What Should be Paid Attention to in the Building Facade LED Lighting?

The building facade LED lighting is a way to highlight the architectural shape and three-dimensional effect through lighting techniques, and even the texture of the materials and the details of the decoration are displayed. For the city’s nightlife, it not only makes the building more eye-catching but also allows the building to construct a strong impression, thereby generating great social and economic benefits.

Compared with traditional light sources, LED lights have strong controllability and fast response speed, which brings feasibility to dimming. Combining wired or wireless control devices on this basis can form a lighting control system, which is more suitable for building facade lighting. The clever use of LED lights in building facade lighting can give full play to its small size and controllable lighting parameters, thus achieving atmosphere rendering.

According to the lighting needs of the building’s facade and the surrounding environment of the building, the encapsulation structure shall be set up scientifically and reasonably. The LED lights are hidden in the main building, and on this basis, the secondary light distribution can not only meet the lighting needs, but also enhance the decorative effect of the facade lighting and produce a beautiful experience.

Let us take a look at what LED lights are often used in building facade lighting

LED pixel mesh lights (Click here for details) are widely used in building facade lighting projects. The biggest advantage of the LED pixel mesh light is that it can form a dot matrix screen, and the visual effect is very good when viewed from a long distance. Therefore, pixel mesh lights are widely used in the production of large-area building vertex array screens, wall lighting of building facades, outlines of buildings, bridges and other buildings, and other lighting occasions for various special-shaped objects and buildings. It can replace a display screen of a certain specification, and can change various patterns, texts, cartoons, and video effects.

The most commonly used lights for building facade lighting projects are LED linear lights. Residential buildings generally take people’s rest into consideration, and often just do some simple lighting decorations on the outside of the top floor. The outline around the roof is drawn with linear lights, which not only highlights the effect that can be seen from a high place, but also the architectural features of the facade.  Commercial buildings are generally decorated with linear lights on the glass facade of the building, so that the edges and corners of the building are distinct.

In addition to the LED linear lights, the LED wall washer lights are frequently used in building facade lighting projects. Wall washer light, just like its name, it will produce a light effect that washes the wall like water.  LED wall washers are commonly used lights in building lighting projects. Because of its high light efficiency and rich colors, it is very suitable for building decorative lighting and outline architectural forms.

Floodlights are also one of the more common lights in lighting projects. Generally, floodlights are needed for large-area building lighting. Because the floodlight has a wide range of illumination, the angle of illumination is adjustable, and it can be aimed in any direction. In addition, the floodlight structure is not susceptible to weather. It is widely used in engineering projects such as mountains, tunnels, bridges, stadiums, large sculptures, architectural outlines, and parks.

There is another kind of light that will be used in the building lighting project is the underground light. This kind of light is mainly buried underground and used to clean the facade of buildings or brighten trees. It is widely used in commercial district office buildings, urban green belts, gardens, parks, scenic spots, commercial blocks, building steps and so on.

Facade lighting of architectural engineering is increasingly applied to urban nightscape planning. The city’s important landmark buildings, garden monuments, skyscrapers, etc. can all be beautified by the use of night-time facade lighting, which not only enriches the development of the city’s night scene, but also improves the quality of the citizens’ night economic living environment. According to the regular combination of points, lines and surfaces illuminated by different lights, light and dark, movement and stillness, the geometric beauty, layering and three-dimensional sense of the building are expressed. So what should be paid attention to in the building facade LED lighting?

Unity, change, harmony

Pay attention to the front lighting of buildings according to the urban landscape lighting, formal and orderly areas or the overall planning requirements of individual facade lighting projects. Each large area, each area, and each individual small building project facade lighting structure must have its own characteristics and cannot be the same. In time and space, it must be changed. The lighting technology, brightness, and color changes make the facade lighting appear lively and energetic. But there is also beauty in harmony with the surrounding light conditions.

Artistic

The aesthetic law of buildings is mainly to use the point, line, and surface to study the development of geometric shapes and their cultural colors to express the law of combination and change. The facade lighting system uses light to express the geometric beauty, layering, immersion and three-dimensionality of the building.

Obvious characteristics, prominent key points, and rich cultural connotations

The LED façade lighting highlights a unique style, with obvious era and regional characteristics. The lighting design of the exterior facade further elaborates and deepens the cultural characteristics of the building. At night, lighting is used to reshape the image of the building, showing the other side of the image construction. Although it is the same object and the same subject, the effect of light from sunlight is different.

Safety and environmental protection

Including the safety and lighting environment of the lighting system itself. Make full use of high-tech, develop new high-efficiency and energy-saving lighting methods. Considering a variety of environmental factors, choose economical, practical and energy-saving electric light sources, choose economical, practical, energy-saving electric light source. Reasonably choose the lighting installation location to maximize the lighting efficiency. Control glare and prevent light pollution.

When we analyze the building façade LED lighting, we should reduce the difference between the brightness or color of the building and the surrounding living environment, reflect the harmony and beauty of the surrounding lighting, and make the lighting control effect of the entire building project integrated. Sometimes the lighting facilities around the building will bring some unfavorable factors to the development of pedestrians and their surrounding social environment.

The basic principles of aesthetics can be applied to the design of lights and lanterns, and the lighting products can be designed into elegant shapes. At the same time, on the premise of avoiding affecting the normal cell growth of research plants and facilitating system maintenance and enterprise management, it is hidden in the branches and leaves of big trees, so that it can become such a very beautiful small landscape during the day and night.
