Light Distribution Types for LED Area Lights
LED area light fixtures are available with different light distributions so you can use the one that will best light what you need illuminated. Some light distributions are more narrow, while others are very wide. While there are five total types of light distributions, LED area lights typically come in one of four.
- Type II: More narrow distribution type that projects most of the light to the sides with very little light shining behind the fixture. Typically used for highway on and exit ramps, residential streets, and wide walkways.
- Type III: Similar to type II with light projecting out further. Designed for general parking areas and roadways.
- Type IV: Designed for installation of the sides or buildings, the perimeter of parking areas, and side-of-road lighting.
- Type V: Circular light distribution type with the same amount of light projected at all angles. Designed for large open spaces like intersections, large parking lots, and roadway medians.
