LED Applications

Light-Smart products can bring brilliant, energy-saving light to many applications, providing improved lighting performance in a sustainable solution.

Street & Roadway

Engineered for energy efficiency and environmental sustainability, Light-Smart provides a versatile, high-performance street lighting solution designed specifically for street and roadway applications. Streetlights represent an attractive application for LED lighting due to several factors:

  • The large number of streetlights in a community.
  • High maintenance costs due to height and location over public roadways.
  • Growing community pressure to implement "full cut-off" solutions to minimize glare and light pollution.
  • Desire for white light.

LED street lights offer many advantages over traditional streetlight technologies:

  • Unlike high density discharge lights, LEDs become more efficient as the ambient temperature decreases.
  • LEDs have no problems turning on in cold weather and are one of the most reliable lighting sources in any outdoor condition.
  • Long lifetimes and highly reliable service, greatly reducing maintenance costs.
  • Highly efficient light source, potentially reducing electricity consumption by up to 60%.
  • White light available in color temperatures from "warm" to "cool" with high CRI providing high-quality white light.

Parking Garages

Parking structure owners are switching from traditional light sources to Light-Smart LED lighting for high efficiency and improved light quality. Tremendous energy savings can be gained in this 24/7 lighting application. Parking garage lighting is an excellent application for LED lighting for several reasons.

  • Most parking garage lights burn 24 hours-a-day during peak electrical rates.
  • The vibration from vehicle traffic creates a harsh environment for traditional light sources.
  • Public safety concerns favor white light and a high color rendering index (CRI), and "burned out" bulbs can create safety hazards.

LED lighting addresses these realities and also provides other benefits including:

  • Long lifetimes and highly reliable service, greatly reducing maintenance costs.
  • Not affected by most vibrations and typical temperature variations.
  • Highly efficient light source potentially reducing electricity consumption by up to 60%.
  • White light available in color temperatures from "warm" to "cool" with high CRI providing high-quality white light.
  • Amenable to control systems such as motion sensors and photoelectric controls to further reduce electricity consumption.

Parking Lots

A complete site lighting solution is one that incorporates a combination of products. Light-Smart's product family works together to achieve optimal illumination, significant energy savings and virtually no luminaire maintenance in every lighting category. Parking lots can represent a challenging environment for lighting solutions. The lighting must economically accommodate vehicular and pedestrian traffic, must endure harsh environments and must address public safety considerations. As such, LED lighting is an excellent parking lot application for several reasons:

  • HID-based light fixtures waste approximately 20 to 50 percent of the light generated due to the lack of directionality of the light source. LED-based fixtures overcome this handicap by making use of a directional point light source.
  • Unlike HID lights, LEDs become more efficient as the ambient temperature decreases. LEDs have no problems turning on in cold weather and are one of the most reliable lighting sources in any outdoor condition.
  • Long lifetimes and highly reliable service, greatly reducing maintenance costs.
  • Highly efficient light source potentially reducing electricity consumption by up to 60%.
  • Not only is the pure white LED light more pleasing to the human eye, it also increases the amount of image information captured on security cameras. Therefore, LED lights can both decrease the total costs of lighting a parking area and potentially increase safety levels for everyone who uses it.

Gas Stations & Convenience Stores

Gas stations and convenience stores are attracting customers with improved LED lighting that creates a safe environment with dramatically better visibility and the added benefit of tremendous energy savings. A specific metal halide bulb, commonly used in gas station canopy lighting, dissipates 400 watts of total power. A custom LED product designed to substitute this metal halide, dissipates an amazing 60 watts of total power. Over an extended period, it is obvious how the 60 watt LED product will result in dramatic energy savings. Owners save energy; customers feel safe with Light-Smart LED lighting.

 

Airports

Light-Smart luminaires can lower energy consumption and costs, reduce maintenance expenses and provide a tremendous improvement in lighting performance at airports throughout the world. High-volume lighting customers are in great need of the energy saving, long life lighting, environmentally-friendly products that Light-Smart provides. Airport energy consumption and costs can be greatly reduced with Light-Smart lighting installations.

 

Corporate Campuses

For corporations planning newly constructed or renovated campuses or parking garages, Light-Smart LED is the lighting product of choice for up to 80% energy savings and contributions toward LEED credits from the U.S. Green Building Council. Light-Smart LED fixtures lead to substantial energy and maintenance cost savings and are environmentally friendly since they use less energy and do not contain any of the harmful gases found in some conventional lighting that require specialized disposal procedures.

 

Hospitals & Healthcare

With healthcare ranking as the second largest energy consumer in the U.S., the industry is turning toward energy-saving sources like Light-Smart's efficient luminaires to meet Department Of Energy initiatives. More and more hospital and patient care facilities have been complying with AIA Guidelines for Design and Construction of Hospital and Health Care Facilities that require the elimination of mercury from their fluorescent, CFL, HID and other lighting applications. Their recommendations to use LED lighting are not only socially responsible, but provide real benefit to the medical providers in the form of energy and maintenance cost savings.

 

Retail & Grocery

A customer's shopping experience begins and ends in the parking lot. Light-Smart LED lighting installations create a safe and inviting atmosphere by increasing visibility for pedestrians and motorists and provide a sustainable, energy saving solution for owners. Light-Smart's product family works together to achieve optimal illumination, significant energy savings and virtually no luminaire maintenance in every lighting category.

 

Schools & Universities

The U.S. Green Building Council sees school construction and renovation as a sector that has potential for tremendous energy savings by implementing environmental solutions. Schools and universities looking for sustainable lighting alternatives are selecting our premier LED lighting products for their campuses, roadways, parking garages and building security.

 

Restaurants & Hotels

Light-Smart LED luminaires are the ideal solution for multiple location franchise installations because they offer the versatility of optical selections and upgradeable modular LED light bars to meet different lighting ordinances. High-volume lighting customers are in great need of the energy saving, long life lighting, environmentally-friendly products that Light-Smart provides. We recommend that hotels, casinos, and many other commercial, entertainment and construction customers should contact us to learn how these solutions can impact their bottom line.
