What Are Flood Lights?
Flood lights are popular fixtures used to illuminate large, outdoor areas. These fixtures can emit a tremendous amount of light, making them a popular choice for areas such as sports courts, driveways, warehouses, streets, stadiums; they are also often used to accentuate property features such as entrances or sculptures. Outdoor floods are available with standard LED and wildlife-friendly LED lamp types. Floods come in various sizes and styles and can be custom finished in your choice of RAL color. Floods have a wider standard beam spread than other fixtures (up to 120 degrees), which illuminates spaces very well. Access Fixtures flood lights are made for regular outdoor use. They are commercial-grade units built to perform and protect against weather conditions such as wind, rain, snow, and vast changes in temperatures. For more information, see our pages on LED Floods and Parking Lot Lighting.
Outdoor Floods – Reflectors, Vandal Resistant
Access Fixtures provides an array of flood lighting, including small and large adjustable area lighting with forward throw, cutoff, and wide-angle reflectors. Premium flood lighting includes, but is not limited to, sixteen-inch and twenty-four-inch fixtures. Outdoor flood lighting is used in a variety of landscape lighting projects. While floods are commonly used to accentuate certain property features, they are often required to meet minimum insurance requirements. In addition, a well-lit building is less likely to fall victim to robbery or vandalism due to the visibility provided by the fixtures. Many outdoor flood light options offered by Access Fixtures are vandal resistant. Our specialists can help you determine which units are appropriate for your lighting needs.
Flood Light Mounting Options
Slip fitter mount – This is the most common mounting method and it allows floods to be easily affixed to poles with 2 3/8″ tenons. To make it easier to adjust your flood lights, these fixtures come with mounting hardware and angle indicators. When mounted with slip fitters, these fixtures can be adjusted by tilting the units up and down, or rotating left to right, on the horizontal and vertical axes.
Trunnion mount – This allows floods to be directly mounted to a flat surface. Additionally, it can also be tilted up and down. However, unlike a slip fitter, trunnion mounts can only be adjusted on the vertical axis and cannot be rotated left to right.
6″ arm mounts – This particular mount is suitable for use on square poles. This arm mount makes it possible for a fixture to be mounted anywhere on a square pole; simply align the arm mount to holes drilled into the pole and bolt the fixture to the other end.
Access Fixtures can help you find the appropriate mounting and brackets for your flood light. Do you need multiple fixtures on a single pole? We have two-light, three-light, and four-light bullhorn brackets; mounts for wood poles; wrap-around brackets; angle brackets; and more. If you need it mounted, we can mount it.
