GreenLight Project HighLight Part 4:

Hein Electric Supply West Allis 
Exterior Lighting 


During the acquisition of our new corporate headquarters in West Allis, a list of key upgrades were identified that would need to be performed prior to our relocation.  One of the top priorities was establishing our identity and brand in our new neighborhood, as well as enhancing the parking lot and the building exterior.  This was accomplished by installing new signage, as well as pole and building mounted lighting.

The building’s exterior was lit with a mix of high pressure sodium, mercury vapor, quartz and compact fluorescent.  The white finish of the building magnified and drew attention to the different light source used.  Our solution was to replace certain fixtures, while eliminating others, as the improved coverage pattern of LED allowed us to reduce fixture quantity while improving the overall light levels.


The products chosen are from Atlas Lighting and include two sizes of traditional glass-front wall packs and full cutoff fixtures, as well as an adjustable floodlight. All products are DLC listed and reduce demand at least 70% on a per-fixture basis.  The manufacturer’s standard 4500K color temperature is perfect for the lighter color of our building and provides white light without the hint of blue associated with so many of today’s LED products.

The end result is uniform light that accents our building and is safe for pedestrian and vehicular traffic.  On your next evening outing through West Allis, be sure to take a drive by.  It will be easy to spot the newest kid on 116th street.



Atlas product are stocked and on display at our Oak Creek, Waukesha, West Bend and West Allis locations.  If you’re in need of application or design assistance, give our Lighting Department a call.  They’ll be happy to lend a hand.
