When outfitting your commercial landscaping with outdoor lighting you have a number of options including light posts, tree ring lights and in-ground lighting. Depending if you are outfitting a multifamily, industrial or commercial property, the best lighting options for you will vary.

What Type Of Lighting Is Best For Your Business?

Some businesses require more lighting fixtures than others. It all depends on the size and scope of your property as well as overall traffic, especially after dark. Give us a call and we will be happy to help assess your business and guide you in the right direction as to what type of lighting you require.

Commercial Lighting: Shopping centers, hotels, restaurants, churches, banks, auto dealerships and office parking lights are all grouped together under ‘commercial lighting installation.’ The goal of lighting a commercial location is to make employees and patrons feel more comfortable and secure, while also making the property appear more appealing.

Industrial Lighting: Industrial lighting is added in order to extend business hours and create a safer environment for employees as well as your actual facility.

Multifamily Lighting: This type of lighting is installed in apartment complexes, condos or other neighborhoods where multiple families reside. Lighting fixtures should create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Lighting needs to promote safety without overwhelming residents or making it difficult to fall asleep because lighting is too bright or invasive in its placement.

LED Lighting

LED lighting is the number one option for all properties because it offers the highest level of energy efficiency. Not only does LED lighting provide brighter results while using less energy, but also LED bulbs last a lot longer than traditional bulbs. This decreases the frequency of which you have to switch out light bulbs, saving you time and money.

Different Types Of Outdoors Lighting

There are countless options when it comes to selecting outdoor lighting. Mixing and matching a variety of lighting options is a great way to spruce up style and draw the eye around the property.

Commercial Lamp Posts

Our lampposts offer long lasting, bright light with great style. Our most popular light post styles include the New England and the Washington Post.

The New England light post includes a longer, narrower throat section. The style is based off of the lighting popularly found in New England around the early 1900’s.

The Washington Post is available between 7 and 16-feet tall, reaching between 7.5-feet and 20-feet when topped with one of our luminaire selections.

Our PolySteel lampposts come standard in black but we can make them in any color you specify, including a faux-stone look.

Replacement Bases For Light Posts

We sell all components of light posts including bases, luminaires and post covers. Our easily attachable replacement basses come in resin or aluminum. They can be secured to any standard light post measuring 3 or 5-inches in diameter.

Our bases serve as an affordable way to spruce up aging or damaged light poles. They also serve as a protective casing since they are resistant to rust, corrosion, and impact damage. This adds extra years onto your lampposts without investing in entirely new fixtures.
