Proper road lighting is a guarantee of traffic safety

Sunlight is the perfect light source, allowing the eye to explore the surrounding area with the smallest details. Unfortunately, however, natural light is not always available – it is not available in the dark. Luckily we have the help of man-made technology – external lighting systems. The main task of the road lighting system is to ensure the safety of people and vehicles in the dark. Road lighting is very important not only inside the city but also outside the city. The only exception is road lighting on highways, where traffic is heavier.

Proper road lighting is the guarantee of traffic safety. Highway lighting is a national task. Usually, the traffic on the highway doesn’t subside for a minute. This works during the day as well as at night. On the highways of many countries, heavy trucks are often driven around the clock. High-quality lighting of highways is an important area that city managers must seriously consider as it aims to address the flow of goods on a national scale. Design engineers installing such lighting are faced with the daunting task of providing the safest possible lighting for highways.

Professional lighting of highways is carried out by means of lamps with a luminous flux directional optical system. Road lighting with light scattering lamps is not permitted. The second mandatory requirement for lamps is their durability. The third is the budget cost.

There is a set of technical requirements for A1-level roads, namely for expressways. They are rough as follows:

  • Luminous flux – up to 28,000 LM;
  • Average level lighting of the road surface – 20lux;
  • The average brightness of the road surface – up to 1.5 cd/m2

The luminaire must meet the specified parameters with minimal error. It is worth mentioning the widespread use of high-pressure sodium lamps. Sodium lamps are most often installed alongside highways. Let them give proper indicators, the cost of highway lighting is quite expensive in the state budget. And all because traditional high-pressure sodium and metal halide lamps consume a lot of energy: about 400 watts at the aforementioned rates.

The ideal replacement for highway road lighting is LED street lights.

Advantages of YIBAI high efficiency smart LED street lights:

  • Long lasting lifespan.
  • Better resistance to temperature and humidity.
  • Qualitative Spectroscopy.
  • Lower power consumption at similar light levels.
  • Stable light (clear spectrum, no flickering or lightwave oscillation).
  • Safety and maintenance. LED has no special operation requirements, continuous and stable operation, the lamp has double protection to ensure its high efficiency, and no harmful substances inside the light source.

When replacing the old luminaires, it should be remembered that such a process is quite difficult and expensive, so urban road lighting and highway lighting should be trusted by reliable, trustworthy companies. YIBAI – one of the largest professional road lighting manufacturers in China, has long established itself in this market segment.
