SCTP-LED Chinatown Pagoda

This modern interpretation of the traditional Chinese pagoda lantern was first used in New York's Chinatown Bowery neighborhood. The red and gold pagoda luminaire delivers an uninterupted hemisphere of light onto streets, plazas, and pedestrian pathways. Sentry’s optical system works in tandem with the prismatic globe to optimize light distribution while providing comfortable, pleasing illumination.  As specified, several configurations are available to provide the desired aesthetics and performance.

The SCTP is highly resistant to damage, weather and the passage of time. With its high-strength cast aluminum and heavy gauge spun aluminum structural elements, it is able to withstand the rigors associated with roadway and area lighting.  It features an impact-resistant acrylic or polycarbonate globe.  Right angled adapter style mounting. Optional photocell receptacle on top of right angled adapter.


The pagoda luminaire shall have a (4) sided canopy with a teardrop style fixture integrally mounted within the canopy. The fixture shall consist of a prismatic globe held in place with (3) solid catchs with thumb triggered secondary locks allowing easy access to the luminaire's interior. Globe shall be captivated such that globe shall not disengage fixture body accidentally. All castings shall be from high-strength ASTM 356.1 aluminum.

LED components and driver(s) are securely affixed to the mechanical structures. A thermal management system dissipates heat to insure compliance with ratings of the LED components and driver(s).


Injection-molded acrylic or polycarbonate prismatic globe in combination with LED module and internal reflectors and/or refractors to optimize performance, distribution, and visual comfort.

Available in Type III, or Type II with Backlight Reduction.  Additional configurations available upon request.


Meets UL 1598 for Safety. Luminaire shall utilize voltage sensing 120-277V driver, suitably rated for the specified LED light engines.  Luminaire shall be prewired and factory tested.

Surge Protection

Surge protected line-neutral, line-ground, and neutral-ground in accordance with ANSI/IEEE 62.41, Category C3.


To insure product durability, all exposed metallic surfaces shall be finished with a high performance coating consisting of high gloss Super Durable polyester powder coat paint to be applied utilizing a multi stage process that includes phosphate pretreatment, electrostatic powder application, and convection curing. Paint shall be weather, corrosion, abrasion, and UV resistant in compliance with the American Architectural Manufacturers Association’s specification AAMA 2604-05. Color to be specified.


Side mounts using a cast aluminum right angled adapter which accepts up to Ø2” pipe (Ø2 3/8” OD) and has a 4” depth. Two (2) 3/8”-16 UNC stainless steel allen head cup point set screws secure luminaire to mounting arm.
