SUS-LED Union Square

Originally created for the restoration of New York City's Union Square, the Union Square luminaire provides a classic globe design while delivering the benefits associated with solid state lighting technology.  With its distinctive spherical globe, it adds a special touch to the decor of any park, street, plaza or walk.

The SUS with LED provides several choices of the most current light engine technology to deliver high lumen output, superior visual comfort, extended service life, and energy reduction.  The standard globe is UV-stabilized polycarbonate.  The cast aluminum decorative base mates esthetically with a variety of posts.


Decorative base shall be of high strength ASTM 356.1 cast aluminum. Seamless blow-molded polycarbonate, or, acrylic globe shall create a weather tight chamber for the LED components and driver(s). Globe shall be easily removable to allow for maintenance.

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).


Seamless blow-molded polycarbonate, or, acrylic globe in combination with internal optic. White globe creates a subtle light diffusing effect to optimize visual comfort.


Meets UL 1598 for Safety.  Luminaire shall utilize voltage sensing 120-277V driver, suitably rated for the specified LED light engine. LED rated life shall be no less than 50,000 hours.  Luminaires 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.


Mounts to a 3” diameter by 3” tall tenon. Three (3) 3/8”-16 UNC stainless steel allen head cup point set screws secure luminaire to post top tenon. All mounting hardware shall be stainless steel.
