SBC4 Bishops Crook-4

The SBC4 Bishops Crook-4 luminaire remains a perennial favorite for street, park and plaza lighting. The downward facing prismatic globe delivers an uninterrupted hemisphere of directed light. It is structurally rugged, hence extremely vandal resistant. It is available in a broad range of lamping options, up to 250 watts in metal halide and high-pressure sodium, thus, making it eminently adaptable to a variety of public lighting applications.

Removable ballast plate for easy maintenance. Hinged refractor door for easy relamping. Mates magnificently with a plain, or, ornamented Bishops Crook pole to impart Renaissance urbanity to any street, plaza, or mall. An optional integral Plumbizer ensures that the luminaire installs plumb.

SBC4 is designed to utilize a wide range of light sources, including LED, high intensity discharge (HID), and others.  These light source families provide high efficiency in lumen output, service life and energy use.
