High Mast Lighting – Overview
High Mast Lighting solutions are used where large public areas like expressways, railway yards, dockyards, road junctions, toll plazas, warehouses need to be illuminated. An efficient lighting solution, it is the most preferred way of illumination because it can achieve a high space to height ratio. A high mast poleis an ideal solution for large industries where open spaces must be illuminated.
High mast lighting is currently the most efficient and cost-effective way of illuminating large outdoor areas such as highways, railway yards, dock yards, parking lots, shopping centers, power plants, coal mines, warehouses, toll plazas and road junctions.
High masts can be mounted at considerable heights, thus rendering uniform illumination to the entire area. It also enables easier installation and maintenance of luminaires due to motorized controls that lowers and raises the luminaires. The sleek high masts lighting is also aesthetically superior to the conventional lattice structures or lower height poles.
Features of High Mast Lighting
- High Mast Assembly
The assembly is housed in a chassis and is secured axially. The pulley is made of non-corrosive material and runs on self-lubricating bearings with stainless steel spindles. This complete assembly is hot dip galvanized.
The double drum winch driven by a single speed reversible power tool is a self-sustaining mechanism which does not get affected by weather or moisture. It is designed as a self-lubricating winch by using oil bath.
- Lantern Carriages
The lantern carriage is made of durable steel tube and serves the dual purpose of carrying luminaires as well as acts as an electrical conduit. It is provided with rubber gaskets internally which allows easy movement and avoids scratches on the mast surface during movement.
Flexible, marine-grade stainless steel wire ropes (AISI SS316) are used in 7/19 construction in the mast assembly. Accessories like trailing cable, cable connections, lightning arrester, power tool, feeder pillar box and aviation obstruction luminaire are provided with the mast.
High mast lighting system should have the best high mast lighting design calculation. According to the Guide of High Mast Lighting, the mounting height of the luminaries is usually at least 30m. Generally speaking, it need about 300 to 500 lux for entertainment sports field, and 50 to 200 lux for airport , seaport and outdoor industrial areas.
Lighting High Mast Need The Uniformity For Better Coverage
The best high mast pole design and high mast lighting system should take the uniformity into consideration. It is the ratio between Emin/Emax. The highest uniformity is 1.
However, we seldom meet this dates because of inevitable light scattering and different angle of the luminaries. Lighting uniformity of 0.7 is high because this is also for professional standard.
Why do we need to high uniformity illumination?
It is because the uneven bright would cause eye fatigue, and it might be dangerous with the lower bright. MFG high mast lighting provide you with free high mast tower design to make sure the best high mast lighting system for you.
High mast light provides high illumination for many outdoor areas such as airport, seaport, stadium etc. Led high mast lights are the best high mast luminaire because of its low high mast light cost, high light lumens, convenient for adjust and durability.
