Types of LED Flood Lights
Broadcast Series – The Broadcast Series is a brand of floodlights that are divided into three subcategories (FLK, FLF, and FLL). This division is based on individual uses and needs. For example, a small retail store looking to illuminate a door outside their building will have different lighting needs than an airport, highway, or large parking lot. You can find more details on these individual categories below.
FLF Series – FLF Flood Lights are designed for low to medium levels of brightness and are generally used for lighting small outdoor areas such as alleyways, walkways, and building exteriors. The FLF Series ranges from 15, 30, 50, & 80 watts and projects up to 10,342 lumens of illumination.
FLL Series – FLL Flood Lights are designed for medium to high levels of brightness. These are typically used in parking lots, roadways, and other commercial outdoor settings. The FLL Series ranges from 100, 150, 230, & 300 watts and projects up to 40,718 lumens of illumination.
FLK Series – FLK Flood Lights are designed for maximum brightness and durability. These are ideal for industrial environments such as highways, airports, and large parking lots. The FLK Series comes in only one wattage (400 watts) and projects 51,343 lumens of illumination.
