  • High bay reflectors of Alzak aluminum for high wattage applications
  • Internally fluted glass globes reduce glare and provide comfortable viewing light
  • Wide range of light sources and wattages to meet specific lighting needs – 50-400W high pressure sodium (HPS); 70-400W metal halide (MH)
  • High power factor (90%+) ballasts reduce power costs – allow more luminaires per circuit
  • Four mounting arrangements to suit any lighting layout – pendant, ceiling, wall bracket and stanchion
