Shielded Bollard

By Bega

Urban Furniture.  These robust bollards provide glare-free widespread symmetrical illumination while acting as a piece of furniture.  These luminaires are ideal for schools, parks and other public areas.


Visual Lighting Technologies is pleased to announce that beginning 01 March 2009, VLT’s VIMA-5 linear LED fixtures and all ILTI LUCE LUX 3x1 watt LED fixtures will bear the ETL listing.


These products have been tested and found to comply with the standards set by NRTL.  An ETL listing is equivalent to a UL product listing.

Do you know how much light you need?  Are you using too many fixtures? Not enough?

Let our Visual Software assist you with your lighting project.  Visual takes the ’work’ out of guesswork.


Emergency LED option

The architectural sconce family from Lithonia Lighting, is a popular choice for primary exterior lighting with HID or compact fluorescent sources. The ELED egress option* expands the family’s already broad offering of compact fluorescent and quartz egress options. ELED combines an integral – back-mounted battery pack with an effective optical distribution – 9’ X 9’, 1 foot candle distribution (2ELED mounted at 14 feet). The optional redundant-paired LED’s and standard cold-weather battery pack underscores the readiness of this effective egress solution. Specification sheets are available.

New LED Options for Emergency Egress (Lithonia)

Lithonia Lighting announces two LED emergency egress lighting solutions for buildings — AffinityEXT with a new forward throw optic and a family of architectural sconces with integral LED egress. The number of states and communities that require egress lighting outdoors is increasing, and the standards imposed in each jurisdiction can vary significantly. This demands an ever-widening selection of luminaire options to meet these diverse needs.

AFFINITY architectural emergency lighting

Affinity’s architectural aesthetics with its normally off – but always ready to illuminate – LED source, blends with any architectural style. The expanded forward throw optical capability projects a powerful beam of light, achieving a 1fc average as far as 20 feet from the building. This new source and optical capability, when combined with the existing Affinity family, provides attractive options when the specification requires normally off egress capability. Specification sheet are available now.
