Military Base Lighting Solutions
Military Base Light Kits
Army, Navy, Airforce, Marines
No matter the military base size, we have the right lighting solution.
Proper lighting for government run facilities like military bases is essential to maintaining safety, security, and daily operations. There are many areas on base to consider when creating an effective lighting design – including outdoor lighting surrounding the premise, barracks, common rooms like cafeterias, restrooms, etc. LightMart can help with LED lighting solutions and long lasting, handcrafted lighting equipment for large commercial sized projects!

Top LightMart Product Picks for Military Base Lighting
Frequently Asked Questions:
What Types of Lighting Equipment are Needed for a Military Base?
There is no one specific way to create a military lighting design. Different areas on a base will use different forms of lighting styles. However, designs should be considered when installing lighting equipment in barracks, vehicles, storage, armory, base parking lots, office areas, bathrooms, etc. Bathroom ceilings, for example, tend to use canopy lights. For parking lots, we suggest LightMart’s LED adjustable parking lot light pole kits or our fixed LED parking lot light pole kits.
How Often Should Lights be Serviced on a Military Base?
To non-military personnel, larger bases look like private communities and have their own roads that lead to the base – often lined with street lights – as well as gas stations, and even grocery stores with parking lots. Army Base Lights also includes housing for military families, which includes rural neighborhood street lighting on residential blocks and cul de sacs on base.
That’s why LED lights are the best resolution to lighting military bases. LED lights are low maintenance – as they can last anywhere from five years to 10+ years. Plus, LEDs emit low heat and energy, reducing the cost of maintenance and the monthly electric bill.
In terms of light pole maintenance, steel and aluminum light poles can last upwards of 100 years. Steel and aluminum poles have a long lifespan. LightMart’s steel light poles are strong enough to withstand strong winds in coastal regions – with an EPA capacity to endure anywhere from 80 mph - 140 mph winds. Aluminum poles are non-corrosive and also have the benefit of being protected with aluminum oxide, which is an electrical insulator that safeguards the pole from electrical currents. Plus, our LightMart aluminum poles have a 10 year warranty!
What are the Recommended Brightness Levels Suggested for a Military Base?
Considering how large military bases are, we suggest using high mast poles or light poles 25+ feet long with a high lumen output in areas like open fields. High lumen LED lights are at least 103 lumens per light fixture. Cool toned lighting is also suggested for outdoor light fixtures on base, to ensure the area is flooded with plenty of brightness to function at night.
Since powerful high lumen lighting is suggested on the exterior of military bases, we suggest using LED lighting, which increases energy savings, and decreases cost and maintenance. LED lighting is specifically helpful for flood lighting and light bulbs with a high lumen output, and large facilities that require dozens of light bulbs.
What is the Military Lighting Design for an Airfield?
Light location, elevation, and how the light beam is positioned are factors that must be considered when installing airfield lighting. Direct burial is often the method used to place lighting along the runway on an airfield. An airfield lighting design may also differ depending on the military branch and airfield category – for example, elevated runway guard lights are optional at army facilities, and a requirement at certain air force facilities. Handholes are also required for certain airfield lighting systems to ensure proper wiring and circuitry connectivity and maintenance.
What are Some Suggestions to Ensure Safety Security on Base?
Flood light wall packs mounted to the side of a building’s exterior wall near entrance and exit doors can provide an added layer of visibility and security on base. Proper exit lighting is also important, especially in the event of an emergency. Our lighting experts also suggest mounting security cameras to the top of hinge based light poles with easy lowering access, or security camera poles – available in steel, aluminum, and fiberglass.
