OPTIMAL BEAM ANGLES FOR FLAGPOLE LIGHTING:
- Narrow Beam Angles (10-30 degrees): Ideal for taller flagpoles, narrow beam angles provide focused illumination, preventing light spillage and maximizing visibility.
- Medium Beam Angles (30-60 degrees): Suitable for standard-sized flagpoles, medium beam angles offer a balance between focused lighting and coverage area.
- Wide Beam Angles (60+ degrees): Opt for wide beam angles to illuminate both the flag and its surroundings, making it an excellent choice for shorter flagpoles and smaller spaces.
FACTORS INFLUENCING BEAM ANGLE CHOICE:
- Flagpole Height: Taller flagpoles require narrower beam angles to effectively illuminate the flag while minimizing light dispersion.
- Flag Size: Larger flags may benefit from wider beam angles to ensure comprehensive coverage, while smaller flags might flourish with narrower beams.
- Flagpole Surroundings: Consider the area around the flagpole. Wider beam angles can enhance the overall ambiance of the surroundings.
INSTALLATION TIPS FOR FLAGPOLE LIGHTING:
- Height Placement: Position fixtures at a calculated height to ensure an even spread of light across the flag.
- Angle Adjustment: Fine-tune the fixture's angle to eliminate shadows and achieve optimal illumination.
- Spacing: Install fixtures at a calculated distance apart for consistent and balanced lighting.
