Lighting the Way: Outdoor Lighting Products for Daylight Savings

November 3, 2016 at 2:29 pm  •  Posted in Safety  •  0 Comments

On Sunday, November 6 at 2:00 am, Daylight Savings will end, and we’ll all roll our clocks back an hour. While most of us enjoy an extra 60 minutes of sweet, sweet sleep, some poor soul will show up to work an hour early on Monday morning. Don’t be that guy. Remember to “fall back.”

But the end of Daylight Savings is about so much more than sleeping in. As the days get shorter and the nights get longer, outdoor lighting becomes an even greater security and efficiency concern. To mark the end of Daylight Savings, we’ve rounded up a few energy-smart outdoor lighting products to shine brightly through the fall and winter months.

Here are some outdoor lighting products:

OLWX2 LED Low Profile Wall Pack by Lithonia Lighting

As we dream of sunnier days, outdoor lighting works overtime to illuminate building perimeters, driveways, and loading areas. Proper outdoor lighting is essential for security, efficiency, and aesthetics. So why send 400-watt metal halides to do a job that was made for LEDs? Hit the bench, metal halides. Lithonia Lighting will take it from here.

OLWX2 LED Low Profile Wall Packs by Lithonia Lighting:

  • Replace 400W metal halide wall packs, delivering 81% energy savings
  • Are offered in 7,300 (88W) or 13,500 (148W) lumens, for an easy, one-to-one replacement of 400W metal halides—regardless of mounting height
  • Deliver maximum light output and efficiency
  • Can be mounted to a recessed junction box, on conduit/through wiring, as an uplight or downlight, or as a high-powered floodlight (using floodlight mounting accessories)
  • Deliver an impressive service life of 20+ years
  • Maintain the sleek, low-profile aesthetic of the popular OLWX1, with more lumens and mounting options for floodlight and wall pack applications
  • Are ideal for loading areas, building perimeters, driveways, and sign and floodlighting applications


Eaton’s Lumark Night Falcon LED Floodlight

Some things don’t last as long as we’d hope, like holiday weekends, a full tank of gas, and summer vacations. But unlike the days of summer long gone, Eaton’s Lumark Night Falcon LED Floodlight will keep on shining for many days, weeks, and years to come.
