Athens, an architectural-grade outdoor pole-mounted luminaire with full cutoff performance, is the newest offering from HessAmerica. It is available in two sizes (one for pedestrian-scale applications and one for area lighting) with pole heights scaled accordingly. The pedestrian-scale model can accommodate 70W, 100W, or 150W ceramic metal halide lamps, while the larger version offers 150W or 250W ceramic metal halide lamping options. Both are available in single, twin, or bi-level mounting arrangements, and the housing and lens frame for both are die-cast aluminum. All hardware is stainless steel. Straight or tapered poles are available in aluminum or steel, and toolless access allows for easy maintenance. hessamerica.com
