Outdoor Lighting Essentials: Picking the Ideal LED Wall Pack

When it comes to lighting up commercial and industrial spaces, the right choice of LED wall packs can make all the difference. These powerhouse fixtures not only illuminate but also enhance security and visibility, ensuring a productive and safe environment. But with a myriad of options available, finding the perfect LED wall pack tailored for these spaces can be quite the journey.

Understanding the Specific Needs

Commercial and industrial settings often require robust lighting solutions that cater to specific needs. Whether it’s a warehouse, manufacturing plant, retail shop, or office complex, each space has unique lighting demands. This is where LED wall packs step in as a versatile and reliable lighting fixture.

1. Lumens – Brightness Beyond Numbers

First things first, lumens are your best friends when it comes to measuring brightness. For larger spaces like warehouses or car parks, opting for LED wall packs with higher lumens ensures ample illumination. Transitioning from indoor to outdoor spaces within a commercial complex might require wall packs with varying lumen outputs to maintain consistent brightness levels.

2. Energy Efficiency – Brightness without the Bill Shock

Efficiency is key, especially in commercial and industrial settings where lighting is a significant part of operational costs. LED wall packs boast exceptional energy efficiency, allowing businesses to save on electricity bills without compromising on brightness. Striking the right balance between lumens and wattage ensures optimal energy consumption. This balance ensures optimal energy usage without compromising on the brightness needed to effectively illuminate the space, translating into long-term cost savings.

NET LED Lighting’s Easton Wall Pack comes equipped with an integral photocell, detecting ambient light levels, and turning the fitting on only when needed. The LED wall pack will automatically switch on at dusk and turn off at dawn without requiring manual intervention, minimising energy consumption, and reducing electricity costs. This feature offers several benefits for both convenience and efficiency:

  • Extended Lifespan – by reducing unnecessary usage, the LED bulbs can last longer. The automated operation based on natural light conditions helps preserve the lifespan of the fixture.
  • Easton Wallpack Tri-Colour IP65 40W Enhanced Security and Safety – constant illumination during the night enhances security around a building. By ensuring well-lit surroundings, these fixtures can deter potential intruders and improve safety for pedestrians or employees accessing the areas after dark.
  • Convenience – integral photocell sensors eliminate the need for separate timers or manual switches, offering a hassle-free lighting. solution. Once installed, they operate autonomously based on ambient light levels.
  • Compliance with Regulations – in some areas, there might be regulations or guidelines regarding outdoor lighting usage to minimise light pollution. LED wall packs with integral photocell sensors help comply with these standards by reducing unnecessary light output during nighttime hours.
  • Cost Savings – while the initial cost might be slightly higher compared to standard fixtures, the long-term savings in energy bills and maintenance costs due to the extended lifespan of LED bulbs can outweigh the initial investment.

3. Colour Temperature – Setting the Mood

Colour temperature adds depth and character to outdoor spaces. Warm tones (lower Kelvin temperatures) create a welcoming ambiance, perfect for outdoor seating areas or walkways.

Meanwhile, cooler tones (higher Kelvin temperatures) provide enhanced visibility, ideal for industrial settings or security-focused areas. The Easton LED Wall Pack offers a diverse range of colour temperature with its Tri-Colour feature.

Electrical contractors can choose between 3000K, 4000K or 5500K at the time of installation, saving time on site. What’s more, electrical wholesalers can reduce their stock holding considerably, with one fitting providing three colour temperatures.


4. Durability – Weathering the Elements

Outdoor environments are unforgiving, subjecting lighting fixtures to varying weather conditions. LED wall packs designed for durability come equipped with higher Ingress Protection (IP) ratings, ensuring resilience against moisture, dust, and extreme temperatures. The Easton Wall Pack has an IP65 and IK10 rated housing, protecting it from water and impact. This robustness ensures consistent performance and longevity, making it a reliable choice for outdoor lighting solutions in commercial and industrial spaces.

5. Design – Beyond Functionality

While functionality is crucial, aesthetics also play a significant role in outdoor lighting. LED wall packs and wall lights come in various designs, shapes, and sizes. Contractors and business owners can select fixtures that not only serve the intended purpose but also complement the architectural design or ambiance of the space.

Businesses committed to eco-friendly initiatives can make a conscious choice by opting for LED wall packs, reducing their carbon footprint while benefiting from efficient outdoor lighting solutions.

Your Questions Answered

How long do LED wall packs last?

On average, LED wall packs can last anywhere between 50,000 to 100,000 hours of continuous use. The Easton Wall Pack comes equipped with a Tridonic driver as standard, ensuring a level of quality and reliability. These drivers undergo rigorous testing and adhere to stringent quality standards, minimising the risk of premature failures and ensuring consistent performance.

How do I choose an LED wall pack?

Understanding the lighting needs of the area is crucial. Factors like the size of the space, required brightness, and the purpose of the lighting (security, ambiance, visibility) dictate the type of wall pack needed. For example, a walkway between two commercial buildings might require high output wall packs for ample illumination and security, while decorative lighting in an outdoor seating area could require softer, mood-enhancing up/down wall lights.

What size LED wall pack do I need?

Electrical contractors should assess the area to be illuminated. Larger spaces such as car parks or building entrances may require higher output wall packs to ensure adequate coverage and brightness. Different spaces might need varying levels of illumination. Understanding the lumens per unit area helps in choosing the right-sized wall pack to achieve the necessary brightness.

How high should an LED wall pack be mounted?

LED wall packs are typically mounted at heights ranging from 8ft-15ft above ground level. This range allows for adequate illumination while considering factors like the light distribution pattern, beam angle, and brightness required for the specific application.


Selecting the perfect LED wall pack for your outdoor space is an art and science combined. By understanding lumens, energy efficiency, colour temperature, durability, and the significance of design, electrical wholesalers, contractors, and business owners can illuminate their environments effectively. LED wall packs not only provide illumination but also create an atmosphere, enhance safety, and contribute to a greener, more sustainable future.
