December 31,2021


    With the continuous development of architectural space design, people began to learn to use light to design buildings, create levels, and outline the art of life. Outdoor lighting is an important design element for outdoor spaces. Good lighting design meets the needs of night lighting and also brings good visual enjoyment.




    In order to shape the sense of hierarchy and rhythm of outdoor space through light, we need to choose different types of outdoor lighting fixtures, such as outdoor wall lights, underground lights, and ground plug lights.





    It is usually installed on the three-dimensional wall of the courtyard or the pillars of the gallery frame. It is widely used in architectural lighting or on the facade that needs to create special lighting effects to realize the function of lighting and decorative walls.

    The wall lamp is installed on the building, and different shapes can be "painted" through the light, emphasizing the different shape effects of the whole building.







    Underground lights are embedded in the ground, and the surface is almost flush with the ground. They are generally installed on both sides of the garden sidewalk or important places that require attention, and mainly play the role of pedestrian lighting.




    In addition to being used as indicator lighting, it can also be used to wash walls or illuminate trees, thus playing a decorative role, and has considerable flexibility in application.



    The lawn lamp is easy to install and has strong decoration. With its unique design and soft lighting, it adds lighting safety and visual beauty to the green landscape. It is used for the lighting facilities around the lawn and is an important landscape facility.




    As people’s demand for lighting design increases, many lawn lights with simple and generous designs are gradually derived, which form a landscape on its own no matter the day or night, and are widely used in parks, gardens, villas, tourist attractions, square green spaces and other green areas to beautify. And commercial pedestrian streets, parking lots and other places.

    As a kind of landscape lamp, the ground plug lamp is generally used in the green belt of parks, squares, communities or streets, such as flowers, lawns, etc. Compared with other lamps, it has the advantages of convenient installation, simple maintenance, and strong viewing.


    At present, ground plug lights can be roughly divided into two categories: practical plug lights and ornamental plug lights. Different types of lamps have different application scenarios.




    The lighting is arranged under the main plants in the garden to form a strong three-dimensional feeling and a warm atmosphere.


    Practical plug-in lights: Mainly used in the green belt to achieve the purpose of beautifying the green scenery at night, avoiding the problems of general buried lights being easily blocked by fallen leaves and being splashed by muddy water on rainy days. The maintenance of the lights is convenient, and it is also common in installation.




   Ornamental plug-in lights: Ornamental plug-in lights are more of a decorative lighting, commonly used in scenes such as lighting festivals, special festivals, and architectural outdoor landscapes to improve the overall viewing of special scenes.





    Divided into embedded installation and surface installation. Used for building facades, underground parking lots entrances and exits, parks and other places. The embedded parts need to be embedded in advance, pay attention to the installation height.




    When used as a night lighting fixture, it not only increases safety, but also drives the surrounding light perception.


    Footlight generally use green and environmentally friendly LED light sources, which have low heat, no flicker, and no radiation. Not only are they cold light sources that will not produce light pollution, but they also have a long service life.




    No matter what kind of outdoor lighting, you need to consider the outdoor lighting style and the overall style of the house, and also need to consider the color of the lamp body, IP index, and cleaning and maintenance.




    The IP index is a more important consideration for outdoor lighting. The higher the IP value, the better the dustproof and waterproof performance. Compared with indoor luminaires, there is no roof to protect against wind and rain, and they often need to be installed on the ground. Therefore, outdoor luminaires must have strict requirements for dust and water resistance.


    In addition, outdoor lighting design should pay attention to the following points:


(1) Appropriate illumination

    Arrange different brightness in different spaces and control the overall brightness at the same time to achieve the goal of energy saving.


(2) Uniform tone

    Generally use warm colors or choose light sources with strong color rendering. It is not advisable to choose light sources with too mixed or weird colors.


(3) Prevent glare

    Choose light sources and lamps reasonably, try to avoid seeing the light and avoid unpleasant light pollution caused by exposed light sources.


(4) Cool color light source

    If the high-pressure pump lamp has strong ultraviolet rays and is easy to attract mosquitoes, try to avoid using cold-color light sources. Orange lights have weak ultraviolet rays and have a mosquito repellent effect.


(5) There are different focuses according to different lighting subjects

    For example, when designing waterscape lighting, pay attention to the shape of water flow. It is best to lay lights from underwater to show the flowing feeling of waterscape.




    At the beginning of the outdoor lighting design, the protection issues should be considered, so as to be rainproof, windproof and dustproof. The materials of the lamps should also be more durable to avoid accidents such as leakage, and be combined with the surrounding roads, landscapes, and buildings. The lighting is designed and installed to achieve the unity of its functionality and artistry.
