Get brilliant lighting for signs with the 120v Medium Double-Ended HID Flood Fixture with Clear Tempered Glass. These HID Flood Lights come affixed to a "U" bracket for easy mounting to outdoor surfaces and an adjustable light stream. And each double-ended flood light has a greater lumen output than single element fixtures for a powerful effect. Each fixture is:
- Cast aluminum
- ETL approved for wet locations
- Yoke mount
- 70 Watt Max (lamps included)
Outdoor architectural lighting fixtures are fitted with a tempered glass lens that is heat resistant for durability. A bronze powder coated finish adds outdoor corrosion-resistance (call to request black). Choose metal halide or high-pressure sodium flood lights per preference. Please note: MH fixtures will put off a brighter, whiter glow than an HPS flood light.
Metal Halide vs. High Pressure Sodium Lamping
If you're wondering, "What is the difference between Metal Halide and High Pressure Sodium lamping?" please allow us to explain.
Metal Halides are actually a compound of metals with bromine or iodine in them. An electric arc is then passed through the aforementioned metal compounds and vaporized mercury. Since the 1960's metal halide fixtures have been projecting a brighter, whiter light than any other bulb.
High Pressure Sodium lights are a little different, but are still a high intensity gas discharge lamp (there are also low pressure (LPS) models, but we go big or go home when it comes to illumination! HPS lights are most recognizable in street lighting. The yellowish glow as you fly down the parkway is created when the lamp produces an electrical arc that passes through vaporized sodium metal. First products commercially in 1932, high-pressure sodium lamps are usually seen in commercial and industrial settings.
So which to choose? The answer really boils down to what color light you would like to see. When shopping for outdoor architectural lighting, choose Metal Halide for brighter and whiter light cast, and select High Pressure Sodium for a warmer, yellowish luminescence.
Use HID Flood Lights as Outdoor Architectural Lighting
Showcase architectural accents and landscape design using HID Flood Lights. While it does consume more energy than LED's, HID's do a far better job of illuminating than LED's ever could. LED's also project a blueish color light, which often detracts from signs, artwork and other features. High output light fixtures like this dual ended flood light will make your business signs sing, put your outdoor art pieces on a pedestal and draw attention to landscaped plants and trees.
