barbecue parties, or outdoor activities, the lux level should be around 100. How to find the corresponding wattage? For example, if you have a yard of 50 square meters, the required brightness is 50x100 = 5000 lumens. For LED with 130 lumens per watt, the required power is 5000/130 = 38.5W. Therefore, a 40W LED would be suitable. This value will increase as your backyard size and lux requirements increase.

  • Service life: Lights with longer service life are always your best choice, because the cost of purchasing and installing new lights is high, especially if you need to replace them on a large scale. If the light is used for 10 hours a day, the LED can last for 22 years.

  • Waterproof: Waterproof is an important feature of LED outdoor flood lights. To work under rain, snow, or storms, the light should have at least an IP65 protection level.

  • Heat dissipation: A good flood light should have a heat dissipation system that transfers heat from the internal structure to the outside. Aluminum is a good conductive material for making heat dissipation systems. We can choose LEDs made of aluminum or related alloys.
