LED Wall Packs
Traditional Wall Packs and now LED Wall Packs are perhaps the most versatile light fixtures used in the lighting industry. When they were first introduced to the marketplace, incandescent bulbs were the standard. With the arrival of new technologies such as Metal Halide (MH) and High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lamps the popularity of Wall Packs increased. Now technology has progressed again and Wall Packs have gone through another light source transformation. The new LED Wall Pack has arrived.
Benefits of LED Wall Packs
Compared to Metal Halide or High Pressure Sodium lamps, LED Wall Packs do not use a ballast. They are instant ON, so there is no waiting for the lamp to warm up. Compared to their predecessors, they possess a longer life span and are more efficient, converting 75 to 80% of energy into light. A 60 watt LED Wall Pack is comparable to a 250 watt Metal Halide bulb, but produces much less heat and reduces energy costs. They operate effectively in both hot and cold weather conditions and are resistant to shock and vibration making them especially well suited to a wide range of climates, locations and applications. A number of models also include dusk-to-dawn (D2D) photocells, turning the light ON at sunset and OFF at sunrise.
How to Update Old Wall Packs to LED Wall Packs
Converting old style Wall Packs to new LED technology is reasonably straightforward. First, disconnect and remove the old bulb and heavy magnetic ballast, then connect raw power 120-277V straight to the lamp socket. Once that is done you can screw in a comparative LED retrofit COB bulb, close the fixture and power it on. Before proceeding however, there are a few things you should consider. First, the age of the Wall Pack. Check its physical condition for potential hazards like compromised seals that could allow water to leak inside the fixture. Second, the physical construction. Older Wall Packs may not possess an adequate enough design to allow for proper heat dissipation. Excessive heat buildup can shorten the lifespan and even destroy an LED lamp. In most cases it is a cheaper and less time consuming option to simply replace the old fixture completely with a new LED Wall Pack.
LED Wall Pack Applications
Because of their versatility and efficiency, LED Wall Packs have a wide range of residential, commercial and industrial applications. LED Wall Packs are installed on the sides of commercial buildings, parking garages, in front of homes, apartments, building walkways, warehouses and many other locations that require lighting. LED Wall Packs provide good security lighting for businesses, commercial buildings and homes with efficient light and great energy savings.

LED Wall Pack Styles
LED Wall Packs come in different styles suitable for an array of residential, industrial and commercial applications. Residential fixtures are lower wattage and great for smaller areas. They are used as additional lighting versus a main light source with selectable color temperatures from 3000 Kelvin to 5000 Kelvin. They are smaller in size and come in many styles and designs to fit the architectural and decor of your residence. Commercial LED Wall Packs come as Cutoff, Half-Cutoff or Full Cutoff. These types help with the direction and spread of the light. Cutoff Fixtures are great for Dark Sky Compliance applications. Commercial LED Wall Packs are designed to deliver higher wattage from 50 to 200 watts, with larger prismatic lenses for wider spread illumination. They come in a variety of commercial and industrial operating voltages from 100V to 277V. Architectural LED Wall Packs come in a variety of finishes and designs. These types of fixtures are ideal for illuminating buildings, outdoor works of art, and large commercial landscape venues such as parks. Some architectural LED Wall Packs feature one or more rotatable light heads, allowing you to adjust and direct the light beam precisely on the object or area that you want to illuminate.
