Siting a flylight

Every application is unique, so each situation requires an individual assessment for flylight siting, however, there are basic principals that should be followed:

- Recommend enough flylights to cover the area to be protected in line with the recommended coverage guidelines for each model

- Install flylights away from sources of light competition, such as windows, doors and high powered luminaires

- Consider sources of heat and airflow, such as heaters / AC units

- Don’t install killing grid units directly above sensitive areas, such as food preparation areas

- Glueboard units should be used in sensitive applications such as food preparation or production areas

- Consider access for installation and future servicing

- Wherever possible, flylights should be positioned at 90° to sources of natural light, such as windows, doors and skylights

- Flylights should be positioned in between potential entry points, so as to intercept flying insects before they reach sensitive areas

- Flylights should not be sited either too high or too low in the area to be protected, with an optimum height of around 6’7”, for most flying insect species
