With the continuous improvement of LED light efficiency and the continuous development of LED products, my country's urban lighting has fully entered the era of LED lighting, and LED lighting technology is playing an increasingly important role in urban landscape lighting. At the same time, this also means that outdoor lighting has higher and higher requirements.

Outdoor led lamps are energy-saving and high-efficiency, with good performance, long life and low maintenance cost. The commonly used lamps include: spotlights, wall washers, line lights, buried lights, step lights, window lights, garden lights, etc. When choosing outdoor lighting fixtures, the overall considerations are as follows:

1. Safety issues: Project buildings, especially ancient buildings, are mainly made of wood. The wood structure itself is flammable. When there is a fire on the site, it is easy to be ignited. The flame retardant grade of the lamps needs to be considered. The higher the flame retardant grade, the higher the safety.

2. Anti-U-V grade: Anti-U-V grade is simply the anti-aging and yellowing ability of the product. The main influence is: ultraviolet rays. If the shell of the lamp turns yellow, it will affect the operation effect of the lamp on the project, and the luminous efficiency will plummet.

3. Anti-salt spray: At the seaside and in hot and humid areas, salt spray can seriously corrode lamps and lanterns, and is prone to electrochemical corrosion reaction and damage lamps.

4. Waterproof: For outdoor lighting, a fatal problem is waterproof. This is another key factor related to lamp life and stability. Especially in landscape lighting projects, the stability of the product is the first, sometimes even more important than the color rendering index and light efficiency, because the maintenance cost of the landscape lighting project is very high.
