It doesn't get much brighter than HID.

High-intensity discharge lamps (or HID) are some of the highest intensity lights on the market for many applications.

They create light by forming an electric arc between two tungsten electrodes within the fixture. Metal salts then melt inside the fixture and their plasma dramatically increases the intensity of light.

Due to their brilliance, HID is a perfect choice for applications where a high intensity of light is needed for a large area.


There are many reasons to consider HID.

The high-intensity discharge lamp (or HID) offers excellent energy savings with an intense output of light. In the last few years, HID technology has improved by leaps and bounds: now these lamps can last longer and produce a more efficient color than its predecessors. In many situations, Broadway can replace an existing fluorescent or incandescent lamp with HID and immediately decrease wattage while delivering the same output of light.

Broadway Lights has deep experience in recommending and installing HID for a variety of applications, and we can help you determine if it is the best lamp for your:

  • parking lot or other safety-critical area.
  • stadium, warehouse or theater.
  • energy-efficiency strategy involving lamp-for-lamp replacements.
