LED Wall Packs - Dusk to Dawn Lighting
An Introduction to Wall Pack Lights
What are Wall pack lights?
1. They're wall mounted lights used to illuminate entrances, pathways, walkways and building perimeters. These lights usually illuminate building perimeters and provide security lighting and walkway lighting. They're mounted on any vertical surface and provide accent or area lighting.
2. Highly durable and built to endure harsh and humid weather conditions such as snow, hail, sun and rain. They are resistant to impact and may models are vandal proof.
3. Used for security purposes because they can pair with lighting controls that detect motion.
Before LED technology, wall pack fixtures used HID lamps (like metal halide). The most commonly used luminaires were 70W HPS lamps and 175W metal halide lamps. Much older wall pack lights used mercury vapor lamps..
Different Types of Outdoor Wall Packs
Full Cutoff Wall Packs
These lighting fixtures are fully covered except at the bottom. Their unique design ensures they only distribute light downward. Because the light is tightly controlled, the fixtures are usually dark sky compliant.
The full cutoff design ensures that light trespass is reduced or eliminated. The lamp can only be seen when one stands below the luminaire. Full cutoff wall pack lights only illuminate the walls and areas beneath them.
Semi-Cutoff Wall Packs
A semi-cutoff wall pack merges the design of a traditional flood wall pack and a full cutoff wall pack. The luminaire in the fixture is slightly covered by a top that comes down to the front. While the design of the fixture prevents some light pollution, it's not dark sky compliant.
A semi-cutoff wall pack distributes light downward but some of the light goes upward. Just like a traditional wall pack, this wall pack mounts on the wall to provide light to a specific area. The light fixture can also accommodate a myriad of light sources.
Adjustable Wall Pack Lights
These wall packs feature a full cutoff or a semi-cutoff design and a tilt mechanism. This allows for precise light aiming.
Adjustable wall packs offer placement of the light module. Light can focus upwards, downwards or between. These wall packs are ideal for outdoor areas and perimeter lighting. They use different light sources and some include photocells. They make perfect replacements for conventional wall packs and floodlights.
Traditional Wall Packs (Forward Throw Wall Packs)
These were the most common wall packs. They have the ability to discharge and flood light out from the wall. They are usually mounted on walls and used as flood area lights.
* They are not dark sky compliant without the use of a shield mounted at the top of the fixture.
Important Factors in Choosing Outdoor LED Wall Packs
As we wrote earlier, wall packs distribute light in different ways.
Traditional flood wall pack lights distribute light outwards and downwards.
Semi-cutoff wall packs distribute light mostly downwards.
Full cutoff wall packs distribute light downwards.
A lighting expert can create a layout and use the right fixtures and the correct light distribution to lower fixture count and illuminate the area better. You may have the best wall pack lights, but if you don't direct the light where it is needed, you will never know their potential. Light distribution is all about the projected pattern a light fixture disperses onto a surface.
A major indicator of luminaire performance is luminous efficacy. It's calculated as the lumens delivered for every single watt of electricity drawn. Luminous efficacy is the true measure of a fixtures efficiency. It accurately measures how well a light source generates visible light. Visible light (or luminous flux units) are usually measured in lumens.
The standard luminous efficacy is currently 130 to 180 lumens per watt. This means that a LED that pulls 20 watts should be able to generate approximately 2,600-3,200 lumens.
This defines the color appearance of a light source. It is usually measured using the Kelvin scale. Warm lights are around 2700K, neutral white lights are around 4000K, and cool white lights are around 5000K or more.
The color temperatures that are often used for most outdoor LED fixtures are 4000K and 5000K. While 5000K may seem very bright to some people, it is more consistent with metal halide lamps. When selecting color temperature, consider the purpose of the light fixture. Factors include where it's used, how far apart the light fixtures will be, and dark sky compliance.
In simple terms, this means inappropriate and excessive artificial light. It's comprised of four components that may overlap or mix.
- Light Trespass: Light falling where it is not needed or intended. Exceeding the borders of a specific area.
- Glare: Excessive bright light which causes visual discomfort. Too much glare can affect visibility
- Sky Glow: Artificial light generated upwards, lighting up the night sky
- Light Clutter: Excessive groupings of light sources that are bright and confusing. Often found in over-illuminated urban areas. Light clutter can contribute to sky glow, glare or light trespass
Many areas have certain requirements regarding light pollution. Especially urban areas where dark sky compliance is important. Consider full cut-off or semi-cut off fixtures for these applications.
Of all the lighting technologies in existence, LEDs have the lowest maintenance. Metal halides have a rated life of 12,000-20,000 hours. High pressure sodium lamps have an average lifespan of 20,000 hours. The average life expectancy of LEDs is 50,000 hours, which means you won’t have to replace them for many years. Some LEDs have a rated life of 100,000 hours.
LED lighting lowers maintenance costs in two ways:
- Money that could used to repair non-functional lights is saved
- Labor costs eliminated for the replacement of burnt out bulbs
Advancements in LED have led to the development of low wattage fixtures with higher efficacy and higher lumen output.
LED Lights can reduce your energy consumption by 60-90% over HID sources. LED's alone can reduce your lighting bill. Add controls like motion sensors that dim lights can save even more.
