Hello all. I recently discovered this site and it is a great resource. After about fourteen months of research, planning and work I am close to erecting my first billboard structure.
My builder suggested 4 Halide 250 lights (2 per side) on a double stacked 9' 6" X 24' each facing, structure. I have seen this exact structure at another location with the same lighting and it is sufficeint; however, I have looked at some alternatives and would like some additional input if possible.
I have even looked into a solar lighting option but I am not convinced it will provide the lighting I want for the signs. Here is the link for that: http://www.mrsolar.com/page/MSOS/CTGY/sign
I saw the company Formetco recommended on the forum and I see they also have some lighting options w\ the Adtech EcoSeries and the Halophane Series. Either of these two designs are suitable for my building permit so that's not a limitation for me.
Of course I am looking for the most efficeint option while providing the best coverage for the signs; but, I am also willing to spend a little more to make sure the lighting is adequate.
I am going to call Formetco to discuss their lights but before I did I wanted to see what others in the business are using, what you may like and dislike about the options mentioned.
Thank you for your time and advice!
