Any electrical contractor and almost all commercial property owners, including managers, will consider installing LED Shoebox Lights in their parking areas to save energy and maintenance costs over time.

Choose the right LED shoe box for your car park project

With optimized thermal and optical designs, the Shoebox Light can be widely used in Parking Lots, airports, roadways, warehouse lighting ,supermarket lighting,campuses and streetscapes.

I will introduce all you need to know about LED shoe boxes, parking lots and area lighting.

To make your point of view correct, when you consider installing LED lights in the parking area, you need to follow a few steps:


1-Is it worth upgrading the parking lot lighting to LEDs?

The idea of LED technology is enough to sell someone on making the switch, let alone knowing these fixtures will lower your electric bill and be brighter than ever; however, consider if the application and location for this upgrade will be worth it. Although it is rare not to have a successful outcome, the project you are considering converting to LED fixtures needs to be well thought out to guarantee you will get a return on investment (ROI), and not be a waste of your money.


2. The degree of light attenuation

In fact, most lamps use light attenuation more or less. This phenomenon also occurs when shoe box lights are emerging lamps. The degree of light attenuation directly affects the service life of lighting equipment. Therefore, relevant purchasing personnel in the municipal industry must understand the degree of light attenuation when purchasing shoe box lights.


3.Color temperature

Color temperature

When installing a new LED shoe box light, people first notice the color and high quality of the light. The unique function of the LED light is that it can continuously control the color over time. Traditional forms of lighting suffer from color erosion after months and years of use. Outdoor lighting is usually oriented in 5000k colors.

The effect of warm light on people's lives

LED professional tips: the sun is 5778k, in the LED industry, 5000k is considered to be the closest place to natural sunlight. K stands for "Kelvin", which is the temperature measurement unit used to measure the temperature of stars. Therefore, if a piece of iron is heated to 5778k, it will emit the same color as the sun. The colder stars are yellower, the hotter stars are whiter, and the hottest stars even have blue, visible at very high temperatures. 5000k light colors are used for external areas, warehouses, assembly lines, showrooms, etc. The lighting everywhere should be clear and attention should be paid to details. 4000k is the most common in the office, and people often complain that the lights are too bright. LED lighting even has comfortable visual attributes and is easier to use visually than other forms of traditional office lighting.

3000k colored lights are mainly used in family houses.




Before we use shoe box lights for installation, we need to consider safety, efficiency and practicality. Common light poles include square tube light poles, round pole light poles, and boom light poles. How do we choose?

1. Know the size of the light pole to choose the right shoe box light.

2. Consider the bearing capacity of the bracket to prevent quality problems after long-term use

3. Consider the multi-purpose type of bracket.

4. Bracket installation, considering the installation cost.

5. The weight of the lamp itself

Shoebox lights usually contain many important components, so the actual weight of a shoebox light that looks smaller is not low. However, if the weight is too high, the material requirements for supporting the luminaire are relatively increased. Therefore, when buying shoe box lights, it is necessary to consider the details of the weight of the illuminator itself, and it is best to have both quality and price. Choose a lighter.


6. Safe state

Shoebox light is an emerging and widely used lighting product, which must be connected to a power source to illuminate during normal use. Therefore, in the process of purchasing shoe box lights, you must pay attention to their safety status, such as whether the power cord of the lamp meets the relevant safety certification standards, the quality inspection report of the lamp itself and the model specifications on the safety certificate are consistent. Buyers need to pay attention.


When buying products, providing a wealth of product knowledge is always an additional consideration to ensure that you can get the best lighting fixtures. Always make sure to check whether the product has passed the UL certification and/or DLC certification, because you may be entitled to get a refund from the local electrical company, and ensure that the product is a trusted and reliable product.


Always check to confirm that the quality of the purchased product is the highest, for example to determine the type of drive that manufactures the fixture, does it include a built-in surge protector, and is the company name trustworthy and reliable? If there is a problem with the fixture, having a product backed by the company’s integrity and reliability will provide you with the guarantees you need.


So, taking us to another point, does the device have a warranty, and if so, how long will the warranty process go through? Most companies advertise 5-10 year extended warranty for LED parking lights, but what do they think is the warranty issue? Before making a purchase, make sure to verify what the warranty covers and excludes, and whether a warranty claim is required.
