How many kinds of outdoor lights do you know?

(Last Updated On: September 21, 2018)

Outdoor lights, as the name, are lamps that are used outdoors, so what kinds of outdoor lights are there? Let’s take a look at it one by one.

LED Street Light

Road lighting is an important part of urban lighting. Traditional street lamps often use high-pressure sodium lamps,360 degree light, the shortcomings of light loss caused a huge waste of energy.

LED street light is different from traditional street light. LED light source is a low-voltage DC power supply, high-efficiency white light synthesized by GaN-based power blue LED and yellow. It is efficient, safe, energy-saving, environmentally friendly, long life, fast response, high color rendering index, etc. Unique advantages can be widely applied to roads.


Solar street light

The solar street light is powered by a crystalline silicon solar cell. The maintenance-free valve-regulated sealed battery (colloidal battery) stores electrical energy. The ultra-bright LED lamp is used as a light source and is controlled by an intelligent charge and discharge controller to replace the traditional street light. No need to lay cables, no AC power supply, no electricity costs; Supply and Control control by DC power; good stability, long life, high luminous efficiency, easy installation and maintenance, high safety performance, energy saving, economical and practical.

Widely used in urban main, secondary roads, residential areas, factories, tourist attractions, parking lots and other places.


Garden light

Usually refers to outdoor road lighting below 6 meters, the main components are the light source, lamps, light poles, flanges, basic embedded parts 5 parts, because the garden lights are versatile, beautiful, landscaping and decoration. The characteristics of the environment, so also known as landscape garden lights.

It is mainly used for outdoor lighting in urban slow lanes, narrow lanes, residential quarters, tourist attractions, public places such as parks and plazas, which can extend the time of people’s outdoor activities and improve the safety of property.


Buried light

The lamp body is made of pressing material or stainless steel, which is durable, anti-seepage and excellent in heat dissipation. The cover is made of 304# precision cast stainless steel material, anti-corrosion, and anti-aging; silicone sealing ring, excellent waterproof performance, high-temperature resistance, and anti-aging High-strength tempered glass, strong transparency, wide radiation surface, and strong load-bearing capacity; all solid screws are made of stainless steel; protection grade is IP67; optional plastic embedded parts are available for easy installation and maintenance.


Widely used in shopping malls, parking lots, green belts, park tourist attractions, residential quarters, urban sculptures, pedestrian streets, building stairs, etc., mainly buried in the ground, used for decoration or indicating lighting, and used Wall washing or tree-based applications have considerable flexibility.


Wall washer

Also known as linear LED flood light, because its shape is long, some people call it LED line light, its technical parameters are similar to the LED flood light, relative to the circular structure of LED flood light, heat dissipation device of the strip structure of the wall washer is more convenient to handle.

Like the name, the light is like water washed on the wall, mainly used for architectural decoration lighting, as well as to outline the large buildings. LEDs are widely used because of their energy saving, high luminous efficiency, rich colors, and long life.


Tunnel light

The tunnel light is a special luminaire used for tunnel lighting to solve the visual “black hole effect” or “white hole effect” caused by sudden changes in brightness when the vehicle enters or exits the tunnel. The shell is made of alloy environmentally friendly material with high strength and good toughness. The transparent parts are reinforced tempered glass, dustproof and waterproof, resistant to corrosion and rust.

It has anti-strong collision and impacts ability; multi-channel anti-vibration structure and high-tech surface spraying treatment, all kinds of close-range high-intensity high-frequency vibration cannot affect the lamps and can vibrate and wet in the workshop, roadbed, rails, etc. Long-term stable work in the high-temperature environment. Good electromagnetic compatibility will not cause interference to the transmission network.


Landscape light

Landscape lights, also known as decorative lights, are both ornamental and illuminating.

Landscape lights use different shapes, different colors and brightness to create landscapes. For example, the red-light lantern-shaped landscape lights bring a festive atmosphere to the square, and the green coconut tree lights set a tropical style at the poolside. Landscape lights are suitable for landscapes such as squares, residential areas, and public green spaces. In use, be careful not to overdo it, so as not to overwhelm the audience, making the landscape look messy and flashy. Landscape lights also have certain disadvantages, such as: not environmental protection.


Bollard light

Also called bollard light, the design of the lawn lamp is mainly for exterior and soft lighting to add safety and beauty to the urban green landscape. It is generally easy to install and decorative and can be used for the decoration of green belts in parks, garden villas, square greening, etc.


Underwater lights

The underwater light is a light that is placed under the water.

The appearance is small and exquisite, beautiful and elegant. The appearance is similar to that of some buried lights. It only has an additional mounting chassis. The chassis is fixed with screws. The underwater light is generally an LED light source. When it is powered on, it can emit a variety of colors, colorful, usually in a park or fountain pool. Mainly used for fountains and underwater projects


Fountain light

It’s up to the fountains type, such as dry fountains, pool fountains, indoors or squares (outdoors), etc., also have different installation methods for fountains.

Generally, the wiring pipe is under waterproof, and the position of the bottom lamp is reserved. It can be used by high-grade rubber-plastic cable. For safety reasons, the low-voltage power supply should be used. Remember to use a leakage short-circuit type protector.


Guardrail tube

The LED guardrail tube is made up of seven colors of red, green and blue color mixing. The pulse width modulation of the output waveform is used to adjust the duty ratio of the LED light. When the scanning speed is fast, achieves a gradual effect.

A lamp through the internal control chip can change seven different colors in stages, and produce various effects such as gradual change, flicker, scanning, chasing, running water, etc. The length of the lamp should be determined according to the actual effect, and the regular length is one meter. It is resistant to UV radiation and has a waterproof effect. Widely used in various building curtain walls, building wheel frames, amusement landscape lighting, KTV, various bridge body lighting and other places.


Stage lights

The composition of the LED stage light is similar to that of the LED lighting. The main accessories are housing, LED lamp bead, secondary optical lens, LED drive power, DIP dial switch, heat sink, housing, mounting bracket and so on.


Traffic light


Traffic lights are divided into motor vehicle signal lights, non-motor vehicle signal lights, pedestrian crossing signal lights, direction indicator lights (arrow signal lights), lane signal lights, flashing warning lights, road and railway plane crossing signal lights.

According to the optical principle, the red light has a long wavelength, strong ability to penetrate the air, and is more noticeable than other signals. Therefore, as a signal is forbidden to pass, green is used as the notification signal because the difference between red and green is the largest and easy to distinguish (red and green blind is a minority after all).

In addition, the color can also express some specific meanings. To express heat or violent, the strongest is red, followed by yellow. Green has a colder and calmer meaning. Therefore, people often represent danger in red, yellow as a warning and green as safety.


Light strip/bar

The lamp strip refers to the LED lamp that is soldered to the copper wire or the strip flexible circuit board by a special processing technology, and then connected to the power source for illumination, and is named after a light band when it emits light.
