LED Bollards Provide Ample Lighting for a Homeowner Association Walkway and Building Entrance

The manager of a homeowner association (HOA) recently contacted Access Fixtures seeking lighting for a sloped walkway that led to a building entrance in a gated community. There was a standard high pressure sodium wall pack affixed to a nearby building wall, but the light it offered wasn’t enough to make the walkway safe. How Much Light Does a Walkway Require? The first step we had to take was to determine how much light this customer actually needed. The walkway was five feet wide and thirty feet long with a fifteen-foot landing outside the front door. Some light reached the walkway from the wall pack and from the windows of the building, but for the most part, it was very dark. The customer considered adding a wall pack near the entrance to the building but was hoping to find a more effective solution. He wanted to find sufficient and reasonable lighting for the walkway and ramp. An Access Fixtures lighting specialist considered the use of the walkway and the level of existing ambient light to make an informed decision. Together with the HOA manager, they determined that all parts of the walkway should have approximately one foot-candle of light. The lighting specialist then suggested installing a series of energy-efficient LED bollard lights along the walkway at regular intervals to achieve the desired result. Finding the Right Bollard Light Bollards are available in a variety of styles and lamp types, making them a flexible lighting option for commercial and residential lighting. The HOA manager liked the style of the louvered bollards. However, photometric analyses of the different kinds of bollards...

Emergency Helipad Gets an Upgrade with LED Bollards for Pathway Lighting

The town of Roseboro, NC, recently approved the addition of an emergency helipad to be installed next to the town’s fire station. The addition of the helipad will greatly increase the town’s ability to quickly get patients the help they need. Lighting the helipad presented an interesting set of problems, but Access Fixtures was able to provide the exact lighting solution they needed. Bright Lighting for Safety in Emergency Situations In an emergency, every second counts. Also, no one under the spinning blades of a helicopter should have to feel around the shadows or fight the glare from an overpowered flood light. Roseboro needed to make sure the pathway was properly lit; there had to be enough light for people to safely travel to and from the helipad, but not so much that helicopter pilots would be blinded or distracted when trying to land. In other words, they needed fixtures that would be low to the ground and effectively distribute light.   Time and initial cost were also critical factors. Construction of the helipad was already well under way and the town wanted to find a cost-effective solution—fast. An Access Fixtures lighting specialist helped narrow down their selection—they were soon weighing the pros and cons of metal halides and LEDs. Roseboro decided to go with the LEDs, noting their cost- and energy efficiency, tremendous lifetime, and easy customization. Energy-Efficient LED Bollards Won’t Break the Bank LED technology continues to advance, and LED fixtures are now more affordable than ever before. They also offer significant long-term savings; they have a luminous efficacy that traditional fixtures simply cannot match. LEDs are...

LED Bollards for Assisted Living Facility’s Path and Patio Lighting

Access Fixtures was recently approached by a client seeking to light the pathway and patio outside of an assisted living facility. The customer wanted to make sure the lighting would be energy-efficient and was interested in our selection of LED bollards. However, the fact that they were lighting an assisted living facility raised a concern: Would the bollards be too tall and cause eye-level glare for the residents in wheelchairs? LED Bollards for Path and Patio Lighting Outside Assisted Living Facility in CA   The assisted living facility, located in California, was looking for affordable pathway lighting and patio lighting for the property. They were interested in LED bollards as the most energy-efficient option. A 15w LED bollard uses 87% less energy than an equivalent 100w PSMH bollard light, which makes for a significant savings on the utility bill. LEDs also have a rated operating life of 100,000 hours, virtually eliminating maintenance costs. Though they use significantly fewer watts than traditional fixtures, LED bollards make no sacrifices in lumen output. PSMH fixtures have rapid lumen depreciation, meaning they produce less illumination in exchange for much more wattage. In fact, a common criticism of LED lighting in general is that they can be a little too bright. Concern for Bollard Lights and Eye-Level Glare for Wheelchair Users The brightness of the LED bollards was certainly a concern. The facility proprietors wanted to provide a safe level of lighting for the pathway and patio without blinding any of their disabled residents. They were worried the light from the bollards would shine horizontally outward, directly into the eyes of anyone low enough...

What Lighting is Best for a Flicker-Free Photography Environment?

After the 1972 Olympic games, photographers found that many of their pictures were pitch black. The issue wasn’t with their cameras, but with the lights. How could this be when the stadium was brightly lit by high intensity discharge (HID) lamps? Although the light may appear to be constant to the human eye, it’s actually not. HID lamps are an AC-powered source, which always causes flicker due to on/off cycles. While this flicker may not observable to the human eye, cameras are able to capture that fraction of a second when the lights are effectively off, resulting in pitch black photos. More than forty years later, flicker is still an issue for sports photographers. Recently, an indoor sports photographer contacted Access Fixtures wanting to know more about the flicker characteristics of LED vs. pulse-start metal halide (PSMH). As a professional photographer with a specialty involving fast-action sports, he has run into 60-cycle light flicker a number of times. The shutter speed on his camera is usually 1/640 of a second or faster, which leads to photos of varying exposures like the ones below. As one part of his job as a professional photographer, he often finds himself talking to club managers, advocating for brighter lighting and reduction in flicker. An Access Fixtures lighting specialists consulted with engineers who design our sports lighters as well as retrofit kits that can convert sports court lighting from HID to LED.  For those looking for a virtually flicker-free photography environment, the engineer recommended using non-dimming LED products. Flicker factor varies widely with LED products, but the primary cause is the addition of dimming capability....
