What kind of lighting is best used for outdoor parking?
When creating a concept for commercial parking lot lights there are three variables to consider:
Design: A high quality manufacturer will typically have a person on staff who can help with the design and actually do a lighting simulation that will show placement and expected light after installation is complete distribution is recommended for the perimeter.
Light quality: This can range from a warmer color temperature to a cooler color temperature. Ensuring that the lighting is uniform is also important. When the lighting isn’t evenly distributed, it can cause hot spots and cold spots on sections of parking lot causing glare and safety hazards
Lighting level: This is defined as the total light output from the area between one-foot above and six-feet below the light source. Lighting levels above 500 foot candles becomes a problem because it can cause excessive glare and eye fatigue as well as safety hazards such as pedestrian accidents during night hours
Many businesses will need a variety of lighting for their parking lots. For example, you might want lamps with a circular distribution and cooler lumen temperature for your parking lot. However, if your parking lot has a perimeter walkway, you might want a lateral distribution lamp with a warmer lumen color temperature.
