What Should Be Considered When Installing outside flood lights?
The following considerations should be made while installing floodlights:
- Mounting height: how high the flood light should be mounted. For every 10m of distance you want to illuminate on the ground, you need lift the floodlight 5m vertically.
- Spacing: how far apart the floodlights should be placed. In general, the distance between floodlights should be four times their vertical height.
- Aiming: this is where the floodlight should be directed. As a general rule, the floodlight should be directed at a location covering two-thirds of the area to be illuminated.
