Why choose a MyLEDLightingGuide Flood Light?
1. Four Beam Angles to meet any flood or spotlight requirement
Wide / Flood Beam
Flood light optics come with different light distributions: symmetric and asymmetric. They have different beams to suit spot, flood, area and se lighting applications.
For installations where accurate lighting and control for confined spaces over long distances. Used for accent lighting, column grazing, flag poles and tall facades.
A narrow beam offers a focused distribution. It is ideal for spaces where there's a need for a tight, symmetrical distribution. Used to accentuate storefronts, monuments, and landscapes.
A medium flood beam for area lighting or high intensity lighting applications. Used in spaces that need a wide uniform pattern and a specific coverage.
A wide flood beam for general lighting applications. Used where broad, uniform lighting over a large area. Applications include security lighting and parking lots.
NEMA Beam Spread Classifications
|Beam Description||NEMA Type||Beam Spread in Degrees|
|Very narrow||1||10°- 18°|
|Medium narrow||3||29°- 46°|
|Medium wide||5||70°- 100°|
|Very Wide||7||130° and above|
2. Replace 250W, 400W and 1000W Metal Halide
Replace 400W HID
Replace 1000W HID
Our LED Flood-Fixtures produce from 1700 lumens to 125,000 lumens. We can easily replace 1000W-2000W HID consuming 66% less energy. These lumen packages are more than enough to replace traditional style HPS and Metal Halide models.
We can produce a free photometric evaluation of your outdoor space to show you how well our LED Flood lights work, what model is appropriate and what optic provides the best results for you outdoor space.

3. Many Optics Options for Flood Lights
LEDs are directional lights. Their light's focussed and with optics lights up the intended location. They have diodes with individual optics and discharge light evenly across surfaces. Optics control the illumination pattern by delivering their designed beam pattern.
Optics and reflectors provide the necessary for providing the optimal beam distribution. Optics are either polycarbonate (PC) or acrylic (PPMA). These lenses have excellent optical properties.
Typical flood light optics can range as low as 10-15° all the way to 150°. Each has its designed purpose.
* Choosing the Right Optic
What optic or beam pattern is right for you? There's no need to guess. We will create a FREE photometric with real foot candle and light distributions. There is no risk - you're installation will be a success.
4. High Voltage FloodLight Fixtures - from 100V to 480V
We offer both standard voltage options of 100V-277V (standard) and high voltage options of 347V-480V (optional).
Our flood lights are available with a 10kVA-20kVA surge suppression on some models. This keeps your led investment safe in unsafe weather conditions.
5. 4000K and 5000K Color Temperatures
We offer LED color temperature options in both 4000K and 5000K. 5000K is a perfect replacement for Metal Halide. 4000K is also an option for those states requiring a slightly warmer light. Other color temperatures available upon request.
Both offer a significant improvement over high pressure sodium lights, rated at 2200K.
6. Control Ready and Dimmable
Another great thing about some LED lights is they can dim down. This means you can turn off or dim each fixture in the absence of motion. This does not affect the life of the LEDs, other than it will extend it. And a dimmed light uses less electricity, saving you even more on your lighting bill.
Think about this. Converting Metal Halide to LED, you might switch from 400 Watts to 120W. At night, if the light dims to 10%, that means the LED is now using 12W. That's a reduction of 388 Watts. (actually the HID lamp consumes 455W with the ballast draw, so you're saving 443W per fixture. That's huge!)
* LED Flood Lights - Using Controls
Some controls can make your lights dim, but not all LED Lights are dimmable. Make sure you have a 0-10V dimmable driver installed in your LED Flood light to dim the lights.
7. L70 Light Maintenance - up to 100,000 hours
Lumen maintenance relates to the lifespan of a light source. LED lights do not burn out like traditional lights. They maintain initial lumens longer. What happens is the light intensity fades gradually, but this usually takes years.
A 70% deterioration in light output is the point at which the human eye notices a decline in the intensity. But, the human eye is only affected when the light intensity of a light source reaches a level of 30%.
Used 12 hours a night, our LED Flood fixtures will provide bright, maintenance free lighting for years.
8. High CRI - 70+
LEDs have the ability to render colors well. Their color rendering index is in the range of 70 to 95. Color Rendering Index (CRI) measures the color reproduction quality of artificial light sources. A high color rendering index means better light quality. Its a scale between 0 and 100. Sunlight is 100.
We offer LED Light Fixtures with CRI's starting at 70 - 85. We can optionally provide higher CRI if that's what you require.
* LED Flood Light CRI
What CRI is right for you? If the purpose of the light is general purpose, 70 CRI will work fine. If you are lighting up a retail space, like a car dealership light, then choose a higher CRI, in the 80-90 range. Higher CRI LED Chips are more expensive, so don't pay for what you don't need.
9. Energy savings and maintenance savings - up to 80%
LED lights offer high-quality light and use fewer watts than traditional HID lighting. What this means is that you will have more intense light but your power bill will decrease. Most of the traditional HID lights use between 250 and 1000 watts. That does not include the additional 15% energy used for ballast draw.
If we compare this to LEDs, which consume 40 to 300 watts – there is a 40% to 60% reduction in energy. Greater savings when lighting controls are added.
Maintenance costs drops to near zero. Most flood lights require a lift to replace or maintain. These jobs are not cheap. Installing a LED fixture that can last 10+ years mean huge maintenance savings.
10. Efficacy (Lumens Per Watt)
Luminous efficacy is the true measure of a bulb’s efficiency. It indicates the lumens produced for every watt of electricity consumed. LEDs are more efficient than traditional bulbs with a higher luminous efficacy. High quality LEDs have awesome efficacy ratings. The standard luminous efficacy is upwards of 130 lumens per watt.
To calculate luminous efficacy, divide the number of lumens the lamp generates by the watts of electricity it consumes. LED light fixtures with a higher luminous efficacy are more efficient than those with a lower luminous efficacy.
We have led fixtures rated between 130 and 170 lumens/watt. We can help you choose the right efficiency.
* LED FloodLight Efficiency
A more efficient light, at 170 lm/watt will cost more than a less efficient light. But over the life of the product, it will save you a lot more money in reduced operating costs. Choose a higher efficiency LED to save more on your electricity bill.
11. Paybacks can be relatively short with LED FloodLights
Save Money with LED
LED payback = Hours of Use + Reduced Use of Electricity + Rebates
Rebates may be the least important of the three. High hours of use and high cost of electricity will dwarf the benefits of a rebate.
Everyone likes a rebate. We have created many proposals where payback was under 1 year even without rebates. Contact us and we can help walk you through the math.
12. Speciality Flood Lights
High Temperature: We have 80C and 90C high ambient temperature options and can replace 250W, 400W and 1000W HID. These rugged lights operate in higher temperature environments.
Hazardous Location: Have volatile explosive or dusty environments? We have C1D1 and C1D2 UL844 rated explosion proof flood lights.
How Are Flood Lights Different From Spotlights?
Some people tend to confuse flood lights with spotlights, but the two are very different. So, what's the main difference between a flood light and a spotlight?
The beam spread of a flood light can be as wide as 120°. This means that it can light up a larger surface area. A spotlight has a narrow beam of light that is no wider than 45°. The beam is more focused and is much easier to control and direct. The flood light has one big advantage over a spotlight. It can illuminate a larger space with the same lumen output and wattage as a spotlight.
Spotlights are perfect for illuminating a specific location, like building facades. Using photometric layouts, aiming lights to provide complete and uniform light distribution. In mining operations, using Flood Lights to illuminate dark passages keeps workers safe.
Shortcomings of Traditional Flood Lighting
Outdoor and industrial applications that need high intensity illumination had used HID lamps. These include metal halide lamps, sodium vapor lamps and mercury vapor lamps. HID lamps have high lumen output. They use a lot of electricity (1000 watts or more) to generate a significant amount of light.
The innate disadvantages of HID lamps limit their usage in outdoor applications. High pressure sodium lamps have a bigger light spectrum but very low efficiency. Their color rendering index is also very low, approximately 22. LED's CRI are 70+ CRI. Sunlight is 100.
Metal halide lamps also have some disadvantages. As with all HID lamps, they have a long warm up and cool down time. They can take up to 30 minutes to achieve full brightness. In case of a power outage, switching them on takes time. Metal halide generate light by passing a ceramic arc or quartz arc tube via a gas mixture of vaporized metal halide and mercury. Cold metal halide lamps cannot produce full light output immediately. They need 10 - 30 minutes for their electric arcs to discharge visible light to full brightness.
But their long initial startup is not of greater concern than their long re-strike time. If power interrupts it may take 20 - 30 minutes for the arcs to re-strike – depending on the type of metal halide lamp used. The pressure inside the arc tubes rises, preventing the arcs from re-striking.
Metal halide bulbs have a short useful life of approximately 12000 to 20000 hours. High intensity discharge lamps suffer from poor lumen maintenance and decline quickly. HID lamps also contain a small amounts of mercury and are susceptible to explosion. All lamps with mercury must follow disposal regulations set by the EPA.
