Flood light squares measure the wide beam, high intensity artificial light. They are typically accustomed to illuminating outdoor playgrounds, while outdoor sporting events are directed in low-light conditions. Multiple high-power flood lights can have gantries for bulb dynamics and maintenance.

Flood lights include the use of high-powered, lightweight bulbs to illuminate a huge exterior location. This type of lighting is well established and additionally requires a large amount of current. Flood lighting can be broadly divided into 3 categories: frontal, basic location and additional assembly. Each has its own particular theme and additional challenges that need to be specified.

LED spotlights have a small beam angle and are suitable for high mast lighting. That is, if the basketball court has a high light hole, the recommended installation is an LED spotlight (depending on the actual situation.) The LED flood light has a larger beam angle, generally speaking, the LED flood light has an angle of 60° ~ 120°. It is usually installed at a distance of 10 meters or less from the ground (depending on the actual situation).
