Outdoor lighting that out performs and out saves the competition

In designing outdoor lighting projects FOCUS prefers to use LEDs and Super Metal Halides, because they offer the best balance between the latest and most proven outdoor technologies. With the LED fixture pictured FOCUS was able to reduce energy consumption by 75% and extended maintenance intervals from every 2 years to an astounding 14 years!

Our approach requires a close examination of the current and proposed fixtures as well as the space to be lit. All of our large outdoor Parking Lot projects and outdoor special lighting projects are subjected to several types of approaches with different types of products and manufacturers. We then compare the solutions in order to insure our results meet or out perform existing levels before we install a thing. This is all done with the end goal in mind: the best possible lighting results for the customer.

Outdoor lighting consists of metal halide (MH) or high-pressure sodium (HPS) fixtures generally lighting the face of the building or creating general illumination for sidewalks, drives and parking lots. Soffit lights and lights mounted to the side of the building are often called building lights. These lights are most likely going to be MH or HPS lights and can generally be retrofitted to a better, more efficient form of MH or replaced with new LED fixtures. Selecting the proper fixture or retrofit depends on the budget for the project and the existing condition of the currently installed fixtures. LEDs generally are recommended for these applications because of the great performance in energy saving and maintenance that can be achieved. However, the overall efficiency of these fixtures can vary widely. Our extensive experience and knowledge of these products ensures that our customers acquire the right lamp and fixture type, which in turn will ensure the best possible performance.
Parking lot lights are a zone of outdoor lighting where Focus can help you to reduce your maintenance cost while at the same time dramatically increasing your energy savings. This can be done one of two ways;
  • By retrofitting the currently installed technology to an improvement in the same technology, this strategy can sometimes be the best solution as its cost is not as high as a total replacement.
  • Replacing the fixture can sometimes give the overall best results in energy savings, performance and maintenance.
Many times when the fixtures are replaced or retrofitted, companies will see a savings of up to 75 percent of the energy over what is currently installed. The newer technologies may also mean that the fixture or lamp will not need replacement for the next 8-15 years. The duration of lamp life expectancy creates the added benefit to the customer, knowing that they will not have to worry about the maintenance for an extended period of time.

Newer technologies often allow us to increase light levels and add lighting to areas that were previously under lit, while at the same time saving a lot of energy over what is currently installed there. This approach requires a close examination of the current and proposed fixtures as well as the space to be lit. All of our large outdoor parking lot projects and outdoor special lighting projects are subjected to several types of approaches with different types of products and manufactures. We then electronically engineer our proposed results while simultaneously examining the existing lighting. We then compare the two in order to ensure our results meet or outperform existing levels before we install a thing. This is all done with one end goal in mind: the best possible lighting results for our customers.
