What are LED Wall Pack Lights?
A wall pack is a lighting fixture that is used on the outside of buildings to illuminate a large area while withstanding extreme temperatures and various types of abuse. It got its name because they are surface mounted to the side of buildings. You will typically see these used for commercial applications, but they can also be found in residential areas.

When choosing LED lights, you have to consider many factors. One of the first things you need to focus on is the lumens. Lumens is a way to measure the quantity of the visible light released by a source. Most people pay attention to the watts of the LED light. This is the biggest mistake that people make. Instead of looking at the watts, you should consider lumens. This will help you have an energy-efficient lighting system. In LED lights, higher lumens with lower wattage is the perfect lighting choice.

• If you want to have 250-watt metal halide, you will get 9000-12000 lumens. You can also look at LED corn light bulbs in this area.
• Our 80 watt or 100 watt is ideal for efficient lighting solution.
• For 150 or 175, you can look at our extensive range of LED wall lights.
Focus on Light Color
Another thing that you need to focus on is the color of the light. The temperature of the color is measured in Kelvin (K). The yellow light has a lower K number and the white light has higher K number. As mentioned above, the LED lights come in various color options. Here are the colors that you can choose from.
• 3000K– this color light is warm and cozy. It is a great choice for softer areas likes homes or restaurants
• 4000K – it is natural or cool white that is radiant and crisp. This makes it a great for businesses or other areas of work
• 5000K – this is a daylight that offers active and vibrant light. It is an ideal choice for large spaces and outdoors. This is a good choice as you don’t have to spend a lot of time under it. Along with this, it is good for eyes as you won’t have to concentrate on reading and detailed activities.
We recommend you not to go above 5000K as the AMA has restricted it. The use of 5700K and 6500K is dangerous for the environment and your health. 5700K adds blue to the spectrum and can affect melatonin, 6500K is very blue, think Audi headlights.
