Whether the lighting effect of a building’s exterior wall can be achieved as depicted in the renderings largely depends on the selection of the right lighting fixtures. How well do you understand the lighting options for building exteriors, and what are the commonly used fixtures? Let’s explore this together and learn how to make the best choices!
1. Inground lights
Inground lights include square or round in shape, widely used in shopping malls, parking lots, green belts, park tourist attractions, residential quarters, urban sculptures, pedestrian streets, building steps, and other places, mainly buried in the ground for decoration or is used for indicating lighting, and some are used to wash walls or illuminate trees, offering versatile applications.
2. LED floodlights
Lamps designed to provide higher illuminance on a specific surface compared to the surrounding environment, and they are also called outdoor LED spotlights. Typically, these fixtures are adjustable in direction and built to withstand various weather conditions. They are widely used in large operational areas, mining sites, outlining buildings, illuminating stadiums, lighting overpasses, highlighting monuments, and enhancing the beauty of parks and flower beds. Therefore, virtually all outdoor lighting fixtures for large areas can be categorized as floodlights. The outgoing beam angle of a floodlight can vary from wide to narrow, spanning between 0° and 180°. Among them, a style with a particularly narrow beam spotlight is called a searchlight.
3. Outdoor wall washer lights
As the name suggests, let the light wash the wall like water, it is mainly used for architectural decoration lighting, and it is also used to outline the outline of large buildings! Because LED has the characteristics of energy saving, high luminous efficiency, rich colors, and long life, the wall washer of other light sources are gradually replaced by an LED linear wall washer light.
4. LED point light source
LED point light source refers to the light source with LED as the illuminant, and LED is one of the artificial electric light sources. Because the illuminant of LED is close to the “point”, the lamp design is more convenient. However, if it is used as a large-area display, the current and power consumption is relatively large. LEDs are generally used for display devices such as indicator lights, digital tubes, display panels of electronic equipment, and photoelectric coupling devices.
5. Led strip lights
LED light strip refers to the assembly of LEDs on a strip-shaped FPC (flexible circuit board) or PCB hard board, which is named for its product shape like a strip. It is named for its product shape like a belt. Because of its long service life (generally, the normal life span is 80,000 to 100,000 hours) and environmental protection, it has gradually emerged in various decoration industries.
