SLNS Museum Liberty Lantern

This luminaire was designed to illuminate the grounds of the Philadelphia Art Museum. This graceful luminaire features fine detailing and a smaller globe for use in neo-classic architectural surroundings. This fixture is built with an internal borosilicate glass refractor. Structural components are of high-strength cast aluminum and polycarbonate globe.

Ballast assembly is situated deep within the cast hood for maximum protection. All these attributes make it highly resistant to damage, weather and the passage of time.

SLNS is designed to utilize a wide range of light sources, including LED, High Intensity Discharge (HID), and others. These light source families provide the highest efficiency in lumen output, service life and energy use.


All components including the hood shall be high-strength ASTM 356.1 cast aluminum. Globe shall be polycarbonate with molded-in patterns on globe surface. The luminaire shall be comprised of a "floating" bullet-shaped globe supported by (4) decorative struts. A decorative cast ring shall connect with the support struts and receive the hood and globe. Luminaire shall be welded creating one integral housing with a removable hood for relamping. Luminaire shall create a weather-tight chamber for the ballast assembly, lamp and internal optics.


SLNS has an injection-molded UV stabilized polycarbonate stippled globe, borosilicate glass refractor and aluminum reflector that creates a symmetrical or asymmetrical light distribution.

SLNS-120 has an injection-molded UV stabilized polycarbonate or high impact acrylic prismatic globe and aluminum reflector that creates a symmetrical or asymmetrical light distribution.

Available in a wide range of lamp choices and wattage ratings including High Intensity Discharge (HID) and Incandescent.


Meets UL 1598 for Safety. Luminaire shall have porcelain socket rated for 600V with 4kV pulse and uses a nickel-plated screw shell with spring-loaded center contact and lamp grips. Luminaires shall be prewired and factory tested. The ballast shall be a high power factor, constant wattage autotransformer type. The power factor shall be at least 90%.


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 multistage 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.
