Low wattage, outdoolndoor luminaire. High pressure sodium, metal halide and mercury. So effective that it saves energy. So compact that it fits almost anywhere.

Bantam Prismatite uses a prismatic refractor, instead of a conventional globe, for more light and better light control.
Optics engineers know that refractor design determines how efficient
a luminaire

CHOICE OF LIGHT DISTRIBUTIONS.

Asymmetrical refractor series is ideal for lighting long, narrow


areas, such as walkways, loading

platformg and parking structures. It allows spacing up to 2t/2 limes as far apart as other units. For instance, PRTSMATITE spaced on 25' centers will provide the same

Conventional vertical-ribbed or clear globes simply transmit Iight rays virtually unimpeded, with about 40Va of lhe light emitted upward. For most outdoor applications, such upward light is wasted. PRISMATITE, on the other hand, bends the light into desired areas. This effect is achieved by a combination of the complex optical train of precisely-formed prisms and the carefully designed contour of the glass

S'.mmetrical refractor series is ideal for lighting general areas


such as open storage and outdoor stairs. Because the refractor directs more light downward and
