We will advise you on the best features for your special lighting needs, such as pole height and gauge (thickness). Parking lot lighting falls into two basic choices, either shoebox style or flood light style. The shoebox style is connected directly to the light pole with a 6" arm. It is stationary at 90 degrees to the light pole with no adjustability. The reflector is a nema 4 forward reflector that reflects the light down and forward. This helps reduce glare when necessary. The flood light parking lot style has more flexibility, and is adjustable both up and down as well as left and right, at 90 to 180 degrees to the pole. This feature allows the light to shine a further distance, making it an ideal choice when poles are farther apart.
It is important to know the type of wind region for your parking lot lighting, as well as the type and number of parking lot lights needed. A larger parking lot light requires a larger gauge pole. Each light pole comes with a recommended maximum weight it can support in a certain wind region. Overloading could cause light pole failure.
