Ambient Lighting (Monuments And Other Structures)
Definition: Ambient lighting is a general illumination that comes from all directions in an area that has no visible source. This type of lighting is in contrast to directional lighting. For a landscape lighting or architectural lighting designer, ambient lighting typically represents the baseline amount of illumination on a particular property or structure in question – for which the designer may or may not have any control. For commercial building owners, the overall lighting effect can be enhanced by ensuring that all lighting is directed only toward its intended focal plane; e.g., area lighting with full-cutoff (parking lot lighting and walkway lighting) directed downward only (no spillage horizontally); architectural lighting that is directed only toward the building with no glare produced in any other viewing plane. Ambient lighting provides a new experience to any outdoor space. Whether you choose wall lights or path lights, let Electric Skyline help you “shine a light” on your next outdoor space redesign.
Street Lamps – Street Lighting
Street lighting is a key organizing streetscape element that defines the nighttime visual environment in urban settings. Street lighting includes roadway and pedestrian lighting in the public right-of-way. Street light poles and fixtures can also create a defining visual characteristic during daylight hours. Quality street lighting helps define a positive urban character and supports nighttime activities. The quality of visual information is critical for both traffic safety and pedestrian safety and security. Lighting should be designed not only for vehicular traffic on the roadways, but also for pedestrians on sidewalks and pedestrian paths.
Lighting an industrial environment is not always an easy task. Because of a wide variety of operations, it’s important to consider many elements that work to impact the amount of light reaching a surface, as well as its quality. Electric Skyline has lit vast warehouses, complex machinery, large mass merchandisers, and a wide range of process and assembly industries.
