Key Highlights


Efficient Lighting EL-159

Exterior Wall Mount
Powder Coated White or Black
Wet Listed

Fixture EL-159 was used on balconies and common areas throughout the property.

Outdoor living is essential on the list of amenities at Hunters Glen Apartments with highlights including an outdoor courtyard, pool and sundeck, and pet friendly areas. Shopping is within walking distance, another attraction to tenants.

The Opportunity

Breezeway fixtures were old, in disrepair, and did not fit with the aesthetic the property was looking for during a large-scale renovation. They were also too dark during the day due to poor light output and existing fixtures being on photocells and turning off during the day. Many tenants often walk so it was important to have proper illumination for safety so property management company Bozutto was ready to update lighting.

The Solution

Bay Lighting provided new updated and decorative outdoor rated fixtures that matched new aesthetic for the renovated property. Fixtures were low profile to prevent breakage during move-ins and move-outs as well as regular breezeway traffic.

The Benefits

Bypassed photocells and high-output lamps helped increase light output at all times of the day. In this instance improved lighting and output was the goal, but still provided a 2.52 year payback and over $4,500 in yearly energy and maintenance savings.
Hunters Glen wanted to maintain consistency between the common area breezeways and unit balcony lights throughout the property. The same fixtures were installed for both applications with LED lamps also installed on balconies to help achieve this goal, in addition to reducing in-unit maintenance for these areas.

    Emergency lights typically have a battery back-up that will operate the light in the event the power goes out, regardless of if there’s a generator for back-up power. Exit signs can and should also have a battery, especially if the building doesn’t have generator. Often during fire department inspections, they check that your emergency lights are operational, both with and without power. Emergency lights must be kept properly maintained to meet all federal and state requirements, so when installing new ones or updating old ones, should you just change the battery or replace the entire fixture?

    There are many building codes, electrical codes, and emergency standards outlined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), International Building Code (IBC), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), state and local regulations, and others that provide lighting guidelines and requirements for commercial and similar properties. These include for interior lighting, exterior lighting, and emergency lighting.
