LED Street Lights to Support Various Applications in Modern City

The main component of the city lighting project is street lighting. The lighting of street lights is especially significant at night. Currently, traditional street lighting are being phased out in favor of LED street lights. Because of its great luminous efficiency, long life, low energy consumption, and ease of installation, led street lights are widely employed.

Different types of street lights can be applied in a variety of situations depending on their appearance, installation method, wattage, and beam angle. These applications include main streets, residential streets, road intersections, plazas, parks, outdoor industrial and logistics areas, etc. Nowadays, LED street lights are becoming more and more fashionable, and high energy-saving LED lamps are designed to replace traditional HPS and MH lamps. We believe that when designing a successful street light, you need to pay attention to the aesthetics, wattage, light efficiency, light distribution, street lighting certification and CCT/CRI, etc.

When your street light is perfect in several aspects, it is in the competition of the project which it can win, and the different installation methods make its application range very wide. In recent years, with the maturity of LED technology, photocell and sensors are increasingly applied to LED street lights to achieve energy-saving and semi-intelligent functions. LED street lights with smart controllers can make your roads, squares and parks very advanced, and it will also make your city very modern.

From street to highway, its easily to be seen in our day lives!

 

Street lighting

Both rural and urban areas have a variety of streets, such as primary streets, secondary streets, etc. Different street lamp situations require different types of street lights, different wattages, and different light distributions. As technology advances, LED street lights are a cost-effective and sustainable option for roads and paths in cities, towns, and rural areas.

Highway lighting

The expressway is the road connecting the city and the city, and the road connecting the city and the countryside. In this case, there will be no non-motorized lanes for motor vehicles and pedestrians. In addition, the road surface of the expressway is very smooth, there are no obvious potholes, the road condition is maintained well, and the safety factor is high. Therefore, most highways do not need to install street lights. At the same time, considering that the cost is too high, it is not suitable to install street lights on the highway.

In the following special cases, such as high-speed entrances and exits, bridges on high-speed roads, roundabouts, etc., high-power street lamps can be used to provide necessary lighting for drivers to drive safely. For roundabouts, we probably need to install flood lights instead of street lights. And the installation height of flood lights can reach 12-15m or higher.

Intersection lighting

These Types of street lights are often used at road and street intersections so that drivers must make quick decisions when they spot potential hazards. In this case, LED street lights should be placed at intervals to keep the light even and eliminate the driver’s eyestrain. When necessary, high mast lights can be set up at intersections to provide necessary lighting for drivers and pedestrians.

Square lighting

Squares are an important part of people’s lives, people spend more time dancing/chatting/playing in squares at night, so square lighting has become very necessary. Plaza lighting usually uses LED area lights and LED flood lights, but there are also many LED street light manufacturers that have also developed light distributions suitable for plaza lighting to reduce costs and expand the variety of product functions.

Parking lot lighting

With the development of the economy, automobiles have become the main means of transportation for the public. Some shopping malls, supermarkets, and hospitals will be equipped with parking lots to provide convenience for people, and the parking lot lighting is thus generated. Good parking lot lighting not only protects pedestrians but also makes a good impression to protect your business. LED street lights and post-top lights provide bright, energy-efficient lighting for parking lots of all sizes. Different parking lots also require lights with various mounting options, including straight-arm pole mounts, adjustable skid mounts, wall mounts, and more.

Outdoor industrial and logistics area lighting

We know that any large warehouse and logistics area has a lot of space in front of the entrance to facilitate the passage of vehicles through the area. Therefore, this large space needs to be illuminated by lamps at night to avoid the existence of dark areas, otherwise, it may increase the driver’s blind spot and increase potential risks. At the same time, the loading and unloading area also needs enough lighting to guide the driver, which is also convenient for workers to load and unload goods.

Non-Motorized vehicles and sidewalk lighting

They mainly refer to the roads that pedestrians and non-motor vehicles pass through. Usually, this type of lighting is combined with road lighting. During lighting design, motor vehicle lanes, non-motor vehicles, and sidewalks will be arranged according to the requirements of the project. Usually, a light will be set up to illuminate non-motorized lanes and sidewalks. The purpose of setting lighting on such roads is to provide safe and comfortable lighting conditions for pedestrians and consumers. Lighting should enable pedestrians to walk safely, recognize each other’s faces, locate them correctly, and prevent criminal activity.

Some things to look into while choosing the right and quality LED street light

Wattage of street lights:

Wattage is usually an important factor for types of street lights. When other conditions (light pole height, road width, light pole distance, boom length, boom angle, distance between the light pole and the road) are all constant, the higher the wattage of the street light, the better the lighting effect. However, many people may be unfamiliar with how to choose the wattage of LED street lights.

Efficiency of street lights:

Light efficiency is an important parameter of LED lamps. As mentioned in the previous section, we can replace 250W high-pressure sodium lamps with 100W LED street lamps. Because the high light efficiency of LEDs is the important reason. For example, in 201, the light efficiency of LED lamps was generally around 120lm/W, and now the light efficiency of LED street lights can reach 150lm/w, which means that we can use 80W LED street lamps to achieve 100W street lights in 2015.

That’s why many projects or tenders have clear requirements for lighting efficiency. The main reason is that high light efficiency means that we can achieve the desired lighting effect with less energy consumption. It is also clear in these bidding documents that different light effects can have different scores. High light efficiency means that you can compete with many competitors and stand out.

Optic of street lights:

Street light LEDs are mainly used to illuminate urban/rural roads and some other outdoor areas, generally reducing road accidents and increasing residents’ sense of safety. For suppliers, types of street lights with different wattages and different light efficiency are not enough to meet the needs of different customers. Customers usually require a street light that can be adapted to illuminate different road conditions. F

CRI and CCT of street lights:

CRI stands for the quality of light and its ability to realistically reproduce the color of an object. The highest CRI value is 100. For LED street lights, usually CRI70 can meet your light quality requirements. Of course, we also offer the option CRI80 to better represent the color of the illuminated object. CCT (Correlated Color Temperature) is a measure used to describe the relative color appearance of LED light sources.

CCT indicates whether the light source is yellowish, whitish, or bluish. The unit of CCT is Kelvin (absolute temperature unit). 2700K is “warm”, 4000K is “neutral” and 5700K is “cool”. More and more road lighting now requires 4000K, 3000K, 2700K, and even lower 2200K. This is because low color temperatures are thought to have less of an impact on humans, animals, and plants.
