We first looked at the actual railings. The railings are made to be as seamless as possible, and the fixtures in the handrails are fully wet listed.

This was the first fixture that we looked at. Matte and transparent lenses are available. Available in 2700K-5000K CCT. 5 beam spreads are available. This fixture is IP65 rated.


Lumenpod

The fixtures in Pod family are constructed to be vandal resistant. This fixture is IP67 rated. Available in 2700K-5000K CCT and 5 different beam spread.

The fixture with less curved form has an asymmetric distribution. It creates a clean line of cut-off on the back side.

The second fixture with more curvy look provides a symmetric distribution.


Bantam

This is a nice walkway fixture. They will sell just the fixture for other applications. Available in 2700K-5000K CCT.

The 10° forward throw in the presented sample is the smallest the can get. It's a great option as a bollard lighting in ground.

  • The Lights get attached to the rail on site.
  • The average price is $275/sqft for everything.
  • The Integral driver is a new option for rail lighting.
