There are different types of exterior lights, one type that is very common in parking lots, parking spaces, driveways, pathways, and even seen in outdoor sports fields are called parking lot lights. The most common parking lot lights are the shoebox parking lot lights. Old parking lot lights had rectangular shapes, right-angled structure boxes that would make us think back about shoe boxes, that is why most people nick-named those type of parking lot lights “shoebox parking lot lights.” Old traditional shoebox parking lot lights consisted of high-intensity discharge lamps such as metal halide, high-pressure sodium or mercury vapor lamps. Most shoebox parking lot lights are mounted to poles and multiple shoebox parking lot lights can be seen mounted to single poles, additionally, there are different mounting methods.
With LED (light-emitting diode) invention 1962 and later technology improvements LED shoebox parking lot lights are currently available. LED lights are up to 80% more energy- efficient than traditional old fluorescent or incandescent lights, 95% of the energy is converted into light inside LEDs, and only 5% is converted into heat, compared to fluorescent lights which only can convert 5% of the energy they receive into the light. LED fixtures also draw much less power than old traditional lighting. LEDs only need to use about 10% of the energy an incandescent lamp normally requires. LED lights have a better lifespan than traditional lighting, LEDs can last up to 6 times longer than other traditional lights thus reducing ongoing replacements and overall manufacture and transportation costs. Additionally LED lights are a very directional type of lighting that makes them, even more, energy efficient compared to other types of lighting.
