2. The proper optics to properly light the billboard
Our LED Billboard fixtures are available with over 30 optic packages. More importantly, we have a special optic designed to light up billboards, from top left corner to bottom right corner. This ensures your billboards are lit up properly after you convert over to LED.
Our Asymmetrical Optic packages are specially designed for both billboard types
wide and short
tall and narrow
So whether your billboard is 140'W X 18'H or 18'W X 140'H, our LED optics can light up your billboard with evenly distributed light.
3. Retrofit your existing fixtures over to LED
Retrofit 400W HID
Retrofit 1000W HID
Are your existing fixtures in good shape? Retrofitting your billboard lights may be an option. Using one of our retrofit kits, you can simply replace the HID bulb and ballast with one of our LED Retrofit Kits. These work specifically well with fixtures that have special billboard lens/optics.
11 models available that produces from 5000 to over 50000 lumens
4. High Voltage Billboard Fixtures - from 100V to 480V
We offer both standard voltage options of 100V-277V (standard) and high voltage options of 347V-480V (optional).
Our billboard lights are available with up to 20kVA surge suppression. This keeps your billboard investment safe in all weather conditions.
5. 4000K and 5000K Color Temperatures
We offer Billboard 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
Our billboard lights are available with photocells that turn on at dusk and off at dawn. And because our LED Lights are instant on / instant off, gone are the days of long strike and re-strike times. So if there is a blip in your power supply, your billboard will be instantly lit up when the power comes back on.
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 Billboard fixtures and Retrofit Kits will provide bright, maintenance free lighting for years.
8. High CRI - 70+
One of the specifications you need to pay attention to is CRI (color rendering index). This is a measurement of the quality of light that the fixture is producing. It is a scale between 0 and 100. Sunlight is 100. A general rule is that you need less quantity of light if you have better quality. LED has high CRI making the quality better than most traditional light sources.
We offer 70+ CRI options, so we can meet any spec you 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 billboard 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. And considering the remote locations of many billboards, this is a huge cost 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.
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 billboard fixtures and retrofit kits rated between 130 and 165 lumens/watt. We can help you choose the right efficiency.
11. Paybacks can be relatively short with LED Billboard Lights
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.
Photometrics - Get it Right before you buy
Why are photometrics important? They allow you to see your area and how it would look under LED Lighting taking the risk out of buying. We can easily run different options with our lights, and provide you with the proper information and guidance. We're here to save you money with LED. But it's as important to get the lighting right.
