What is a Street Light and Floodlight?


Knowing the difference between the two is important for properly lighting any application. Before you can understand the difference, you must know what a beam pattern is. Beam angle or pattern is a measurement of the angles that are formed between a cone of light' s brightest point (the center) and the points on both sides of the center where the light' s intensity is 50 percent as bright. A larger beam angle means a wider spread of light across an area and vice versa with small beam angles.
What is a Beam Angle?
The beam angle is a measure of light spread from the source, such as a light bulb. Broader beam angles will result in more spread-out light, but the light will also be less intense. Vice Versa, narrower angles will have less spread by the higher light intensity.
What is Flood Light?
Flood lights are just what the name says - light fixtures that can produce a significant amount of non-natural light, illuminating a large swatch of areas. When people think flood (as is in floodlights, their minds automatically associate it with water. Floodlights do not correlate with water. Instead, they are floodlights because they flood a large area with light. 
Application of LED Floodlight and Street Light
One of the major differences between LED flood lights and street lights is in their application. LED flood lights are used to light up large areas like sports fields, stadiums, parking lots, or indoor spaces. On the other hand, LED street lamps illuminate roads and streets to make them clear for traffic flow at night. Moreover, it is also an essential part of urban infrastructure because it can effectively improve traffic safety and reduce accidents at night when driving cars.
In terms of energy efficiency, LED floodlights also have the edge over regular street lamps as they consume less power than conventional sodium bulbs or HPS bulbs that come with traditional outdoor lighting systems. This makes them ideal replacements for older lighting units that require frequent maintenance & repair work due to constant exposure to harsh weather conditions such as heavy rainfall/snowfall etc.
