SCPW Central Park West

Night comes alive along Manhattan's Central Park West via this compact acorn shaped luminaire. It was NYC's choice for that wide, tree-shaded walkway and remains the luminaire of choice for large expanses where practical lighting and elegance combine. Central Park West luminaires are handsome decor elements for most urban environments and especially for pedestrian walkways, malls, plazas and parks. They mate well with steel or aluminum poles, plain or sculptured, and look equally well when mounted on walls.  When pendant mounting, an optional integral Plumbizer ensures that the luminaire installs plumb.

SCPW 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.
