Wall pack lights work as outdoor wall lighting or outdoor wall lights. They brighten the exterior of buildings and create visibility around walkways, pedestrian areas, outdoor furniture, outdoor benches, garages, and other exterior areas. They can also provide light to outdoor residential, commercial, and hospitality applications.
They offer different light distributions to provide the right amount of illumination. Common light distributions include:
While some LED wall packs can dim, not all can. Check the description of the product to make sure the fixture is capable of dimming. Options that dim can help save you energy in times of no or low activity. Currently, we carry only non-dimmable wall pack options from AFX Lighting.
To help save energy, you can also find wall packs that use photocells or motion sensors. Because wall packs often work dusk to dawn, they may include photocells to turn them on or off. A photocell senses ambient light levels so they can automatically turn the light on when it gets dark and shut if off when the sun comes out.
Motion sensors turn the light on when they sense physical movement. Where a photocell remains on all night long, motion sensors help save energy by only turning the light on when they detect motion.
First, consider the type of light distribution you need such as forward throw, full cutoff, semi cutoff, or up & down distributions. Next, consider the following:
Color temperature - the color temperature determines the color of the light emitted by the fixture. They often range between 3000K-5000K for commercial fixtures. 3000K provides a warm white that works well in homes and restaurants. 4000K provides a cool, natural white that works well for businesses. 5000K offers a vibrant, daylight white that works well in large areas and outdoors. However, check local codes as certain cities or areas may place requirements on the color temperature or style of light.
Lumens - Lumens measure the total amount of visible light produced by a light source. In short, it indicates brightness. You need more lumens to properly light a larger space, like an open, industrial area. You can use less lumens to properly light smaller spaces, like walkways.
Additional features - consider any features you may want the wall pack to have, like a photocell, motion sensor, or selectable CCT. A dusk-to-dawn photocell turns the light on at night and off once the sun rises. Motion sensors turn the light on when they detect motion. Selectable CCT fixtures allow you to select the color temperature from an offered selection.
Many manufacturers provide an ideal mounting height for their wall packs. Typically, how high they should mount depends on the number of lumens. The brighter the wall pack, the higher you can mount it.
When using them in wet locations, AFX Lighting wall packs must mount at least 48 inches above ground level.
