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 Sentry® Barricade™ Lens for Outstanding Vaportight Performance

(Niles, IL) A.L.P. Lighting Components is pleased to announce the introduction of Sentry® Barricade™, a new 4-ft injection-molded low-profile lens. It is the newest addition to A.L.P.’s line of rugged lenses for the flagship Sentry® Series enclosed and gasketed fixture kits. Featuring a contemporary look and outstanding performance, the new lens modernizes the Sentry Series line while maintaining the existing benefits of robust construction and a large compartment size.

Designed by the injection molding experts from A.L.P. LexaLite®, Sentry Barricade’s molded-in texture offers superior lamp hiding. In addition, a new gasket compression rib results in superior sealing for extreme environments.

The Sentry Barricade lens is available in clear acrylic, Lumieo® (frosted acrylic), and clear polycarbonate. Regardless of the light source, the clear and Lumieo options provide visual comfort while maintaining high efficacy. The clear polycarbonate version will stand up to applications requiring impact resistance and is a more economical choice than A.L.P.’s current thermoformed offering.

Suspended vaportight Sentry enclosures are suitable for wet, damp, dusty, and cold applications such as parking garages, car washes, industrial buildings, and horticultural spaces. Samples are available now.

Press Release: A.L.P. Introduces LENA 16™, a Cost-Effective, High Performing, Low Profile Reflector

(Niles, IL) -A.L.P. Lighting Components, a leading global manufacturer of lighting components and kits, has added the LENA 16™ shallow prismatic reflector to the “S Series” of optics.  Designed for low-, mid- and high-bay LED fixtures, it offers superior glare control and an elegant aesthetic, combined with the versatility to accommodate a variety of light sources without expensive modifications.

The LENA 16 has a shallow design, optimizing cost without sacrificing high angle brightness control.  The 10.36” flat top allows it to be easily adapted and directly attached to many fixtures. The lower flange works with a wide range of bottom lenses and standard clamp bands.  The top can be cut to order with an opening of up to 10.66 inches.

Like their HID predecessors, today’s LED low-, mid- and high-bay fixtures should always be installed with optical or refractive control.  Without this control, they emit high angle glare, causing a reduction in contrast and negatively affecting color and focus.  By reducing high angle glare, LENA 16 improves visual comfort, provides even illumination, and can also increase worker efficiency in some settings.  It is suitable for warehouse, industrial, commercial, and retail applications.

LENA 16 is available in Clear Acrylic, Clear Polycarbonate, Interface Acrylic, and Lumieo® Acrylic.  It works with a wide range of LexaLite® brand bottom lenses.

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. Brands include Steel Craft, LexaLite®, and Reflek®
