Keeping car parks safe has always been the major thrust when lighting up these areas late at night.
It is paramount that both motorists and pedestrians can see each other clearly, along with other vehicles, road signs, exits, entrances and stairwells or lifts.
Sufficient lighting systems in public car parks are also vital in terms of safety as they will help to identify people on CCTV and therefore act as a major deterrent. This is not only in terms of personal crimes and anti-social behaviour but also damage and theft.
Unfortunately, the cost of operating traditional lamps made it almost impossible to keep lights burning to ensure the safety of drivers returning to their vehicles, especially during the hours of darkness.
Big Green Switch understands the need to provide efficient lighting at a reasonable cost.
We are happy to offer energy efficient LED car park lighting to keep everybody safe and protected.
Older car park lamps and lighting systems were designed to radiate outwards, which actually resulted in lower lumens where they were really needed. Since they burned so hot, the heat needed rapidly dispersing.
With LED lighting, there are no high temperature areas so they can safely be directed towards where the maximum amount of light is needed. What’s more, they can operate in low and cold temperatures, so they are perfect for multi storey car parks.
We can even provide and install wireless solutions for car parks. This would allow operators to monitor, automate and control lighting from a single interface. Our systems can dim lighting as necessary, turning it on and off to save energy.
With some car parks open 24 hours a day and having a large number of fittings, this means that reliability and efficacy are extremely important in maximising the cost savings of an LED lighting installation.
As compared to conventional lighting, LED lights are extremely long-lived. The can last as long as 100,000 hours and as they are of solid state construction, are durable and require little to no maintenance along the way.
Energy efficient? LED lighting is often 75% to 80% cheaper to run than HID and incandescent lights. This is the reason why we at Big Green Switch are excited to have a line of energy efficient LED lights and bulbs especially for use in car parks.
Big Green Switch is here to help you keep your car park safe with extremely bright LED lighting at a considerably lower cost than you ever dreamed possible.
While floodlights are very commonly used to light large indoor spaces such as warehouses, they are also used outdoors. When choosing an LED floodlight for outdoor use, it’s vital to consider water resistance, especially with UK weather.
Luckily, all modern LED floodlights are built to IP65 standard which means they are protected from water sprays, making them suitable for outdoor car parks.
Another pointer is to choose lighter colour temperatures as these are incredibly effective for illuminating large and dark spaces.
Our designers can prepare a bespoke plan for your lighting for outdoor or indoor car parks.
