How tall should a parking lot light be?
The height of a parking lot light can be determined by the application it will have, what activity or what for are you going to install it, if you will only need it for accessibility, protection and safety during night you may use poles from 14ft to 50ft. If the parking lot light is installed higher it will illuminate a wider area. If street lights are installed higher than 50ft they are called high-masts. But if you are planning to have sport activities, rehearsals, meetings, dances, fairs etc., you might need more light, to be able to see more detail, for those types of outdoor activities so in those cases you can use poles or installations from 14ft to 25ft depending on the wattage and quantity required you can get very good illumination at night. You can even use lower installations from 9ft to 13ft. For all those applications you can use ARES Series Parking Lot Lights by Hyperlite.
