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.

Little Lindy®, A Better Post Top at a Great Price

Dingy yellow with no optical control.

Crystal clear with optical control and an elegant, updated look.


Value Pricing.  A.L.P. LexaLite® has leveraged manufacturing and sourcing efficiencies to drive costs out of our production process—and we are passing along the savings to you!  Slash costs even more by purchasing our one-piece version that does not require buying clamp bands, costly on-site assembly, or expensive ongoing maintenance.

Better Aesthetic. We have kept the traditional, turn-of-the-century look for a scenic post-top ambiance, as well as the cutting-edge photometric performance.   The Little Lindy® is available with a distinctive, optical design and is offered in UV stabilized acrylic.  It resists ugly yellowing and has a longer service life than blow-molded alternatives*.

Superior Performance. Today’s Little Lindy features the same unsurpassed optical design.  It is offered in Type III and Type V distributions.
