What Are The Main Features Of Street Lights?

2022-04-14

Street lights or street lamps are helpful as they illuminate roadways, parking lots, sidewalks, and other public areas where people gather. Apart from improving driving safety, street lights also enhance the security of a site by improving vision in poor light conditions. Most of these street lights are often used with other traffic safety equipment that enhances visibility and removes all the obstacles in darkened areas. You need to understand that the primary function of street lights is to illuminate rooms or objects that would otherwise be in darkness or out of focus, especially at night.

If you are struggling to differentiate street lights from other light sources, take a look at some of the features used to identify them.


CONFIGURATIONS

You need to understand that street lights are commonly made of metals such as aluminum that are corrosion resistant. Alternatively, some of these street lights are made from a strong plastic material such as polyethene. The solar street light manufacturers have been factoring in the issue of withstanding outdoor elements when looking for materials to craft these lights. Most of them are pole- mounted on either existing utility poles or dedicated poles.

SPECIFICATIONS

The following are some of the specifications used to differentiate street lights from other sources of light.

Operating Temperature

This refers to the optimal temperature at which these lights operate. This specification is key to all outdoor lamps. The lamps are usually helpful at night. Therefore, on average, these lamps operate at a low temperature of up to 2 degrees Celsius. The manufacturers have significantly factored in the fact that the lights can be installed in areas that experience winter seasons each year.

Brightness

This is a measure of the magnitude of light produced by each lamp. There are street lamps that can deliver light to a circumference of up to 100m. Such light is critical in illuminating more oversized items that would otherwise be darkened at night. Most public spaces, such as open markets, depend on this brightness to continue transacting even at night.


OTHER  FEATURES

Photo - Sensor Activation

Most of these street lamps have an in-built photo sensor that ensures that the lamp is only on in low light conditions. In other words, the manufacturers of these lamps have been critical in ensuring that all the

lamps operate only at night or in places where the lighting is poor. The LED lights do not function effectively during the day.

Integrated  Solar  Panel

Most LED street lights are installed with a solar panel that helps in generating backup power hence reducing the operational costs incurred. In other words, instead of using electricity, most manufacturers install a solar panel in the lighting system to provide the required energy. Such lights have some added advantages, especially those that operate in areas that experience at least 10 hours of sunlight. The light source usually recharges its batteries and uses the energy to provide light at night. Such a system is paramount in ensuring that the street light illuminates an area throughout the year.


Street lights are an essential source of illumination in public areas that could otherwise be darkened at night.
