SMAL Memphis

The fresh, delicate look of this distinctive luminaire betrays no hint of its strong resistance to damage by vandalism. The dimpled polycarbonate globe resists damaging blows better than any other light transmitting material, yet is lightweight, UV stabilized and has excellent light transmission properties.

The sculptured high-strength cast aluminum base houses and protects the ballast assembly. The design lends itself to clustering in twos, threes, or, fours. It also mates well with a variety of cast iron, steel, or, aluminum posts.

SMAL 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.
