A.L.P. Introduces the Lineman™ Utility Grade Post-Top Globe

(Niles, IL) A.L.P. is pleased to announce the introduction of the Lineman™, a new utility-grade post-top globe. Designed to illuminate walkways, parks, and roadways, the Lineman features a nostalgic, turn-of-the-century shape with modern material choices for an economical alternative to other performance globes.

It is versatile, attractive, and affordable. The Lineman features a configurable top so that the appearance can be customized for any application. In addition, multiple finished shapes can be created by adding cap or finial options.

This new utility-grade post-top is easy to install and maintain. The innovative locking design allows the top and bottom to be efficiently shipped and then permanently field assembled with no tools. Manufactured in acrylic for longevity without discoloration, the Lineman is compatible with LED lamp sources and poles with a height of 10’ to 20’.

The Lineman is the latest addition to the 400 Series injection molded post-tops from the A.L.P. LexaLite brand. It can be shipped economically in two or three pieces. In addition, it has the same maximum diameter (15.9”) as A.L.P.’s popular The Lindy® refractor, offering the potential for component sharing.

For OEM and retrofit applications, A.L.P.’s traditionally styled Lineman post-top globe is a less expensive alternative to other performance optics that does not compromise on the durability and versatility integral to the 400 Series.

Press Release: A.L.P. Introduces the Rayder™, a Modern, High-Performance Prismatic Post-Top Sphere

(Niles, IL) -A.L.P. Lighting Components, a leading global manufacturer of lighting components and kits, has added the Rayder™ post-top prismatic sphere to its 400 Series injection molded optics for outdoor lighting.   The Rayder is designed to deliver a uniform distribution, higher efficiency, improved CRI, outstanding glare control, and a timeless appearance.

Today’s new post-top installations and retrofits need to be energy efficient, aesthetically pleasing, and provide safe illumination of walkways and streets.  The Rayder excels in applications where brightness control is a priority.  The Rayder’s optics reduce high angle glare and hide LED light sources while delivering a uniform glowing appearance.   The Rayder also offers a significant improvement in efficiency when compared to diffuse or translucent blow molded spheres.

Suitable for 10′ – 20′ poles, the assembled spheres are 19.2″ in diameter, and are available with either 8″ diameter neck or other custom bottom openings.  The Rayder is offered in Clear Optical Acrylic, Diffuse Acrylic, and Clear Polycarbonate.  The top and bottom halves are easily attached using the affixed UV stable high bond double-sided adhesive ribbon for fast assembly and mounting.  Acrylic versions are covered by a ten-year limited warranty.

“Optical glare control and the delivery of IES distributions are paramount features of A.L.P. LexaLite’s post top and dusk-to-dawn refractors,” says Kurt Puffpaff, National Sales Manager for Proprietary Products.  “Utilizing A.L.P.’s existing optical prescriptions will increase efficiency, reduce glare and deliver light where light is needed,” he states.  “Many fixtures incorporate white or diffuse lenses or no lenses at all.  Applying A.L.P.’s optical component will improve fixture performance and application effectiveness,” Puffpaff concludes.

A.L.P. is a leading global supplier of lighting components, offering a diverse line of products and services for lighting OEMs and the aftermarket. From LED to legacy applications, A.L.P. offers the industry’s most comprehensive line of LED fixture kits, vapor-proof enclosures, unwired fixture bodies, louvers, and reflectors. A.L.P.
