Floodlights have become a common feature around homes and commercial spaces. These broad-beamed high-intensity lights are fairly inexpensive, easy to install and come with a variety of benefits. They serve as a security measure by ensuring the exterior of your home or business is well-lit, leaving no dark spots for intruders to hide in. They provide sufficient illumination for you to safely use your braai area and swimming pool when the sun goes down. They also offer the simple functionality of providing you with enough illumination to find your keys and make your way up to your front door without stumbling in the dark.
Radiant Lighting has a range of LED floodlights to power the exterior of your property. These are just some of the reasons you may want to invest in one:
They have an impressive lifespan.
LED floodlights last almost 10 times longer than incandescent lighting and are known for their longevity. They also give you fair warning that they’re reaching the end of their lifespan by dimming gradually as opposed to abruptly dying. This gives you sufficient time to buy a replacement bulb if you don’t already have one on hand.
LED floodlights will save you money in the long run because they use little electricity. This ultimately leads to a lower electricity bill and also plays a part in reducing your carbon footprint.
They don’t emanate heat.
In comparison to standard bulbs, LEDs don’t waste heat which allows them to conserve a large amount of electricity. This also means they do not contribute to a rise in temperatures where they are placed, making them ideal for cold storage facilities. The absence of heat makes them a safe option because the risk of an electrical fire is reduced.
LED floodlights are made of tough materials and can withstand exposure to the elements and drastic changes in temperature.
They produce light similar to daylight.
The bright white light produced by LED floodlights is similar to that of daylight which is why they’re a go-to choice for stadium lighting. This type of lighting also makes it easier to see features in your garden and detect movement by intruders.
They’re environmentally friendly.
No mercury or lead is used in the production of LED floodlights and they do not give out carbon emissions which are harmful to both the environment and your health.
They’re available with a motion sensor.
Some LED floodlights come equipped with a motion sensor which can detect movement from up to 10m away. Motion sensor floodlights are a convenient option for those wanting the benefits of a floodlight but only when movement is detected. A floodlight that automatically switches on and then off again cuts down on electricity consumption. It’s also great for security as the sudden flood of light will startle any criminals attempting to enter your property.
