What is LED Lighting?
Outdoor LED lighting is a type of lighting technology that uses light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to provide illumination for outdoor areas such as streets, parking lots, and industrial sites. LED lighting is becoming increasingly popular for outdoor use due to its energy efficiency, long lifespan, and ability to provide high-quality, directional light
One of the biggest benefits of outdoor LED lighting is its energy efficiency.
LEDs use significantly less energy than traditional lighting technologies such as incandescent bulbs or metal halide lamps, which can result in significant cost savings for cities and other industrial areas. Additionally, LEDs have a longer lifespan than traditional lighting sources, which means less maintenance and replacement costs.
Outdoor LED lighting also provides a higher quality of light than traditional lighting sources. LEDs emit a bright, white light that is similar to daylight, which can improve visibility and safety for pedestrians and drivers. Additionally, LED lights can be directed to specific areas, which means that light is not wasted on areas that do not need it. This feature can help reduce light pollution and improve the aesthetics of a city.
Dark Sky & Fauna Filters
Eliminate blue light and provide warm colours with white light LEDs.
Us and those around us.
We are constantly increasing our knowledge about what good lighting is and want to remain at the forefront in providing the best optical solutions to enhance well-being for both us and the ecosystem around us.
In urban environments illumination itself, or sudden changes to it, can influence how nocturnal fauna behave.
Some species of both flora and fauna are especially sensitive to changes in brightness levels or light wavelengths, as they influence how they communicate, navigate, or reproduce.
Many species are especially sensitive to the lower part (blue light) of the spectrum from 380 to 500 nanometres which should be avoided where possible.
Fauna Filters Lenses
With our new Fauna Filter lenses, the spectral area that contains blue light can be almost completely eliminated while maintaining a good level of optical performance and providing safe night-time illumination for everyone. By eliminating these wavelengths, our Fauna Filter lenses also limit light pollution and allow better visibility of the night sky.
· How much blue light is getting through?
· What is the colour temperature?
· How does the light look after using AMBER lenses?
The answer and exact values vary depending on the chosen LED, its CCT, and what beam is selected, but we have collected a good amount of data below to give you an idea, but roughly 99 % of the blue light is absorbed by the lens.
