Commercial Wall Packs – Styles, Sizes and Applications

Wall pack light fixtures or luminaires are exterior grade light fixtures that are ideal for illuminating walkways,streets, and driveways adjacent to buildings. Wall packs are typically mounted on the sides of buildings, but are sometimes able to be pole mounted too. Beyond being functional by emitting light, many wall packs also provide aesthetic value. For instance while two wall packs mounted on either side of an entrance will emit light, when using a stylized wall pack that is possibly custom finished, the wall pack will also make the building architecturally interesting. Wall packs distribute light in three basic patterns. Standard wall packs distribute light out and down. Semi and full cutoff wall packs distribute light only down. Up-Down wall packs distribute light up and down, using the light to see as well a light to see by. There is a lot to consider when purchasing wall packs.

Commercial Wall Packs – Construction

Access Fixtures high quality wall pack housings are constructed of cast aluminum and treated with a chromate conversion coating to deter corrosion. A powder coat finish is then applied to the wall pack to provide a durable paint covering.

Inside the housing of the wall pack is where the electrical components are found. Some wall packs have components that are manufactured outside of the United States. In addition, we offer wall packs that come with components that are made in the USA. This means that the entire wall pack is assembled in the United Stated using brand name components.

Outdoor Wall Packs – Sizing

Wall packs increase with size for two reasons, to achieve a design and to house higher lumen output systems. While design would seem obvious, the later may not. The same wall pack design may frequently be manufactured in different sizes to house higher wattage, higher lumen emitting light systems. Increased size fits larger lamps and ballasts. Also, more space inside the luminaire helsp to reduce heat and the effect of heat on the ballast. Increasing the overall size or adding a deeper box to the back of the luminaire can achieve an increase in size.

Outdoor Wall Packs – Lamp Types

Custom painted round wall pack

Our wall packs can be custom painted to match any aesthetic.

There are five types of lighting technology to choose from when purchasing wall packs: high pressure sodium, pulse start-metal halide, compact fluorescent, induction, and LED. Each option works well in some situations and may not work as well in others. There is no best option, so choose the option that best fits your needs.

Light Pollution

When choosing your wall packs, you should consider the three components of light pollution: light glare, light trespass, and sky glow. Light glare is the harsh, uncomfortable brightness that light fixtures sometimes produce. Light trespass is the amount of light that exceeds the boundaries of a given area, such as a flood light that lights up a neighbor’s property. Sky glow is the amount of light emitted upwards that illuminates the night sky.

Many regions require property owners to meet certain standards regarding light pollution, particularly if you are in a city of urban area where dark sky compliance is a concern. In these situations, wall packs should be full cutoff, ensuring that light is emitted either downward or slightly forward. This prevents light from shining upwards into the sky or into surrounding properties.

Vandal Resistant Wall Packs

LG LED Wall Pack

Vandal resistant wall packs use LG LED light modules to prevent breakage.

The vandal resistant LED wall packs use traditional designs that architects and designers are familiar with, but stead of using glass on the front of the fixture, the entire fixture is encased in heavy-duty aluminum. Removing the glass leaves nothing to break, but it means the light engines have to be included in a new way. Access Fixtures was able to take LG LED modules and install them over pre-driled holes for conduit. This innovative designs keep the lights on to prevent malicious activity and provides an architectural design anyone can enjoy.

Condo in Destin Florida Selects Access Fixtures Turtle-Friendly LED Wall Packs

Access Fixtures specialists were recently approached by the owner of a commercial condominium property in Destin, Florida. The customer was seeking an affordable LED  wall pack upgrade for their  that would save money on energy without posing a threat to the surrounding wildlife. As home to 90% of the nesting sea turtles in the United States, Florida takes conservation efforts seriously, and the customer wanted to abide by local regulations. Choosing Turtle-Friendly LED Wall Packs That Meet Code The state of Florida has been active in the conservation of sea turtle habitats for many years, having developed a model lighting ordinance in 1993 to guide local governments in creating standards of lighting for properties along coastal areas. Destin, in particular, adopted the Land Development Code in 2004, which describes specifications for outdoor lighting which prevents or eliminates light pollution. Lighting a Beachfront Florida Condominium With LED The condominium property was right on the beach, with rooms and a pool that were accessible from the dunes. They needed an unobtrusive lighting option that would provide a safe level of illumination for guests without posing a threat to the environment.

Turtle Friendly Lighting for the US Military

Recently, a US military base located on an island off the coast of Virginia approached Access Fixtures for a solution to replace their damaged high pressure sodium (HPS) wall packs. An incident on base and years of coastal weather wear had depreciated the light quality in their current fixtures. Several were outright damaged and the base was left in the dark. The base was looking for lighting options that would reduce overall cost and, given their seaside location, be more environmentally friendly. Originally the base was using 100w HPS wall packs to light their outdoor facilities. High pressure sodium was a popular choice for outdoor lighting in the 1970s when increasing energy costs placed more emphasis on efficiency. Lumen output ranges between 80 to 140 lumens per watt, although HPS lamps are able to produce 7 times the amount of light per watt than incandescent and twice as much as fluorescent lights. Their low kelvin temperature produces a yellow light which was considered valuable for outdoor lighting due to its less detrimental effect on the environment. However, HPS lamps still contain mercury as a part of their operation which makes them more dangerous to use and dispose of. Today, there are much better options for outdoor lighting that provide more benefits for consumers–and for wildlife. For the US military base in Virginia, Specialist Stephanie Derby was able to recommend the 45w amber high output LED traditional wall pack from Access Fixtures. These LED fixtures have a vastly longer life expectancy than the HPS option at 100,000 hours and their light output is specifically tuned to produce an orange color...

Hotel Installs Vandal Resistant LED Lighting from Access Fixtures

Access Fixtures received a call from a Comfort Suites property manager looking for energy efficient LED lighting for the grounds of the hotel. The first area to light was the walkways and front driveway of the hotel. Next, the property manager wanted to add some parking lot lighting as well as light-up two flag poles on the property. Lighting specialists were able to provide LED bollards, LED Vandal Resistant Landscape lighting, and LED flood lights to the hotel. The LED landscape lighting luminaires were suggested because they are vandal-resistant and will be able to withstand anyone walking along the grounds, children kicking the fixtures, or lawnmowers hitting them.<p> The property manager needed to add area lighting around the entrance of the hotel, so LED bollard lights with LG LED modules were used.

Lamp Lumens vs. Luminaire Lumens – What’s the Difference?

The 100w pulse start metal halide (PSMH) full cutoff wall pack and the 25w LED full cutoff wall pack emit equivalent sources of light, in other words they produce a similar amount of lumens. That may surprise some people. When looking at the initial light source lumens, the PSMH wall pack has a lamp that produces 7,900 lumens while the LED wall pack has LEDs that produce only 2,737 lumens. Measuring light source or lamp lumens, the PSMH lamp produces  times more lumens than the 25w LED array. Does this mean the 100w PSMH full cutoff wall pack emits more light than the 25w LED full cutoff wallpack? No. How is it possible that the 25w LED wall pack is considered an equivalent to the 100w PSMH? To put it simply, the lamp lumens do not matter in the end result. It’s the luminaire lumens that ultimately determine the amount of light that the wall packs produce. Lamp lumens only refers to the amount of light that the lamp or light source produces. Luminaire lumens references the total amount of light that is emitted by the luminaire. A PSMH lamp distributes light in all directions. When located inside a luminaire, much of the light is trapped inside the housing. Even with some light reflected and redirected out of the fixture with a reflector, over 50% of the light will never escape. LEDs, on the other hand, is a directional light source. LED chips are mounted on the inside of the fixture, facing out to distribute light in the desired direction. Consequently, few of the lumens are trapped inside the...

New LED Wall Packs Reach Groundbreaking Low Price

Access Fixtures’ newest LED wall packs include internal drivers, integrated LED arrays with Samsung LED chips, and even a photocell. What’s the big deal? These wall packs sell for only $99, a significantly reduced price compared to other LED wall packs where the photocell alone is around a $20 option. The 9w LED Round Entry Light and 10w LED Square Entry Light are quality-built wall packs rated LM70 at 50,000 hours, virtually eliminating maintenance costs associated with replacement and installation. These luminaires are ideal for entrances to buildings, balconies, doorways and other locations that do not require a lot of light. Samsung’s LED chips are built with advanced LED technology, generating more light per LED package. Following Haitz’s law, the cost per lumen falls by a factor of 10 while the amount of light generated per LED package increases by a factor of 20. To put it simply, LEDs continue to improve in quality as they decrease in price. The Samsung LED arrays are also used in Access Fixtures’ newest groundbreaking LED wall packs and LED bollard lights. Unlike before, many LED luminaires are priced the same or lower than their equivalent pulse-start metal halide luminaires. Advanced LED technology accelerates the adoption of LED lighting by making it a more viable option. Compared to traditional lighting technologies like PSMH, these LED wall packs reduce energy use, last at least 5x longer, reduce maintenance, and have a superior CRI of 86.

LED Wall Pack vs. Metal Halide Wall Pack – Performance and Energy Savings Comparison

Are you still unsure about updating to LED? LED technology continues to advance, expanding the reasons to use LED instead of traditional lighting technologies like metal halide or high pressure sodium. In a previous blog, Access Fixtures compared the performance and energy savings between an LED bollard light and a metal halide bollard light. Now, we’ll take a look at the difference between a 150w Metal Halide Wall Pack and a 32w LED Full Cut Off Wall Pack. First, let’s look at performance. At 4,000 hours, the metal halide wall pack emits 3,780 luminaire lumens while the LED wall pack emits 4,468 lumens. As far as lumen output is concerned, the light levels are similar. However, the metal halide wall packs emits 20.3 lumens per watt while the LED wall pack emits a significant increase of 139.6 lumens per watt. Furthermore, the LED wall pack is rated for 100,000 hours which is TEN TIMES longer than the metal halide wall pack. Let’s investigate energy costs. The 150w metal halide wall pack uses a total of 186 watts when including the energy used by the lamp and ballast. The 32w LED wall pack uses only 32 watts. Essentially, the metal halide wall pack uses 154 more watts in order to deliver the same lumens as the LED wall pack. Based on an estimated use of 10 hours a day, 7 days a week, the cost to run a metal halide wall pack would be $169.26 a year. The LED wall pack only costs $29.08 per year to operate. Since the lamps need to be replaced, the metal halide wall pack...
