Low Voltage LED Flood Lights
When looking to add some outdoor accent lighting, Low Voltage LED Flood Lights will be easy to add to your existing low voltage power line run. If you need to highlight a feature in your outdoor space, you will need to determine the degree of beam spread for your LED Flood Lights Outdoor Fixtures. Most will come in 10, 30 and 60 degrees of spread. The amount of spread will indicate how wide the coverage for the light will be,
If you are trying to highlight a small item such as a statue, plack or other small item the 10 degree of spread will give you a narrow band of light for this.
If you are trying to highlight a medium sized item or a large item at a distance a 35 degree spread of light will do. I have a 35 degree spread of light on my flagpole, this allows me to fly my flag 24 hours a day.
A 60 degree spread is more like a flood light, it will give a lot of light in a large area. if you are trying to light an area for security or safety to get into the house this is a good style of light.
