Delivering Aesthetic Beauty and Practical Illumination

Exterior lighting on school campuses serves two main purposes, practical and aesthetic. On the practical side, safety and security are key. Students, staff and visitors should feel secure in parking areas and walkways, with sufficient pedestrian illumination to avoid trip hazards. Aesthetically pleasing, well-designed spot, accent and landscape lighting create a sense of place and communicate a positive image. Controls that network the entire system make it easy to change effects and optimize energy consumption.


Outdoor Solutions for the Nighttime Environment

The world outside your doors looks very different at night. So the needs of your exterior environment — from wayfinding to security concerns to curb appeal — change from day to night. Complementary designs within luminaire product families allow a cohesive look while addressing these diverse requirements.

These are just some of the benefits of our outdoor solutions:

  • Product families bridging all outdoor applications
  • Uniform illumination for an increased sense of safety
  • Long-life LED solutions that reduce maintenance
  • Controls that lower light levels when space is unoccupied
