What is High Mast Lighting?
High mast lights are actually tall lighting poles which have light fixtures attached to them at the top pointing downwards towards the ground. Normally, the lighting poles would be 30 meters tall and the lighting fixtures would be mounted at a height of 60 feet to 120 feet. A lighting pole could have about 4 to 8 lighting fixtures attached to it.
Why LED High Mast Lights
- Energy Savings
One of the main reasons why everyone should choose LED high mast lights or convert them to LED is due to the fact that they offer energy savings of up to 80 percent. The advancement in LED technology and the higher lumens per watts configuration has allowed for the reduction in energy consumption of up to 70 percent.
- Various Controls
They also provide various controls such as motion sensors and day light sensors which help achieve just about everything. When buying any LED fixtures, it is important to focus on lumens instead of watts.
- Paybacks in a Short Period of Time
If you consider LED high mast lighting such as the ones offered by Onor Lighting then you will be happy to learn that they provide paybacks relatively in short period of time. You need to keep in mind the 1+1+1 rule which is Rebates + Cost of Electricity + Hours of Use. The benefits of high cost of electricity and high hours of use are more important as compared to rebates.
- Improved Light Quality
Color rendering index or CRI is a specification which you need to focus on. It is the quality of light which the fixture produces. The scale is from 0 to 100 and as a rule of thumb, the better the quality, the less your need for an increase in quantity of light. LED provides high CRI which means that the quality is much better as compared to traditional lighting. However, CRI isn’t the only factor which needs to be considered. Fluorescent for example has a high CRI which might be misleading.
LED drivers allow for the conversion of AC to DC which means that there is no flicker; hence, there would be no headaches or eye strains felt. It leads to better environment. Overall, LED is the way to go if you are looking for the best results.
